cannot add the rpmfusion-free repository in Fedora 13


I have successfully added the Livna repository to my Fedora 13 using the following command

yum --nogpgcheck install http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm

but I can not add add the rpmfusion repository with an apparently identical command

yum --nogpgcheck install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm

This is the result:

[root@euclide fcc]# yum --nogpgcheck install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Cannot open: http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm. Skipping.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@euclide fcc]#

What is wrong?
I have read a similar thread in this forum, but I have not understood a single line of that discussion.
Can you help? I'll be really grateful
fcc

Welcome to LQ.

No, the direct links to rpmfusion are down today.
The "100" other : http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mm/publiclist/

# rpm -Uvh rpmfusion-free-release-14-0.4.noarch.rpm
http://mirror.transact.net.au/rpmfus...0.4.noarch.rpm

# rpm -Uvh rpmfusion-nonfree-release-14-0.4.noarch.rpm
http://mirror.transact.net.au/rpmfus...0.4.noarch.rpm

Livna
that one is often down and or dead

it has ONLY one 1 and 1 rpm only in it "libdvdcss"

do not worry about that one
for fedora 13 see Mjm's fedora 13 help pages
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f13.html
yum and repos
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...a-f13.html#yum



also BE ADVISED the fedora system admins caught someone trying to break into some of the servers
so some of the mirrors may be down

see:"Fedora Infrastructure Intrusion But No Impact On Product Integrity - Jared Smith"
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=258017

AND DO NOT use the --nogpgcheck tag unless you DO want to take the risk of installing hacked/cracked software
it is not a good or wise idea to use that tag ever -- unless one MUST as a LAST RESORT to install a rpm

Thanks to both of you.
I suspected that the link I used to access rpmfusion was down because I cannot access that server even from the rpmfusion.org pages.
I am aware of the --nogpgcheck problems, but I think that this option is required when installing some "bad" dvd decoders, my only reason for accessing rpmfusion.
Is this correct?
Now I will try with the mirrors. Hopefully the mentioned hacker was restrained, so I can close this thread tomorrow.
