I remember ubuntu like a system which had every repository that I could enable and download apps. But now in fedora I can use only her repository and it's all. Do you know if I can change my fedora to be more like ubuntu?

  • In other words, you're asking Is there is a PPA-service equivalent in the Fedora world? (That question is about making one's own packages available, but in the end it's the same thing: you can install from Ubuntu PPAs because people can and do set them up.) Commented Mar 19, 2011 at 11:10
  • But how can I add it as a repo? I want to use it by my own software manager.

  • If that's your problem, it's not at all apparent in the question you posted. But it's a duplicate too: How to add a repository on Fedora? Commented Mar 19, 2011 at 11:39
  • I don't quite understand your question: Do you have problems adding repositories or do you have problems finding a repository that has the packages you need?

you can download rpm from sites like rpmfusion and rpmfind etc.RPM Fusion Repo

or repositry information can be manually entered & configured in /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion.repo

once a repo is added to yum, you can enable/disable using "yum --enable-repo" or "yum --disable-repo"


If you are not satisfied with the vanilla version of Fedora, you can try FusionLinux. Its 100% compatible with Fedora and combines free and non-free software to bring the user the most advanced experience on the Linux platform.
