cannot yum install mercurial

on VM Pro 4.06 Pro

[root@blahblah]# yum install mercurial

However, on another VM host (GPL) it was able to install fine.



Howdy -- hmm, that's odd, as I can actually see it in the mirror that you're using.

I'm curious what happens if you try to manually install it using RPM.

You can do that with this command, if you're using a 64bit distro:

rpm -ivh

and this command if you're using a 32bit distro:

rpm -ivh

[root@blahblah]# rpm -ivh  Retrieving

is there a way to try to yum install it from another mirror?

I finally got it installed by

# sudo yum install python-setuptools python-devel gcc -y
# sudo easy_install Mercurial

close ticket pls.
