Hmmmm, do you have this file:

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

Can you post the whole file here? You should be able to open it with any text editor. Just copy and paste the contents.

I know the problem for that one This site has cut off the address. I will post without the url tags. Try this command instead:

rpm -Uvh http://livna-dl.reloumirrors.net/fedora/9/i386/livna-release-9-1.noarch.rpm

I am not sure how yum works, but apt-get, once you add a repository to the apt config file, you need to update it with apt-get update. My guess is that once you've edited that file, you need to run yum update. If that works, then:

yum install vlc

Dang, sorry. Added the wrong repository. I added the ones for the source. Now I've fixed it. Check the above reply for the line in bold.

Hmmm, I ran out of suggestions now mate . The second address you've added to the repolist (the one I gave you) should not timeout. It must have something to do with your network (are you behind a proxy?). In that case, I will have to pass, because I suck at it and I don't want to screw your machine

you could try the freshrpm repo:
http://www.recordingproject.com/bbs/...hrishansen.jpg

Just a short reminder that Fedora is not a distribution with stability or user friendlyness as a top priority. I like Fedora, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with no experience with linux. They also don't care one bit about compatibility with anything non open-source (java, flash, drivers, codecs...).
