i keep getting this message " cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: livna" i also tried this suggestion but i could not find (/etc/yum.repos.d directory) i only see(/etc/yumex.profiles.config)wich iam unable to display and(/etc/yum.conf) also unable to displayTip: Some users have reported better success with yum updates if they edit the repository files in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory and remove the comment mark ("#") from the beginning of the "baseurl=" lines, especially if they are getting "Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo:" errors.) also when i try to use "add and remove software" i get this "unable to retrive softaware information"
any suggestions are welcomed

You want a easy way? SU- to root and type yum install yumex

This will install a graphical version of yum. It pretty intuitive, a menu item yumex under system tools (fc5)

Edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo. The line that says 'enabled=1' needs to read 'enabled=0'. Now yum will not use the livna repo.

I agree with iron mike's yumex suggestion, you can set the settings to not refresh automatically and then you can disable any repos that are not working at the moment, which seems to be one or the other ever moment of every day and then refresh. If you need something that is only on livna, then you just have to wait I guess.
