    I installed Fedora Core 5 succesfully, I tried to open the Package manager (typed "pirut" in run Command and from it's shortcut ) but there was a problem with it .

    When I open it, after typing the root password, it just loads for a while ..
    Then it gives a message ("Unable to retrieve software information") ?!!!!
    I click on ok and it closes ..

    I tried to find a solution .. I unistalled it with the Terminal (hoping it is going to work) ..
    then Installed it (took the rpm from the install CD)
    But still the same error message

    It's been about a year since the first time I used Linux ..
    But Im still newbie because I used Linux for a while then left it ..
    but now Im using it again and willing to leave Windoze ...

    I dont know how to fix this problem, I had it a few weeks ago and Im trying and searching for a solution

    I dont know if I missed to configure something or if anyone had similar problem .. my distro and system information is in my sinature ..

    I had two problems before..
    The first is that I was trying to run pirut in KDE not Gnome..
    (I wasnt aware that i can NOT run it in KDE)

    I could not update/install in pirut from the internet
    because the proxy i am behind is a win poxy which uses domain in addition to user/pass.
    Got a temporary solution by exporting the proxy domain,user & pass in the terminal,

    Hope that helps.
