Description Telikicherla Tarakanath 2006-04-18 10:28:13 EDT
Description of problem:

I have installed FC5 with only some basic installation and wanted to Install
some more packages after the installation was complete.  I tried to install by
using Add/Remove Software from the Applications menu.  After the Package Manager
application opens, a dialog box opens which says "Retrieving Software
Information". After some time I get an error which says "Unable to retrive
software information"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login into root user
2. Naviage to Applications > Add/Remove Software
Actual results:

Error dialog box appears with information "Unable to retrieve software information"

Expected results:

A list of Packages installed in the system have to be displayed

Do you have a network connection?
Comment 2 Telikicherla Tarakanath 2006-04-19 00:31:11 EDT
I have got a DHCP configured and I can access the internet as well.
Comment 3 Telikicherla Tarakanath 2006-04-19 05:23:28 EDT
Could you tell any check list I can follow before I can try updating the software ?
Comment 4 Telikicherla Tarakanath 2006-04-19 05:25:54 EDT
Could you tell me if there is anything I have to see or check before I can try
updating the software ?
