Installing Ximian on Fedora?


Has anyone installed Ximian on Fedora yet? If so how did you do it? I checked Ximian's website and it looks like Fedora is not yet supported. Is there a way around this?

Thanks for you help,
Andy

Have you checked our reviews site or tried searching? What kind of response are you wanting or seeking? This question is kind of vague really. We have many Ximian and Fedora users on this site.


Cheers.

I did a search but didn't find any information on this partcular topic.

Let me get into the specifics...

I just did a fresh install of Fedora. I am trying to install Ximian Desktop 2 on the machine. I am attempting to install by running the following command from my terminal: wget -q -O - http://go.ximian.com |sh (I am logged in as root)
I receive a returned message stating that the version of Linux I am running is not compatible wit Ximian.

I am sure there is a way to install the software but I can't seem to figure it out...

Most likely then their scripts used isn't compatible at this time. You could opt to download the packages from their FTP server and maybe manually install it.
