on tower box, yumex errs out on startup with error message;

  Error in repository setup

  Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base

  You can try starting 'yumex -n' from a command line
  and deselecting the repositories causing problems
  and try again.

file CentOS-Base.repo is line for line same on both tower box and
laptop. no problems on laptop.

what might be causing err?
