Hi im linux beginner.

I have a serious problem .

That is linux instruction 'yum'.

When i use

yum install <gcc or ncurses or etc..>

I recieve '....

repomd.xml...' error message .

Then i searched same problem in google.

They suggest various solutions ..

First , change the DNS address.

I did it but it didnt work.

Second , change baseurl in '.repo file'

I found many mirror site and changed the url.

It didnt work too.. (may be.. make a mistake ..?)

Beyound this task , I did other solution..

But didnt work..

Even my friends baseurl is same my thing and his 'yum' is very well done.. my Fedora didnt works T_T..

Is there problem in my computer..? or network?

Help me .. please ..

Please post your fedora.repo file from /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory

Advice you to check all files in /etc/yum.repos.d directory to see if there is Yum configuration out of date.
