Trying to install 32-bit packages in Fedora 13


But ever YUM attempt returns "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again"

What am I missing here? does this mean the packages don't exist, or do I need to modify something to make them accessible? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

It seems client can't able to connect server.

Are you using local yum server repo. or default repo.?

Specifically, post the contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo. FYI, a valid (default) fedora.repo file should start out something like this:
Code:
[fedora]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/os/
mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
metadata_expire=7d
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

I know what is default repo settings. let's check OP's repo file.

BTW in your configuration repo is disable

You're right (for the op, the 6th line should read enabled=1 to enable the repo) I took it from my F14 install, so I'm using the updates-testing repo. Good thing I said it should look "something like" that, and not "exactly like" that.

My apologies for any confusion I might have caused.
