Re: [K12OSN] Install packages from full Fedora 10

Thank you. I will have to go bum a fast internet connection someplace and download these various suggested software packages and try them out.  I will get back to this list in a few days and report my results.

You can download them. Most people do this online using a package
management utility like yum or the various PackageKit bits. You can
download the i386 RPM directly here:

Or the x86_64 RPM here:

They may have package dependencies that would also need to be
downloaded by hand if you insist on not using a package manager.

If you can install into Fedora 10 online, just:

yum install ltsp-server

and consult the install guide here:

No need to be belligerent here; people are trying to be helpful.

The Fedora 10 K12Linux is a Live CD, and download size was kept to a
minimum. It typical for Fedora to not include everything but have
various "spins" that include different sets of packages. Anything from
the Fedora 10 distribution can be added after the fact on a F10
K12Linux install using yum or the Add/Remove Software tool described
by others.

What is this "full package" you're looking for? Most distributions
don't include the full scope of available packages in their default
install due to space constraints on CD/DVD media.
