Not Getting Text Console

Postby barrymichael » Sat Oct 14, 2017 8:41 pm

I'm a complete newbie to setting up a server with Amahi. After installing Fedora and I reboot, I do get the "localhost login." After entering my login and password, I get the following: [mikeyjay@localhost ~]$

From the installation instructions, it seems like I should be getting a "text console" with "sudo su -"
I don't get that at all.

What am I doing wrong?
Please help because I don't want to give up and use Windows.

That is the text console. At that prompt you enter the commands as the guidance states.

First one is:

Code: Select all

sudo su -

Thank you so much.

But I never see "sudo su -"

Here's what the instructions say, which are unclear. The second sentence appears to be missing instructions:

"You need to obtain an install code (denoted YOUR-INSTALL-CODE below) from the Amahi control panel after configuring a profile for the system you are installing, with proper network configuration for your network.

From text console or using SSH (logged in with the user created in the Fedora 25 installation), become root for the Amahi installation. When prompted for a password, it's your user password you set in the Fedora 25 install.

sudo su -

After that, type these three separate commands (one per line) in the console:

rpm -Uvh http://f25.amahi.org/noarch/hda-release ... noarch.rpm
dnf -y install hda-ctl
hda-install YOUR-INSTALL-CODE"

No no no.

One you login and get the Linux prompt, you have to enter:

Code: Select all

sudo su -
Then enter your password again.

Once that is complete, you then enter the other commands, one at a time and press enter. Once each is done, you enter the next one.

Most users don’t have a problem with these instructions. Maybe you could help make them easier to understand.

Thanks, again.

I entered "sudo su -" after the prompt [mikeyjay@local host ~]$

I got a line that said: [sudo] password for mikey jay:
I entered my password and got: "[root@localhost ~]"
I entered the first line: "rpm -Uvh http://f25.amahi.org/noarch/hda-release ... noarch.rpm"

I got a line that says: "Retrieving http://f25.amahi.org/noarch/hda-release ... noarch.rpm"
But then a line that says: "curl: (7) failed to connect to f25.amahi.org port 80: No route to host"
"error: skipping http://f25.amahi.org/noarch/hda-release ... noarch.rpm - transfer failed
[root@localhost ~]#

I must have messed up something.

That typically indicates you don't have network connectivity.

Try rebooting the machine, then try again.

I'm connected via wire.

I rebooted and got the same message.

Recommend you check out Install troubleshooting page.

If that does not help, you may need to start over with the Fedora 25 install. What guidance/media did you use for the install?

It's best if you do the Minimal (CD), so-called Netinstall version.

We only recommend DVD for those who need additional hardware drivers, typically discovered when the Minimal CD doesn't work.

It's also important you follow the instructions precisely and do not deviate. There are screen shots for a reason, please use them.
