Fedora has a very strict software policy, allowing only [[Licensing#Free_and_open-source_software|free software]] emulators, which don't rely on copyrighted BIOS files to work. There's quite a few emulators and even [[RetroArch]] with some open source cores, but you won't find any non-commercial or closed-source emulators in there. However, more of them are hosted at RPMFusion's repositories. To install RPMFusion's software repositories, use the following command as root:

Fedora has a very strict software policy, allowing for only few emulators in the main repository, such as [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/mednafen Mednafen] and [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/dosbox Dosbox]. However, more of them are hosted at RPMFusion's repositories. To install RPMFusion's software repositories, use the following command as root:
 
  <nowiki>sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm</nowiki>
 
  <nowiki>sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm</nowiki>
  
The second RPM is where you get proper video drivers for older AMD cards. Install "akmod-catalyst" (current AMD cards use the official "AMDGPU" driver built into kernel, so everything should work OOTB). NVIDIA users should instead use [https://negativo17.org/nvidia-driver/ negativeo17's nvidia repositories] or, if you're comfortable with manually updating your drivers, following [https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/ this guide]. The following emulators can be found from the RPMFusion repositories (note that not all packages are fully up-to-date):

==Emulators from Flatpak==
 
 
Alternatively, you can use newer method known as Flatpak to install emulators. Flatpak is a default method of installing software in some Fedora editions, mainly Fedora Silverblue, but works very well with pretty much every Fedora edition. There's quite a lot of emulators in Flathub, the de facto Flatpak repository. Refer to [[Distro-agnostic_emulator_packages_for_Linux#Flatpak|this article]] for details.
