  1. Q: Where can I get software for Fedora? (Updated 25 July 2005)
    A: There are a few "repositories" (sites that hold software). The primary sites are the highly unofficial rpm.livna.org (for packages with licensing or USA patent problems) and the official Fedora Extras. They hold different software.

    For an alternate choice, look at RPMForge. There are some packages in RPMForge that aren't in Extras or livna.org. You can see the list of available packages on the "Mega-Merge" page.

    To search for software in all the major repositories, use the FedoraTracker search engine or rpm.pbone.net.
