Inspect the fedora-core.repo under /etc/yum.repos.d. If the line "mirrorlist=..." is preceded by a # mark, remove that hash and try again. It should work because the mirrorlist is actually ALL of the available mirrors.

Also make sure that enabled is set to 1.

You can also remove the hash in front of baseurl.

And install the yum-fastestmirror plugin; it will automatically search the fastest server for you. That can really speed things up at times.

No, I'm afraid it's not fine at all. Where is the baseurl for your [core] section? That baseurl specifies both version and arch; if this information is missing, there is no way that yum could fetch any packages.

baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/

One more thing, I'm not sure whether there are any repositories available yet for Fedora 7. If not, you'll have to use the Fedora Core 6 repositories instead - in which case you have to replace "$releasever" in your repo files with "6".

Hmm, are you aware that the baseurl looks a little different for each repo file? Like for the core repo, it ends in "OS", but the updates repo probably has something rather like "updates". So if you used the same baseurl for all of your repos, you won't by able to access anything else than the core repo = no updates and no extras.

Question yes

that is why it took me so long to reply back. to find them all. what do you think would casue them not to add the baseURL. I tried adding the baseURL. do you think would cause that. I uninstaled livna.org and reinsalled it and it did the same think with no baseurl. what do you think would cause that.

Well,as Fedora 7 is still in its release candidate stages (although I expect to see the official release within the next two weeks), I guess there may still be some uncertainty about the exact baseurls. It may be more interesting to drop the baseurl altogether rather than include one that may be outdated in two weeks because of the rapid succession of betas and release candidates.

I think Fedora 7 is final. If that's the case, what files need to be updated with which baseurls?
