Hi,

I proposed some features for Fedora. They might not be accepted, but
it's worth a try.

* http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JakubRusinek/DRAFT%3A1clickInstall

I have made a little app doing the same stuff.

bzr branch http://timlau.fedorapeople.org/bzr/easyinst
cd easyinst

sudo ./easyinst.py app.ini

it is using an ini file instead of xml looking like this

[livna]
type=repository
method=rpm
url=http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm

[gstreamer-plugins]
type=addons
name=Gstreamer plugins to play MP3,Xvid etc.
desc=Gstreamer plugins to play MP3,Xvid etc.
method=yum
repo=livna
packages=gstreamer-plugins-bad,gstreamer-plugins-ugly


[nvidia]
type=drivers
name=Nvidia Drivers
desc=Nvidia Closed Source Driver with 3D support.
method=yum
repo=livna
packages=kmod-nvidia

[yumex]
type=application
name=Yum Extender
desc=A GUI for the yum package manager
method=yum


It is very easy in development, but it works.

you rock :) .

but instead of using s-i-packages for the packages, we can run "yum install xxx" of "pirut --install xxx", if pirut has this feature (I wanted pirut to have --install, --update and --remove).

bravissimo :) .



I am not using s-i-p, the tool was made to test some gui stuff and the yum api. It is not meant to be some you click on a link on a web page and then you get the "crazy cracker repo" added to your setup and the latest rootkit installed without any questions asked, if you want this kind of features you have to install Windows :)

The idea was to have a way to give the user access to a featured list application, to be installed/removed in an easy way.

Ex.
The Game SIG could maintain an ini files with featured Game in Fedora, to make it easy for the users to install/remove these games.
