    Yum "Errno 256" problem

    I tried running yum recently and I got this:
    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# yum
    Repository updates-testing is listed more than once in the configuration
    Repository extras is listed more than once in the configuration
    You need to give some command

    Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: gstreamer
    failure: repodata/repomd.xml from gstreamer: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
    Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from gstreamer: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
    I have no idea what I messed up, but it will not let me install, update, or list any packages. Any idea of how to fix this? >,<

    Why a gstreamer repository? It's a Core package. Why so many repositories, period?

    okay for the yum.conf i have
    Code:
    # Note: This file is no longer the entire yum configuration
    # for fedorafaq.org. See http://www.fedorafaq.org/#yumconf
    # for details on how to set up your system with the new
    # yum configuration.
    
    [main]
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    pkgpolicy=newest
    distroverpkg=redhat-release
    tolerant=1
    exactarch=1
    obsoletes=1
    # We don't want to gpg-check local, unsigned packages
    #gpgcheck=1
    # Changed this because some mirrors go down and then
    # re-trying takes forever.
    retries=1
    timeout=10
    
    # PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
    # in /etc/yum.repos.d
    This was after I did the
    Code:
    yum clean all
    Then I ran yum list amarok and got this:
    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# yum list amarok

    there is no error that means the package is already installed.

    i think your yum is running fine now. i suggest that you should disable your other repos as a default setting.
    too many repos enabled may cause undesired results.
    for example if you want to use livna-stable repo, you just issue the command 'yum --enablerepo=livna-stable install wxyz',
    where wxyz is your desired program to install.
