All users that installed Livna properly (e.g. by installing the ''livna-release'' package) will get RPM Fusion free and nonfree repositories enabled automatically.

 1. If you are asked where to save the ''rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm'' choose the desktop and click save. When complete, view the download window, and double-click the downloaded ''rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm'' file
 1. Package Kit will ask ''Do you want to install this file ?''. Click OK to begin install.
 1. The install should go through various testing, and installing stages, and then complete.

= Installing Free and Nonfree Repositories =

We have two separate software repositories:

 * '''free''' for Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines) which the Fedora project cannot ship due to other reasons
 * '''nonfree''' for redistributable software that is not Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines); this includes software with publicly available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions

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

== Graphical Setup via Firefox web browser ==

 1. First enable access to the '''free''' repository. For users of gpk (gnome package kit) or kpackagekit in Fedora that is easy and basically only one step: just click on one of the following files, depending on what distribution you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking ''Enter'' a few times (¹):
/* [[http://example.com/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-branched.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for Fedora Branched and what will become Fedora 18]] */
  * [[http://example.com/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-19.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for Fedora 19]]
  * [[http://example.com/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-20.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for Fedora 20]]
  * [[http://example.com/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for Fedora Rawhide]]
  * [[http://example.com/free/el/updates/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-1.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for RHEL 5 or compatible like CentOS]]
  * [[http://example.com/free/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-6-1.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for RHEL 6 or compatible like CentOS]]

 1. Once that succeeds, you can enable access to the '''nonfree''' repositories by clicking on one of the following files, depending on what distribution you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking ''Enter'' a few times(¹):
/* * [[http://example.com/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-branched.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora Branched and what will become Fedora 18]] */

~-(¹) 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; Package Kit then will complain about a ''Missing security signature''; once you tell Package Kit to install the package nevertheless it will move on and install it. That's all.-~

== Command Line Setup using rpm ==

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

 * Fedora 14 to the most current: {{{
su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'
Line 44: Line 55:
== Rawhide ==

If you installed a Fedora Beta or you use Rawhide then use the following command to enable RPM Fusion free for rawhide:

{{{
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm
 * RHEL 5 or compatible like CentOS: {{{
su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-1.noarch.rpm ttp://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/5/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-1.noarch.rpm'
Line 52: Line 59:
And also this one if you want to use non-free too:  * RHEL 6 or compatible like CentOS: {{{
su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-6-1.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-6-1.noarch.rpm'
}}}
Line 54: Line 63:
{{{
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm

== Important notes ==

 * You need to enable [[http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL|EPEL]] on RHEL 5 & 6 or compatible distributions like CentOS ''before'' you enable RPM Fusion for EL. See the fedoraproject wiki for instruction [[http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#howtouse|how to enable EPEL]].

 * 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.

Installing Free and Nonfree Repositories

We have two separate software repositories:

  • free for Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines) which the Fedora project cannot ship due to other reasons

  • nonfree for redistributable software that is not Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines); this includes software with publicly available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions

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

Graphical Setup via Firefox web browser

  1. First enable access to the free repository.

Click OK to begin install; Package Kit then will complain about a Missing security signature; once you tell Package Kit to install the package nevertheless it will move on and install it.

Command Line Setup using rpm

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

  • Fedora 14 to the most current:

    su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'
  • RHEL 5 or compatible like CentOS:

    su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-1.noarch.rpm ttp://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/5/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-1.noarch.rpm'
  • RHEL 6 or compatible like CentOS:

    su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-6-1.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-6-1.noarch.rpm'

Important notes

  • You need to enable EPEL on RHEL 5 & 6 or compatible distributions like CentOS before you enable RPM Fusion for EL. See the fedoraproject wiki for instruction how to enable EPEL.

  • 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.
