I just stumbled over easyUbuntu [1] and got a idea to add some kind of 
installation Wizard in yumex, to make it easy to add all the
extra stuff need to get your fedora running.

   * Nvidia drivers.
   * ATI Drivers
   * NTFS support.
   * MP3 support.
   * Movie player with codecs. (Mplayer, gstreamer etc).
   * Java
   * Flash

I want to make some kind of XML format to creating the Wizard entries 
and the actions behind. The different people can make there own wizards  
and people can just drag and drop an URL to a  wizard XML into yumex to 
add the wizard entries to the installation wizard. This could be a way 
to close the gap between a FOSS distribution and the non free or patent 
related stuff, there never can be included in Fedora.
Let me now what you think, is it a totally lame idea or is it a way to go.

It's a nice idea, but...


I just want to code a easy way to install things, not try to break any patent, i will not include anything illegal into yumex, but people located i place where software patents don't exist, can make a wizard plugin to install the stuff hosted in places like livna or freshrpms.
I same way as yum and rpm can be used to installed patent releated stuff, but it is not the purpose of the application.
