Description Răzvan Sandu 2007-08-14 11:21:43 EDT
Description of problem: Hello, Despite the fact that fedora-ds-base-1.1.0 is present in Fedora repository, there are many missing pieces of information on http://directory.fedoraproject.org/ that prevents a clean, problem-free installation. Missing information prevents practical installation; small number of installations means less testing and less contributions from the final users. To make FDS practically usable on Fedora 7, please provide on the site minimal information about: - installation instructions for *recent* versions of Fedora (Fedora 7 or 8 test 1); - basic configuration of FDS after RPM installation (instructions must match the actual file layout installed by RPM) - a clear and updated list of actual prebuilt rpm packages that compose FDS, in the current version - instructions how to install a *recent* version of Java - why all information refer to Sun or IBM java 1.4.2 or 5, when the most recent version is 6 ? - instructions of how to install and use recent Java RPMs for Fedora 7 (maybe from http://www.jpackage.org or http://liquidat.wordpress.com/2007/05/31/howto-sun-java-on-fedora-7/) - an explicit roadmap and possible timelines for future development Regards, Răzvan Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): fedora-ds-base-1.1.0 How reproducible: Always. Actual results: There are missing pieces of information on http://directory.fedoraproject.org, preventing practical RPM installation of FDS without ugly manual hacking, even for minimal usage and testing. A clear and supported procedure of installing Java 6 on F7 is not given. Information on http://directory.fedoraproject.org is very old (refers to many obsoleted pieces of software or procedures). Expected results: At least minimal installation (supported) procedures should be provided - about latest Java and FDS itself - to allow practical installations, from prebuilt RPM, on the latest version of Fedora. Recommended Java installation procedure should not interfere with other programs installed on the system, that use Java. The final goal is to easily obtain a fully functional FDS, at least for testing and practical minimal usage, from recent prebuilt RPMs.

I think all of your issues have been addressed. Please refer to the Fedora DS web site for the latest information about Fedora DS 1.1.
