    Current Fedora repositories

    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.

    RPMFusion (http://rpmfusion.org)

    You'll need the RPMFusion repos, so hit the link and follow the instructions there.

    Livna (http://rpm.livna.org/)

    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
    Code:
    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
    Code:
    su -c 'yum install libdvdcss'
    Adobe

    The Adobe repositories provide the Adobe Reader and the flash plugin. To install this repository issue the following commands:
    Code:
    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:
    Code:
    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:
    Code:
    yum list AdobeReader*
    You'll see several listed. To get more information on a particular package use something like:
    Code:
    yum info AdobeReader.chs
    Available Packages
    Name       : AdobeReader_chs
    Arch       : i486
    Version    : 8.1.7
    Release    : 1
    Size       : 59 M
    Repo       : adobe-linux-i386
    Summary    : Adobe Reader for Linux。查看、导览和打印 PDF 文档的应用程序。
    URL        : http://www.adobe.com
    License    : Commercial
    Description: Adobe Reader 允许您查看、导览和打印 PDF 文件。本版本添加了高级表单支持(保存)、与 Adobe
               : Acrobat 工作流程更好的整合、自定义工具栏和更好的整体性能。
    To install the flash plugin issue following command:
    Code:
    su -c 'yum install flash-plugin'
    Google

    There are apparently several toys available through Google's repository. To install the Google repository issue the following commands:
    Code:
    wget https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
    su -c 'rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub'
    Then create the repository file.
    Code:
    su -c nano /etc/yum.repos.d/google-i386.repo'
    Add the following text to the file, save and exit the editor.
    Code:
    [google]
    name=Google - i386
    baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/i386
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1
    With the above repositories installed your yum repolist command should mirror mine:
    Code:
    [glenn@phenom13 ~]$ yum repolist
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, refresh-packagekit
    repo id                               repo name                                                status
    adobe-linux-i386                      Adobe Systems Incorporated                                       17
    fedora                                Fedora 13 - i386                                         16,690+124
    google                                Google - i386                                                     5
    livna                                 rpm.livna.org for 13 - i386                                       3
    rpmfusion-free                        RPM Fusion for Fedora 13 - Free                                 400
    rpmfusion-free-updates                RPM Fusion for Fedora 13 - Free - Updates                       129
    rpmfusion-nonfree                     RPM Fusion for Fedora 13 - Nonfree                              134
    rpmfusion-nonfree-updates             RPM Fusion for Fedora 13 - Nonfree - Updates                     16
    updates                               Fedora 13 - i386 - Updates                                1,770+109
    repolist: 19,164
    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:
    Code:
    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 forgotten anything

    Re: Current Fedora repositories

    They should be included on your system but they are disabled by default. You can enable them with yum's --enablerepo argument, for example:
    Code:
    yum --enablerepo=updates-source <action> <package names>
    yumdownloader (a part of the yum-utils package) also has a handy --source argument:
    Code:
    yumdownloader --source <pacakge names>
