    You must be connected to the internet for this to work, were you connected at the time?

    If you are connected, then try this. It usually does it for me:

    Code:
    rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
    rpm –rebuilddb
    yum clean all

    Have you already enabled the Fedora repos?
    Post the output of
    Code:
    ls /etc/yum.repos.d

    you could always try running yum with the --skip-broken option and see what happens.

    cannot retrieve repository metadata problem - FedoraForum.org

    That original link you posted for the repo returned a 404, so its broken. You may have to tweak your repos to get it to work.

    Dear scathefire,

    Thats True but you tried the below link

    http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/12/Everything/x86_64/os/repodata/repomd.xml:

    But I never mentioned the above line anywhere the line in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo is like this

    [fedora]
    name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
    failovermethod=priority
    baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/12/Everything/x86_64/os/
    #mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-12&arch=x86_64
    enabled=1
    metadata_expire=7d
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

    [fedora-debuginfo]
    name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Debug
    failovermethod=priority
    baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/12/Everything/i386/os/
    #mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-12&arch=i386
    enabled=0
    metadata_expire=7d
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

    [fedora-source]
    name=Fedora $releasever - Source
    failovermethod=priority
    baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/12/Everything/i386/os/
    #mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-12&arch=i386
    enabled=0
    metadata_expire=7d
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch



    So please find my error and help me out
    awaiting for response.

    so if you comment out the baseurl and roll with the mirrorlist what happens?
