That is what I got according to your advises:

1) My OS is FC5 sorry I didn't tell before.
2) I don't have such folder as  "etc/yum.reposd"
   
   but here are some search results: 
   file:///etc/yum
   file:///etc/logrotate.d/yum
   file:///etc/rc.d/init.d/yum
   file:///usr/bin/yum
   file:///usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum
   file:///usr/share/logwatch/scripts/logfiles/yum
   file:///usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/yum
   file:///var/cache/yum
3) After that I did what you asked me and here is the output:
    
"root at localhost etc]# wget

4) Next I typed "chmod" command: 
[root at localhost etc]# chmod 644 gstreamer-0.10-
chmod: cannot access `gstreamer-0.10-': No such file or directory
[root at localhost etc]# chmod 644 gstreamer-0.10-*  <---- for this one I
got no out put.


5) And finally I've done yum install gstreamer-universe and this is what
displayed on my screen:

"[root at localhost etc]# yum install gstreamer-universe
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
livna
[1/4]
core
[2/4]
updates
[3/4]
extras
[4/4]
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: gstreamer-universe
Nothing to do"


What is the problem? I ain't defined my repos? cause it didn't appeared
in yumex repository stack.... should I define them at all? Or maybe I'm
missing something else?


Sincerely. Ivan
