Default The Perfect Setup - CentOS 5.0 (32-bit) - Page 3

Hi all,

after installing CentOS 5.0 I had problems to run "yum update". I always got an error message "temporary failure in name resolution" !

I've googled for a lot of hours and found a hint under: http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/...=7843&forum=37 !!!

I you use a static IP-Address and you also have problems to run the command "# yum update" then try adding your dns server ip to /etc/resolv.conf

For example:


Best regards
