rpm.livna.org

Welcome to rpm.livna.org, a repository of add-on RPM packages for Fedora as well as RHEL (version 5 and later) and its compatible derivates like CentOS.

rpm.livna.org in the past provided many useful packages that those distributions rpm.livna.org supports did not want to ship for one reason or another. In 2008 rpm.livna.org merged with two other package repositories into RPM Fusion. All packages have been moved there except one that RPM Fusion for various reasons didn't want to take. Hence rpm.livna.org will remain running to ship just that package. rpm.livna.org is fully compatible with RPM Fusion and all other Fedora add-on repos that don't ship the package that rpm.livna.org ships.

(²) In case rpm.livna.org should be down use one of it's mirrors to get the package;

su -c "rpm -ivh http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm"
