Question Package manager not working.

I am using Fedora core 7 default installation. Whenever I start the Package manager a small window opens saying "Retrieving software information" with a progress bar. the progress bar does not show any progress and the application hangs. I am using internet through a proxy server and i have configured the yum for the proxy it is working fine. Please help I am a newbie and have just started working on Linux.

You say yum works through the terminal?

Try running "yum clean all" through the terminal then try Pirut.

Also, consider installing yumex: "yum install yumex" It is better than Pirut.
