My installation notes & tips (long)


Here's my Fedora installation notes & log, I thought I'd post it since I've solved & documented a bunch of random things. (Many thanks to this forum, too!) BTW, I'm getting rid of my laptop, I'm using my desktop system full time now.

Partitioning the hard drive (laptop):
[root@localhost root]# fdisk -l /dev/hda

Disk /dev/hda: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 1950 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 1084 8195008+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 1085 1091 52920 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 1092 1701 4611600 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 1702 1950 1882440 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5 1702 1770 521608+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 1771 1950 1360768+ b Win95 FAT32

First, boot from the Windows XP Install CD, create a single partition, and install Windows to completion. Next, boot from the Fedora CDs, complete the partitioning and installation. Write GRUB to the MBR, and select which OS you want to boot by default.

Disable the most annoying screensaver ever:
Start Here -> Preferences -> Screensaver
Uncheck the "Greynetic" ScreenSaver

Configuring my HP LaserJet 2100TN Printer:
Click on the “Print Manager” Icon.
It responds with “No printers found. Run the printer configuration tool?” Click OK.
Enter the root password. Program runs redhat-config-printer.
Click on “New”
Add a new Queue, Click on Forward.
Give the new queue a shortname and description
Select Queue-Type: Networked JetDirect; Printer: 192.168.168.5; click Forward.
Select HP, LaserJet 2100M (M is for Macintosh, but that's the Postscript version.) click Forward.
Print a Test Page. Click “yes” if it looks okay!

Configuring a package manager, apt-get

Tested apt-get, and got an updated list of packages:
[root@localhost rpms]# apt-get update

Finally, add Synaptic as a GUI front-end to apt:
[root@localhost rpms]# apt-get install synaptic

Fedora -> System Settings -> More System Settings -> Synaptic Package Manager

Configuring Up2Date:
Changed these lines in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources
#[Ed]: Commented out the next three lines
#yum fedora-core-1 http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1
#yum updates-released http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/released/fedora-core-1

yum fedora-us-updates-1 http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/...86/yum/updates
yum fedora-us-stable-1 http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/...386/yum/stable

Now, the RHN Alert appeared in the lower corner of my toolbar. Interestingly, when I double-clicked on it, it said that I required registration with RHN. But, I thought I didn't need this with Fedora. Anyways, I hit “cancel” on the RHN registration, and proceeded with “Launch Up2Date”. Looks like a bug in “RHN Network Alert Notification Tool 2.1.2”. It updated several packages, and now the red exclamation point is back to a blue check mark.

Here's another set of package management configuration files:
http://www.xades.com/proj/fedora_repos.html
http://fedora.artoo.net/faq/#InstallSoftware

I got an error when RHN wanted to update XMMS to 1.2.10, I had the 1.2.8 mp3 plugin installed from rpm.livna.org. Rather than add livna to my Up2Date sources, I added my local directory of RPMS to /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources:
dir Eds-downloaded-RPMs /home/ed/rpms
I downloaded the appropriate mp3 xmms file, and now up2date doesn't report an RPM conflict.

On another system, I updated the yum.conf file with the one listed in artoo.net, and ran a “yum check-updates” and “yum update” right after a fresh install.

Fixing random rpm errors:
I got this error while searching for rpm packages using rpm -qa | grep packagename:
error: rpmdbNextIterator: skipping h# 756 Header V3 DSA signature: BAD, key ID e42d547b
[root@localhost root]# mv /var/lib/rpm/Pubkeys /tmp/
[root@localhost root]# rpm –rebuilddb
Seems to be fixed, but I'm not quite sure what happened.

Installing Java Support in Mozilla:
Downloaded the rpm file for linux from www.java.com
[root@localhost rpms]# ls j2r*
j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586-rpm.bin
[root@localhost rpms]# chmod a+x j2re*
[root@localhost rpms]# ./j2re*
agree to the license terms.
[root@localhost rpms]# ls j2r*
j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.rpm j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586-rpm.bin
[root@localhost rpms]# rpm -Uvh j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.rpm
[root@localhost rpms]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_03/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
It works!

Installing Flash Support in Mozilla:
Downloaded the rpm file for linux from http://sluglug.ucsc.edu/macromedia/site_ucsc.html
This was a rpm listed in LinuxQuestions.com
[root@localhost rpms]# rpm -Uvh flash*
error: Failed dependencies:

Installing Evolution mailto: Support in Mozilla:
I found a program called “mozex” that intercepts the “mailto” and other functions, and allows you to redirect that to a different application. I downloaded mozex from:
http://mozex.mozdev.org/
Follwed the “install” directions, and blasted past some warning about installing as as user or as the superuser. Mozex appeared in the Mozilla preferences, and I checked “mailto” and as per the mozex FAQ, wrote the following line for mailto:
evolution mailto:%A?Subject=%S&Cc=%C&body=%B
Now when you click on a “maito:” link, instead of opening up Mozilla Mail (which I don't use), it launches Evolution, and pre-fills a new email message.

Adding touchpad support back to X (laptop):
I booted to Knoppix, and copied the XF86Config file from there and stole the relevant parts. Fedora didn't automatically configure both mice, I had the USB mouse plugged in when I did the installation. These changes were added to /etc/X11/XF86Config. There's still the little pad just below the touchpad, I'm not sure what it does.
Section "ServerLayout"
#[Ed]: Added the next line to support the touchpad
InputDevice "PS/2 Mouse" "CorePointer"
Later on in the file, around where the other mouses are defined.
#[Ed]: Added the next whole section to support the touchpad

EndSection

Changing the minimum font size in Mozilla:
Edit -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Fonts, Minimum Font Size = 12

Moving my Mozilla profile to a new computer:
Read through the Mozilla FAQ on backup/restore:
http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/faq/profile.html
I copied all the files from /home/ed/.mozilla/default/RANDOMNUMBER.slt/
except those listed in the FAQ: xul.mfl, xul.mfasl, or XUL FastLoad File, localstore.rdf, chrome/*.jar (custom theme files).
I went to my the profile on the new computer:
/home/ed/.mozilla/default/ANOTHERRANDOMNUMBER.slt/
and copied all the files in here.

Eliminating the annoying login beep:
[root@localhost rpms]# head -7 /etc/X11/gdm/Init/:0
#!/bin/sh
# Xsetup for Red Hat Linux
# Copyright (c) 1999, 2000, 2001 Red Hat, Inc.

#[Ed] Added the next single line to eliminate the annoying login beep
# I got this tip from the LinuxQuestions.com Fedora forum.
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset -b

Changing the login screen:
Go to “Start Here” -> “System Settings” -> “Login Screen”, enter root's password
Go to the “Graphical Greeter” tab, and change to “Happy GNOME with Browser”
Go to “Start Here” -> “Preferences” -> “Login Photo”
I scaled down my background image in The Gimp to 320x240 and selected it.

nVidia drivers fail to load GLX (desktop):
I installed the nVidia drivers as per lots of instructions available, but it still wouldn't successfully load the GLX drivers, I couldn't run “glxgears” for example.
X was trying to load and run the following file:
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so
For some reason that's still unclear to me, this was the wrong file for it to try to load.
The correct GLX file is located at:
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
And, its just a link to libglx.so.1.0.5336 in the same directory.
I renamed the first file:
#>mv libglx.so moved.libglx.so
Now the system loads the correct file, and I can run glxgears, a few screensavers, and tuxracer!
I have a 32MB SDR GeForce256 Card, an Elsa Erazor X, and with glxgears I'm getting around 910 FPS.

Poweroff on shutdown (laptop):
It seems my BIOS is on the ACPI blacklist, so I'll likely need to wait to get Kernel 2.6 installed to make headway there. Until then, I want to add-back “Real Mode Power Off” in Kernel 2.4.
#> cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
#> make mrproper
#> cp configs/kernel-2.4.22-i686.config ../.config
#> make xconfig (or menuconfig if X isn't running)
Find the apm section and add “Real Mode Power Off” back in. Added APM as a module. Changed the EXTRAVERSION to “1700Laptop”.
#> make dep; make bzImage; make modules; make modules_install; make install

I got an error when compiling:
kernel/kernel.o(.text+0xfc3): In function `schedule':
: undefined reference to `active_load_balance'
This note seems to say its a bad config in the early Fedora kernels:
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedor.../msg03952.html
I guess I'll update the kernel and try again, but I'll need to get the updated NTFS rpms then, too. As it turns out, the NTFS read RPMs won't work with a custom kernel, even one built off 2166. So, I enabled NTFS read in xconfig, and rebuilt.
The computer didn't shut-down with “apm real mode poweroff”, I'm not sure if that's because I didn't enable it at boot, load the module, or it just doesn't work.
However, I did comment out my Compaq 1700 in drivers/acpi/blacklist.c and recompile, so we'll see how much ACPI I can use!

Mounting the FAT32 Partition:
I created a FAT32 partition on /dev/hda6 so XP & Linux can write to a common area.
[root@localhost mnt]# mkdir /mnt/common
[root@localhost mnt]# chmod ugo+rwx common
Added the following lines to /etc/fstab:
#[Ed] Automatically mount my FAT32 partition
/dev/hda6 /mnt/common vfat rw,users,umask=0 0 0
[root@localhost mnt]# mount -a
If I need to unmount this partition, its still the same problem as the cdrom eject problem:
[root@localhost mnt]# service xinetd restart
[root@localhost mnt]# umount /mnt/common
I added a link in my home directory to quickly navigate to this partition
[ed@localhost ed]$ ln -s /mnt/common "Shortcut to Common"

Reading the NTFS Partition:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/instructions.html
Download the file from the above link:
[root@localhost rpms]# ls k*
kernel-ntfs-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.i686.rpm
[root@localhost rpms]# rpm -Uvh kernel-ntfs*
[root@localhost rpms]# /sbin/modprobe ntfs
[root@localhost rpms]# mkdir /mnt/windows
[root@localhost rpms]# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o umask=0222
[root@localhost rpms]# tail -2 /etc/fstab
#[Ed] Added the following line to automatically mount the NTFS partition
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
[ed@localhost My Documents]$ ln -s "/mnt/windows/Documents and Settings/Ed/My Documents" "/home/ed/Shortcut to My Documents"

I updated my kernel to rev 2166, and had to download the corresponding rpm as above. I removed the old 2115 rpm, rebooted my system, then installed the 2166 rpm. A quick “mount -a” brought the NTFS partition back online!
On my Via C3 system, I had to add “--noscripts” to install the i586 rpm, and then do an “insmod ntfs” to get it to work.

Installing a custom background image:
Copy the image to somewhere in the /home/username directory
Right click on the desktop.
Select “Change Desktop Background”
Select the image.

Getting the TVOut to work (laptop):
Fired up Synaptic, and found “atitvout” under “Applications/Multimedia”
Installed version 0:0.4-0.fdr.2.1
Doesn't seem to work, but I found some info here to read up on:
http://gatos.sourceforge.net/overview.php

Installing Rhythmbox:
I found this discussion on LinuxQuestions.org:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=159469
I uncommented FreshRPMs from /etc/yum.conf.
Well, after a few uses, Rhythmbox crashes and won't run. C'est la vie.

Mounting my local Samba fileserver:
[root@localhost rpms]# mkdir /mnt/nd560
[root@localhost mnt]# chmod go+w nd560
[root@localhost mnt]# mount -t smbfs -o dmask=777,fmask=777 //192.168.168.4/nd560 /mnt/nd560
I don't know which machine is asking for a password.
I added this line to /etc/fstab to mount the share on boot.
#[Ed] Added the following line to automatically mount my SMB Share
//192.168.168.4/nd560 /mnt/nd560 smbfs users,guest,dmask=777,fmask=777 0 0
Typing the next line will mount any shares in fstab that aren't already mounted.
[root@localhost root]# mount -a
[root@localhost root]#
This just makes navigating to the fileserver easier on the open/save dialog boxes.
[ed@localhost ed]$ ln -s /mnt/nd560 "Shortcut to ND560"

Working with images from my Digital Camera:
My Olympus Stylus 300 is not yet supported by gtkam, or gphoto2. I suppose I could mount the usb device and process images from there, but what fun is that?
[ed@localhost ed]$ rpm -qa | grep gphoto
gphoto2-2.1.3-1
#> mkdir /mnt/camera
#> mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
#> mv /mnt/camera/dcim/100olym/* /home/ed/newpics
#> umount /mnt/camera
$> mogrify -geometry 640x480 *.jpg
$> ~/mvb_1.5.8/mvb geo_pics
I found a cool bash script for batch renaming files over here:
http://www.xscd.com/pub/mvb/

Installing WINE and running PCCoach:
PCCoach is a Windows application that I need to use. There is no Linux equivalent.
[ed@localhost ed]$ rpm -qa | grep wine
wine-20040213-1fc1winehq
Insert the CD & double-click on Setup.exe
InstallShield hangs, ikernel.exe
Downloaded DCOM98.EXE from microsoft.com, and ran this cryptic command:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32=n" wine /home/ed/dcom98.exe
It crashed, but the installshield went further, and eventually crashed.
PCCoach starts to run, but crashes.

Migrating data off my XP machine:
Exported bookmarks from IE6, and imported into Mozilla.
Moving Outlook mail was a PITA:
Install Mozilla
Import mail from Outlook
Dig around in the XP “documents and settings”/User/Application Data folder to find each file.
In Evolution, import data folder by folder.
Tips: Compact data in Outlook or Mozilla to clean out old/deleted emails.
Minimize the number of folders—have to do it for each folder.
Copied all my data from “My Documents” (I was good about keeping it all there!)
Recursively delete all the “Thumbs.db” files from all my XP Picture folders:
[ed@localhost ed]$ find . -name "Thumbs.db" -print -exec rm {} \;
Rescued data from PCCoach—which won't store in “My Documents”

Mounting my USB Pen Drive:
I want to get it to automount, it still doesn't do that.
Noatime—minimizes the number of write cycles.
Noauto—requires the device to be explitely mounted, mount -a won't mount it.
User—allows a user to mount the device.
[root@localhost mnt]# mkdir usbpen
[root@localhost mnt]# chmod go+w usbpen
[root@localhost etc]# mount -t vfat -o noatime /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbpen

Here's an interesting thread that's related:

Installing X-CD-Roast:
Installed version 0.98a14 from Synaptic.
[root@localhost root]# mkdir /tmp/xcdroast
[root@localhost root]# chmod go+w /tmp/xcdroast
Configured the default image directory to /tmp/xcdroast
I headed over to www.XCDRoast.org and got the lastest version, 0.98a15.
Activated non-root mode after running the app as root, did a little configuration, and it seems to be working.

Additional Software to install:
Install RipperX and get CD Ripping working

Can't eject CDROM after using Nautilus:
Seems to be a known bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=106936
workaround:
#> service xinetd restart

Outstanding Configuration Issues:
Both systems:
Configure the USB Pen Drive so it automounts.
Wait for gPhoto to support my Olympus Stylus 300
Successfully install Wine for PCCoach

Whats the problem with your USB Pen drive? I have one, and it seem's to automount fine.

Code:
[kristijan@neo sessions]$ cat /etc/fstab

boot. iso image

Do you happen to know where I can get the boot.iso image? The install notes refer to this file, however I can't seem to find it and when I downloaded and burned the other iso images for the installation disks none of them turned out to be bootable. Any help would be appreciated.

newtolinux72 - since you have asked this question in your own thread, it's rude to hijack someone elase's thread with the same question. Your own thread is getting responses, so there is no need to ask it here.
