64 bit Install
- Install Fedora 18. Minimal installs that can fit on a CD, such as XFCE and LXDE, work well.
- Log in as root and yum -y update
- Verify wget is present, if not, then yum -y install wget
- Disable SELinux: edit /etc/selinux/config from SELINUX=enforcing to SELINUX=disabled
- Ensure one or two ethernet devices are connected
- Ensure you are root
- Change directory by typing cd /etc/yum.repos.d
- Download the required yum repo by typing wget http://xsce.activitycentral.com/repos/xsce-rel4.repo
- Install xs-config by typing yum -y install xs-config also type yum -y install xs-config-x86_64
- Type xs-setup This generates a long list of "yum" install requests, similar to the normal adding of functions that you would do if you loaded a minimal "network" install CD from Fedora, and then added additional functions one at a time.
- When the install script is complete, it will declare, "XS configured; Ready to reboot and use" and then you'll be back at a prompt.
- At the prompt, type reboot
