I have installed Fedora Core 3 last week and even though I still have some issues, here is what I've learned and it might help others.
[list=1][*]Have a PIII computer with a 20GB HDD and Installed windows XP Pro.[*]I decided to set up a second hard d. drive, to avoid confussions. when installing and running.[*]Downloaded all the iso files (CD Images) from the Fedora
Site.[*]Downloaded ISO Recorder Power Toy By Alex Feinman
an utility to burn CD Images Using Windows XP.[*]Having all the discs ready 4 and a Rescue Disc. proceded with the instalation.[*]No Bumps, so far, straight forward instalation -Selected Workstation Option.[*]All Devices, Cards, Monitor, and etc. detected. no troubles, even my USB 256MB Drive.[*]Found a site MadPenguin.org How TOs
with instructions to Read my Windows HDD. This Site has also instructions to configure Apache, PHP, My SQL, and other stuff such as multimedia.[*]Updates have been running smoothly.[/list=1]
But I still have issues...
The intention is to setup a site for developing Mambo Server
Templates, Components, and extras.[list=1][*]I still can't run MySQL. The conection is dead after I start the service; Here are the details:
When I go: mysql -u root; here is what it says.
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
I went to look for Documentation or Help and found that this error message means that the My SQL database Server service was not running, hence, I went to start it, and I got:
mysqld dead but subsys locked
I haven't found any solution Yet.[*] I tried to install Thunderbird Mail Manager, Got the file, Ran the installation, but I still don't know how to run it, since the program wasn't added to the applications menu, where all the files went and how to set it as the default Mail Program.[*] I don't know how to modify the application menu to add more programs to it.[*] Once I installed Apache I don't know how to start the service automatically once I restart or shut down the system.[/list=1]
I hope some of the solutions I wrote help others.
