Hi,  There  are a few Feora Spins that do something similar to what you are requesting.  May I suggest you search for Fedora Spins, and contact the individuals who created them.

Could someone please help me on this?

Thanks,
Ravindra

I forgot to mention, I also came across 'Comps' wiki page:

It appears that I should be modifying 'comps-f19.xml.in' on 'git.fedorahosted.org/git/comps.git'. Is that correct understanding?

Thanks,
Ravindra

Hi,

I work for VMware and I'm packaging open-vm-tools in Fedora.

I'm new to Anaconda. I would like to contribute a change to Anaconda, so that during OS install, open-vm-tools  is selected/installed by default on virtual machines hosted on VMware.

Could someone please help/guide me with making Anaconda changes for the requirement above? What files/functions should be modified? How to go about it (available mechanisms to perform virtualization check)? We have got two suggestions for this 'virt-what' and 'systemd'. I would really appreciate to see some examples of either approach and what is recommended for Anaconda. I'm looking for quick pointers, so that I can make the changes/test and submit the patch for review as soon as possible.

I would also like to know if one change (bugfix) would be sufficient for Fedora and RHEL, or do I need to make two separate Anaconda fixes for Fedora and RHEL.

I also got to know about this Red Hat bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=884385 ? If possible, could someone please grant me access to this bug?

FWIW, my target is to get these changes done in time for Fedora 19 and RHEL 7.

Thanks in advance,
Ravindra
