RPM Fusion launched
The RPM Fusion team is proud to announce the public availability of our repositories.
RPM Fusion provides packages not already found in Fedora for various reasons such as their stricter legal requirements. We have software to play all kinds of audio such as MP3 files and show DVDs, emulators, additional games and additional multimedia applications.
Additionally 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 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 This also means that Livna will not be maintained any more and it is superseded by RPM Fusion.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 a 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.
