Attention: At the moment the Fedora repository is not set up.

Fedora is a community-driven GNU/Linux distribution supported by Red Hat that is mostly Free Software only with the exception of non-removed proprietary firmware blobs in Linux. The project defines its mission statement as to lead the advancement of free and open source software and content as a collaborative community and it consistently seeks to create, improve, and spread free/libre code and content in order to provide users with access to the latest free and open source software, in a stable, secure and easy to manage form. Popular Free Software projects like NetworkManager, PulseAudio, Plymouth and libvirt have their roots within Fedora, furthermore the distribution serves as some kind of breeding grounds for bleeding edge FS.

Fellowship Fedora Repository

Some Fellows provide a custom, 3rd party repository for Fedora RPM packages to enrich Fedora users with custom Free Software and content related to the Fellowship of FSFE.

In order to get access to the repository you may choose between one of two installation modes, graphical and command line interface based. Please take note that only Fedora 13 and upwards are supported.
In either case you'll be asked whether it's OK to import FSFE's Fellowship Fedora package key upon first-time installation of any subsequent Fellowship package. This is a one-timer and required to verify the authenticity of the packages.

Graphical Installation

Install the repository RPM by clicking on the given link. Your browser should prompt you whether to open or save the file, choose to open it using "Package Installer" (PackageKit). You will be prompted for confirmation and for the root password. PackageKit will complain about a missing security signature, this is OK and must be ignored, the required signature is part of the package itself.

Command Line Installation

Execute the following as root (e.g. with sudo ... or su -c "..."):
rpm -ivh http://fedora.fsfeurope.org/fedora/fsfe-fedora-release-stable.noarch.rpm
That's it!
