Re: easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

I installed F17 and used easyLyfe to install flash, fonts and Nvidia driver.
Everything went well , but I had to manually remove Nouveau from initramfs from the terminal ...
Anyway, a very good job ...
When I boot the computer I see the Fedora logo, not the normal advancing bar I saw in the previous version (which indicates that the Nvidia driver is loading): is this normal? The lsmod and dmesg commands indicate that the Nvidia driver is loaded and nouveau isn't. Moreover I normally run Nvidia- settings ... Also xorg.conf indicates that the Nvidia driver is running ...

easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

It would be nice to have a list of the packages that each checkbox installs if this is practicable.
Being aware a lot of people turn off Selinux i tried the SelinuxOff but there seems no obvious benefits on my system
so i am now a bit stuck trying to guess which packages to remove by looking at /var/log/yum.log ?

Running easyLife in a terminal outputs plenty of information on what it does/changes. Thus, you can re-run 'easyLife', select 'Disable selinux' and see which files easyLife modifies. (Recommended) Alternately, you can install 'policycoreutils-gui', and re-enable SELinux from there. Make sure the "Relabel on next reboot" box is checked. Good luck!

easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

Rerunning easylife gets little more than Selinux is in permissive mode now.
Re-enabling Selinux through policycoreutils-gui gets the banner :
Select the policy type for the application or user role you want to confine
I see why you mentioned luck pilotferdi !

You can check what packages eL install by looking in the sources:

Re: easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

Duli, any estimate on when you will have easyLife updated for Fedora 18?

I know there are some changes, like using gstreamer1 packages, but not certain of all the changes needed.

Hello:

If can get through the install process, then I'll start work on the changes. I don't know what's going wrong with F18's anaconda...

Re: easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

I don't think anybody knows what's going on with F18's anaconda

What issues are you running in to?

It gets reduced to a small window and it hides the button you should hit in order to configure the root password. Also, it is not asking me to insert the regular user's name and password. Then, after a reboot, I can't login, unless I go to a terminal and create the regular user... I'm doing it in a VM box. I don't know if the same results occur in a normal computer.

Just realized it does not happen if you select English for install process. I was trying with Portuguese (Brazil) and things didn't go so well. There's a bug there.

Re: easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

That's a problem I haven't seen before, or heard of anyone else having it.

Thanks for sharing this, it roundly answers my question. Zero packages.

Re: easyLife - Automated installs and configurations on Fedora!

Duli, yes it's a bug. I tripped on it when I tried to change my keyboard to Dvorak also. The change doesn't take effect until you sacrifice a chicken, dance in a circle and say the magic words, but there's no way to know that the language or the keyboard settings have not taken effect until you discover that you can't logon to root.

The best response to this (so far) seems to be to say "Bah!" loudly, and take the default language settings for logging in. You can change the language and the layout once you're on the desktop, but it sure makes handling the password awkward, especially if you use more that 12 characters with numbers and national symbols in them, as you should.

Do you anticipate a version of Easy Life for F18 soon, please? I could use it.
