Updating Fedora Core 1 to perfection

There are three things I do after installing Fedora Core 1 on any system.

1.) Get apt-get.

# rpm -Uvh http://atrpms.net/dist/fc1/atrpms-kickstart/atrpms-kickstart-22-1.rhfc1.at.i386.rpm

2.) Update the whole system via apt-get.

# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

3.) Install TrueType fonts from the instructions provided here.


\*Steps 1 and 2 are gleaned from Jarod Wilsons MythTV Installation Guide

I hadn't seen that page before, the package is now at ver22 (not 20 in the url) there is also a fedora core 2 update script. It only wanted to update 384mb! apt-get seemed to be picky about my proxy setting. It wanted the url quoted, ie http_proxy="http://myproxy:8080"

It's also possible to do the update via yum, run $yum update. Make sure you pick a fast mirror, though: http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html and change /etc/yum.conf. You can also use up2date to fetch newer packages using a yum repo as the backend, see the file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources. Besides, up2date has a decent GUI. As an aside, how do I add a newline? This post is almost illegible.

I fixed the link to point to ver22, so it's working now. Thanks to Calvin for pointing that out.
