Yes. What about the repositories? They don't work for me since three or four days.

I'm not sure that the BLAG repo is working yet, but I've been able to use a mirror. Create a file (I used the name "kimsufi.repo") under /etc/yum.repos.d with the following contents:

Code:
[blag]
name=BLAG
baseurl=http://ks355011.kimsufi.com/blag/90000/en/os/i386/BLAG/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0


Once done, I was able to perform a "yum update" as normal.

Yes it works for me. On my desktop.
I think it will work on my laptop with replacing i386 by x86_64?

My thanks also. Blag 90000 repos still not found, but your fix worked fine.

Now, does anyone have a similar fix for the apt-get repos? They likewise haven't worked for me for several days.

The file you need to edit is
Code:
/etc/apt/sources.list

It should look something like (all on one line)
Code:
rpm http://ks355011.kimsufi.com/blag/90000/en/os i386/BLAG blag dribble fedora freshrpms kriehn livna fsfla

For comparison see
Code:
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/blag.list

Just to clear things up.

The server that provides the DNS for the forums and the main site belonged to Jeff and went offline.

I have taken control of the DNS for now.

If anyone has a backup of the main site, let me know and we will get it back online.

Right now, www.blagblagblag.org forwards to the forums. It will remain that way until Jeff returns or until we can get the main site online.

Our friend extraspecialbitter has an up to date archive of the site and is transferring it over. It will be on tonight I imagine.

When Jeff is back, I will keep it on here anyways and keep it mirrored.
