Setting-up Fedora 11

Fedora 11 was released a month ago, but it’s only now that I am able to completely configure my desktop to run on top of it.  It is because I’m still happy with Fedora 10.  I’ve established my development environment and I find no need to upgrade it yet.  In any case, I’m going to upgrade my Fedora 10 installation once I’m able to fully clone my environment in my other machine.

Similar to how I configured my Fedora 10 installation, I selected both Web Development and Web Server options when asked what additional tasks I want my system to support, to make my post-installation setup easier.

I also selected the following packages during installation:

Desktop Environment

  • KDE (K Desktop Environment)

Development

  • Fedora Eclipse
  • Java Development

Servers

  • MySQL Database
  • PostgreSQL Database

And here are my post-installation configurations:

Setting-up Fedora 10

The last time I setup my Fedora 9 installation, I did not select the Software Development and Web Server options when I was asked what additional tasks I would like my system to support for.  This time, in Fedora 10, I checked them both.  I wanted to see if post-installation setups will be easier.  I also wanted to check out more applications.

I selected the following packages during installation:

Desktop Environment

  • KDE (K Desktop Environment)

Development

  • Fedora Eclipse – based on Eclipse 3.4.1
  • Java Development – OpenJDK Development Environment
  • Web Development

Servers

  • MySQL Database
  • PostgreSQL Database
  • Web Server
    • php-pgsql-5.2.6-5.x86_64

And here are the post-installation setups:

Setting-up Fedora 9

The default installation of Fedora 9 includes a set of software applicable for general internet usage.  During installation, when you are asked what additional tasks you would like your system to support for, you have the option to include support for Software Development and Web server in addition to the Office and Productivity.  However, if you don’t further customize the software selection (like what I did, because I was too excited to check out Sulphur), you still probably won’t get all the software you need.

This post will cover those things that a regular user might need.  Also included in this post are a couple of tools I use for web development.
