I have OpenVz installed on Fedora 15. In my host OS I am able to install packages such as iperf.

However, when I'm inside a container (logged in a root on the container), I get the following error message:

yum -v install iperf

Config time 0.168 Yum Version: 3.2.29 Setting up Package Sacks pkgsack time: 0.099 rpmdb time: 0.000 Setting up Install Process Checking for virtual provide or file-provide for iperf No package iperf available. Error: Nothing to do

The host OS and the container have the same set of repositories listed in /etc/yum.repos.d.

What is really perplexing to me is I've have this working on a different install of Fedora 15 with OpenVZ. I can't figure out what's different about this install.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
