I'm running an AMD 3800+ on an Asus A8N-VM CSM MB and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations regarding Xen vs. WMWare? I have 3 must-have WIN2000 apps. Also, I'm a beginner with Linux with only a limited grasp of the CLI.
I've done a basic install of FC6. Would there be any extra libraries or files that I need before I start?
Which version do I use when I have FC6? How do I download it with yum? Is the VMware Server possible on a system with my specification? Also I did a full install on FC6 originally. I did remove Xen. How do I check for the prequisites mentioned earlier?
If you run the following, you will see "Development Tools" in the Installed Groups section. For example:
# yum grouplist
Engineering and Scientific
GNOME Software Development
Base for rpm.livna.org RPM-Repository
X Software Development
DNS Name Server
Authoring and Publishing
Games and Entertainment
Legacy Software Development
X Window System
KDE (K Desktop Environment)
Server Configuration Tools
Sound and Video
XFCE Software Development
Legacy Network Server
GNOME Desktop Environment
Windows File Server
KDE Software Development
Personally, I don't see any particular benefit to Fedora 7 over FC6. I was going to skip it and go to Fedora 8, released in November, though I'd wait until January for it to stabilize. After Fedora 8 is released, support for FC6 will be dropped. How you want to deal with that is up to your particular situation.
