Versions

These instructions are for the current version of Fedora 15. If you are using a older version you may need to use things like remi repo for up to date packages.

Build Tools

To install build tools, run the following:

su -c 'yum install make automake gcc gcc-c++ libxslt libxslt-devel libxml2 libxml2-devel libffi libffi-devel libcurl libcurl-devel openssl-devel sqlite-devel'

Ruby

RVM

You can install Ruby on a clean per user basis via [RVM](https://rvm.io/). This is currently recommended to get the latest Rubygems version.

You still need a system Ruby so run:

su -c 'yum install ruby-devel'

MySQL

This installs MySQL, you also need the mysql-devel package:

su -c 'yum install mysql-server mysql-devel'

Make sure you set UTF8 as default encoding for database, to do so in file /etc/my.cnf in section [mysqld] add following lines:

[mysqld]
...
# Set UTF8 by default
default-character-set = utf8
collation-server = utf8_unicode_ci
init-connect='SET NAMES utf8'
character-set-server = utf8

To start MySQL run

su -c 'service mysqld start'

PostGres

This installs Postgres also if you prefer to use this over MySQL (requires some postgres setup knowledge):

su -c 'yum install postgresql-server postgresql-devel'

To start Postgres check this guide.

ImageMagick

To install ImageMagick, run the following:

su -c 'yum install ImageMagick'

Git

To install Git, run the following:

su -c 'yum install git'

Redis

To install Redis, run the following:

su -c 'yum install redis'

Make a directory for redis logs

su -c 'mkdir /var/log/diaspora'

RubyGems

To install RubyGems, run the following:

su -c 'yum install rubygems'

Rubygems tends to be a little old, you can update it by:

su -c 'gem update --system'

Bundler

To install Bundler, run the following:

su -c  'gem install bundler'

Node.js

Follow the instructions on Installing-Node.js via Package Manager for Fedora to install the Node.js package from their repository

Congrats! You have all your dependencies installed. Proceed to Notes On Installing and Running Diaspora.
