Livna repository on SMART


Hi all...
After a fresh install of FC6, I reinstalled Smart and it found all the channels I need except Livna and FreshRPM.
The other time I succeeded in adding them following something I read on the net, but now after much time I've searched for it... I can't find it.

Can anyone please tell me how do I add the Livna & freshrpm channels to Smart?
Thanks!

I did it using the GUI (you need to have the package smart-gui installed).

On the GUI choose Edit --> Channels --> New --> Provide channel information --> Choose RPM MetaData --> Press OK

For Livna:

Alias: Livna (in fact, just a mnemonic)
Type will be already rpm-md
Name: Livna for Fedora Core 6 (just text)
I left the options Manual updates, Disabled and removable unticked
Priority: 0
Base URL: http_TAKEMEOUT://rpm.livna.org/fedora/6/i386/


For Freshmeat:

Alias: Frshrpms
Name: FreshRPMS for Fedora Cire 6
Priority: 0
Base URL: http_TAKEMEOUT://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/6/i386/freshrpms/

Well, on the base URL you have to take the word '_TAKEMEOUT' out.

Why did I write the URL that way in this forum ? Because when I tried to post this reply the Forum software told me:

'you can not post links to other sites until you have made at least 3 posts'.

Isn't that funny ? Oh boy.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot, Mektub...
I was able to add the channels late last night, using a post on FedoraForums.

But thanks again for the reply!
