Bruce,

Dude, don't use "Reply" to start a new thread.
Now your unrelated question is threaded to mine via headers like these:

References: <440DE90F 6040606 brunson com>
In-Reply-To: <440DE90F 6040606 brunson com>

And I'm less likely to get a useful response now.

I recently installed fedora core 3 and have had some difficulties with using yum. Finding many different suggestions on the internet as to which repositories to use is confusing.

When I do a sudo yum update, I get a lot of missing dependencies (below). And yum itself won't install them. Many of these same dependencies prevent me from installing certain programs.

Where do I find the correct repositories for Fedora core 3?

Yes, send new threads directly to fedora-list redhat com . And as for the question, there's different opinions on the matter, but generally you will want to use the base (fedora.repo), updates-released (fedora-updates.repo), extras (fedora-extras.repo) and livna (livna.repo) repositories; these are all continually kept compatible with one another, and only for a few obscure programs you might have to go to rpmforge repositories or others. You can look at http://www.fedorafaq.org/fc3/samples/yum.conf and take the Fedora Extras and Livna.org sections and put them in the appropriate .repo files (in /etc/yum.repos.d/), and JPackage (lots of java packages, also kept compatible with extras) also if you like. Leave the stock yum.conf though.
