I was quite happy with how "minimal" this install really was, and during boot time only 10 or so services were started. However, I came across some problems, and this was a great opportunity to learn.
- No Internet Connectivity
- Did ifconfig and did not see eth0
- Did ifconfig eth0 up, which didn't give an ip to the nic
- Did dhclient eth0 (thanks to xand in #networking on Freenode). However, this will have to be done after every reboot and doesn't enable eth0 automatically at boot time
- Type chkconfig network on
- Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (thank you nirik on #fedora on Freenode)
- NM_CONTROLLED="no" (So both network and NM don't fight)
- Here is more information on editing ifcfg files
- Since I did a "minimal" install, I do want to keep this small and that's why I didn't install NetworkManager or system-config-network utilities whereas they could've made my job a lot easier as far as configuring network goes.
- No Nano
- yum install nano
- But this wasn't working for me before because I had no internet, so I edited the above file using vi. Another great learning opportunity.
- Link to vi Cheat Sheet
- Disable SELinux and IPTables
- For temporary disable do "echo 0 >/selinux/enforce"
- For permanent permissive or disable mode, edit /etc/selinux/config
- Here is more information on changing SELinux settings
- For my environment, I do not need iptables
- chkconfig iptables off
- chkconfig ip6tables off
