RPM Fusion and are common third party package repositories for Fedora. You need them if you want to install media players, codecs and/or DVD playback libraries that are not part of the primary Fedora repository because of assumed issues like distribution licensing or similar.

Thus my question how to enable them in Fedora (>= 17)?

For RPM Fusion (free repository):

Get the release rpm:

$ wget\

Check the archive's integrity via:

$ rpm --checksig rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Which should fail with:


Add key to your gpg keyring for checking:

$ gpg --recv-keys KEY_ID

Compare the fingerprint with the published information on the RPM Fusion key site and possibly check the web of trust:

$ gpg --fingerprint KEY_ID

If successful make the key known to rpm:

$ gpg --export -a KEY_ID > rpmfusion.asc
# rpm --import rpmfusion.asc

Check the integrity of the package for real:

$ rpm --checksig rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

If it is ok install it:

# yum localinstall rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

This will create config files under /etc/yum.repos.d/ and key files under /etc/pki/rpm-gpg.

Note that the # means that you have to execute those commands as root.

Also the current rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm is signed with the RPM Fusion Fedora 15 key but it is the right setup package for Fedora 17 as well.

For the nonfree RPM Fusion repository you have to wget the analogous setup rpm as well.

For you have to:

$ wget

The other steps are analogous.


As the time of writing the following keys were used:\
KEY_ID: 00a4d52b
key fingerprint: A828 D083 D794 92E9 C52B  C305 ADC5 70DE 00A4 D52B
KEY_ID: a109b1ec
key fingerprint: 037B 5D9B E1B6 B673 2A23  13B5 7129 5441 A109 B1E

Also, in case livna is not accessible (like it happened to me for a full day), you can use ATrpms.
