The Setup Agent launches the first time that you start a new Fedora system. Use Setup Agent to configure the system for use before you log in.
Click on Forward button to start the Setup Agent.
License Agreement
This screen displays the overall licensing terms for Fedora. Each software package in Fedora is covered by its own license which has been approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI).
To proceed, select Yes, I agree to the License Agreement and click on Forward button.
Firewall Configuration
The firewall built into Fedora checks every incoming and outgoing network connection on your machine against a set of rules. These rules specify which types of connections are permitted and which are denied.
By default the firewall is enabled, with a simple set of rules that allow connections to be made from your system to others, but permit only network browsing and SSH (Secure SHell) connections from other systems. You may make changes on this screen to allow access to specific network services on your Fedora system.
To enable access to the services listed on this screen, click the check box next to the service name. If you want to disable the firewall. Select No firewall.
(To change these settings later, choose System–>Administration–> Security Level and Firewall).
Click on Forward to continue.
Security Enhance Linux(SELinux) configuration
The Security Enhanced Linux(SELinux) framework is part of Fedora. SELinux limits the actions of both users and programs by enforcing security policies throughout the operating system. Without SELinux, software bugs or configuration changes may render a system more vulnerable. The restrictions imposed by SELinux policies provide extra security against unauthorized access.
Inflexible SELinux policies might inhibit many normal activities on a Fedora system. For this reason, Fedora uses targeted policies, which only affect specific network services. These services cannot perform actions that are not part of their normal functions.
Set the SELinux mode to one of the following:
Enforcing
Select this mode to use the targeted SELinux policy on your Fedora system. This is the default mode for Fedora installations.
Permissive
In this mode, the system is configured with SELinux, but a breach of security policies only causes an error message to appear. No activities are actually prohibited when SELinux is installed in this mode. You may change the SELinux mode to Enforcing at any time after booting.
Disabled
If you choose this mode for SELinux, Fedora does not configure the access control system at all. To make SELinux active later, select System –>Administration –>Security Level and Firewall.
To adjust SELinux, choose Modify SELinux Policy. To exempt a key service from SELinux restrictions, select the service from the list, and choose the Disable SELinux protection option. The SELinux Service Protection item on the list includes options to disable SELinux restrictions on additional services.
Select the desired SELinux Setting and click on Forward button.
Set Date and Time
If your system does not have Internet access or a network time server, manually set the date and time for your system on this screen. Otherwise, use NTP (Network Time Protocol) servers to maintain the accuracy of the clock. NTP provides time synchronization service to computers on the same network.
Click on Forward button to continue.
Create Users
Create a user account for yourself with this screen. Always use this account to log in to your Fedora system, rather than using the root account.
Enter a user name and your full name, and then enter your chosen password. Type your password once more in the Confirm Password box to ensure that it is correct. To configure Fedora to use network services for authentication or user information, select Use Network Login…
Click on Forward button to continue.
Configure you Sound Card
Click the play button to check the sound card configuration. If the configuration is correct, Fedora plays a sound sequence. You may adjust the volume with the slidebar. The Repeat option causes the sound to play until the option is unselected, to assist you in tuning your system. If your sound card is identified, but you do not hear the sound, check your speakers and try again. In some cases, you may need to alter the additional settings to obtain the best sound quality.
A sound card may provide multiple audio input and output devices. To change the Default PCM device, select a new option from the drop-down list. By default, audio applications connect to a software mixer that manages the PCM devices. To enable applications to bypass the software mixer, select the option to Disable software mixing
Click on Finish button to complete the post install configuration.
