Re: bluetooth in default desktop install?



Yes, this maybe a good option. Detect and install... and not only in installation step, in desktop will be nice. I put an BlueTooth dongle and Fedora ask me if i want to install packages to use it. :)

Well... im dreaming... but will be nice.. :)

What about:
- Installed by default, but
- In a separate Anaconda/Pirut group so it can be easily de-selected
during installation?

(It would be oh-so-nice to have an "install these packages if the
hardware is present" capability to set an intelligent default for this
kind of thing).
