Crossover Wine Steam Nvidia Fedora 19 x64 Helper Post

On my Fedora 19 x64 system I needed to install a few extra i686 (or 32-bit) packages to get my gaming softwares to work. To do so I used the below yum command (it's a LONG one).

yum install isdn4k-utils.i686 cups-libs.i686 dbus-libs.i686 fontconfig.i686 mesa-libGLU.i686 gstreamer-plugins-base.i686 gstreamer.i686 gnutls.i686 libgphoto2.i686 gsm.i686 libjpeg-turbo.i686 openldap.i686 lcms-libs.i686 libmpg123.i686 openal-soft.i686 libpng.i686 sane-backends-libs.i686 libv4l.i686 libXcomposite.i686 libXcursor.i686 libXinerama.i686 libxml2.i686 libxslt.i686 openssl-libs.i686 nss-mdns.i686 gnupg:i686 gnupg xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686

The gaming apps in question were Wine, Crossover and Steam. I suppose it'd apply to any other 32-bit game or OpenGL app.

Pithos Pandora Client in Fedora 19 / 20

I had a dickens of a time trying to find Pithos packages for Fedora 19. At a loss for answers I figured I'd build it myself. After searching Google for a bit I came up with

It's for Fedora 16 and 17 but it worked for Fedora 19 just fine. Below is a rehash of the steps needed to download and compile Pithos.

Step 1 - Input this command to add the rpmfusion repositories. One long command.

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck

Step 2 - Input this yum command to install dependencies for Pithos. One long command.

yum install python pyxdg pygobject2 pylast gstreamer-python notify-python gtk2-python dbus-python gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly python-distutils…
