  Table of Contents









  Fedora  Core  is  delivered  on multiple CD-ROMs consisting of

  installation CD-ROMs and source code CD-ROMs.


  The  first installation CD-ROM can be directly booted into the

  installation on most modern systems, and contains the following

  directory structure (where /mnt/cdrom is the mount point of the





  |----> Fedora

  |        |----> RPMS        -- binary packages

  |        `----> base        -- information on this release of Fedora

  |                              Core used by the installation process

  |----> images                -- boot and driver disk images

  |----> README                -- this file

  `----> RPM-GPG-KEY          -- GPG signature for packages from Red H





  The remaining Installation CD-ROMs are similar to Installation

  CD-ROM 1, except that only the Fedora subdirectory is present.


  The directory layout of each source code CD-ROM is as follows:



  |----> SRPMS                -- source packages

  `----> RPM-GPG-KEY          -- GPG signature for packages from Red H





  If you are setting up an installation tree for NFS, FTP, or HTTP

  installations, you need to copy the RELEASE-NOTES files and all

  files from the Fedora directory on discs 1-3. On Linux and Unix

  systems,  the  following  process  will properly configure the

  /target/directory on your server (repeat for each disc):

    1. Insert disc

    2. mount /mnt/cdrom

    3. cp -a /mnt/cdrom/Fedora /target/directory

    4. cp /mnt/cdrom/RELEASE-NOTES* /target/directory (Do this only for

      disc 1)

    5. umount /mnt/cdrom




  Many computers can now automatically boot from CD-ROMs. If you have

  such a machine (and it is properly configured) you can boot the

  Fedora  Core  CD-ROM  directly. After booting, the Fedora Core

  installation program will start, and you will be able to install

  your system from the CD-ROM.


  The images/ directory contains the file boot.iso. This file is an

  ISO image that can be used to boot the Fedora Core installation

  program. It is a handy way to start network-based installations

  without having to use multiple diskettes. To use boot.iso, your

  computer must be able to boot from its CD-ROM drive, and its BIOS

  settings must be configured to do so. You must then burn boot.iso

  onto a recordable/rewriteable CD-ROM.


  Another  image  file  contained  in  the  images/ directory is

  diskboot.img. This file is designed for use with USB pen drives (or

  other bootable media with a capacity larger than a diskette drive).

  Use the dd command to write the image.




  The ability to use this image file with a USB pen drive depends on

  the ability of your system's BIOS to boot from a USB device.

for anyone in the UK i recommend that you use the link




as i am getting 1,800KBps from it so its fast.





just as a note... mirror.ac.uk went through a bit of difficulty in funding recently and Kent Uni was worried about the possiblity of it disappearing (afaik this hasn't been resolved) anyway, around this time mirrorservice.org turned up, mirrorservice was JISC taking action to ensure that the mirror been provided by Kent Uni didn't just vanish with no replacement. The service that mirror.ac.uk provides will die (or has?) and mirrorservice.org will become the permant home for the mirror service. The rates I have achieved on from them have been huge (as you've seen), so needless to say all my downloads are from them :)


Anyway, exact same link but from mirrorservice:

My first fedora install, after redhat.. i'm impressed, now it fully supports all the hardware on my laptop, and shutsdown perfectly (used to hang CPU), I must say this distro is bliss.

yum is already installed once you install FC4 into your system, why you mention the apt-get for fc4? isnt it bad to have both? I mean yum and apt-get in the same system? I've heard of a pro unixer people that never install apt-get & yum in the same system, What do you think guys?

although on the surface it would see so, the answer is no


yum apt and up2date can live on the same system and work together, the reason behind this is a simple one, they all are just frontends to RPM (on fedora) which is the real backend.

yum caters for one audience and i must admit it's improving but the downsides of it are the long times it takes to download the package headers.


that said, yum is good enough to do this


yum -y install apt


and now you have apt-get !


i use both apt-get and yum to do my program updates, it's extremely rare these days that i touch up2date and with FCR5 coming next month, you can expect it to have a graphical manager for yum (called PUP) which will hopefully give people more of a liking towards yum


both yum and apt-get have their plus's and minus's,


having both allows you to have the best of both worlds
