I can't install python-setuptool with yum on Ubuntu using the following command:

sudo yum install python-setuptools

I get this message

Setting up Install Process
No package python-setuptool available.

So I checked my repolist

sudo yum repolist

that returned

repolist: 0

Which repository should I add, Or what else could I be missing?

Thanks in advance

Use aptitude in Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

Thanks @Raystafarian. What about adding repolist to yum ? I'm still interested in learning how to do it. – svassr Mar 11 '12 at 2:37
