F 7 top 10 post-install packages

I bet there's a few Fedora developers out there reading... let's provide them with some data so they can install more useful packages by default

browsing through /var/log/yum.log I see the packages I first installed, from the Fedora repository:
  1. Thunderbird
  2. SCIM related packages (I type in Japanese, before learning how to set-up alternate language text entry correctly) scim-gtk
  3. nautilus-open-terminal
  4. grace (scientific plotting program)
  5. cmake, qt4, qt4-devel (so I can build the current version of Avogadro, chemistry viewing application)
  6. compat-gcc-34-g77 (g77, "probably" the most widely used fortran compiler on earth, according to the gfortran wiki)
  7. ... to be continued (___Your_entry_here___)


----------

A separate list, packages not in fedora repository. Kindly list which repo you got it from.
  • GL graphics, required for Desktop effects. For me kmod-nvidia (& dependencies) from livna
  • flash-plugin, (originally from macromedia.mplug.org flash.repo, now from adobe)
  • ... ? maybe mplayer, dunno yet.. (___Your_entry_here___)

PS I searched, but couldn't find an analogous thread already

Thunderbird should definitely be on the install DVD, which was only about 2/3 full in F7 (and significantly smaller than that for FC6), though I understand if they choose not to install it by default. BTW, macromedia.mplug.org is closing down and flash-plugin now comes directly from Adobe - here's the repo config RPM:

Midnight Commander should be on every Linux distro by default, and also on the rescue CD as well :-)

Thanks for pointing that out. The adobe repo was installed (and enabled) when I grabbed the version at mplug.org ... I'll edit the OP
