Red Hat Enterprise Linux Enable rpm fusion Repository

Installing Free and Non free 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
Download following file and install for free rpm fusion repository :

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm

Download following file and install for non free rpm fusion repository :

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm


Installing free and non free rpm fusion

#rpm -ivh rpmfusion-free-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm

#rpm -ivh rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm

#yum repolist

-- for update repository list


Important notes



  • You need to enable EPEL on RHEL5 or compatible distributions like CentOS before you enable RPM Fusion for EL.
  • 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.
