Fedora 12 yum.conf setup

Salaam everyone, i’m stuck. I’m new to fedora and was wondering how does one edit yum.conf to include the uct leg baseulrs. I know the baseurls, it’s putting them in the yum.conf file that’s troubling me. PLZ help

off the top of my head...

you need to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo, in each one:

  • comment out the “mirrorlist=” line (using a # symbol)
  • uncomment the “baseurl=” line and change the value to the appropriate URL

Fedora 12 Livna Setup

I am having a problem adding the livna repository. I created a repo file in /etc/yum.repo.d/ called livna.repo with following content:

name=Livna $releasever - $basearch

When I try to refresh my package list it gives me this error:

Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: livna. Please verify its path and try again

Any idea where its going wrong. Appreciate any help.

The baseurl for livna should

The baseurl for livna should be http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/rpm-repositories/livna/repo/$releasever/$basearch/

Sorry, that’s a mistake on our mirror page; I’ll fix it now.
