installing unreal engine on fedora 25

Linking GitHub with EpicGames

In this article you’ll find a way to get unreal engine and make it work on fedora 25. Firstly, you need to signup in github and then link your github account with your epic games account: https://www.unrealengine.com/ue4-on-github Then you should receive an email confirming you joined up to the epic games organization. Once you receive it, you can clone the source code of unreal engine:

git clone https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine.git
cd UnrealEngine/

Fixing a corrupted partition on a virtual machine

If you ever find the following error while using vagrant or simply when booting a virtual machine, we’ll later see how to solve it.

Web development environment

In this post we’ll configure an advanced web development environment.

Prerequisites

We’ll use the following tecnologies for our environment. You should review them before going on.
