The last thing I did was yum update this piece of crap and I get problems.. suggested on linux forum, you removed the # on the baseurl to fix "..cannot find a valid baseurl for rep.." type errors
Did that.. now I get a different one... This is on a fedora 7 system..

[root@localhost user01]# yum check-update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist-7 error was
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Tue, 24 Jul 2007 18:51:48 GMT

[root@localhost user01]#

Also, after the yum update, I also can't connect to the public time server. Internet is fine obviously.

Anyone know anything?

Not a single person in the world knows how to solve problems... not here, not anywhere...... glad I didn't paid for anything.

you get what you paid for, eh...

1) The link http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist-7 is erroneous and invalid. Period. Remove and/or replace it with a valid URL.
2) After you read
man yumyou may want to try:
yum clean allbefore re-trying to update. Also, it is always possible that the repo servers are too busy or temporarily down - wait a few hours, or until tomorrow, then try again.

All of the above commands/edits must be done as root user.

3) You are correct: nobody here gets paid to help you, nor indeed owes you anything. And "Please" and "Thank You" will usually get more responses than "I take my toys and go play somewhere else".

Well you paid nothing for the OS and nothing for any info given here so why the attitude ?

With attitude like your's I am surprised no one has told you to sod off and buy Vista :p

Geez you post this kind of crapola after waiting only 2.5 hours for a response to your initial post? Geez do you really think that the rest of us were just sitting around waiting for you to post?

All you'll get from me is a big fat RTFM !!!!!!

Gen-teel-men let us remember that this poor soul is probably a refugee from MicrosoftLand and is used to having a
system that works (for a while until registry tanks or a virus kills registry or a spyware slows it down.) After he learns
to be more polite and reads a little (lot) maybe he'll be OK. Hlingler's response will probable fix it.
