What's wrong with my yum.conf?


Greetings everyone,

'apt' works like a charm but I've never succeeded a 'yum check-update' ... it may have something to do with my yum.conf

Here it is...

What do you think? Something wrong here?

Whoa, wait sec....

I think I got it (yum check-update went flawlessly)...

Here's how my yum.conf looks like now:

[livna-testing]

I hope this helps others out there.... now on to searching for packages in yum ;-)

Yeah, you have to get those urls exaclty right, or else...
I found the file:// urls should start with file:/// (the extra one is for the root filesytem).
