    Slow YUM and DNS lookups?

    I have got a dedicated server running Fedora Core 7.

    My problem is that I am trying to run yum updates using the default repos and it failes to respond and check any mirrors?

    I have tried to disable ipv6 and changed some tcp timeout settings along with the resolver.conf name servers and has appeared to fix the wget timeouts but yum is still slow.

    Thanks in advance.

    If the download is slow it's probably the mirror. ctrl-c out of that and it will try another mirror.

    I made resolver.conf just the OpenDNS servers I have added. Took out all the hosts dns ones.

    The yum is fixed and updates properly and quickly. The only remaining issue is the wget. It resolves websites and gets to here:

    # wget http://apache.tradebit.com/pub/httpd/httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz
    --01:43:17-- http://apache.tradebit.com/pub/httpd/httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz
    => `httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz'
    Resolving apache.tradebit.com... 67.15.215.203
    Connecting to apache.tradebit.com|67.15.215.203|:80...

    are u able to telnet to apache.tradebit.com or dig it from your server. Seems like anopther dns resolution issue. Try another mirror for direct download or the source IP
