The broken test iso....
Current iso is (as of writing) Fedora-20090108-alpha-disc?.iso
From Jay Estabrook:
This has GNOME/KDE/XFCE and window managers, along with
many of the groups tweaked to --optional - that's why
it runs to 5 CDs (2503 RPMs)... ;-}
Will do a GUI install (!), but...
Upon rebooting, it gets hung somewhere in starting the X server
with the defaults for monitor and such, so best to stick with
text-mode installs and "startx"... :-\
- at the "reboot" screen, toggle to VC2 and edit /mnt/sysimage/etc/aboot.conf
to remove "rhgb and quiet" and replace with "selinux=off"
- for Radeons, make sure to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to
disable DRI (add an 'Option "DRI" "off"') BEFORE the
first start of X (ie first reboot at single user)
- chkconfig NetworkManager off and chkconfig network on
on first reboot at single user
Use of KDE results in MANY unaligned accesses which slows it down.
XFCE seems to work fine, in the small amount of use I've given it.
NFS installs are fine, BUT make sure to remove the CD at the point
where it asks what the install medium is; apparently, it will sense
the CD even if you tell it NFS, and use the CD instead... :-\
In case yum doesn't work, please do this:
rpm -Uvh http://buildsys.zero42.at/mnt/koji/packages/fedora-release/9/3axp/noarch/fedora-release-9-3axp.noarch.rpm
