When I try to run yum update I get the following:
http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL5/latest/i386/getPackage/libgcj-4.1.2-54.el5.i386.rpm: [Errno 4] Socket Error: timed out
Trying other mirror.
Error Downloading Packages:
libgcj-4.1.2-54.el5.i386: failure: getPackage/libgcj-4.1.2-54.el5.i386.rpm from el5_latest: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
All the other packages download fine.

Or you could use yumdownloader instead via something like "yumdownloader libgcj".... and then install it with yum. Really, though, you should be able to re-try yum and get the rpm to install/download directly. I was able to get the rpm to download when I clicked the link in the OP.
Can I download the problem packages from ie. RPM and install those two locally? IF so, how to get get about it? I have been trying for two days now and no luck!
