Updating repositories

Following Fedora Core 4 Tips & Tricks, I added support for the Livna and freshrpms software repositories. Following Tips & Tricks we do (as root, or with sudo):

#rpm -ihv
# rpm -ihv

to make the repository information available to yum and apt. In addition, I also had to import the Livna GPG key:

rpm --import

and now both repositories are available.

Isn't it true that we shouldn't use livna repository with the
freshrpms and others ( called RPMforge) ?

This guy has a warning on that.

So far I haven't had a serious problem with that. Well, OK, there seems to be a version problem with the mplayer DVD package, but other than that, nothing.
