RPM Fusion launched

The RPM Fusion team is proud to announce the public availability of our repositories.

RPM Fusion provides packages which cannot be shipped in the official Fedora repository for various reasons. We provide support for all 'current' versions of Fedora including devel, for i386, x86_64, ppc and ppc64.

Sound and Video

We have all that is needed to play all kinds of audio such as MP3 files and plays DVDs.


We offer emulators for most retro platform: VICE for Commodore 64 and other vintage Commodore 8 bit computers; E-UAE for Amiga; Nestopia, FCEUltra for NES; ZSNES and Snes9x for Super NES and many many others!


Bub's Brothers, Mega Mario, Secret Maryo Chronicles, UFO: Alien Invasion, W├Ârms of Prey, xrick, GLtron and others!

Multimedia applications

We ship additional multimedia applications such as VLC, MPlayer, FFmpeg and Xine.

Kernel Drivers

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:

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 This also means that Livna will not be maintained any more and it is superseded by RPM Fusion.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:

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.
