Re: [K12OSN] 5.0 EL repos dead/outdated?

Does your school use a proxy server to get to the internet? You may have to tell yum to use the proxy server:

Thanks, Tim.  Each of my .repo files have "enabled=1".  Just to see if
it would update from another site I brought my server home.  It's
currently downloading the updates.  I did nothing different with the
update process, just opened up the terminal and typed in "yum update"
and started downloading the headers and is installing without a hitch.
 The only difference is the site.  I was at school with it gave me an
error that there were no mirrors to try and at home it's downloading
the updates just fine.  Our school connects to a school and library
network that has a firewall.  If anyone knows which firewall port
should be turned off so that I can call and have them temporarily
allow the port to be opened, I won't have to drag the other three
k12ltsp servers home! :)

Vi -

RPM repositories can be ftp or http (for the most part).  If you have a look
at /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo you will see files that control the various
repositories available to you.  If the file has 'enabled=1', it is
considered.  The actual location of the repository is found in the 'baseurl=
...' line.  That is a direct pointer to a repository.  Larger repos often
have mirrors, which are controlled by a mirror list.  This shows up in the
*.repo on the 'mirrorlist= ...' line.

good luck

Hello.  I tried this suggestion but it still cannot update.  The error
I am getting is:
Error: failure: 5.2/libgcj-4.1.2-42.el5.i386.rpm from k12ltsp: [Errno
256] No more mirrors to try.
Someone had suggested a firewall issue and that may be my problem.
Does anyone know which port yum uses to update?  Thanks,

Hello List,

 Still wrangling with my yum problems on my new install of 5 EL K12LTSP.
am thinking now it is possibly a firewall problem. I have done many
installs of K12LTSP from here at school with no problems behind our
firewall. Yesterday I did try and add in the Network Proxy setting of
school's firewall( which I have never had to do in the past) in
preferences. This did not help any. WHen I try and yum install ( from a
terminal) the rpm tries to download but I always get " Header not
complete" I've heard of these in serveral posts,but do not really know
how to troubleshoot it?  I can of course download rpms manually but I am
trying to install vlc, and there are dependencies as long as your arm to
get this to install!Should I be able to telnet on port whatever to say
mesd/k12ltsp download site to see if i get a response? Anyone have any

You may want to try changing the repos to point to ftp rather than http.

Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo

and change:
