Is it possible to use the Fedora 8 Livna repo for Fedora 9?


I want to know if it's possible to do this. I tried enabling the Livna repo from Fedora 8, but it automatically tries a Fedora 9 repo that does NOT exist.

So, I was thinking... here's what the Livna repo looks like:
Code:
[livna]
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=
	http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
	http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
	http://wftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/livna/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
	http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
	http://mirror.atrpms.net/livna/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
	ftp://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
failovermethod=priority
#mirrorlist=http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist-7
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

[livna-debuginfo]
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Debug
baseurl=
	http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
	http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
	http://wftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/livna/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
	http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
	http://mirror.atrpms.net/livna/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
	ftp://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
failovermethod=priority
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
gpgcheck=1

[livna-source]
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Source
baseurl=
	http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/SRPMS/
	http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/SRPMS/
	http://wftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/livna/fedora/$releasever/SRPMS/
	http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/SRPMS/
	http://mirror.atrpms.net/livna/fedora/$releasever/SRPMS/
	ftp://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/SRPMS/
failovermethod=priority
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
gpgcheck=1
Whenever you try to install something through Yum and it gets to the Livna repo where ever it sees a '$' it prompts it for a Fedora version, in this case it's 9 and that doesn't work. Would it be possible to manually change these to an 8 and have it work? Basically $=8

Please advise.

Thanks,

Brandon

I wouldn't expect that to end well, some stuff might work, but most probably won't. http://atrpms.net/ has a Fedora 9 repository though, they may have what you are looking for.

I was looking for some of the extra stuff... like mp3 support, Nvidia drivers to enable desktop effects... would ATRpms have that stuff available?

Thanks,

Brandon

Just to be clear, you are aware that F9 is not for general release? It is still in beta.

livna-release-8.rpm

The Livna repos does not come by default, you had to install it yourself. Is it possible you installed the Fedora 9 repos from livna instead the Fedora 8 set?

I have the livna repository for Fedora 8 installed and I do not get any Fedora 9 packages. (http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm)

The repo files are not the only items that play a part in this game. Did you alter any yum settings? there must be a reason why your system thinks it's a Fedora 9.

I'm aware Laz. I like to live on the edge. It's not a big deal if I have to reinstall. I have a separate partition that all of my important stuff goes on.

Thanks for the help elliot. Looks like I'll enable the atrpms repo.

You can use the Livna F8 repo for the Fedora 9 preview/rawhide just edit the livna.repo file from "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" then edit the livna-devel.repo from "enabled=0" to " enabled=1"
