Are the repositories down for Fedora 16
 
Yum can't access the repositories for Fedora 16 on my old Pentium 3 machine. I can't remember how many versions back the repositories are usable. Will someone be so kind as to remind this old guy? While I'm at it can Fedora 16 work on this old machine or will it slow it down too much? It's a Pentium 3 CPU with 379232k of memory. Thanks ahead of time.

See here: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/piper...ry/003138.html

I recommend to recycle your old Pentium 3 and upgrade your hardware.

fedora releases are only supported by redhat for about a year.

i currently have fedora-15 running on an acer revo (1 gb ram / 1.5 ghz single core cpu) with the blue-bubble fork of the gnome-2 desktop (with compiz 3d effects enabled) and it is a little slow but usable.

if you enable rpmfusion repos this version will be supported for ever.

Thank you. Is it only version 15 that is supported forever? I have two of the rpmfusion enabled, I will enable the other two rpmfusion "update" repos and see what happens.

what are you trying to update ?... i was able to yum install ddrescue yesterday.

maybe i am mistaken and rpmfusion cuts support for old versions too.

fyi (from http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration ):

Command Line Setup using rpm

To enable access to both the free and the nonfree repository use the following command:

Fedora 14 to the most current:

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'

You might need to point yum to the archived repositories to use the older versions since F16 reached EOL very recently.

Hmm. I just browsed the rpmfusion site and apparently the only two repos available there are "free" and "nonfree", both of which I already have installed. Just wondering why "iscan" installs without downloading any dependencies but then the machine is i386 like iscan so maybe all the dependencies are already installed. Thanks.

Okay I edited /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo to make this the baseurl:
https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/arc...ything/i386/os and I'll try that. Thanks!

Not a good idea : That's a Fedora 14 URL (And not even a Fedora 14 baseurl.)

The Fedora 16 baseurl's are :
i386 http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...edora/i386/os/
x86_64 http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...ora/x86_64/os/

Updates i386 http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...dates/16/i386/
Updates x86_64 http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...tes/16/x86_64/

Thank you, I'll do that. But now I'm having a problem sharing internet with the PC. I'll get that worked out then try again. Thanks again.
