Problem installing packages with yum (Fedora 14)

Hi all,
I am new user of fedora - 14. When I am installing x11 packages with the following command I get error like this:

[root@localhost ns]# yum install libX11-devel libXext-devel libXau-devel libXmu-devel

Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

Adding en_US to language list [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 6 - ""

Trying other mirror.

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: adobe-linux-i386. Please verify its path and try again

Can anyone help me what to do in this case.
Thanks in advance.

adobe is a general pain up the **se.Ahem. You might be missing some yum repositaries, you could do a search for "yum repositaries" and see what they offer. Alternatively try to install each element and see which one fails and take it from there.

I don't think 14 is update-able past the time 16 was released. Whatever version of Fedora you have updates are not supported after it is superseded by two releases. So when 17 comes out 15 will no longer be able to be updated. In this case you can try to install it with Separate RPM files from RPMfind or Pbone. There is also JW player that is Open Source.

Fedora 14 is obsolete.

fedora 14 is unsupported and Past it's End Of Life
there is and there will never be any more support of it

if you are going to use fedora then please STAY current

Install the current fedora 16 then next month fedora 17 install the then current fedora 17
then 6 months install fedora 18

also fedora is not using adobe acrobat reader the default is "evince" and is already installed

as to flash

see mjmwired's quick help page
