I remember it took quite a while after the stable release of Fedora 23 before RPMfusion was ready to go with the new release. I depend on two packages (and their dependencies) from RPMfusion and I’m interested to know when they’re usually ready for new Fedora releases?

F24 Alpha is out today and I think I’ll install the beta once that is out. It would be inconvenient to loose RPMfusion packages for a month or two, and this is really my only concern with installing the Alpha and Beta.

I wouldn’t trust that repository, @florian.

And, when will it be ready for F25? When for rawhide?

When they are ready. RPMFusion people haven't supported alpha and rawhide for a while. See https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_b...

If rpmfusion released at least same time as Fedora 24, maybe more people will use Fedora. Like me Ubuntu user, I'm evaluating to use Fedora 24

@Biji: Fedora 24 has not even been released. Try Fedora 23.. still pretty modern..

Yes, it's safe - gpg sign & all code and specs available on github.

Yes, apparently there are packages in updates-testing repository. Have not tried yet though. :)

Does anyone remember how long it took RPMfusion to support F23 after F23 came out?

polemon gravatar imagepolemon ( 2016-06-23 22:13:54 -0500 )edit

Yes, because according to the maintainer's message, RPMFusion was just released this week. When was Fedora 23 released again? November 2015? So it took about 6-7 months. But don't worry, it won't take that long for F24. I think they are quite close, so maybe 6-7 more days....

As you can see on home page of RPMfusion, the repositories for alpha and beta are available:

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 and maybe has still some issues.

Actually, these are the testing repo for Fedora 24:

sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-24.noarch.rpm
sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-24.noarch.rpm

I tested today and are fully working. I also have edited the answer with the new working addresses.

Unfortunately, this does not work:

Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'rpmfusion-free-updates', disabling.

It's a repo issue. I updated answer with working addresses.

@cialu : why --nogpgcheck?

florian gravatar imageflorian ( 2016-05-17 08:57:51 -0500 )edit

@florian It's a standard procedure (skip checking GPG signatures on packages) to install Fusion repositories and you can find explanation on the Fusion website. I used this option from a long time, but now seems from Fedora 22 and above you can also install Fusion repositories without it. Up to you, I think.

cialu gravatar imagecialu ( 2016-05-17 10:53:58 -0500 )edit

always better to verify gpg key (meaning not using flag --nogpgcheck). currently, that doesn't seem to work though because of this bug here. More about it here
