I am tying to do a full install of sugar-desktop as a standalone install
Used current F11 net install CD for install.
It is incomplete: I have to add xfce* and sugar-emulator to get it to run.
Why is it listed as a desktop if it will not do a working install?
Can the required files dependecies be changed to allow such an install?
I suspect it could but sugar is key to the OLPC folk
and they to not need an emulator etc. Thus they would
not quickly add a requirement that conflicts with their needs.
Having said that you might ask for a pseudo package
something like "sugar-on-fedora" or "sugar-without-olpc"
that installs some readme files in /usr/share/doc/sugar
I believe that the OLPC sugar desktop and its activity oriented
interface is "a good thing" and it would be valuable
as a school or home user interface for the non wizzard user
