Yum & Fedora Core 3!
 
I am running Fedora Core 3 and its the same old problem with Yum again. I am unable to install/update/upgrade to anything. for example, when I type, yum install apt, the following is what I get.


Error: Cannot find baseurl or name for server 'freshrpms'. Skipping
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: ATrpms - Stable

Error getting file http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/3/en/x8...rs/header.info
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

I am guessing the problem is with the conf (from all the other posts). But still, I don't want to mess it up, being a newbie. I tried replacing the conf from the fedorafaq.org for FC3 but I have the same problem.

I would greatly appreciate any help!

Support for FC3 was dropped several years ago(06?). There have been no updates since that time and there will be no further updates. Current supported versions of Fedora are F9 and F10. One month after F11 is released(end of this month?) support for F9 will be dropped.

Hi Lazlow! Thanks for your kind reply. I am doomed! :P
