25. Fedora Extras

25.1. Using the Repository

Fedora Extras provides a repository of packages that complement Fedora Core. This volunteer-based community effort is part of the larger Fedora Project.

Fedora Extras are Available by Default

Fedora systems automatically use both the Fedora Core and Fedora Extras repositories to install and update software.
To install software from either the Core or Extras repositories, choose Applications > Add/Remove Software. Enter the root password when prompted. Select the software you require from the list, and choose Apply.
Alternatively, you may install software with the yum command-line utility. For example, this command automatically installs the abiword package, and all of the dependencies that are required:
su -c 'yum install abiword'
Enter the root password when prompted.
