My sugar development setup
In my previous attempt I installed Fedora18 in a virtualbox vm.
This time, I switched from Fedora18 to Fedora19 because it is not necessary to build webkitgtk nor node.js to build sugar environment.
The F19 box is a standard one. I added "Development Tools" and python-devel to default packages.
sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools" sudo yum install python-devel.i686
I couldn't run Gnome desktop. I got a crash notification screen every

The next steps are documented in Sugar Labs development documentation.
git clone git://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar-build.git cd sugar-build
And finally, I launched the build process.

After that, it pulled and built only 30 git repositories.
Instead of several hours, I only need 30 minutes to complete the build process.
