We offer the ATI and Nvidia closed-source drivers in a Fedora-compatible RPM package for users whose video cards are not yet fully supported with the stock open source drivers.

We have two separate repositories:

 * "free" for Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines) which can't be included in Fedora because it might be patent encumbered in the US
 * "nonfree" for redistributable non-free software, that is everything else which can't be in free; this includes software with publicly available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions

All users that installed Livna properly (e.g. by installing the livna-release package) will get RPM Fusion free and nonfree repositories enabled automatically. This also means that Livna will not be maintained any more and it is superseded by RPM Fusion.
