I installed at fedora snmpd package...

> view    systemview    included  
> . view    systemview   
> included   . view   
> all          included   .1 80
> ####

> any       noauth    exact  systemview
> none none access  notConfigGroup ""   
> any       noauth    exact  all  none
> none

I could get only system information.... using snmpwalk or whatever..

I tried adding RFC 1213 snmp node with no luck....
What am i doing wrong?

The default fedora config is designed to only let you see the system group for security purposes. You need to replace the config with a better set that lets you access everything on the device. Running snmpconf -g basic_setup can help you with getting started. Or, you can replace the file with the following snippet (based on the above, I believe you aren't using SNMPv3 and only using the insecure SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c, so this is designed for that):

rocommunity ChoseACommunity

Make sure you set ChooseACommunity to something uniquely yours.
