RPM Fusion Mirrors and Livna Errors. Help Needed!

    I have been having a devil of a time getting Fedora 10 to find repositories. Keep coming up with errors saying that the repositories are not valid, they lack keys and nobody's home.

    Command line updating of sources fails - says the repository does not exist (adobe, Fusion and Livna) and will not install or update.

    GUI software update fails and says that package list was not refreshed and should have been done in the backend.

    FireFox finds the web, I can download and upload, surf and even find network shares without issues. The only issue is that I can not seem to get the package updates, mirror lists and repository information to come thru. This is killing me as I need to update the ATI drivers and pull in information on my monitor. As it sits right now the display is stuck at [email protected] and I can not find any way to change the hardware settings for either monitor or graphics card.


    Any suggestions?

    That 'HowTo' was helpful to a certain point but I am beginning to think that Livna has been having some network downtime. I had followed those steps from the same article on a different site as well and have come up with similar reports.

    Both RPM commands (Uvh) come back with errors related to the site "not found" or "does not contain sources" errors. I can surf to sites, download files and even upload/download on FTP without issues so I have to assume that the TCP/IP and Networking is correctly configured on this machine.

    Just for grins I loaded up OpenSuSE 11.1 (finally got it working LOL) on a second 40gb drive and it has ZERO issues with repository setup and updates. I would really prefer to have Fedora up and running for a server as it appears to be more efficient in that role. If I can get this dang repository situation ironed out I will be much happier.

    BTW this machine is destined to be a WebServer on my LAN (Intranet and Internet) so this update process is critical.

    You could download the rpm packages to your desktop system and then upload them to the server (e.g. with scp) and then install them using
    rpm -Uvh /path/to/package

    I am not going to be using this computer in a home/office setup. It will be dedicated to server tasks mainly Intranet/web hosting and FTP services. I do not intend to have a monitor or KBD hooked up so moving files to the desktop then unpacking them or updating them would not be feasible.

    I don't want you to install a desktop on a server. What I meant to say is download the file to your desktop (e.g. your Windows system) and then upload the file to the server (e.g. with WinSCP).
