Hello I just installed Fedora 8 from LiveCD yesterday and tried adding some software.
Pirut is just "Retrieving software information" and this operation does not appear.
When I try installing something using yum I get the following output:

Same issue here although in a Virtual PC-environment.

Did you configure your proxy settings right? How do you connect to the web? Can you connect with your browser?

I'm using a WMware installation and I can connect to the internet just fine. There are no proxy settings necessary, since this is a direct connection
