Open a terminal
click edit button on top---select all--edit button again--copy
come here and do a right click and paste.
if you don't have gedit installed use emacs or xemacs or nedit

try typing in this first
and then try the edit of the file.

i tried that and got"bash: gedit/etc/yum.repo.d/livna.repo: no such file or directory"
17th January 2006, 03:38 AM
try emacs or xemacs
you did have a space between gedit and the /yum/etc. didn't you?
try typing in first
and see if it can even find them

The name of the file you must edit is "/etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo". Linux doesn't forgive spelling errors!

try this in a terminal---just COPY and PASTE this into a terminal (if trying to use FC4 anyway)
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release4.rpm
if you need to use "su -" first so it will allow you to install software--please do so. and enter the root password if asked to do so too..
then type in
yum update yum
then do the yum update or whatever command for yum you failed at the first time.

WOW !!! -You a Bad Man- I don't care what others may say about you-You are okay with me--it worked !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good to hear.
at least the "worked part"--hi--hi
I think editing the yum configuration for new users is sometimes the hardest part to figure out--normal assumption is if a few repo's work good--adding more should be better. And that usually just leads to grief.
Mixing repo's is very confuzing to the system sometimes...A lone install of some Application from "other" repo's won't usually break the deal, but sometimes can.
I usually just stick to the base-extra's--updates--and the livna repo's for normal updates--installs. (good advise for the new-user--stick to what works until ya get your feet wet with Linux for a bit). Unless the required software is only offered or available as a tar.gz, etc. Then I will usually try a "rpmbuild" to get it as a fall-in install for my system. Although I have to do some occasional source installs cuz of the blasted Spec files--I'm going to have to learn how to make/edit those one of these days.
Well--off to find the little "Admin helper" who managed to get through 3 firewalls and land a silly port 80 https request on my firewall--but guess I should really look and see if that is even possible for some strange reason now...shouldn't even being occurring..ohhhh welll--something new every day it seems.
