so you've used a set of bash commands as a repo file??? why? how?


Oh... you just put this there, huh? http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/...imilation.repo OK, that's on him... why on earth did he do that?? run the commands he gave, and it presumably will take care of it all... looks like he started writing a repo file and got bored??

Like it says
Code:
 File contains parsing errors: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-assimilation.repo
your repo file has errors; the 'file' invocation should only have 3 '/'s.

EDIT; too slow....

Unhappy Livna database error

Please when I try and update with "yum update" I get the following message:

Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist-debug error was
14: curl#22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found"
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: livna-debuginfo

what can be the error?

one other thing that I still have trouble with is with the new kernel update to 3.8.8 my laptop is unable to connect to any wireless network and I also need help to use my USB modem. I know that there is somewhere a post on this forum for that, If somebody can help me with the USB_modeswitch and how to find vendor and productID of my USB modem I would appreciate it.

Thanx

When people post responses be so good as to address them in your reply. Else we don't know what helped solve the problem and what still needs fixing.
And unless you need to debug something you generally speaking don't need the debug repos.
Finally please keep your thread on topic: your USB modem problems should be in a separate thread in the appropriate forum (plug the thing in then check your 'dmesg' output).

The error can be exactly what it says it is... a 404. I'm sure you've seen plenty of 404 error messages online before now. the file just isn't there. Given that it's a debug repo, you probably just want to delete it anyway.

Thanx acid kewpie

Sorry for the un-organized posts, I just thought of stuff as I go on.

unSpawn, I am sorry for pasting a new thread under the same heading, But I am busy with a few things at once and try to get answers for all of them at once

Thanx
