The Dribble, Freshrpms and Livna teams, already joined by some Fedora contributors, are proud to announce the RPM Fusion project.

Line 5: Line 3:
RPM Fusion aims to bring together many packagers from various 3rd party repos and build a single add-on repository for Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The RPM Fusion team is proud to announce the public availability of our repositories:
Line 7: Line 5:
We don't have a repository ready for end users yet, but we are actively working on merging the following ones:
   * http://dribble.org.uk/
   * http://freshrpms.net/
   * http://rpm.livna.org/
 * "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 non-free software, that is everything else which can't be in free; this includes software with public available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions
Line 12: Line 8:
We will have two distinct repositories: free and non-free. Free will contain Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Packaging Guidelines) which can't be included in Fedora -- for example because it might be patent encumbered in the US. Non-free will contain everything else which is not free software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines), like software with public available source-code that has "no commercial use" restrictions or the graphics drivers from AMD and Nvidia. We provide support for all 'current' versions of Fedora including devel, for i386, x86_64, ppc and ppc64.
Line 14: Line 10:
Repositories and infrastructure will follow Fedora where possible. This means using Fedora's packaging guidelines (except for legal), Fedora's review process for new submissions, Fedora's VCS structure etc. 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 This also means that Livna will not be maintained any more and it is superseded by RPM Fusion.
Line 16: Line 12:
It will contain add-on packages and not replacements in relation to the base package set. Whereby the base package set is defined as: RHEL/CentOS + EPEL or Fedora (Fedora 7+). Please read our wiki page about how to enable these repositories:

Line 18: Line 15:
It will contain kernel module packages in the main repo, even if Fedora will drop them (which looks likely as of August 2007).

We aim to provide support for all 'current' versions of Fedora including devel, for i386, ppc, ppc64 and x86_64.
RPM Fusion is project started by the Dribble, Freshrpms and Livna teams. It aims to bring together many packagers from various 3rd party repositories and build a single add-on repository for Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

RPM Fusion launched

The RPM Fusion team is proud to announce the public availability of our 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 non-free software, that is everything else which can't be in free; this includes software with public available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions

We provide support for all 'current' versions of Fedora including devel, for i386, x86_64, ppc and ppc64.

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.

Please read our wiki page about how to enable these repositories: http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

RPM Fusion is project started by the Dribble, Freshrpms and Livna teams. It aims to bring together many packagers from various 3rd party repositories and build a single add-on repository for Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

We hope to attract new Fedora packagers and many other 3rd party repositories.
