Helping Script for fresh instalations of Fedora Core 2


Please note that the following has only been tested on a full (everything) install.
If you get segmentation errors please do the following.
type rpm -e apt
run the script again (this is a bug in apt, not the script)

Hi, for those of you with a fresh (or not so fresh) install of Fedora core 2, I am providing a script file that will install the following packages (all from www.freshrpms.net).

apt - rpm package management
synaptic - Graphical package management program using apt
mplayer - the movie player for linux.
amule - Easy to use client for ED2k Peer-to-Peer Network
xmule - Easy to use client for ED2k Peer-to-Peer Network
cabextract - Program to extract Microsoft Cabinet files.
d4x - Downloader for X that supports resuming and many others.
rar+unrar
gnubay - Nintendo Gameboy Colour emulator.
xmame - The x Multi Arcade Machine Emulator.
armagetron - Multiplayer 'Tron' 3D racing game - online.

if you can think of anything else then please let me know.

please note that you must be loged in as root.
first copy the following into a text file and name it fresh_install
save it to /root
open a console
type chmod 777 fresh_install
type ./fresh_install

copy and paste after this line.
