BlueQuartz 5100R Install kit howto with Fedora Core 1|
Stage::1 Building the reference environment
Building a Fedora Core 1 system for testing BlueQuartz.
Currently the BlueQuartz installation kit is based on a Fedora Core 1 minimised environment. Fundamentally, this BlueQuartz installation kit is intended for testing of the current development results.
Enevitably the testing environment will differ user by user, when users identify some issue or mulfunction, developers will do our best to help users who report the issues be recifying the problem, but it will take time. This feedback is vital as it is very difficult to identify something wrong in source code or user environment.
So that developers can concentrate on developing BlueQuartz code now, we want to fix the testing environment with this FC1 reference environment kit.
Getting ISO image of FC1 reference kit
Get BlueQuartz-5100R-reference-20040404.iso first.
(Please check the recent version. 20040404 version is about 311MB.)
URL has been moved to ftp://bluequartz.org/pub/BlueQuartz/5100R/i386/iso/ for newer version.
Then burn it to CD.
If you have FC1 CD-ROM set, we also provide a "Kick Start" file.
Installation FC1 reference kit
Boot by this CD-ROM on the target PC box.
(We recommend you make a dedicated PC box for testing BlueQuartz because this reference kit does not account about the dual booting.)

Please don't use automatic partitioning. Make following partitions by dogin "Manual partition with Disk Druid" in "Disk Partitioning Setup" menu.
device mount point file type size --------- ------------ ---------- ------- /dev/hda1 / ext3 2048M /dev/hda2 swap 2048M /dev/hda3 /var ext3 1024M /dev/hda4 (extend) (the rest of all) /dev/hda5 /home ext3 (the rest of all)(Please adjust the actual size of partitions for your disk size. If you want to make /boot, it is no problem. /home should be large because the almost data will be stored under /home.)
At the warning screen, select [OK].
