How to install Amahi 7?

Postby inquam » Sun May 26, 2013 6:29 am

Reading the wiki it states
NOTE: it's best to start installing "on the fly" with the Fedora 18 install, by adding f18.amahi.org as a repo at the time that Fedora allows you to add new repos. We are past the phase of installing packages by hand and want to start testing as users would install!
But what does "on the fly" actually mean? I just installed the minimal version of Fedora 18 linked to in the page https://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Fedora_18

But not once did it give me the option to add additional repos. So a bit more information would be helpfull.

Sorry, that means to add this file by hand:

Code: Select all

$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/amahi.repo [amahi] name=Amahi repository for Fedora $releasever baseurl=http://f$releasever.amahi.org/ gpgcheck=0 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-amahi
or with this command, which does virtually the same:

Code: Select all

rpm -Uvh http://f18.amahi.org/noarch/hda-release-6.9.0-1.noarch.rpm

And what steps shiould be taken after that? Or is everything like "before" (stated on the page I linked to)? Manually adding user etc?

Hi, we just added a new page called [wiki]Amahi 7 installation[/wiki] to the wiki, for testers (i.e. non-developer users). I am not sure I captured everything there and we will need feedback as to what is missing to make them accurate instructions.

Thanks for taking time to test Amahi 7 ... we can definitely use the manpower for testing!

Well, my old Amahi installation was quite old so it needed to be upgraded... and the main hdd started having issues a few days ago:P

Is greyhole not included at all in AMahi 7 yet? I thought only a future gui was the thing "missing". But I don't even have the executable :)

good catch, i thought we put it in the repo earlier, but i just checked and we did not.

will do in the next release.

Is it safe to install it manually or will that break things when you include it later?

Also, noted that the page at amahi.org states "Waiting install" even after I completed the install.

You can add it manually, but not sure why you would. This is testing of the platform and there are still bugs to be worked out. No apps are hooked in yet.

We are most likely going to make Greyhole an app. That will allow users to install it if they want it vs having it there by default. It will also allow us to provide a GUI for it as well.

The installing part on amahi.org is on the list as well to be worked. We are trying to get the basic pieces in place, then will work on the minor issues as time goes on.
