Question fc7 not receiving updates

my FC7 install has stopped receivning updates since i tried (unsucesfully) to install some adobe plugins for firefox.
I get this message if i try a manual update;
http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Mon, 29 Oct 2007 17:24:40 GMT
Server: Apache
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: adobe-linux. Please verify its path and try again
[root@localhost rob]#

I feel certain that something i've done during my attempt to sort out the firefox pluggins has messed things up. Any idea how to fix this??

Sounds like you need to remove the adobe repo from your yum repo list. Search for one of the many recent threads for instructions to accomplish this. I would look for something in a post written by either Seve or Leigh123.

You need to edit the adobe repo

gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/*adobe*repo

and change the $basearch to i386 as there is no repo for x86_64 only i386

name=Adobe Systems Incorporated
