yum grouplist doesn't work


I've got Fedora9 (standard repos + livna). When it comes to single packages, yum works fine, however when I try to yum grouplist:

Code:
[root@fedlappy downloads]# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Group Process
updates                                                                                                                              | 2.3 kB     00:00

Take a look at your yum repo list (in /etc/yum, /etc/yum.repos.d, or something similar). If the URLs list the comps.xml.gz, delete the comps.xml.gz part.

Example: change this
to this
Yum knows where to find the information it needs. All you need to do is tell yum where the repodata file is.

I tried entering a couple URLs you listed in a browser, and got errors also. I reentered the URLs without the last filename in the URL (comps.xml.gz) and the URLs worked just fine.

thanks for your reply.
I don't seem to have anything containing comps.xml.gz
These are my yum-related files:

/etc/yum/pluginconf.d/refresh-packagekit.conf
[root@fedlappy pluginconf.d]# cat refresh-packagekit.conf

/etc/yum.conf

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

I tried uncommenting the #baseurl lines but it did not change anything.
