How do I get all the latest stuff for Fedora using yum?
This page lists the yum repository settings (configuration files) for my current Fedora 16 installs (x86_64 boxes). It assumes you already have yum installed.
Please send updates/corrections to email@example.com. Last updated: 2012/02/21.
In the old days you used to have to set up yum basics like GPG keys and such. You don't have to do this any more.
However you can get some nice features by doing
yum -y install yum-plugin-*
RPM Fusion provides rpms that Fedora / RedHat don't want to ship. Figure the rest out for yourself.
Install like this:
curl "http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x855099B249C8885A" | rpm --import --verbose - rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/16/Everything/x86_64/os/rpmfusion-free-release-16-1.2.noarch.rpm
Then try installing some software that's not in the default Fedora repos. Like vlc.
I personally keep the rpmfusion repos disabled in case I need them explicitly:
sudo sed -i -e 's/enabled=1/enabled=0/' /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion*.repo
Developers may be interested in the Google yum repo:
cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo <<EOF [google] name=Google - i386 baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/i386 enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub EOF
Skype does have a yum repo, but it's out of date; it only have version 2.1 of the Skype linux client, and a later version is out.
And if you want to read encrypted DVDs:
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/repo/16/x86_64/libdvdcss-1.2.10-1.x86_64.rpm
You can also add the livna.org repo (though it only provides libdvdcss* repos):
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/repo/16/x86_64/livna-release-1-1.noarch.rpm
I appreciate updates/corrections to this section sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yum is a package dependency mangement tool that can help you stay up to date with the latest published Fedora software.
To learn more about Fedora, refer to The main Fedora web page.
Some people may have issues because they don't have the right GPG key -- if you see yum or up2date complaining about "bad GPG key", import the right ones with these commands:
rpm --import /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-*/*GPG-KEY* rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEYThis is mainly an issue if you are upgrading to Fedora from one of the Fedora test releases.
