Try http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/ye.../updates/RPMS/
or http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/ye...m/5.0/updates/

The package name cannot be included in these lines.

Hello kkrockstar.

Have you tried adding additional repositories to your YUM configuration?

knudfl 06-22-2008 04:51 AM

VLC media player for Fedora
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-fedora.html

If you want to do changes to your repo :
Google keyword : change repo yum
And please use "LQ Search" for info.

Config files are e.g /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
(a new link can be added there)

If you want to install a downloaded package, not found in
your repo, the command is # 'rpm -Uvh <package-name.rpm>'
but yum should be preferred.

From Wikipedia :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_404
Quote:

The 404 or Not Found error message is an HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server but either the server could not find what was requested, or it was configured not to fulfill the request and did not reveal the reason why. 404 errors should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all.

Thanks everyone for their nice support.I added some extra repositories to my yum.repos.d folder and it worked for me
,but in the end, can someone post a list of all featured yum repositories or where can be they found at one place ?
Thanks once again for being this much helpful to newbies like me.

I've never seen a list like this, and I rather doubt one exists. Not all of the repo guys get along, and worse still, there are incompatibilities between certain repos (used to be livna vs dag/atrmps etc - is that still the case?)

Experience helps, but that isn't really an answer that helps you

404 doesn't mean computer can't be got to. it means file doesn't exist.

can't you just search on the web for a file you can down load and install from?
