The 404 error means "page not found". If you tried putting that URL into your web browser, you'd see the site doesn't host that page any longer. So, either they removed it permanently or it's temporarily down. Either way, that's nothing you can fix....so remove the repository, or wait and see if it comes backup.

Also, on their page, it has notes about what to do if it's down:

Thanks TB0ne

so remove the repository

From the Fedora website/documentation, and a brief Google search:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...ositories.html

..and you can also use the GUI:

livna is basically no more
the one and only package it was hosting "libdvdcss"
is now in "ATrpms Repository"

see the mjmwired guide for the current version of fedora

Thanks to both of you.

I believe it's somewhat solved. T,I went initially on what you said about removing the repo. I used this site to help me.

http://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...po-repository/

It was the same repo used in the example--what luck.
Anyway, I had to manually delete the repo file.
Afterwards, I ran yum update and it worked. It was quite a list. (I run a dual boot and really enjoy Fedora but it can be so precise and technical and you can mess a lot up in a keystroke--I believe after my last update to the kernel that it completely removed my printer--dang) That was a pretty in depth process with lcups, etc

Yeah, John, you're probably right about the libdvd. Im thinking that's where I got it initially and that link you added is very helpful.
So, again many thanks.
