Using RPM Fusion at installation time

In Fedora 10 and later Anaconda (the Fedora installer) is capable of activating and using the RPM Fusion repositories during install.

Adding the RPM Fusion repositories during install

Before you start installing Fedora making sure you have a supported network card and 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 Additional Tasks screen. Then follow these steps to enable the RPM Fusion:

  1. Enable the the RPM Fusion free repositories

    1. In the 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 and the architecture. For Fedora 10 on i386 use
      http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-10&arch=i386
    5. Click URL is a mirror list

    6. Click OK

  2. Enable the the RPM Fusion nonfree repositories

    1. After enabling the free repository in the 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 and the architecture. For Fedora 10 on i386 use
      http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=nonfree-fedora-10&arch=i386
    5. Click URL is a mirror list

    6. Click OK

Now simply continue installing Fedora.

/!\ Important notes:'':

  • For other architectures like x86_64 or PPC, change i386 to x86_64 or ppc 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.
