I've looked high and low, but can't find much info concerning the use of this option.

General :: Configure 1000 Base T Ethernet Card To Send At 1000 Base T?

Sep 22, 2009

I have a router that is 1000 Base T and two computers each with ethernet cards that support 1000 Base T. All are equipped with Cat 5e cable. Before I had a router that only went up to 100 Base T and I would setup one box with linux running proftpd. On the other box,I would use win xp pro and use firefox to ftp into the other box and download a file. Download speeds went up to 11.2 MB/sec. Now when I switched routers, I expected something like 120 MB/sec but I'm only getting 5.3 MB/sec. What do I need to change?

Fedora Installation :: Does Live USB Creator Create A Working System For Windows 7?

May 12, 2010

Before going too far it may be simplest to answer the question "Does Live USB Creator create a working system for Windows 7?" If not then don't bother reading further. I have installed Live USB Creator on a 32-bit Windows 7 computer but when I run it I can't for the life of me get it to recognize any type of drive. I've read and tried the instructions of using the command line with the --force [drive]: but that has no effect Maybe I am misunderstanding this whole program. From what I read about it, this program will create a working Windows system, place it on a USB stick and then run Windows on a different computer. In my application I would like to run it on my work computer which has Windows XP. If this application should work then will I have complete access to all my computer drives and files and the network/internet? I imagine I would need to install all necessary programs so that I could use them in Windows 7 and would I need to install those programs on the USB stick or could they be on a local hard drive?

Fedora Installation :: Base F13 Install No Network

Jun 14, 2010

I have done a base install with CD#1 and can boot to a prompt and login with root. I cannot use the network. There is no system-config-network program for me to run. There is also no network-manager in chkconfig --list. There is a network item in chkconfig --list and I have turned it on and rebooted to no effect. Googling for base install has found me virtually no information to go on.

Fedora :: 14 Base Install Is Installing Extra Package Groups?

Dec 1, 2010

When I'm running, I like to just do a base install to start, so that, I can go from there, only added things that I need. I just did a Base install of Fedora 14 x86_64, selecting only the "Base" package, and "vim-enhanced". But, when running a grouplist, it comes back with this...


[root@fcdesktop01 ~]# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Group Process


I don't see why these extra groups are included, when all I asked for was Base and vim?

Fedora :: Run A LiveCD Without A CD?

Mar 5, 2009

I know that this question has been asked many times across many forums and last night, I finally figured out how to do it from Windows. I'll post the procedure for an existing Linux distro later. "Is it possible to run a LiveCD iso off of the hard drive?" Yes it is. Here's how:

1. Download the Fedora LiveCD from here.

2. An .iso file is basically like an archive; except that it's made for CDs. Extract the entire file into a vfat, ext3, or ext2 partition. I use WinRAR (for Windows) as my extractor. IMPORTANT: This method won't work if you extract the file into a NTFS partition.

3. Install UNetbootin and run it. Select "Fedora" as the distribution and "10 Net_Install" as the version. At the bottom of the dialogue screen, under type, select "Hard Drive" and next to that, select your partition (C:, D:, etc.).

4. Press OK. Unetbootin will install a basic GRUB bootloader. When it promts you to restart, press Cancel. You don't want to restart... yet...

5. Browse to your Windows partition (most likely C. You should see a folder called "unetin". Browse into that folder and you'll see a file called "menu". Open it with Notepad.

6. Paste this text at the bottom of the file:

title Fedora LiveCD
root (hdx,x) "NOTE: Replace hdx,x with your partition holding the extracted iso. Most likely, it'll be either (hd0,0), (hd0,1), or (hd0,2)"


7. Restart and select "Unetbootin" when Windows shows your Bootloader. Wait 3 seconds and press Esc.

8. Select "Fedora LiveCD" and press enter. You should boot into the LiveCD. It might be slow, so be patient and it'll come up.


1. Grub Error 15: File not found: It's likely that you made a typo in the menu file or that you didn't set your /dev/xxx (hdx,x) parameters correctly. Try changing those around and it should work.

Fedora :: LiveCD - DVD With RPM Capability ?

Sep 22, 2010

I tried the rescue mode of the install DVD. It doesn't have any package management initialized. What I want to do is have a LiveCD environment where I can install an RPM package into that live running system (not persistently ... but pretending so in RAM).

Ubuntu can do this. If I choose "Try Ubuntu" in the boot menu selection, I get a live system that has the DEB package manager ready to go. It can install more packages that depend on packages already installed.

I just want the same but having Fedora. If 16 GB of RAM is not enough, I can get more.

Fedora :: Where Does One Obtain Livecd-tools

Feb 24, 2011

Been a ubuntu user for almost a year. I've decided to branch out and install fedora on my other laptop.

Currently I'm trying to create a bootable usb using this guide:[url]

Using rpm to check for livecd-tools tells me it's not installed.

I tried to get it through apt-get install livecd-tools. But that didn't find anything.

I tried installing yum and to obtain it but to no avail. Same error as apt, "Not available".

Fedora Installation :: Grub Does Not Load On MBR Using LiveCD

Sep 18, 2009

I had Win XP on my T61. I installed Fedora 11 from Gnome LiveCD. Now I cant even see GRUB. The laptop boots directly into Win XP. I had the partitions like this:

/dev/sda1 - Win XP - NTFS - 75 GB
/dev/sda2 - Win Recovery - NTFS - 5 GB
/dev/sda3 - /boot - ext3 - 1 GB
/dev/sda4 - Logical extended partition
/dev/sda5 - / - ext4 - 10 GB
/dev/sda6 - swap - 3 GB

Installed GRUB on the MBR (/dev/sda, and not on any partition). Once I completed installing Fedora 11 from the LiveCD and rebooted, the laptop directly boots into Win XP. No sign of Fedora there. How do I get to install GRUB now?
