yunikes,


You can use the apt-get instead. Yum was created to be like apt-get
The same functionality as yum. I dont know if that will work that you use yum it has different repository than ubuntu. Maybe experts can help you but im suggesting you use the apt-get instead.

cheers.

yunikes,
you can try 'aptitude install yum' or alias yum='sudo apt-get '.
