The camp will include several hands-on sections using a Fedora 4 virtual machine image, so please follow these instructions to get the VM up and running on your laptop *before* the workshop.
NOTE: The VM uses 2GB of RAM, so you will need a laptop with at least 4GB of RAM to run it. Depending on your laptop manufacturer, you may also need to enable virtualization in the BIOS.
- Download and install VirtualBox
- Download and install Vagrant
- Download and unzip the 4.7.0 release of the Fedora 4 VM
- Using a Command Line Interface, navigate to the VM directory from step 3 and run the command: vagrant up
- Note that this step will take a while as the VM downloads and installs a full virtual environment
- Test the VM by opening your web browser and navigating to: http://localhost:8080/fcrepo
- The administrator username/password is fedoraAdmin/secret3
- Turn off the VM by running the command: vagrant halt
We will also be making use of the SSH command - if you are running Mac OSX or Linux you can already run this command, but if you are on Windows you will need an SSH client like PuTTY.
