Remove section that is now covered by the installation guide
  • ## Installing QPixel on Fedora Linux using RVM without brew
  • If you happen to be installing in this situation, a few things might have different names. Here are some of the differences I had to allow for.
  • *__Disclaimer__: I have no insight or familiarity with QPixel or any of the packages described below. These are just the variations that got me to a QPixel installation that was working well enough to display the Codidact homepage.*
  • *This may or may not be similar for Red Hat and CentOS installations.*
  • ### ImageMagick
  • > An error occurred while installing rmagick (4.2.6), and Bundler cannot continue.
  • Instead of the recommended `libmagickwand-dev`, which is not available on Fedora, you can use `ImageMagick-devel`:
  • ```text
  • dnf install ImageMagick-devel
  • ```
  • I couldn't find an official guide to this but I stumbled upon the alternative name for the package in a [guide to Python bindings for ImageMagick](https://docs.wand-py.org/en/0.2.4/guide/install.html#install-imagemagick-redhat). That guide refers to `yum` instead of `dnf` as it's aimed at Red Hat, but it installed for me on Fedora using `dnf`.
  • ### MySQL
  • > An error occurred while installing mysql2 (0.5.4), and Bundler cannot continue.
  • Instead of the recommended `mysql-server`, which is not available on Fedora, you can use the community maintained `community-mysql-server`:
  • ```text
  • dnf install community-mysql-server
  • systemctl enable mysqld
  • systemctl start mysqld
  • ```
  • I found I also needed to install `mysql-devel`:
  • ```text
  • dnf install mysql-devel
  • ```
  • The [guide to installing MySQL on Fedora](https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/installing-mysql-mariadb/#install-from-fedora-main-repo) also includes instructions for installing Oracle's package instead of the community maintained one if you prefer.
  • ### libvips
  • `libvips` is not available under that name on Fedora, instead it is called `vips`:
  • ```text
  • dnf install vips
  • ```
  • ### Redis
  • I discovered on the [Redis Fedora page](https://developer.fedoraproject.org/tech/database/redis/about.html) that `redis-server` is not available under that name on Fedora, instead it is called `redis`:
  • ```text
  • dnf install redis
  • systemctl enable redis
  • systemctl start redis
  • ```
  • ### storage.yml
  • I also needed to manually copy `config/storage.sample.yml` to `config/storage.yml`. I didn't need to change anything, just mentioning that I needed to make the copy, as I couldn't find anything about this in [the QPixel installation instructions](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/blob/develop/INSTALLATION.md).
  • ### Integrating RVM with Gnome terminal
  • If you are using Gnome (the default desktop environment for Fedora), then the terminal is by default set up in a way that will give you the following error:
  • > RVM is not a function
  • This is likely to be part of a larger error message depending on what you were trying to do. In particular, this prevents selecting a Ruby version using `rvm use 3.3.0`.
  • You can find guidance and explanation on [RVM's dedicated gnome terminal page](https://rvm.io/integration/gnome-terminal) (the solution is simply ticking a checkbox in the terminal preferences).
  • ---
  • ## Security
  • This is not a security guide. Please use your own judgement on whether each command does or does not need to be entered with something like `sudo` or `su`. I am not qualified to tell you what is safe for your particular system.

## Installing QPixel on Fedora Linux without brew
If you happen to be installing in this situation, a few things might have different names. Here are some of the differences I had to allow for.

*This may or may not be similar for Red Hat and CentOS installations.*

### ImageMagick
> <p style="color:red">An error occurred while installing rmagick (4.2.6), and Bundler cannot continue.</p>

Instead of the recommended `libmagickwand-dev`, which is not available on Fedora, you can use `ImageMagick-devel`:

```text
dnf install ImageMagick-devel
```

I couldn't find an official guide to this but I stumbled upon the alternative name for the package in a [guide to Python bindings for ImageMagick](https://docs.wand-py.org/en/0.2.4/guide/install.html#install-imagemagick-redhat).
