Hi and welcome to the forum.

Fedora 7 is no longer supported, so most of the repositories no longer work. If its an option, install Fedora 10.

Do you have the livna repository installed without problems? If so, then check the URL in the repo file - Livna got merged with another package provider recently, and it is possible that the old URL doesn't work anymore.
