Setting up OpenStack on Fedora 19 is a lot of work
I wanted to experiment with creating a Fedora 19 compute node on Fedora 19 + OpenStack. However it seems there are a bunch of issues which need to be fixed. The issues and solutions are already recorded by many people.
I list the highlights:
- MySQL Server in Fedora 19 is actually MariaDB Server
- Keystone log file needs to be chowned to keyston:keystone
- Fedora 19 doesnt have kvm.modules file at the expected location
- I saw atleast one error due to selinux
I am recording the errors, commands and references in the following gist on github.com: openstack-fedora19.md
Finally I managed to complete the setup. Now its time to launch some VMs.!
