    You have installed a lot of useless repos and Yum is not working properly because of that.
    Post the output of this
    Code:
    ls /etc/yum.repos.d
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Log in as root and move these repo files to someother place
    adobe-linux.repo dries.repo fedora-legacy.repo livna-testing.repo macromedia.repo newrpms.repo livna-devel.repo skype.repo
    After moving those repos, execute this
    Code:
    yum clean all
    Try to install any package.

    ftp://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/rpm.livn...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
    Trying other mirror.
    Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: livna

    Remove Livna.repo /etc/yum.repos.d folder and re-install it.
    Execute this
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm
    yum clean all

    Did you remove Livna.repo file from /etc/yum.repos.d folder?
    Execute this:

    Code:
    rpm -i http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm
    yum clean all
    In case it doesn't work, Execute this
    Code:
    less /etc/fedora-release
    Post output here.

    this is the o/p:

    [root@kakarla ~]# more /etc/fedora-release
    Fedora Core release 6 (Zod)
    [root@kakarla ~]#

    what is the meaning we can understand from this o/p? plz tell me.
    .................................................. .................................................. ................................
    i m sorry for troubling u. many thanks for your Patience.

    rpm -i http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm
    yum clean all

    with these two i m getting result. only thing i modified is : i set the proxy settings in ( /etc/profile) and ( .bash_profile) files.


    then it is working nicely. thank you very much.


    but i have some doubts:
    1. for yum configuration, in which file i need to put proxy settings really?, i mean in (.bashrc) or in (.bash_profile) or in ( /etc/profile).

    2. i installed wine successfully through yum, then how to use it? where can i found it?

    3. in windows if any thing we installed, that we can find (shortcut icons) in program files folder. in linux where we can find these?

    finally once again thanks for your help
