3. Run 'yum update' without errors and have a FC5 installation with this problem.

Comment 1 JeeBee 2006-03-24 20:19:30 UTC
Duhhh, sorry, I am not being very clear.
The problem was the "nisplus" in the hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf.
  hosts:      files nisplus dns

After removing nisplus there, both wget and 'yum update' worked again.
