you can get the most stuff from the rpmfusion 3rd party repo: http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

stuff like flash or adobe or the SUN jre (not openjdk) you have to get from their sites and download the rpm's or repo's yourself though.

this guide always helps a lot: http://www.howtoforge.org/the-perfect-desktop-fedora9-gnome
it is currently just for F9 but 99% will work for F10 as well and I am sure it will be updated after the F10 release.

I wish we could get some fedora-restricted-extras package in the repos or something, I just installed ubuntu 8.10 on my test pc and just had to "apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras" which gave me Everything i needed:


The following extra packages will be installed:
cabextract flashplugin-nonfree freepats gsfonts-x11 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

I'm enjoying using the Fedora 10 preview--except I can't use amarok to play mp3's. How do I "just use RPMfusion"? I certainly don't want to add it to my regular yum repositories, because the system would be trashed the next time I try to update. I don't know what to do to just get amarok-extras-nonfree from RPMfusion or some other repo.

how about add rpmfusion, install codecs, remove rpmfusion, update?

by the way .... the sytem never thrashed for me when using livna (rpmfusion) before, just as long as you stick with one community repo, check what you do or wait for final. i see no reason *not* to keep rpmfusion enabled.

I'm not experienced enough to know the exact commands that I should type at the command line to do this safely. Also, I'm not clear about what is the exact relationship between livna and rpmfusion. I had assumed until now that they were two entirely distinct repos.

Actually, the problem is more complicated, as I've used autonine to set up skype, dvd playback and the flash-plugin. Autonine has added livna repos and I just don't understand how and where things are in the livna repos and I could find no documentation. So, my guess is somewhere in my /etc/yum.repos.d is a repo that has the right codecs, but I don't have a clue how to find.
