Unhappy restoring yum repo in fedora 7


I mistakenly deleted the repo directory in the yum folder. Now my yum command does not work.
i tried to rpmfusion but i couldnt find the rpm for fedora 7. How can i restore my repos. I didnt do any modifications. Only rpmfusion repo would do.

Thanks in advance

Isn't that 1 unsupported?
I think fedora is up to 14.

for the VERY DEAD and LONG UNSUPPORTED fedora 7
there is no need
there have been NO updates to it in 5 years
the repos were moved to the historical archives a long time ago

there IS NOTHING to install on fedora 7 !!!

Install the current Fedora 14 - then in 4 months fedora 15

The old archive http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../fedora/linux/
Quote "Note: The Fedora releases here are no longer supported or maintained,
so they do not receive bug fixes or security updates. We do not recommend using
these releases any more."

/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo

[fedora]
name=Fedora
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/7/Everything/i386/os/

[updates]
name=Fedora-update
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/7/i386/

The above is for i386.
