yum hangs without an error message, at least, so it appears... So if a repository (repo) does not respond, the error takes 30 seconds to appear... try the url that is displayed by your yum (indicated above in red) in your web browser.

This might bethe reason for the "socket error" in yum.When you say "stop downloading", what do you mean?Clean stop?

Anyone know what the problem is? But then I was able to ftp onefile which was 5M.Ljubomir, you are correct in that it's some kind of network problem--well, it could have something to do with limits or I'll try this evening when I get home. except the right two numbers (following "eta")will continue to climb higher...

Inshort, the download just stops or freezes. it's possible and happens often that a socket is set up and no data is saved/written locally.

for this and other reasons I'm pretty sure I don't have a network problem. But it's been working fine for years and there's been no changes to yum.conf. Network error message? navigate here I haven't tried.

same deal. It worked. That way, yum'sd/b will be correct.mark reply | permalink Ken It's not necessary. But then it's possible that the yum code is saying it's a socket error when it's actually some other kind of error.
