This repository was created soon after MeeGo for Netbooks was released. For many reasons some popular software (codecs, players, etc...) can not be shipped with the distro or included to official repositories, so users had to build such software by themselfs and share it with each other. As soon as the number of user-built packages has significally grown, it was suggested to join the efforts and create a single community repository.
Before you can add the repository, you must have wget installed on your system (not installed by default). To install it, open a terminal window (Menu→Applications→System→Terminal) and execute the following from the terminal command line:
sudo zypper install wget
sudo yum install wget
depending on your installer of choice.
To add the repo to your system, open a terminal if you have not already and perform the following steps:
MeeGo 1.1 users
cd /etc/zypp/repos.d sudo wget http://mirror.yandex.ru/mirrors/meego-community/meego1.1/community.repo
MeeGo 1.0 users
cd /etc/zypp/repos.d sudo wget http://mirror.yandex.ru/mirrors/meego-community/meego1.0/community.repo
If you have yum package manager installed, you can also add the repo to yum:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d sudo wget http://mirror.yandex.ru/mirrors/meego-community/meego1.x/community.repo(Insert your MeeGo version number instead of 1.x)
Finally, unchek the option "Filters - Only native packages" in PackageKit (Menu→Applications→System→Add/Remove Applications). Now you are able to search and install the packages from the repo.
sudo zypper install ffmpeg faac faad2 gstreamer-ffmpeg gst-plugins-good gst-plugins-bad gst-plugins-uggly mpeg2dec libmatroska libdvdnav libdvdread lame x264
sudo zypper install totem mplayer-gui vlc
Use this thread to post a request for a packages that would be nice to have in the repository.
If you have built a package that you think would be useful for others, please send it to one of the maintainers. We will test your package and likely include it to repo. You are also welcome to became a maintainer and support your packages on regular basis. Please contact me if you want to became a maintainer.
