I running pirut from Applications menu. After type password, I get error:

I had checked path of repomd.xml file. It's, it still live

ps: before running yum, I had run:
yum clean all
yum clean metadata
rm -fr /var/cache/yum/*

uninstall livna from your system and reinstall the latest one from their website.
To find out the livna package name on your system type:
rpm -q --all | grep livna

type "yum erase packagenamehere"

I have Fedora 7 so I would type "yum erase livna-release-7-2"

Then install the correct version from livna's website. Or if you have Fedora 7 then you could just type:
rpm -Uhv

then try to run pirut and it should work. Let me know
