Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: pidgin. Please verify its path and try again
I typed 'which yum' and it says user/bin/yum
nothing about yum in user/bin/local tree.
EDIT: Ok I was able to get the package updators packagelist, but any time I try to apply anything, the dependencies can not be resolved.

I actually am getting the same err message about the repos on F11. I believe what you need to do is reinstall F11 and in a section of the installer you choose which repositories to include. I'm just going to reinstall F11 now so I'll see what happens.

I sure hope thats not the case. I misplaced my installation CDs, and well, if I was going to download fedora again, seems like I might as well get FC13 :/

Then is there another way to fix this? Once I get yum to work, im pretty much set.

Probably. What's the current status? What does yum check-upate and yum repolist show? Also, what version of Fedora are you currently using?Glenn

Both of those show that same error from before:
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in <module> yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True) File "yummain.py", line 254, in user_main errcode = main(args) File "yummain.py", line 88, in main base.getOptionsConfig(args) File "cli.py", line 203, in getOptionsConfig self.plugins.run('args', args=args) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/plugins.py", line 170, in run raise ValueError('unknown slot name "%s"' % slotname) ValueError: unknown slot name "args"
And like I said before. Im running FC11

What if you try with plugins disabled?
yum --noplugins check-updateGlenn
