View Full Version : livna-devel repo unreachable

title says it all, comes up with a 404 error when i try to update yum with livna enabled
what can i do?
12th April 2008, 05:01 PM
yum --disablerepo=livna-devel update or, wait and try later? Edit: Looks like it's "livna-development". So, try with 'yum --enablerepo=livna-development update' and see if it works. The repo name in Fedora 8 is shown as 'livna-devel.repo', but called up as 'livna-development'.

tried both... problem is that i need the livna repos in order to install my gfx and wifi drivers. tried doing it manually but taking care of the dependencies is too hard.
specifically the error is an errno 14, with the http 404 error

I don't think Livna has F9 repositories yet. They will probably release at the same time as F9 final.
Edit: Umm, just kidding, sorry I'm dumb.

Install the Fedora 8 Livna: http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/ and then choose the livna-devel.repo as 'enabled'; the regular Fedora8 as disabled. And, for cripes sakes, don't refer to yourself as 'dumb'. Trying to get a jump on the next stable release; takes guts...okay, maybe not brains ;) .. but certainly not 'dumb'.
As info, I've got Fedora 8 on my main partition and Fedora 9 Beta on a side partition..for fun!
BTW, here's my livna-devel.repo which is working just fine as of this minute:
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Development Tree
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Development Tree - Debug
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Development Tree - Source

Awesome. I have been looking on how to add the livna repos too so I can get some things. Thanks a ton!!!

thanks dawgs! i was trying to install livna-devel repo with the livna release rpm in the devel folder in their repo, didn't know that i had to install the fedora 8 release rpm and then select devel tree repo

Hmm... i installed the Fedora 8 Livna, enabled livna-devel.repo and i get this message:
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/8.93/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found

You need to disable the livna repo (the regular one).

Today is May 4th, and in two weeks, the Fedora9 distro will be released. Has anyone succeeded in making the preview version of firefox / fedora 9 work with the adobe flash? I installed the 64 bit version, and could not get it to work, I installed the 32 bit version and here too, I could not get it to work. Somehow the flash file has to go to a new directory or a soft link for the new directory is required. Help, I don't want to install the older firefox version, that I know works so so.

Adobe flash is working here on 64bit Firefox.
Do you have the following packages installed ?

The libflash module was missing from the 32bit installation. Adding it solved the problem.
Yeah!! and with 32bit version, see no requirement for ndispluginwrapper...
