Yum Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras


I am trying to Upgrade from PHP 5.0.4 to a new version at least 5.1.6
I am running Fedora 4 on a VPS
I am also running Pleask 8.6

I got Yum working enough to where it at least recognized the yum command.
I ran the cmd line:
Code:
wget -q -O - http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic.sh | sh
to ge the Atomic Turtle repositories
so now when i run the cmd:
Code:
yum update
This is what it gives me:
Code:
[root@s15252395 yum]# yum update
Setting up Update Process

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
I am not sure where is put the repo config files. I looked in my etc/yum/repos.d dir and there is no files in there.

Thank you for the help.

could be because you are running fedora4
fedora 11 alpha is available now and fedora 10 is in stable

fedora 4 is well past it's shelf life so the fact that you are having trouble finding fedora 4 repos is to be expected since they are no longer maintained and in some cases they probably have been deleted from the server to save space..

no updates have been released for FC4 in ages

Fedora's are supported for 13 months, leaving

Fedora 4 unsupported already two years ago.
