    Missing things...


    I had a laptop that had fedora, I installed it from a cd, not the live one, just the linux, and it had everything I needed, but now, the laptop is dead, and I installed fedora on a desktop, this time, I installed it from a live cd, and it is missing alot of things: vi, nano, pico, gcc, open office etc... And I want all those and everything I had on my laptop,

    What I want to know is if there is a way to upgrade to the full package without having to reinstall everything else I installed manually? I really need these things and I don't want to go and install all these manually from the package manager or yum...

    TIA

    When you installed you could have chosen Custom Install which would allow you to chose which packages you want to install.

    After this point you have to use YUM to install the missing packages.
