RPM Fusion on Fedora 22

Well on my dwelling upon Fedora, I noticed that it’s a very important part for an easy way to get some updates or restricted packages is to enable RPM Fusion repository.

Now, on the configuration page [here], it’s said that in order to have enabled on Fedora 14 and above versions, via CLI of course one needs to run the following command:

$ su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'

After that, I get this weird output:


Since yum was replaced I tried to use dnf, still unsuccessfully. Then I decided to try and give it a shot using this command line

sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-22.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-22.noarch.rpm

I have to say, that it worked flawlessly. And it’s probably a matter of time until the peepz from RPM Fusion correct this, hopefully. Until then, might as well give this a shot.

As always, if you have some valid and better input, please let me know. Sharing is caring!

    If you are more of GUI user (like me), you can simply click the links to the packages and let fedora figure out what to do – I found this much easier than finding/modifying commands.
