Fedora setup notes


Server (minimal/cli)

Minimal install really is minimal. Better to choose minimal and then add base packages - gives nano, ssh etc.

If this gives you Networkmanager - remove this:

yum remove NetworkManager

Use system-config-network to configure /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Enable network on boot with

chkconfig network on

Start with

service network on

NTP service is ntpdate, so:

systemctl start ntpd.service
systemctl enable ntpd.service

etc. Config file is /etc/ntp.conf as usual.

Firewall config script:


Configures /etc/sysconfig/iptables

XFCE (directory server)

Choose packages XFCE, then deselect games etc.

Removed Network Manager.


Removed XFCE power manager.

ACPI shutdown worked ok when logged on, but didn't at the login screen. To fix this changed /etc/acpi/actions/power.sh to:



shutdown -h now

i.e. removed all the stuff that checks for other power managers running.

startup/shutdown splash screen

Disabled this and got more text details by editing grub command line options to remove quiet and rhgb

Edit /etc/default/grub and remove rhgb (and quiet if desired) from the boot options, then run

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
