I have completed my first review of Fedora 17. You can see the review at Fedora 17—Power Desktop and Choice for Parents.


I have released version 2.0-14.0.0 of Fedora Frog.

This interactive, text mode, menu-driven Bash program provides the Linux administrator an easy way to install applications not installed by default during a Fedora Core installation procedure, and applications that are not part of the standard distribution. Additional repositories are required beyond the normal Fedora ones, and they are automatically added by Fedora Frog as well.

Frog installs media players such as RealPlayer, Mplayer, VLC, Kaffiene and Xine. It also installs Thunderbird, Firefox, GNUCash, Adobe Reader and Yumex, and some things specifically for System Admins such as chkrootkit, iotop and more.

Fedora Frog currently supports Fedora 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14. Support for all previous versions of Fedora has been removed.

New features in this release include:

  • Added support for Oracle VirtualBox-4.0 with extensions and keep support for VirtualBox 3.2 which is still available.
    Set this up for selection in a new Radio Button menu due to choice complexities.
  • Added the screen program.
  • Added support for Fedora 13 and 14.
  • Resolved minor issues with VirtualBox.
  • Added nVidia PAE support.
  • Added more Admin programs such as ntop, powertop, iptraf, etc.

Fedora Frog is distributed under the GPL2 license. Fedora Frog can be downloaded from SourceForge at https://sourceforge.net/projects/fedorafrog/.


If you are waiting for the next version of Fedora Frog I am testing the latest code right now. It should be ready in a few days.

This version of Fedora frog will support Fedora 10 through 14.
