I'm getting persistent errors from yum update on a machine running
FC5.ppc, saying it can't find a valid baseurl for repo: core.
Can you post the actual error trace ?

My
/etc/yum.repos.d contains the same files as on my x86 FC5 machines, except
that the livna ones are not there. Would installing them help, next time I
can get to livna? Or is this something else?>

I should perhaps have added that this is what I have as a core repo :

[root localhost ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.repo
[core]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-$releasever
Can you point your web browser at the specified mirrorlist ?
Mod the $releasever to 5!
Do you get the mirrorlist OK ?

Attempt to browse to one of the listed mirrors, replacing basearch and releasever. Can you get there ?

Does your web browser use proxies to get to external web sites ?

My understanding is that yum will try every mirror in the mirrorlist until it finds a mirror that works.

You could also direct yum to use a specific near mirror, using the baseurl. Or you could:
# yum disablerepo=core update

While this may give problems if a package update requires installation of a new package from the core (CD), it might get you around the {core} problem for now ?
