=== What is Fedora Extras ===

Fedora Extras are sets of packages that augment Fedora Core but do not replace Fedora Core component packages. These packages, like all packages that are part of The Fedora Project, must conform to the legal requirements of the project and conform to the Fedora Extras policies.

Fedora Extras is currently available for Fedora Core 3 and 4.

How to use Fedora Extras

Fedora Extras is best used via the yum utility, which will automatically fetch the packages, check the signatures, and install all necessary dependencies. Depending on the Fedora Core version you are using, you may have to manually enable the Extras repository on your system.

Simple example commands:

  • yum install packagename
  • yum install packagename.x86_64
  • yum remove packagename
  • yum list "*package*"
  • yum update

For more information, please see the manual page for yum (man yum).

Fedora Extras is already enabled on Fedora Core 4, and packages provided by the project are immediately available by running "yum install packagename."
