Subject: [fedora-arm] Question about f8 arm-linux rpms (xorg-x11)
I'd like to use rpms from
Everything/arm/os/Packages/) to get a working xorg/x11 server on my
I'm quite confused about various xorg-x11* packages, for example there
no xorg-x11-server rpm (only xorg-x11-server-utils).
You need the URL that you mentioned and the one below -
Would anyone explain me which rpms are needed to get a working
server on my embedded box?
The main idea is that you start with a 80MB base rootfs that has bash +
yum + rpm. Afterwards you configure yum to get feeds from the fedora-8
ARM repos (both the releases and updates); and once that's done you
simply 'yum install' what you need.
Do you have an initial rootfs with yum and rpm as indicated by previous
email (emails referring to Fedora-ARM wikis)?
If not then -
1. Get a working rootfs from -
2. Download and place the yum repo file config (URL below) into your
/etc/yum.repo.d . Note that the repo file already indicates the releases
and updates repos.
3. run 'yum clean all' to remove all history in yum database so next
time you call 'yum' it will refresh it's database.
4. Install what you need. For example 'yum install xorg-x11-server-Xorg'
and yum will automatically download and install all the dependencies.
