yum update asking for mirror-- how to set in Fedora 9?


yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
http://dl.atrpms.net/fc9.90-x86_64/a...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: atrpms. Please verify its path and try again

How do I set a mirror for rpm downloads in Fedora 9?

1st be extremely careful using Atrpms repo. They have a long history of replacing core components of Fedora with ones that are NOT compatible with any other repo, including Fedora proper.

2nd. You are trying to us the repo for F10. On Fedora the X.9 is the beta(or earlier) of X+1.


Here are the instructions for Atrpms setup:

Ok, forget Atrpms then, thanks. One other repository is having issues, livna.

[code]Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: livna. Please verify its path and try again/[code]

How do I verify its path exactly?

Post your livna.repo file from /etc/yum.repos.d/.

Also post your /etc/redhat-release

There's an etc/redhat-lsb with but no /etc/redhat-release

Also, when I go to add software, it tries to refresh the software list and then tells me there's a problem connecting to a software source (details speak of livna) and fails to load ANY software choices, for any of the categories (!) It does the same for the freshrpms and updates-debuginfo packages sequentially if I uncheck livna and then freshrpms in the software package sources window, again never showing any installable packages.

Ok, I suspect that you have a half breed system. You definitely have the F10 Livna repo set to active. The question is, how much of the F9 stuff has been replaced by the F10 stuff? I would definitely consider doing a fresh install.

The F9 setup for Livna is here:

There being no /etc/redhat-release would make me suspect that you have replaced a significant amount of F9 with F10 stuff.

I uncheck all but a couple of the most basic package sources and finally get some items in the right window to appear, but when I try to install them, it says

Code:
Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: updates. Please verify its path and try again
