I have the rpmfusion repo setup,but I get a yum error message:

Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorl...d-10&arch=i386 <http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-updates-released-10&arch=i386> error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free-updates. Please verify its path and try again

Does anyone not what know what is going on ??

Can you resolve mirrors.rpmfusion.org:

    [root prophead ~]# host mirrors.rpmfusion.org
    mirrors.rpmfusion.org has address 129.143.116.10
    mirrors.rpmfusion.org has address 213.129.242.84

If not, then your DNS isn't set up correctly.  Get that fixed and you'll
probably be OK.

I can Ping those two IPs without any problems so that would rule out DNS problems.
Am I right on that ??

Not if you pinged by IP address.  If you pinged by NAME (e.g. "ping
mirrors.rpmfusion.org"), then that would rule out DNS as a name
resolution had to occur.

The "host" command simply does a DNS lookup of the given FQDN (fully
qualified domain name) and returns the IP address(es) of the servers
with that name.  In this case, there's two servers in a DNS round robin
load-balanced (also called a DNS-RR) cluster.
