Fedora Installation Medium


Hello all

I have been searching for a howto to install FC2 through FTP or some different way, but I haven't found anything yet. So, if you have some links, I will be very thankful.

Thanks

If you want to upgrade over the 'net, you'll need to get the newest version of fedora-release and yum. If you've been keeping up with your yum updates, you should have the newest yum already in. What you'll need to do is grab a FC2 yum.conf.

Here's mine, it grabs from FC2 base, Fedora.us, FreshRPMs, and Macromedia (for flash player):
Code:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20

[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/

#[updates-testing]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/$releasever/$basearch/

#[development]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/

[fedora-us-2]
name=Fedora Core 2 -- Fedora US Mirror
baseurl=http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/i386/RPMS.os
[fedora-us-2-updates]
name=Fedora Core 2 updates -- Fedora US Mirror
baseurl=http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/i386/RPMS.updates
[fedora-us-2-stable]
name=Fedora Linux (stable) for Fedora Core 2 -- Fedora US Mirror
baseurl=http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/i386/RPMS.stable

[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Core 2 FreshRPMs
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms

[macromedia.mplug.org]
name=macromedia.mplug.org - Flash Plugin
baseurl=http://macromedia.mplug.org/apt/fedora/$releasever
  http://sluglug.ucsc.edu/macromedia/apt/fedora/$releasever
  http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/macromedia/apt/fedora/$releasever
  http://macromedia.rediris.es/apt/fedora/$releasever
#gpgcheck=1
Follow these instructions, as they helped me. They're a little more thorough, but there is no FC2 Yum.conf there.

I had problems initially with my mouse and sound. The mouse was a hardware issue (usb screwing up, I still have to mess around with that) and the sound was Alsa not loading on boot. If you can't get Alsa to work yourself, you can prolly find more information at its site.
