    For yum related queries: http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...l_applications

    please look into the /etc/yum.repos.d and
    It contains one file each for one single repos. just copy one file and edit it and add alocal repository and then you have yum running on your local network.
    other commands of interest:
    yum, createrepo ...

    while iam using wget command at the prompt , it shows me a error like , the "host addr cannot resolved" .
    It indicates the failure of DNS resolution. Either your /etc/resolv.conf file points to an invalid DNS server or ur DNS server is down.

    try running nslookup or dig to find out if you are able to resolve names.
