Yum Errors in parsing, whats wrong here (yum.conf pasted)


ok there are 100+ views and no posts of this thread anyone got any input for me

i just added livna's repositories to my yum and now i am getting the following error
[root@localhost jokker]# yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 30, in ?
yummain.main(sys.argv[1:])
File "/usr/share/yum/yummain.py", line 163, in main
(log, errorlog, filelog, conf, cmds) = parseCmdArgs(args)
File "/usr/share/yum/yummain.py", line 75, in parseCmdArgs
conf=yumconf(configfile=yumconffile)
File "/usr/share/yum/config.py", line 48, in __init__
self.cfg.read(configfile)
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/ConfigParser.py", line 263, in read
self._read(fp, filename)
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/ConfigParser.py", line 456, in _read
raise MissingSectionHeaderError(fpname, lineno, `line`)
ConfigParser.MissingSectionHeaderError: File contains no section headers.
file: /etc/yum.conf, line: 1
' [main]\n'

now im not a wiz at linux or anything but i know its something i just did to yum, and no i wasnt smart enough to make a backup. but here is my yum file, and if anyone could just skim over it and see what in there is causing all the fuss id be more than grateful.

---------------
oh and no yum will not work if i just remove those 3 livna repositories at the bottom, that would be too easy, tried it anyway, but good idea. the error is the same as the above posted error either way.

Thanks for looking people.
