I guess you have some problems in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ folder...

Maybe I can send you an email with all known repo's so that you 100% on the same level as me...

Send your email address to nice10150n@netscape.com

I recommend take krussell advice and mine. Install mplayer through source. It is easier to compile programs than going through the RPM mess even if there are useless programs like yum, urpmi, apt-get. I strongly recommend Gentoo. Compiling and installing in Gentoo is all done by simple programs.

For any newbie or even experts, I recommend backing up config files, so it is easier to revert back to the original which Dummy-in-Linux have forgot and as well as others. Always backup config files before editing them.

Sorry Electro,

But the problem which Ricka343 have has not much to do with my config settings, also adding lines not need to a backup, as it is easy to remove lines as simple as it gets.

Your posting tells more about your know-how of the Redhat (RPM) installation and the untils, which is none.

You seriously say to a first time user to compile a program from source without knowing if he or she has even installed the packages for that, which Fedora not installs by default.

The problem Ricka343 has is that there is a problem with the Livna repo see /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo in the error listing.
