One point in package installation which will be a really mess for a newbie
is our actual used package manager.

I think Ubuntu is going the right way with it's Software Center and i'm
thinking of adopting it for mageia (Maybe we are allowed to use it, don't
know under which license the Ubuntu Software Center is, and it will need
some rewriting for rpm support i think).

But it would be a good starting point with the task-multimedia i think.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
