What is the best description of the packages that can be installed from a net install based of the dvd. I want to make a pure Fedora 17 KDE with calligra like it so much on windows figured I'd switch to KDE.

I want to get a good understanding of all the packages and the naming system. Google only brings up Arch and Suse. Both are pretty good, but I thought a fedora one would be better.

If you have a better place for me to search for answers on fedora, that would be appreciated as well. These Q&A's are good for documenting what the people need as far as guidance, but it means I have to wait for an answer that I know exists somewhere and if it wasn't for the babble of MS, Google, and Amazon; I'd be able to find it.

Thanks so much for being there.

Fedora has spins. Spins are versions of Fedora tailored to some features that users are interested in having.

One of the spins is Fedora kde. Install Fedora kde, follow by any updates, using sudo yum update.

Then add calligra . Google fedora spins or visit
