issues with yum in ps3


I recently installed ydl 5.0 on my ps3 and tried using yum to install a couple programs. ive used yum before but i do now know any details on it. i tried using yum update and received this error:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
base [1/3]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base


im not sure where i should go from here. i also dont know how to check what url is set to repo base. how can i do this? Also i tried using the graphical version supplied with ydl (Add/Remove Software) and it says that there might be a connection error but im sending you this message while using ydl on my ps3. any help?

well i solved my issue. in /etc/yum.repos.d i found the correct links. i also added two repositories for livna and fedora extras. here they are:

[base]
name=Yellow Dog Linux 5.0 Base
baseurl=http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/yellowdog/yum/5.0/base/
mirrorlist=http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/resources/yd50-base-mlist
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[extras]
name=Yellow Dog Linux 5.0 Extras
baseurl=http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/yellowdog/yum/5.0/extras/
mirrorlist=http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/resources/yd50-extras-mlist
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[updates]
name=Yellow Dog Linux 5.0 Updates
baseurl=http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/yellowdog/yum/5.0/updates/
mirrorlist=http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/resources/yd50-updates-mlist
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[fedora-extras]
name=Fedora Extras
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/5/ppc
gpgcheck=0

[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/ppc
gpgcheck=0


it works for me and i hope this helps someone else with the same problem

well /etc/yum.repos.d is a path to a bunch of files which contain the information on each of your repositories. even though livna is designed for fedora, yellow dog is based off of fedora so they work.

if your looking to edit your repositories try using gedit or your favorite editor to edit the files:

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

this will edit your extras repository. each repository has their own file. so livna will have livna.repo etc.
