Note that this will not work in your .profile.  If you wish to have a private 
copy of gEDA installed (say in $HOME/geda) you will need to follow the 
following steps (due to &£$^ing broken setgid programs in F7).

1) Edit /etc/X11/xinit/Xsession.  This is to work around ssh-agent trashing 
your environment (it's installed setgid).  See 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=164869 for a full 

   Add a line saying "SSH_AGENT=" before this line:

2) yum install module-init-tools.  This will help you work around terminal 
programs trashing your environment (they're installed setgid).  See my bug 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243069.  Apparently, 
this is *not* a bug.  I call bullshit.

3) Create $HOME/.modules/geda, containing:

#%Module 1.0
# -*- Tcl -*-
# Sets up Peter's opt directory

prepend-path    PATH            /home/peter/opt/bin
prepend-path    LD_LIBRARY_PATH /home/peter/opt/lib
prepend-path    INFOPATH        /home/peter/opt/share/info
prepend-path    PKG_CONFIG_PATH /home/peter/opt/lib/pkgconfig

4) Run /usr/share/Modules/bin/add.modules.  This will add some stuff to 
your .profile (or .bash_profile) and .bashrc.

5) echo module update >> .bashrc
   This will restore your environment when you launch an interactive terminal.  
You may actually want to put it before any aliases/functions you've defined 
in your .bashrc.

6) Edit .profile (or .bash_profile) and make sure it looks something like the 

# Environment modules support

if [ -f /etc/profile.modules ]
        . /etc/profile.modules

# put your own module loads here
module use $HOME/.modules
module load null geda

Finished.  Note that modules can be useful for other things, for instance 
running multiple versions of geda installed to different places.
