CentOS No Comments

greetings,

wicd is preventing firefox and yumex to connect to internet.

when i first try to connect to a web site with firefox, i get err message;

Unable to connect

when i click [Try Again], connection is made. all further connection attempts are ok.

when i try to run yumex, i get error message;

Not connected to a network.
Do you want to continue

selecting [Yes] continues starting yumex, but i have active repositories.

when i run yum cl command;

]$ yum check-update
Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, fastestmirror, presto,
: refresh-packagekit, security, tmprepo, verify, versionlock
Determining fastest mirrors
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.CentOS.org/?release=6&
arch=x86_64&repo=os error was
14: PYCURL ERROR 6 – “Couldn’t resolve host ‘mirrorlist.CentOS.org'”
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base

when i run yum cl command again;

]$ yum check-update
Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, fastestmirror, presto,
: refresh-packagekit, security, tmprepo, verify, versionlock
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
epel/metalink | 13 kB 00:00

which indicates yum has made connection.

a 4th problem i see with ‘wicd’ is in post “Subject: wicd problem”;

4: wicd restarts itself when as root user making terminal commands
