Preparing development Machine on Linux for LAMP Programming based on Fedora Distro

1. Get Vmware Player if using Windows. It seems it much better than VirtualBox. Reason? It just works. Screen just works.
No time wasted for setting up resolutions etc. You can copy between screens etc. It just making live easier!

2. Update Fedora to latest.
yum distro-sync ( I need to do it to avoid transaction errors preventing me from installing Vim)

3. A must have for Vim users
yum install git
yum install vim
yum install gvim

http://vim.spf13.com/#install
Simply run the following command:
curl http://j.mp/spf13-vim3 -L -o – | sh

4. Get a Vagrant so we can separate our servers 😉

5. Install necessary files (RHEL,Fedora based distros)
