If you get this problem, that means one of the fedora servers that
you're trying to connect to isn't resolving from your location, just
re-run up2date/yum until it works.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your advice,
I did, but I get again an error:

*****************************************

[root at ...13288... etc]# up2date yum
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/up2date-mirrors/fedora-core-3
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/up2date-mirrors/updates-released-fc3
There was some sort of I/O error: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure
in name resolution')>

******************************************
We dont have DNS server in-house, but make use of the
ISPs DNS server, Is it something to do with 'named'
daemon?


Thanks,
Pradeep
