[root@localhost ~]# yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel gcc

Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit 
***Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: fedora/18/x86_64. Please verify its path and try again***

I solved this problem, but encountered another... Here is the story, saga which continues!

Done the following as root/supeuser:

Masked "#mirrorlist=" and unmasked "baseurl=" in '/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo' '/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo'

yum clean all

yum repolist

cd /var/lib/rpm 

rm -f __db* 

rpm --rebuilddb 

yum repolist  

[root@localhost rpm]# yum check-update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

*** [Errno 14] curl#7 - "Couldn't connect"
Trying other mirror.

How to solve heading of this topic (make it connect/work)?

reinstalling the repo RPMS should have done it. you can clean out your cache: [code]yum clean all/code] but I doubt that would fix your problem.

It sounds more like you are having DNS issues - are you sure your Fedora box getting out to the internet? Can you resolve the ip address of the server in the repo URL? e.g.: Code: host Note: host command is part of the bind-utils package.

Check your DNS settings: Code: cat /etc/resolv.conf Make sure your default route is set: Code: route -n

Not sure if permissions are messing up with your setup. Try to change/switch to superuser, and try to do/set CATALINA_HOME again.

2013-01-29 01:40:41 -0500 answered a question Fedora 18 Live CD Boot Fail

Please, try the following: stop in GRUB, edit the Linux command line: add " nomodeset" at the end of the command line, then continue and see if you can boot to linux console (no GFX)?!


2013-01-29 01:37:13 -0500 answered a question F18: nvidia drivers - system hangs on boot

You can try to do the following:

[1] Set Linux command line in GRUB simple to nomodeset (change modeset=0 to nomodeset), and see if you do boot to text mode (runinit 3). Actually, you should have "nomodeset 3" to have multiuser run.

[2] Once you are able to boot to your 6 getty consoles, you should be able to go to kernel tree, and find .config to see if your GForce 635M is set (CONFIG NVIDIA bla bla bla), and find if this is Y or M. Try to run CLI command "make menuconfig" and then go to device drivers to see which drivers are set, which are not.

[3] Good to read:

[1] YES, it is worth, but you do need to stick with it long term, to benefit from The History.

[2] The Best is to re-install from fresh Fedora 18. If you partitioned your HDD correctly, it will be an easy task, if you are proficient Linux user. If you are not (proficient user), you need to be very careful. Your kernel and initrd will go to /boor partition, and will not mess up with the rest of the system. If you have /home partition as distinct, your personal data/projects are safe.

[3] You should ask my/your Best Friend:!

Have no idea. On my SNB desktop Fedora 18 as Guess OS on the top of VMware Reader 5.0.1 (Fedora-18-x86_64 DVD installation.iso - 4.3 GB): for KDE X11 environment works OK. And I was able to install VMware Tools as well.

2013-01-23 05:45:30 -0500 answered a question upgrade from F17 32-bit to F18 64-bit using Fedup

I don't think so (NOT possible). Because you have two crucial dependencies, one is on kernel level (you are using 32-bit kernel), another one is application level (/ tree, all applications are written for 32bit mode).

Hence, if you upgrade your kernel to 64bit, and rest of application downloads, in the last kernel bringup phase, your kernel will hang. Why? Since 64bit kernel cannot transfer thread of execution to your 32bit / tree.
