Lightbulb how to add livna repo????????????


Hi all !!!

I have been trying to add livna repository to solve dependency problem but could not succeed...

this is what i did :

# gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo

then pasted this:

[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl= http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.stable
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

[livna-unstable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.unstable
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

[livna-testing]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.testing
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

after that i gave the following command :
# rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY
error: http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY: import read failed(-1).

why this is happening????

moreover why this command also is failing to do the job ????

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm
Retrieving http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm
error: skipping http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error

thanks.

Hi all !!!

Now i think livna repository is not meant for rhel7 or lower versions of rhel........

so could anyone suggest me the best repo for my distro (rhel 5) ???

and as i wasted a lot of time in searching gpg key of rpm.pbone.net at present i am down in the dumps and waiting for your reply........
