The error message was so similar (just the path name changed) that I
didn't think it necessary.  Again, for those who haven't read the full
thread, ipv6 is entirely shut off on this system so its not that.

Here is more complete data on my problem:

Verifying I have the right rpmfusion packages:

[root neuron ~]# rpm -qa | fgrep rpmf
rpmfusion-nonfree-release-8-6.noarch
rpmfusion-free-release-8-6.noarch

Demonstration of problem when "mirrorlist" line is upcommented and
"baseurl" line is commented in /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo:

[root neuron ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-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. Please verify its path and try again


If I now comment the "mirrorlist" line and uncomment the "baseurl" line
in /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo I get:

[root neuron ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/10/Everything/i386/os/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again


I notice the "Trying other mirror."  That seems strange as its now operating
on the baseurl, not the mirrorlist.  Here's the first lines of
/etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo:

[rpmfusion-free]
name=RPM Fusion for Fedora $releasever - Free
baseurl=http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/os/
#mirrorlist=http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora


Nota bene: I've disabled all the other rpmfusion repos ("enable=0")
except rpmfusion-free so as to keep things simple.

One more piece of data which I just discovered.
If I do a "yum clean all" first I get:

[root neuron ~]# yum clean all
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Cleaning up Everything
[root neuron ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/10/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
livna   
livna/pr
http://fedora.mirrors.tds.net/pub/fedora/releases/10/Everything/i386/os/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
fedora  
fedora/p
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/10/Everything/i386/os/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again
[root neuron ~]# 

I notice similar [Errno 4] messages from the  livna and fedora repos, but they somehow recover!
Why not the rpmfusion repo?

For completeness I now will uncomment "mirrorlist" and comment "baseurl" in
/etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo and run the same commands:

[root neuron ~]# yum clean all
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Cleaning up Everything
[root neuron ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/10/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
livna   
livna/pr
fedora  
fedora/p
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-10&arch=i386 error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>

Hmm. This time livna failed, retried and succeeded, fedora had no
problem at all, and rpmfusion failed and did not recover.
I'm completely stumped.
