Hello there. I finaly got really frustrated and decided to ask for help.
Cpanel was telling me that I need to update my apache to 4.4.2 from 4.4.1 and also update my frontpage extensions.

I run
Fedora Core 1

I tried by going to scritps/easyapache, and I would get:

Fetching http://layer1.cpanel.net/buildapache.sea (0)[email protected]%...3%...5%...6%...8%...10%...11%...13%...15%...17%...18%...20%...22%...23%...25%...27%...29%...30%...32%...34%...35%...37%...39%...41%...42%...44%...46%...47%...49%...51%...53%...54%...56%...58%...59%...61%...63%...65%...66%...68%...70%...71%...73%...75%...76%...78%...80%...82%...83%...85%...87%...88%...90%...92%...94%...95%...97%...99%...100%......Done

Then I tried:

I also tried:
[~]# whereis yum
yum: /usr/bin/yum /etc/yum.conf /usr/share/yum /usr/share/man/man8/yum.8.gz

Please help me. Thank you

looks like you just have a bad fedora mirror

ttp://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/1/

this one works
How would I enter this mirror into the server?

Thanks for advice but I still get the same error :(
You can download and instal the glibc rpm binary package at: http://rpm.pbone.net/ and search for glibc package comptaible with your OS. You may want to seek professional help.

THanks for all of your help. I was able to fix this problem. If anyone runs into this problem this is what I did. (Thanks dalem for mirror info :) )

#pico /etc/yum.conf

and I changed yum.conf so it looks like:

[main]
exclude=courier* apache* mod_ssl* httpd* perl mysql* php* spamassassin* kernel* exim*
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=fedora-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1

[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
#baseurl=http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-$releasever
baseurl=ftp://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
#baseurl=http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/released/fedora-core-$releasever
baseurl=ftp://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch

#[updates-testing]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates

Go on, have a guess
If you're using FC1 then you should use the FedoraLegacy distribution as the OS is long dead and supported now, though not much, through them (unless the one you've used is a FL mirror).

This error also happens if YUM is hung up from a previous attempt. If you receive this error also do a `ps -ef|grep -i yum` to ensure no previous yum updates are stuck.

If there are previous ones kill the processes and retart easyapache and it sould work fine at that point.
