The livna.org site is down for over a week now. I have no information what causes this or when it will be available again. Hopefully it's not another victim of the economic crisis.

From what little I have read on it, it appears that both their primary and secondary DNS servers crapped out for some reason at the same time. I haven't been able to get more information than that, but that is where things stood last time I looked.

As for trying to download the lamp stack, if you disable the livna repo and just use the fedora base repo, you should be able to get apache/mysql/php without any problems.

There are a couple ways to do this depending on what you want the end result to be.

If you want to remove it completely, you can go to /etc/yum.repos.d and delete the livna .repo files. Keep in mind that this will make livna unusable until you either reinstall their RPM or add the repos back manually.

If you just want to disable it this one time, you can "yum --disablerepo=livna* install httpd" without the quotes.

Another way to disable it is to open the .repo file for livna and look for the line that says "enabled=1" and change the 1 to a 0. Save the file, and then just do "yum install httpd" and it should just pass over the livna repo. To enable the repo again when livna is back on their feet, just change that 0 back to a 1.

There was a change a couple years back in the way yum handles the repos, but I am not sure what point Fedora implemented it. If you don't have a /etc/yum.repos.d directory, you are probably using the older version of yum and will need to edit yum.conf and look for the enabled line in there for the livna repo.

Hope this makes sense.

Livna repo and few others are merged into RPM Fusion repo,so it's adviced to use it and remove all the others.You can edit /etc/yum.repos.d or /etc/yum.conf file and place a # sign in front of the repos that you don't want to use,but you should check if packages for Fedora 6 are still available in the RPM Fusion repo.There is a Fedora 10 available for download,you might wanna upgrade.Fedora 6 repositories I believe are not valid anymore.

Support for FC6 was dropped several years ago. Support for any one Fedora version is now 13 months. Currently F9 and F10 are the only supported versions. One month after F11 is released support for F9 will be dropped.

You may want to look at Centos. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download and update (unlike RHEL). RHEL/Centos 5.X was based on FC6 so it would "feel" very familiar to you. Centos has a 5+ year support life for any version (5.X).

when lvnia merged into rpmfusion ONLY fedora 8,9,10 ,11 -testing are there
fedora 6 hit End of Life A LONG time ago . and is unsupported .
IF by chance you do find a apache.rpm for fedora 6 it HAS HAD NO SECURITY UPDATES for a very long time

if you must use a unsupported version of fedora then build apache from the source .
but remember Fedora 6 also HAS HAD NO SECURITY UPDATES for a very long time
