Software I install to a base Linux system

Here is the entry for what I need to install after a clean Fedora install, (this will probably be edited a lot as I add to the list):

    Cool. I’ve been meaning to do this too.

    Would also like to see if there’s anything you *do* with each new system as well. Configurations such as with .bashrc and the like that you can’t live without?

      I typically don’t modify the system in any way other than install my .ssh/config file and bash scripts from my home git repository. They are all very specific to my network setup and anything “interesting” has already been posted here or on Gitorious.
