And if you want packages from Freshrpms.

Go to:  http://moonshine.freshrpms.net

Next, click on "apt, yum, and others" (just below the logo)

There's no entry for F7, but click on the Fedora Core 6 one, as the layout of 
the URL's in /etc/yum.repos.d is such that your version of Fedora is checked 
in /etc/fedora-release, then the correct repo is accessed for your Fedora 

Ok. Having clicked on Fedora Core 6. On the next page click on the 
"freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm" line.  If you're using Firefox a box 
will open asking what to do with the download. Click on install it. You'll be 
asked for your root password, then the package installer will open. Ok it and 
the package will be installed.

Look in /etc/yum.repos.d, and you will have a new file for freshrpms. open it, 
and it should look like this.

# $Id: freshrpms.repo 3341 2005-06-28 18:40:26Z thias $
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Freshrpms

Ok. Close the editor, and firefox. Open a terminal, su to root, and do a yum 
install vlc . This will pull in a bunch of dependencies, (about 11).  Also do 
a yum install livdvdcss  if you need to play DVD's that need to be decrypted 
so as to play them.

Happy viewing.


btw. Keep in mind that some 3rd party repos don't always work well with one 
another, and it might be best not to have both Livna, and Freshrpms enabled.
