i got 9.1 and can't download os, software, etc. this is on example of
what it says when i do so but tried several times with other applications:

--

Could not open the file
archive://file%3a%2f%2f%…r.gz/jwebmail-0.7/INSTALL.

gedit cannot handle archive: locations.

That is not how applications are installed. Try using `yumex`, if it's not
there you can install it by opening a terminal and running:

su - (enter root password)
yum install yumex


You can also run:
yum search foo (to search for "foo")
yum install foo (to install "foo")

I have been working for 2 days to install a couple of apps and I find your information incorrect at best but surely misleading.[/quote]

Maybe you have to modify the repositories. You can see here: http://forums.blagblagblag.org/viewtopic.php?t=5054

My point is that the command as given is not going to work. If a person is going to instruct another in doing a task, the instructions should be complete, not half hearted which will just cause more confusion. This reminds me of the early days of MSDOS and command com. I wrote code in command com and basic and both are very strict on syntax the big difference in that MS gave a complete book on the coding for command com.

The command was given in September 2008 and the repositories changed on December.
The person who gave the command was the person who made Blag!

Makes no difference, it doesn't work. If the data is no longer useful why is it still being displayed?

It's a forum, here!
Change the repository as I said before and all will go fine. After changing the repo you have to remake the cache.
Code:

su yum clean all
su yum makecache

And maybe you can be less aggressive!
We need help to develop the next version of blag. Maybe you can help?
