    I can not acces yum repository although I have installed yum public repo

      Hi I'm Can Masagi form Indonesia.

      I try to install Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 update 2 on HP DL385 G7 at my office. installation is successful and then I try to install public yum repo from page http://public-yum.oracle.com/

      I try to execute a command from that page such as:

      wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo

      and the terminal displaying:
      "--2010-09-06 11:41:42-- http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo
      Resolving public-yum.oracle.com... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.
      wget: unable to resolve host address `public-yum.oracle.com'"

      Later i try to write te repo manually via Gedit on my machine.... Then I try the command yum list as the page said, but the result is like this:

      Loaded plugins: security
      http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/EnterpriseLinux/EL5/5/base/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
      Trying other mirror.
      Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: el5_u5_base. Please verify its path and try again


      Frankly speaking I'm so confused...., since I try to ping the public-yum.oracle.com domain the result is like this:
      [root@localhost yum.repos.d]# ping public-yum.oracle.com
      ping: unknown host public-yum.oracle.com


      Why could this happen? and Ho can I solve this problem to run OLE 5 u 5 for my organization?

      Thankyou very much...
