I found this website which has free and non free software, unencombered by patents. Russia does not recognize software patents.



or just enter [url]http://pkgs.org/ ("http://pkgs.org/fedora-17/russian-fedora-nonfree-i386/russianfedora-nonfree-release-17-1.R.noarch.rpm.html"[/URL) and search for Fedora

Why would you want to use inferior **** (there packaging standard is very poor) from an untrusted repo?
What does it provide that rpmfusion can't?

Did you realize that you posted this twice? (I'm guessing, as both posts are in the same forum, that this was an error rather than design.) You should ask a mod to delete one of them.

I'm going to agree with Leigh in the other thread though--rpmfusion provides just about all you may need--if you do need libdvdcss as well, that's available from livna and atrpms

I hate typing from a laptop with the synaptic pad. My palm rests on the pad, and it triggered a post. Sigh.. where is the wireless mouse.

As far as I know, from exploring the mirrors, the Russion site also includes rpmfusion stuff.(rsynced)

I did think they had later releases of flash, so that I can continue to follow my online computer courses without having to fallback to Windows

As someone from an increasingly socialistic nation with a failing centrally planned economy and an burgeoning police-state with horrible surveillance and controls on citizens - it sounds like a nice place to emigrate to.

And, thanks to the political twist that occurred at about 2:14AM, this thread's closed. Also, got to remember that we, in the aforementioned Country, have to abide by the copyright and patent laws and can't be pushing ways around them in this here forum, 'cause we could get sued in this here free Country, which would make it not-so-free for us! So, it's double-closed!
