Description Kalev Lember 2016-06-07 15:34:35 UTC
We're now shipping /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-cisco-openh264.repo in the default install. It has enabled=0, enabled_metadata=1 which should make PackageKit download the metadata and offer to enable the repository when the user wants to install something from there.

However, this is currently broken for the openh264 gstreamer codec from that repo.

I've debugged this and it needed a one line fix on the PackageKit side and a bunch of UI fixes on gnome-software side. The PackageKit side fix basically makes things work while the gnome-software side had a bunch of UI annoyances that I think are OK to fix in a subsequent update.

I'd like to propose this as a Freeze Exception as openh264 codec installation is something that will likely be talked about quite a bit after F24 release and it would be nice to have this working out of box on the Workstation live media.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2016-06-08 21:58:18 UTC
Seems reasonable if the fix is small. 1.1.1-2 is currently tagged f24 so it looks like the update indeed only changes this. +1 FE

Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2016-06-09 17:22:03 UTC
+1 FE here.

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2016-06-10 06:12:34 UTC
This got several more +1s during the go/no-go meeting today, so marking as Accepted.
