Any good yum.conf for FC3 x86_64 ?


Just finished to install FC3 x86_64 on my new rig Elitegroup Kn1 ( Nforce4 ) motherboard + Asus 6600 Video. I didn't encounter any big problem during that installation.
Could someone please be kind enough to post a link to a good yum.conf file for the 64 bits version of FC3 ?
I usually copy the one from the Fedorafaq website, but it is for the 32 bits version.

The one from the fedorafaq website will work fine with an x86_64 machine. That conf is the one I'm using.

Thanks for the info nhusted.
I'm surprised that a FC3 32 bits yum config version works on the FC3 x86_4 version .
Could you please explain why it works ? Aren't the 64 bits repositories differents of the ones for the 32 bits version ?

From what I've noticed, livna, as well as the others, are both a 32bit and 64bit repository. Yum itself recognizes what architecture you are running thus it will download the neccessary programs for that architecture. It will also download any legacy i386 libraries needed for compatability. I'm sure if you type something along the lines of 'yum install firefox\*.i386' you'll be able to jump back and cross the boundries back to 32bit if you need to.

Thanks a lot for the explaination nhusted.
I'll do as you suggested and use the yum config that's on fedorafaq website.
If that solution works for you, it should work for me too
