Just a small few side notes on the  Betas:

  • All download sites ARE localized (aka if you’re in a non-English speaking country the /en/  will auto detect and change to suit
  • RPMFusion does not yet  track Fedora 24  (They had some  Infrastructure and setup issues with Koji but have plans to solid NLT  June 14th (Official GA release Day)
  • Fedora 24  uses updates-testing repo to maintain updates in the Beta / Pre-Release phase, so ensure  that your fedora-updates-testing.repo looks like below:

*** This needs to stay at  Enabled=1 thru GA release day,  dnf will auto disable when the time comes, if you wish to remain getting testing  stuffs at that point  open that file in your text editor of choice and  s/0/1     and save.

  • There is a un-official repo like RPMFusion that hosts pre-release versions of the codecs from rpmfusion,  can add it with:

# dnf config-manager --add-repo=https://gitlab.com/FedoraUnited/repository/raw/master/unitedrpms.repo

I've been a bit slammed lately  but plan to have the usual  checksums up by morning.
