Help on fedora


every time i try to download anything via yum or package installer i get the following errors

Yum
Code:
http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/8/en/i386/at-stable/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: atrpms. Please verify its path and try again
Package Installer

help?


Also I cannot watch dvds on it (movies) I get the error (using totem)

I dont think i can fix this until i fix the first problem, I am using the preview of fedora 9, so when i install the final virsion it will just up my following system, so i know that the problem isn't because im using the preview of fedora 9 (alsohad the same problem with the stable version of fedora 8)

How are you connected to the internet? You can get this problem trying to g othrough a proxy, but I'd imagine misconfigured firewalls or routers forwarding would cause similar effect.

For dvds, try installing libdvdcss2 (or maybe libdvdcss), but you'd better sort yum first

Pretty sure you have your repo mis configured. The address you have listed above does not exist. Any address you use in a repo you should be able to move into your browser and look at.

Code:
rpm --import http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms

yum: Make sure the following lines are included in /etc/yum.conf:
Code:
[atrpms]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms
baseurl=http://dl.atrpms.net/f$releasever-$basearch/atrpms/stable
gpgkey=http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
gpgcheck=1

Ok - type the first line verbatum (you'll need to be root)

cd /etc/yum.repos.d

you should then create a file called atrmps.repo (I prefer this approach to putting repos in /etc/yum.conf but you can do either)

Add the second code box to this file.

Off the top of my head, my keystrokes would be:

select rpm --import http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms with mouse and control insert to copy it.

open a terminal session as root.

shift insert to paste the line previosly copied and hit return - wait for it to import

then (keystrokes unless in ()):
(copy the second code box starting at [ and ending with 1 using your mouse and control insert)
vi /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo
i<shift insert> (ie - type i then hit shift and insert to paste the code previously copied - i puts vi into insert mode)
<escape>:wq
You're done

note that hitting escape pts vi back into command mode, :wq writes changes and quits.

Let us know how you go

Nothing - yum will do that when it runs
