I just installed Fedora 21 on my system and when I go to install RMPFusion through the default installer (Rawhide and 21), it keeps giving me the message "Installation of RPM Fusion (free) Repository Configuration failed". I've tried several times, and Terminal won't let me install it either. Am I doing anything wrong? I've had this problem for other .rpm files such as cairo dock as well.

You should put the output of the commands to really see what happens. Also be careful with Rawhide... did you enable it?

i'm getting similar "failure to install _______" messages when installing through Fedora's Software application. I get it when install GNOME Tweak Tool and keep getting caught in a "loading loop" when installing other software (guake, for instance) and then when i reboot the computer and log back in, i find that the packages actually installed.

Hello Monado, first uninstall your rpm repos

su -c 'yum remove rpmfusion-free-release rpmfusion-nonfree-release'

Now install these again

su -c 'yum -y install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-21.noarch.rpm'

su -c 'yum -y install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-21.noarch.rpm'

Good luck :)
