I'm trying to install pdflatex to avoid the errors that I get in the notebook:

Error: PDFLaTeX does not seem to be installed.  Download it from and try again.

For this I typed the command yum install texlive', but got following error:

Could not retrieve mirrorlist from 14 PYCURL ERROR 7

But however, the virtual machine is reaching properly the network. Any idea in order to install properly pdflatex? thanks.

Sorry, but this is certainly not Sage-specific problem, rather it is a CentOS-specific weirdness If you google this error, you'll see plenty of discussions about it; apparently it's about ip6.
