Using RPM Fusion at Installation Time

In Fedora 10 (and later versions), Anaconda (Fedora's installer) is capable of activating and using the RPM Fusion repositories during installation.

Adding the RPM Fusion Repositories During Install

/!\ Before you start installing Fedora making sure you have a supported network card over which a connection to the Internet can be established.

Start the install and move through the different Anaconda screens where you select language, keyboard layout, root password and target volume until you get to the Package Installation Defaults screen:

  • addrepo.gif

Now follow these steps to enable the RPM Fusion free repository:

  1. In the Installing from Additional Repositories section, click the Add additional software repositories button.

  2. In the Edit Repository dialog, set the Repository name: 'RPM Fusion - Free'
  3. Set Repository type: HTTP/FTP

  4. Set Repository URL depending distribution version (15, 16, 17, etc.) and the architecture (i386, x86_64, etc.). For example, on Fedora 16 x86_64
    http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/16/x86_64
    .
  5. Click URL is a mirror list

  6. Click OK

    addrepo-free.gif

Once you have enabled the free repository you can also enable the RPM Fusion nonfree repository:

  1. After enabling the free repository in the Installing from Additional Repositories section, click the Add additional software repositories button again.

  2. In the Edit Repository dialog, set the Repository name: RPM Fusion - Nonfree

  3. Set Repository type: HTTP/FTP

  4. Set Repository URL depending distribution version (15, 16, 17, etc.) and the architecture (i386, x86_64, etc.). For example, on Fedora 16 on x86_64 use
    http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/16/x86_64
  5. Click URL is a mirror list

  6. Click OK

    addrepo-nonfree.gif

Now, simply continue installing Fedora. A subset of the RPM Fusion package set will automatically get added to your install -- that includes the rpmfusion-release rpms that contain the .repo files for RPM Fusion as well as some commonly used packages like gstreamer-plugings-ugly (if you stick to the default package set that Fedora defines).

/!\ Important notes:':

  • The screenshots above are from Fedora 10, but the necessary steps are, so far (Fedora 16), identical for all subsequent Fedora releases.
  • For other architectures like x86_64 or PPC/PPC64, change i386 to x86_64, ppc, or ppc64 in the repository URL.

  • Packages in the nonfree repository require packages from the free repository to be available, hence you must enable the free repository if you want to enable the nonfree repository.

  • If you enable the Fedora Updates repository during install then you need to activate the RPM Fusion Updates repositories during install in addition to the RPM Fusion Release repositories (the ones we just added above). The URLs for the Updates repositories are similar to the ones for the release repositories. Some examples:

    Repository

    URL for Fedora 16 i386

    RPM Fusion - Free Release

    http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/16/i386

    RPM Fusion - Nonfree Release

    http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/16/i386

    RPM Fusion - Free Update

    http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/updates/16/i386

    RPM Fusion - Nonfree Updates

    http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/updates/16/i386

More information

Selecting RPM Fusion packages during install

A subset of the RPM Fusion package set will automatically get added to your install when you enable the RPM Fusion repositories in Anaconda. That for example includes, but is not limited to the gstreamer-plugings-ugly package.

But you of course can select or deselect packages during install if you select the Customize now on the Anaconda screen where you enabled the RPM Fusion repositories. If you for example deselect the complete GNOME group and enable the group KDE instead then you'll automatically get k3b-extras-freeworld selected.

Many more packages from RPM Fusion can be found in the group Applications and its subgroups Games and Sound and Video. Please note that most of them are not installed by default.
