The Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 3 - Page 3
2 Installing And Configuring The Rest Of The System
Configure Additional IP Addresses
Let's assume our network interface is eth0. Then there is a file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 which looks like this:
Now we want to create the virtual interface eth0:0 with the IP address 192.168.0.101. All we have to do is to create the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0 which looks like this:
Afterwards we have to restart the network:
Setting The Hostname
Install apt For Fedora
apt is the packaging system used on Debian. Since it cares much better for package dependencies than rpm it would be nice if we could use it on our new Fedora system. This would save us a lot of hassle. Fortunately, apt has been ported to a lot of rpm based distributions, and is also available for Fedora Core 3 (you will love it... :-)).
rpm -ivh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/3/apt/apt-0.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm
Edit /etc/apt/sources.list. It should contain the following lines:
In the last two lines, rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/2/i386 core updates freshrpms and rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms, the numbers 2 and 1 are not errors or typos! These repositories have some packages which we are going to install soon! So do not change these lines!
Install Some Software
apt-get install which fetchmail wget bzip2 unzip zip nmap openssl lynx fileutils ncftp
apt-get install quota
Edit /etc/fstab to look like this (I added ,usrquota,grpquota to LABEL=/ (mount point /):
touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
apt-get install bind-chroot
Bind will run in a chroot jail under /var/named/chroot/var/named/.
