Here is what is required :

[ailurus]

baseurl=http://homerxing.fedorapeople.org/
enabled=1

Put this in a repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d and you are done….

Chrome – Chromium on Linux (repo)

Fedora people put up a repo for the chrome web browser and it is quite frequently updated. All you need to do to install the browser is following:

sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/chrome.repo

and add the following lines

name=Chromium Test Packages
baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F$releasever/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Once this is done, you can install the browser with yum as follows:

sudo yum install chromium

RPMFusion release for YUM.

For people who have used yum on Fedora, you must have seen that couple of packages that you require are on Livna and couple of them on DAG and some others on FreshRPMs and Dribble. And for those of you, who have tried to install the packages from all these repositories, I know it is difficult. The repo\’s never worked too well together.

So finallly there is a nice solution to all these problems, RPMFusion is the solution. This is a effort to merge the repo in all the four above mentioned repo. just now installed the repo and am updating my system and definately hope to get a lot lesser problems now. 🙂

So HAPPY installing new software and updates.
