Exclamation Configuring yum with troubles .help!


In the beginning of configuration of yum working i installed the livna.
such as the following copied from yum.conf on my platform:



# This is the fedorafaq.org yum.conf for Fedora Core 5.
#
# Note that you also need the rest of the configuration
# as described at http://www.fedorafaq.org/#yumconf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
# Don't check keys for localinstall
gpgcheck=0
plugins=1
metadata_expire=1800
# Changed this because some mirrors go down and then
# re-trying takes forever.
timeout=7


# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d





in /etc/yum.repos.d directory, has my linva repos.

well,then typing this command line: "yum install mplayer",so any message like "[Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out> " present mean that is to change another mirror to try .actually, the messages attached url is connectable.i don't known what's wrong configuration with yum?

the command lines and messages receiving:


yum install mplayer

I'm confused are you using Fedora Core 5 or 6? In either case neither is likely to be supported any more, hence the time outs.

The most likely problem is that the repos simply don't exist any more.

Fair point!

Why don't you try upping the value of "timeout" in yum.conf Default is 30 seconds. Perhaps try timeout=60 instead

Do you access the internet through a proxy or directly?

You need to use the replacement repos rpmfusion http://rpmfusion.org/, assuming you can get stuff that old. The current Fedora versions are 10 & 11 I believe
