yum problems
 
Hi!
I need to install a new hard drive in Fedora.
I want to install hardware browser with the command:
"su -
yum install hwbrowser"
but it shows me this error:
"Loaded plugins: langpacks,presto,refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Error:Cannot retrive repository metadata(repomd.xml) for repository: fedore.
Please verify its path and try again."
I read one solution in a similiar forum but it didn't help me...
Can anyone help me please?
Thanks in advance...

Well, Fedora 14 was moved to the "old archive" some time ago.

Please delete the files /etc/yum.repos.d/*fedora*.repo
(or hide them in a backup folder)
... and use the file 'fedora14.repo instead :
Code:

[fedora14]
name=Fedora14-i386
baseurl=http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

[fc14-updates]
name=Fedora14-updates-i386
baseurl=http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/14/i386/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

# 6 :

No, that's the new repo file, you are supposed to create.
With the new text shown in post # 5.

Or : You can download the attached "fedora14.repo.txt",
and rename it to : fedora14.repo

Shouldn't be disappointed at all...you were using old, unsupported software. Don't be surprised if such things don't work...the current version of Fedora is 18. You could have loaded the new version of Fedora and it would have worked as well.

In addition, assuming the first post was a straight copy/paste, there is a spelling error in the repo name
Code:

Error:Cannot retrive repository metadata(repomd.xml) for repository: fedore.  <--- should end in 'a', not 'e'
