= 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://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for Fedora 12, 13 and 14]]
  * [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for Fedora Rawhide and what will become Fedora 15 (Alpha, Beta and snapshots)]]
  * [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion free for RHEL5 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://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora 12, 13 and 14]]
  * [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora Rawhide and what will become Fedora 15 (Alpha, Beta and snapshots)]]
  * [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm|RPM Fusion nonfree for RHEL5 or compatible like CentOS]]

~-(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 12, 13 and 14: {{{
su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck 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 Rawhide and what will become Fedora 15 (Alpha, Beta and snapshots): {{{
su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck 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 -Uvh 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'
}}}

== Important notes ==

 * You need to enable [[http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL|EPEL]] on RHEL5 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]].

 * 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.
