I'm also getting issues trying to yum install some basic dev tools here on the XO-1.75, have you get a chance to poke a stick at this one yet or is it something new? Here's the output I get:

[olpc at xo-6d-5e-7c ~]$ sudo yum install -y vim git pylint
fedora/metalink                                                           | 1.0
kB     00:00     
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 :
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.
Please verify its path and try again
