Easy Install of Drivers not included in Fedora

Severity: Blocker Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

We need the ability to install drivers that Fedora does not include.

It looks like we will need a network driver for the Computer Lab computers at the Gardener School so this is a blocker for the SoaS pilot.

For example the Broadcom chip set.

A bit more background... there will inevitably be drivers that are not shipped with Fedora. We should define a procedure for installing such drivers (perhaps on a master key that a teacher uses to replicate).

  • Component changed from sugar to SoaS
  • Owner changed from tomeu to sdz
  • Status changed from new to assigned

I'm guessing this is about SoaS as Sugar doesn't deal with any hardware at all (regardless of what some people say to the press).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

We're adhering Fedora's policy of shipping packages. People who need additional drivers are encouraged to install them or to create a customized spin. The latter one is documented here (but slightly out of date): http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_on_a_Stick/Customization
