How to install yum on Fedora Core 6

hi,

I have installed yum through rpm -ivh yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm.

The result came as

[root@02e7709 ~]# rpm -ivh yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm Preparing... ########################################### [100%] package yum-3.0-6 is already installed

I used this To query a RPM package, using the command:

[root@02e7709 ~]# rpm -q yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm

Reply as follows:

[root@02e7709 ~]# rpm -q yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm package yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm is not installed

both give different reply. But yum not installed I think.

Whats the problem here package yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm is not installed

I used

yum install subversion

This follows

[root@02e7709 ~]# yum install subversion

Loading "installonlyn" plugin

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Just out of curiosity: why on earth are you still using FC6? Fedora 13 will be out in a month or two... –  wzzrd Mar 15 '10 at 11:43

1 Answer 1

The repositories for Fedora Core 6 aren't there anymore.

FC 6 support ended when FC 8 came out. If you want to run a supported OS, you are going to have to upgrade. I am sure this will be very complicated going from Fedora Core 6 up to Fedora 12 and will probably mean a reinstall.

Certainly if this is a production server I would question how security patches are being applied. I think the answer will probably be they aren't.

Edit: To answer you question: baseurl for repo is the "base URL for the repository". In other words the location of the updates available. As FC 6 is not supported the repository is no longer available.

Alternatively you could install subversion from source.
