    Fedora Extras is ready!

    Get your fanciest trousers and party hat out, Fedora-Extras is ready! From the announcement:

    "Thanks to the efforts of all the Extras contributors, you can now get
    Fedora Extras packages from the main Fedora download site at
    http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../linux/extras/

    Fedora Extras are sets of packages that augment Fedora Core but do not
    replace Fedora Core component packages. These packages, like all packages
    that are part of The Fedora Project, must conform to the legal
    requirements of the project and conform to the Fedora Extras policies."

    The full announcement can be found here

    On other news: The Fedora User and Developer Conference, FUDCon, is shaping up. See the FUDCon website.

    Looking at http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../linux/extras/ it seems the Extras are only available for FC3 (for now?).

    Extras are available for all versions of FC. For FC1
    Code:
    http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1/i386/RPMS.stable/
    for FC2,
    Code:
    http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/i386/RPMS.stable/
    and for FC3,
    Code:
    http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/3/i386/RPMS.extras/
    I don't think it is good idea to mix them (e.g., to use FC3 rpms for FC2), for potential dependency problems and possible incompatibility.

    I am using Dag, FreshRPMS, Dries and NewRPMS for FC3 , and i think this repositories are not compatible with fedora.us or livna.org.

    Fedora Extras is the offical extra-repository, some repositories may not be compatible with it, Like Dag or NewRPMS, and if not, you should not use them. Extras will most likely be part of Core 4 (out of the box). Repositories will have to be compatible with Extras or make it very clear that they are not. Contact your repository managers and ask.

    I've been using the fedora-extras repo (for FC3) since Jan 24th.
    This news seemed a little bit outdated to me.

    Transaction Check Error: package liboil-0.2.2-1.1.fc3.rf (which is newer than liboil-0.2.2-1.1.fc3.fr) is already installed
    file /usr/lib/liboiltmp1.so.0.0.0 conflicts between attempted installs of liboil-0.2.2-1.1.fc3.fr and liboil-0.3.0-1

    That was there before extras was released, I ran into it

    I believe i removed liboil and/or sfwdc or something like that and did the upgrade and installed anything that was removed.

    ogetbilo,

    You might have been using pre-extras but you weren't using extras the dir wasn't created tell today. I actually saw this on Seth Vidal blog tonight and was going to post it here, but foolish beat me to it.....

    If one of you have a link to a list of the current stable extras with a description of what all those packages are, please post it.

    I don't see a link that describes packages, (like debian) but you could always view the tree and

    yum info <filename>

    to get the basic idea.

    Seth Vidal always has some good info on his blog (maintains yum) so you might check that too.

    By looking at file dates, I get impression that what used to be called pre-extras is now called extras ... no significant difference except more files added...

    I totally agree, just saying you weren't actually using what is now "extras" symantics, but non the less.
