EnablingRpmFusionDuringFedoraInstall

Using RPM Fusion at installation time

In current Fedora releases, Anaconda (the Fedora installer) is capable of using additional RPM repositories during install. This is done using the process described in the Adding the RPM Fusion repositories during install steps below.

Adding the RPM Fusion repositories during install

  1. Use the normal method to begin installation of Fedora.
  2. Move through the normal screens to get to the Additional Tasks screen.

Adding the RPM Fusion '''Free''' repositories during install

To use the RPM Fusion repos, at least the Free repo must be added.

  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:
  5. Click URL is a mirror list

  6. Click OK

Adding the RPM Fusion '''Non-free''' repositories during install

  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 Non-free

  3. Set Repository type: HTTP/FTP

  4. Set Repository URL depending distribution version:
  5. Click URL is a mirror list

  6. Click OK

*Note: For other architectures eg x86_64 or PPC, change i386 to x86_64 or ppc.

*Note: For the Non-free repository, the Free repository must also be added. This is because the non-free repository packages can depend on packages available only in the free repo.

Selecting RPM Fusion packages during install

  1. Add the Free and optionally the Non-free repos, as described above
  2. Select the Customize now checkbox

  3. Click on Next

  4. Anaconda proceeds to the next screen where you customize your installation by selecting additional packages
  5. Select at least the rpmfusion-release package
  6. Select Next.

*Note: Many RPM Fusion packages can be found in the group Applications and the subgroups Sound and Video, and Games.

The repository won't be enabled or used in the installed system if you forget to select rpmfusion-release, but you can fix that simply by installing the rpmfusion-release package later, using either Add/Remove Software or yum.
