Enabling other Third-Party Repositories

/!\ RPM Fusion is specifically designed to work with Fedora only. Mixing with other third-party RPM repositories can very easily lead to problems. Enable them at you own risk!

In this case, you should seriously consider using the priorities yum plugin to enforce ordered protection of repositories. Packages installed from repositories with a higher priority will never be upgraded with packages from repositories with a lower priority. The priorities are also in effect when a new package is installed - if a package is in more than one repository, it will be installed from the repository with the highest priority.

To install the priorities plugin, use the following command:

yum install yum-priorities

To enable this plugin, make sure that you have plugins=1 in /etc/yum.conf and verify that the /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf file has the following content:

[main]
enabled=1

If you want the plugin to protect high-priority repositories against obsoletes in low-priority repositories, enable the check_obsoletes boolean:

check_obsoletes=1

You can add priorities to repositories by adding the line:

priority=N

to a repository entry, where N is an integer number from 1 to 99. The default priority for repositories is 99. The repositories with the lowest number have the highest priority.

You should give a very high priority to Fedora and RPM Fusion repositories.
