ok I did this, and then did some yum install - works without timeout
where could I tell yum to use existing mirrors in my near instead of one
on the other side of the world?

in this config I saw remarked the following:


when I set enabled=1 and removed the #-comment on this line
'yum list kernel'
shows this:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
