[SOLVED] Fedora 15 Using yum to update the repositories only

I am a long time user of slackware and arch. I am trying out Fedora 15 with gnome 3 as curiosity.

I ran this command as root
Xorg.conf file error when trying to load fedora or reinstall fedora
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 17, 2008
So i was having a lot of problems with my boot grub see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...fedora-669797/ but I finally got that to be fixed.
I am now having a problem that I think my xorg.conf file has been deleted or is not being found. When I choose fedora in the grub i get blue and green and lots of blocks and lines all over the screen which obviously isn't to cool. And so I tried to reinstall fedora and when I get to the graphical part of the installation the screen begins to put the nonsense on the screen as well. Do I have a bad install CD or what is happening that is causing this problem.
Thanks for all your help in advance,

How to yum install Node.JS on Amazon Linux
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 15, 2014
I've seen the writeup on using yum to install the dependencies, and then installing Node.JS & NPM from source. While this does work, I feel like Node.JS and NPM should both be in a public repo somewhere.
How can I install Node.JS and NPM in one command on AWS Amazon Linux?

Your Fedora Core 3 yum.conf using mirrors
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 13, 2004
At the moment I think it will be easier for me to not try and understand things and instead just copy and paste.
If you have configured your yum.conf for fedora core 3 to use local mirrors *and* you are kind of near japan / hawaii / pacific then please paste what you have in your yum.conf. Do i need to adjust other files too if i am going to use it?
Fedora: How can I add myself back to sudoers file?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 19, 2014
I've accidentally removed myself from sudoers file by doing `usermod -G user group` without `-a`, and now I am not in the `sudoers` group. I've tried doing `su -` and entering root's password but it says `su: Authecation failure`. Is there a way to add myself back? Using Fedora 20.

fc6 reinstall yum from dvd
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 23, 2006
I have upgraded by dvd from fc3_64 to fc6_64. My yum does not work (multiple livna repos errno14, which are not actually there more than once). I have had no luck with any of many suggested changes, so I think it will be best to remove and then reinstall it. Ideally, I would like to install it from the dvd as my internet connection is very sloooww.
So: is removing and reinstalling yum a good idea?
if so, can I do it from the dvd, and if so how?
if not, how can I do it on via the internet?
and especially, what files should I delete?
I have been told that this would do the trick:
"rpm -e yum-3.0-.0-6"
"rpm -ivh yum-xyz". "rpm -F"
However, will this really remove all the correct files, and where do I need to put what files from the dvd to let this work.
Any help much appreciated,
