Following are some considerations for Fedora Linux installation. Explaining how to install Fedora Linux is beyond the scope of this document—refer to the Fedora documentation.
|1.||Download the Fedora Linux documentation from:
|2.||Before installing Linux, make sure the distribution you will be installing is 64-bit. Harmony 11 will not work if the OS is not 64-bit.|
|3.||When installing Fedora Linux, perform a Custom installation and select to install Everything to ensure that you get all the packages necessary to run Harmony.|
|4.||When prompted, select Firewall as disabled. Your file server should be behind a firewall, but not be configured as one.|
|5.||When prompted, select SELinux as disabled.|
Harmony has been tested and certified for use on the KDE windows manager.
Harmony works best with a minimum screen resolution of 1280 pixels x1024 pixels x 24-bit. If Fedora cannot detect your monitor, configure the monitor as a generic CRT or an LCD with this resolution and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Alternatively, consult your monitor manufacturer's documentation.
If you are new to Linux, it is recommended that you create a boot disk to facilitate recovery.
|1.||Verify if SELinux is enabled by reviewing the contents of the SELinux config file:|
|2.||Locate the line that starts with
This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
targeted - Targeted processes are protected.
mls - Multi Level Security protection.
|3.||If the value is set to something other than
|4.||Once the file is modified and saved, reboot the computer.|
You must install the recommended drivers for your NVIDIA video card, otherwise Harmony will not function.
In general, you should use the latest drivers. New drivers tend to resolve past driver issues. If you already have NVIDIA drivers installed, find the version number by typing:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "X Driver"
|1.||Download the Linux driver from the NVIDIA website:|
|2.||As a root user, switch to text mode when installing video card drivers.|
|3.||Install the NVIDIA kernel driver.|
|4.||Once the NVIDIA driver installation is successful, revert to graphical mode by starting X.|
