Yum Installation Issue
Hi All
When i try to install packages on my box using yum it is giving out errors. My box is Redhat 9. my yum is " yum-2.0.3-0.fdr.1.rh90 "

When i try to install one package say webmin it is giving the following error.

[root@BBand root]# yum install webmin
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Linux / stable for Red Hat Linux 9 (i386)
retrygrab() failed for:
Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 307: Temporary Redirect
[root@BBand root]#

wht changes should be done in /etc/yum.conf file. As of now i didnt make any change. Its all the default conf file. Is that making the issue ?

Looking forward to hear from you

Thanks and regards

RedHat 9 is very old, so I guess the problem is that the repositories don't exist anymore... But you can install the Webmin rpm from here:
