Fedora 17 no desktop - after installing fog server with script i can't get the web interface

  • Hi all,

    I got Fedora 17 running on a virtuabox VM with Virtualbox additions installed. I ran the installfog.sh script and completed the questions… only got one error:

    Checking package: php-gettext…Failed!

    else everything worked fine.

    My Fog server has IP and when i visit [url][/url] nothing happens.

    I can ping the maschine
    I can’t telnet port 80 or 8080 or 443

    I tried to reboot which didn’t help…

    All this test were done from my host mashine running virutual box and its from that i try and access the mangemenet site using IE9

    Is the php-getext that crusial for it to work? and how do i fix it?



  • I don’t have a Fedora box laying around but, the first google hit for php-gettext on fedora showed “php-php-gettext” FWIW. So, assuming that’s correct then change php-gettext to php-php-gettext in that file and try again. If you get any more errors then correct 'em and try again! 🙂

  • Hi afmrick,

    Im totally new to Linux! 🙂 This was ment to be my little project to get to know the OS. Though i know what you are talking about i could really need some help how to fix it cause i have no clue where to start.

    The reason i went with Fedora was actually because it was the only other choice rather then Ubuntu the fog installation seemed to support in the script and I have had allot of problems installaing the virtualbox additions on the ubuntu VM so i went with Fedora which worked better.

    How do i find out what the actual package names are?

    I nanoed the file you mention and got this:

    Packages="httpd php php-gd php-cli php-gettext mysql mysql-server php-myswl dhc$

    there is allso a storagenodepackages with the excat line as above besides from mysql-server and including nfs-utils which is not on list above
    Allso it says my langpackages is “iso-codes”.

    So does anyone of you afmrick have any clue how to fix it?



  • If you check out fog_0.32/lib/redhat/config.sh you’ll see a line like this:
    [CODE]packages=“httpd php php-gd php-cli php-gettext mysql mysql-server php-mysql dhcp tftp-server nfs-utils vsftpd net-tools wget xinetd tar gzip make m4 gcc gcc-c++ htmldoc perl perl-Crypt-PasswdMD5 lftp clamav-update”;[/CODE]
    When the install failed at “php-gettext” it probably didn’t install any of the packages listed after it. IIRC, there’s a couple package names you might have to modify in that list for Fedora (or repositories) …and possibly a path or two in the script.
