 * The RPM Fusion for EL repositories are still in the early testing stages; hence you (for now) need to enable epel-testing as well, as some of the RPM Fusion packages depend on packages that are currently in epel-testing.

Installing Free and Nonfree Repositories

Installation can be done either using a web browser, or via the command line.

Graphical Setup via Firefox web browser

Enabling access to the free repository is easy and basically only one step:

  1. click on one of the following files, depending on what the distributions you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking Enter a few times:

Verbose: Once you clicked on above link Firefox will ask you how to Open the file. Here you can simply use the default and open the file with the default application Package Installer. Then Firefox will call Package Kit, which asks Do you want to install this file ?. Click OK to begin install; The install should go through various testing, and installing stages, and then complete. That's all.

Once that succeeds, you can enable access to the nonfree repositories:

  1. click on one of the following files, depending on what the distributions you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking Enter a few times:

The individual steps after clicking on the link are the same as the ones for the free repository.

Command Line Setup using rpm

To enable access to both the free and the nonfree repository use the following command:

  • Fedora 8, 9 or 10:

    su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
  • Fedora Alpha, Beta, Preview, Rawhide, RC, Snapshot:

    su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm'
  • RHEL5 or compatible like CentOS:

    su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm'

More information's

  • You need to enable EPEL on RHEL5 or compatible distributions like CentOS before you enable RPM Fusion for EL

  • The RPM Fusion for EL repositories are still in the early testing stages; hence you (for now) need to enable epel-testing as well, as some of the RPM Fusion packages depend on packages that are currently in epel-testing.
  • All users that used Freshrpms or Livna installed properly (e.g. by installing one of their foo-release packages) got RPM Fusion free and nonfree repositories enabled automatically.
