I am using fedora 23 beta and I would need to add the rpm fusion repositories (for gstreamer plugins ugly for example).

How can I do that? On the website support is indicated for up to fedora 22 only. Should I somehow use the rawhide repositories?

UPDATE 2015-11-04 You may do :

rpm --import "" ""
dnf install

with gpg verification, so no need use --nogpg.

If you haven't modify any /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion.repo file, it will enable rpmfusion-(non)free-updates-testing repos , until new update of rpmfusion-(non)free-release ..., all should work without modify any /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion.repo file.

From (front page of PRM fusion)

Note: Fedora pre-release repositories are available. They're just not yet browsable with this tool.

When testing Fedora pre-release, keep in mind that rpmfusion is maintained by volunteers. If a pre-release repository is not yet available, you can always try the old stable repository or the rawhide repository.

Please be patient or contribute if any package you need is not yet available.

gstreamer1-plugins-ugly have to may dependencies, but you can install the fedora 22 version of gstreamer1-libav:

sudo dnf install

Thanks, but I would need a more generic solution, as, as you say, dependencies soon become a problem. What about the rawhide repos?

there has never been a real rawhide for rpmfusion! ( ) unofficial but you can install from here:

Hi @davidva, thanks! For rpmfusion a pre-release of fedora lives in a limbo. A solution like yours should be officially available.

Okay maybe that work in case of gstreamer. But what about vlc player???? it asks for dependecies. This post should clearly not be an right answer with all respect for posting it.

@Marko eeem?? dependencies is solved in the tar pack... you are wrong; already tested in mock and my Fedora 23 beta...

The following commands worked for me (you have to be an administrator):

dnf install --nogpgcheck
dnf install --nogpgcheck

Hope that helps !

Why not just wait for Fedora 23 to be released? At that point it will be a complete offering from the Fedora Project and not a beta release that you're treating as a final product. Also, at that point "things will just work" without forcing the issue due to impatience.

Please, don't read Fedora 23 related posts if that annoys you. There can be many reasons to install a distribution before it's released.

And those reasons are?

Glenn gravatar imageGlenn ( 2015-10-25 18:29:13 -0500 )edit

Testing and providing feedback is a prominent reason. Fedora Project depends on testers, many of whom are volunteers to run through the test cases.
