Post install ideas for Fedora 19


Fedora 19

Fast and easy home use setup guide:

I personally encourage people to use the Full DVD as it can cut down on network issues if you are in a non-standard DHCP wired/WiFi network.

Use either the torrent client:

http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/tor...64-DVD.torrent

or the direct download:

http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...x86_64-DVD.iso

Both of those links are for the full DVD, not the network installer or other options that are JUST as good if not better in their own way.

I am not going re-create the HOWTO install Fedora. There are plenty of great documents out there for that already. This is more of a post installation then anything else.

Once you have your brand new Fedora up and running there are a few things to keep in mind.

1. RedHat (the developers of Fedora Linux) does not include any potential licensed software or codecs for MP3 support of DVD playback as there can be a potential legal issue depending on were you live.
2. With that in mind you will need to install a few 3rd party repositories to download and install those codecs and applications.

The first item I am going to encourage every Fedora user to install is called easyLife. This is a great little “all-in-one” program. It will grab most of your codecs, it will install flash, java, fonts, and a bunch more all with a few clicks of the button. This is a MUST have for anyone who does not want to spend hours searching, downloading, installing, and attempting to configure things by hand.

http://easylifeproject.org/

*side note* As of Fedora 19 there is a new GUI front end tool for YUM (yellowdog updater modified). This is the package manager in RedHat/Fedora/SuSe and several other popular Linux distributions.

Open up the easyLife web page and click on the get latest now for Fedora 19. Let it do its thing and when prompted to “Install” do so. A few seconds later you will be prompted for the root password. Provide this and a few seconds later easyLife will be installed. Do not bother running it yet, we still have a few things left before we are ready for that.

Next point your browser to:

http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration/

You will see both the free and nonfree repositories. Click on them one at a time for Fedora 19. Follow the same steps as above for installing and configuring. Provide your root password when prompted.

Open a terminal window and su - over to root.

Code:
# yum -y update yum
Code:
# yum -y update
Once those are done, reboot as there will be a new kernel for you I am sure. Once you have rebooted fire up easyLife, enter your root password, it will be using YUM in the background thus the reason for root level password, and check the boxes you wish to install and away you go.

A good idea at this point is to open up some kind of odd media file (well odd from the original codecs for DVD playback and basic MP3 support) like a mkv or m4v file. I allow the default player to open for this as it will prompt you to FIND the proper codecs. Allow this then install them.

If you wish to install Google-chrome navigate to their web page, click the link to get the latest version and follow the same steps as above to install.

Enjoy your new fully media ready Fedora 19.

FYI, just as a side note World of Warcraft runs just as well in Wine as it does in Native MS Windows world. YOU will get an error the first time about video drivers being out of date, just ignore that.

To install wine type the following command as root:

Code:
# yum -y install wine
To install WoW, download the launcher from Blizzards site, you will need a valid account information to access this portion of their web page. Once you have the .exe downloaded open your terminal window and as USER, not root type the following:

Code:
$ wine /path/to/.exe
and enjoy the game.

i am the exact opposite

use a MINIMAL install , the very least you can
that fedora 19 dvd is already 35 days out of date
and a full install will need about a 3 gig update on the very first update
a almost 100% new os
and a near 100% switching out of software

fedora moves very fast
so after 30 days almost everything has been updated .

and a bit of a warning on WINE

If you run wine it CAN be infected by MS windows viruses !!!!!!!
run "ClamAV" daemon and single out ~./wine as a folder to scan
if you are using the QT front end to wine , include ~/Documents also in the AV scan

of fallow the yellow " Fedora Set-Up Guides " link on the top of every FedoraForum.org page and use the very first guide listed
http://www.fedoraforum.org/?view=fedora_setup
Mjmwired

and read the media section

true on both points, but keep in mind that if you are in a situation were you do not have a standard network, or have zero network connection, the full DVD will come in handy, thus my recommendation.

also as for wine infections, they will only infect the .wine directory and things inside, it can not infect your Linux box as the registry keys and .exe do not function outside of wine.

i am very mindful as to what i run inside of wine and only mentioned one specific game. if you are running the game you will not get infected. you can/will get infected if you are stupid enough to run a Wine web browser or you install a program via wine that is not a trust source. IE: installing MS Office works, will not cause a virus/malware/etc... in and of itself, but opening an infected .docx or some other document via MS Office can and will infect your WINE directories thus leading to a potential compromise of other Wine run programs.

I am on a slow internet connection where using yum is not a realistic option, so I make as much use of the installation DVD as possible, and choose a mirror close to me to download the rpms I need from the repositories. I then have the dependency issues that yum resolves, but I get by with patience and methodical use of rpm.

you can use yum to install rpm files now.

Code:
yum install foo.rpm
works much better then just
Code:
rpm -ivh *or* -Uvh foo.rpm
that way even with a slow internet connection the dependencies can still be resolved and you are not stuck in dependency hell.

I upgraded from F18 using this instructions:

try the --fix-broken or --skip-broken options as well as running via root instead of sudo. not sure if the root v sudo will make a difference, but it might you never know.

easylife is what replaced autoplus from the older Fedora's. I have not used Fedora Utils so I can not comment on that application. if you liked autoplus, you will enjoy easylife. same dev and works just as well.

It's the same developer? He's got Autoten for Fedora 19 on his site.

What's the difference between the two?

you can use yum to install rpm files now.
in relation to the slow dial-up internet connection which I had mentioned in #4.

Well, I wonder whether you have ever done that on dial-up lleb, because it sure does not work for me. yum was taking sooooo long compared to simply using wget to get the rpms, including the time to determine the dependencies and install. Not using yum on the internet was clearly the best option for me. It seems that yum is so concerned about creating databases and travelling through repositories and refreshing and powdering its nose, that, in my current low bandwidth environment, it's not my choice.

you do realize that apper can run in the background and download updates in the background

then when they are downloaded you can install them

however these days there is really NO operating system that can be keep up to date on a 56 k dial up line
Win7 -- no way
Fedora 19 -- no way ( fedora moves SO fast and changes so many programs the phone line will be ALWAYS in use )
RHEL6.4 ( this one you might be able to keep up to date on a 56k line

Hello John VV,

Yes, keeping right up to date on dial-up is not a real option given that there are so many megabytes of update almost daily. I was not familiar with apper, but I shall have a look. I do run a very lean non-standard fedora 19 system which means that many updates simply won't apply. For example I have no desktop environment, just a lean window manager, but thanks for your input.

sorry a little old, but john, VV, im seeing apper as a GUI front end for yum that works in KDE. is that correct? i personally do all of my yum updates via CLI as root, not through any kind of GUI front end and when the gnome-shell update manager barks at me, i close it out and manually perform yum update.

yeah as for keeping any modern OS up to date via 56k, good luck with that. thats a tall order.
