Abstract Summary

What can you customize in Fedora? How can you do that? What can you do to shape Fedora the way you need to? How can you make these things work for you?


Fedora is more then this set of discs that is released with a certain set of packages, but how do you make use of the extra abilities? Customization considers consideration spanning kickstart, package selection, making those appear in the group/package selection dialog, dependency resolving, installation automation for deployment, and other customizations.
