No, I am not using Fedora 9. I am using Fusion 14, and it doesn't matter which version it is.
The problem should not even exist, then or now.

In fact, it never used to exist and I remember updating Fedora and having no problems at all.
That changed around Fedora 8 or 9, if I remember correctly.

Regardless, when I last installed Fedora 13, the problem existed then, too.
It then took about one whole day to update.

This problem seems to only exist with distros that use yum.

This is a brand new install in a default condition, so if levina has a problem, then the updater should be configured out of the box not to use it. It is not something a user should have to deal with a new install.

However, I don't know if this repository you mention is the problem or not (I doubt it is involved, though), as I have little way of knowing how to find out what is causing slow updates. It is certainly not something that a new user should have to worry about.
