Actually, I am learning about the parts of the whole and deciding whether
or not I want to use anything useful.  I have actually learned a lot about
what is available in F9, what "it" is used for, what I need and what I do
not need.  It turns out that one-self is pretty much left to solve the 
for one-selves when the going gets tough.

Clearly, there are some issues when installing "everything" and here, I 
it and found out where the conflicts are, what does not interoperate very
well, what to avoid, and probably some "bugs" seemingly noted in the logs.
Interesting thing here, is I have installed almost everything, except 
those which
conflicts with one another or has bugs in them.

Func/certmaster is new to me and I will certainly look into it's usefulness,
but not now, later.

Problems are fun, so as long as you can solve it.  The hardest one for 
me right
now is system-config-services which hangs itself for no apparent reason, no
error messages of any kind.  It is python code so I guess I will have to 
take a
deeper look into it.
