Repository configuration for Fedora 13, and a few earlier releases.
I don't see these repositories mentioned together on one page or web site, so I thought I'd throw this together.
You'll need the RPMFusion
repos, so hit the link and follow the instructions there.
If you want to be able to play DVD video you'll need a file called libdvdcss
so you'll need the Livna repository. To set up the Livna repository, open a terminal and type
su -c 'rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm'
su -c 'rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna'
Then install libdvdcss with the command
su -c 'yum install libdvdcss'
The Adobe repositories provide the Adobe Reader and the flash plugin. To install this repository issue the following commands:
su -c 'rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm'
su -c 'rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux'
To install Adobe Reader issue the following command:
su -c 'yum install AdobeReader_enu'
This reader is available in several languages. The one above is the English version. To list all available issue the following command:
yum list AdobeReader*
You'll see several listed. To get more information on a particular package use something like:
yum info AdobeReader.chs

To install the flash plugin issue following command:

There are apparently several toys available through Google's repository. To install the Google repository issue the following commands:
su -c 'rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub'
Then create the repository file.
su -c nano /etc/yum.repos.d/google-i386.repo'
Add the following text to the file, save and exit the editor.
name=Google - i386
With the above repositories installed your yum repolist
command should mirror mine:
[glenn@phenom13 ~]$ yum repolist

I prefer to leave these additional repositories disabled (with the exception of RPMFusion of course) after I've gotten what I need from them. At that point they don't need to be enabled, but there's no harm done if they are. To disable any of the repositories you've installed open the corresponding file with a text editor. Using Livna as an example:
su -c 'nano /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo'
Find the first instance of the line that reads enabled=1
and change it to read enabled=0
. Save and exit the editor. The Livna repository is now disabled.
I was considering closing this thread so that it doesn't become a question and answer session, but I'd prefer to leave it open for suggestions or critique. So, no questions
, but, if you have something to add feel free to post. Of course, we all know that I couldn't have possibly
