Hello,
I have CentOS 3.9 for i386. When I try to instal some thing with yum, i.e:
yum install firefox
or
yum install firefox*
or
yum list firefox
and so on, I get:
+++++++++++++++++++
yum info firefox
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: CentOS-3 - Addons
Server: CentOS-3 - Base
Server: CentOS-3 - Extras
Server: CentOS-3 - Updates
Server: Jason's Utter Ramblings Repo
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Looking in Available Packages:

Looking in Installed Packages:

Some time ago I had CentOS 5, and I had the similar problem (exept of firefox all other packages were not installed) and I spent very much time to find different repositories and so on.

Now I have CentOS 3, and there is nothing I can install with yum.
This is yum.conf content:
+++++++++++++++++++
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
installonlypkgs=kernel kernel-smp kernel-hugemem kernel-enterprise kernel-debug kernel-unsupported kernel-smp-unsupported kernel-hugemem-unsupported
tolerant=1
exactarch=1

The file is too long, so I littely edited it.

So my question is: is there some "normal" one repository that have all basic thing like firefox and so that I will insert to this file and all will work fine?

Thank you very much for ahead.
