rpmfusion.

Unfortunately, as I explained, I "went on the net to find it. (Wrong move,
I know!) Which got me direct to rmpfind." The key was asked for
installation, only then did I receive the message saying that the said
packages were already installed.

Don't say "Silly you!". I already said "%%$# #$ silly me!". Just tell me
how to find which key/repositories are signed to provide updates on my
system. I'll check and remove any reference to rpmfind.
