Configuring Package Repositories

The rpm-ostree utility uses repositories configured in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory.

To enable a specific repository, edit the configuration files in /etc/yum.repos.d and for each desired repository, change the enabled= line to enabled=1

You can add additional repository configuration files to enable third party or local package repositories.

Some repositories provide an RPM package to assist in the configuration. For example, to enable the RPM Fusion Free repository you can use:

$ sudo rpm-ostree install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

This method of configuration will require a reboot to enable the new image.

$ rpm-ostree status
