103# Disable NetworkManager with chkconfig NetworkManager off. Configure
104# networking on the front end and back end, and the routing table to send

106# that the network will still be configured at next boot.

115# Install the full list of RPMs that users expect to be on the
116# scripts.mit.edu servers.  See server/doc/rpm and
117# server/doc/rpm_snapshot.  (Note that this is only a snapshot, and not
118# all packages may in fact be in use.)
119
120# Install the full list of perl modules that users expect to be on the
121# scripts.mit.edu servers.
122# - export PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1
123# - Run 'cpan', accept the default configuration, and do 'o conf
124#   prerequisites_policy follow'.
125# - Parse the output of perldoc -u perllocal | grep head2 on an existing
126#   server, and "notest install" them from the cpan prompt.
127# TO DO THIS:
128# On another server, run:
129# perldoc -u perllocal | grep head2 | cut -f 3 -d '<' | cut -f 1 -d '|' | sort -u | perl -ne 'chomp($pkg = $_); $pkg =~ s/::/-/g; print if system("rpm -q perl-$pkg >/dev/null 2>/dev/null")' > /mit/scripts/config/perl-packages.txt

132
133# Install the Python eggs and Ruby gems and PEAR/PECL doohickeys that are on
134# the other scripts.mit.edu servers and do not have RPMs.
135# - Look at /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages for Python eggs and modules.
136# - Look at `gem list` for Ruby gems.
137# - Look at `pear list` for Pear fruits (or whatever they're called).

142# certs).
143
144# If you are setting up a test server, pay attention to
145# /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and do not bind scripts' IP address.
146# You will also need to modify /etc/ldap.conf, /etc/nss-ldapd.conf,
147# /etc/openldap/ldap.conf, and /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost_ldap.conf to
148# use scripts.mit.edu instead of localhost.
149
150# Install fedora-ds-base and set up replication (see ./HOWTO-SETUP-LDAP
151#   and ./fedora-ds-enable-ssl-and-kerberos.diff).
152
153# Make the services dirsrv, nslcd, nscd, postfix, and httpd start at
154# boot. Run chkconfig to make sure the set of services to be run is
155# correct.
156
157# Run fmtutil-sys --all, which does something that makes TeX work.
158
159# Ensure that PHP isn't broken:
160# # mkdir /tmp/sessions
161# # chmod 01777 /tmp/sessions

163# Reboot the machine to restore a consistent state, in case you
164# changed anything.
