i'm attempting to know and understand fedora more and i will spend probably the next month pouring through all the forums and documents to answer more of my own questions. but there's quite a bit here, so i'd thought i'd ask some noob questions to get me started a little.
ive installed fedora 14 64bit and chosen only kde as the desktop. i selected an extra 2 repos besides the default, fedora 14 -x86_64 and fedora 14-x86_64 -updates. i believe this kernel is installed: 188.8.131.52-83
1. i can only see the 2 extra repo's as being "checked" in kpackagekit, shouldn't i see the default repo also ?
2. i dont have an applet in the system tray indicating the system is up to date, does fedora have this by default ? also after a clean install i ran yum check-update and yum update but the message sayes: "no packages marked for update". i'm not sure if the system is auto-updated during install or not, but with other distros iv tried there is always atleast a few updates needing to be done after install.
3. is kpackagekit the fedora gui package manager ? i dont see any others.
4. i want to upgrade to nvidia drivers, but i think i am missing a non-free repo or something. when i enter: yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 i get messages stating "no package" i get the same message with yum install nvidia-settings.i also tried this: LANG=C yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree info akmod-nvidia but it sayes repo not found.
I downloaded OpenSUSE 11.2 x86. Recordered,ran. I selected language (polish) and chose "Install" (originally "instaluj ). Installer booted, but I can't install because "linuxrc" was ran. Linuxrc can't find install disk, repo. I'll install with local DVD-RAM drive.
I have successfully installed fedora 10 and have rpmfusion in my /home/ directory. i don't know how to edit yum.conf to make yum install from this local repo. i tried once. But when i tried to install vlc i got an error saying some lib****** files are missing and missing dependencies.
All of these audit messages is from one su - and root password at a gnome-terminal.This started happening from some update from koji in the last 18 hrs or so.It take 20-25 sec from su - to get the password prompt.
I wasn't paying proper attention when adding a repo to yast and need to find the file were the info is saved to delete this. The problem is that whenever i use yast it comes up with an error code saying that it can't find the data for the 'problem' repo. Have tried zypper rm but that comes up with a similar error advising that the data is in a format that was not expected. My thinking is to track the file were the yast repo source details are saved, delete this and then just add the repos that i use back.

I know I have seen instructions for this before but I can't find them searching.I have a fresh install of Fedora 13x86_64 and need to temporarily enable 32 bit testing repositories so I can grab 32 bit Wine and Firefox (need flash to work in FF). Can someone please tell me how to add these?
I'm using a system which is based around 9.04 and yes I know this is not the latest and greatest however the softwares in question hasn't been confirmed on the newest version of ubuntu. However I was doing a new build and noticed when I went to do and apt-get install there didn't appear to be any repo's I'm just wondering have the repo's for 9.04 been turned off??
I just installed the repo for Go-OO (an OpenOffice derivative). Apparently I didn't go about installing the actual Go-OO program from the repo correctly (i.e., I missed something crucial to actually run it), so I went ahead and reinstalled Open Office proper until I figure out exactly what I'm doing. (N.B: I'm still quite new to Linux and yum.)
Is there a way I can list yum installs strictly by their repository? That is, is there a command I could use to simply list every install that came from the "GoOo" repo? I'm aware that yum list installed returns repo info, but I'd rather be able to list by one repo at a time because (a) I want to very thoroughly clear off everything from the GoOo repo, and (b) it would definitely make it easier in the event that I have to perform any blanket removes in the future.I'm unable to find any single or short string of commands that does this, so I'm guessing either the answer is no or I'm overlooking something ridiculously simple.
I have a ps3, and I want to put Fedora Core 11 on it. But i don't know how. (i've already downloaded the Fedora Core 11 PPC)I can't find tutorials for the install of this version. (Sorry, I don't speak english very well) In my PS3 , I used Yellow Dog Linux (it is too slow, and bugged), Ubuntu 8.04 (lol, it dont support HD resolutions).I use my PS3 in the same monitor of my PC. (). 22" LG Monitor.
I downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso and placed it on a 16GB USB drive using the Windows LiveUSB creator which had downloaded when I first download Fedora 11.The USB boots fine and I choose the language and the the keyboard layout. I tell it the image is on the USB drive it displays /images/install.img as the image.
However after going through all the steps up to choosing where I want it throws an error saying cannot find image #1 on the hard disk.Now if I boot again and instead of choosing the USB drive I hit F2 and then choose the USB drive then /Images then the install.img and press O.K. it says it isn't and just cycles around the choose drive/image.
First time linux user, am trying to install a fresh full install of Fedora 12 dvd i686 version. I have two identical sata drives, which fedora fails to identify. Have reset the bios, changed settings in the bios, still not finding them. I have an asus av8-x motherboard, with a athlon dual core processer.
I recently upgraded successfully from F8 to F10 with no problems. I have a question about repo compatabilities. The livna repo is still enabled after the upgrade. Is is compatable with the rpmfusion and fedora repos? should I disable the livna repo? will this cause any problems?
I installed VirtualBox (and the virtualbox repo) a few months ago and it works brilliantly. The other day it informed me there was an update available. I downloaded: VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.2_56127_fedora11-1.x86_64.rpm from [URL]
Why doesn't yum update find these new versions of VirtualBox? Is the original repo file out of date? Here it is:
I have been trying now for 3 days to install Fedora 15 on my computer. I have Windows 7 installed and have created a free partition for this install. When I am installing I get to the repository selection part and I get only 3 options (Fedora 15, Fedora 15 Testing, Fedora 15 Updates), by default the Fedora 15 and Fedora 15 Updates are selected. There is no option for DVD Repository and if I click add repository and select DVD it says no repository found. Furthermore, if I proceed with the 2 default repositories checked off it takes about 8 hours to download everything online and then towards the end it says it couldn't retrieve a file and exit installation. How to use the DVD to get all the packages so that my install doesn't keep taking 8 hours to fail?
This is the 64bit version I am trying to install, system specs: Intel Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz 16.0 GB Ram ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series 1 TB Harddrive The original DVD I got from the direct download. I also downloaded via torrent to see if that worked and got the same results.
basically put a new hard drive in my old computer and wanted to install fedora on it, downloaded fedora 12 dvd iso (3ish gb in size) have burnt it to a dvd disc, turned my laptop on and set it to boot from cd drive, restarted it, it reads the disc and displays the following message:
ISOLINUX 3.75 209-04-16 ETCD Copyright (C) 1994-2009 H.Peter Anvin et al Could not find kernel image: Linux boot:_
The uderscore is flashing and i can type stuff in but have no idea what to type in to find the kernel image, or why it cant find the kernel image.
I'm having trouble installing Fedora 11 using the URL method. When I put in a F11 netinstall CD, or even Disc 1, I press tab on the first option and add "askmethod" to the end of the text. Each time I point the installer to my local FTP and press enter after typing in the FTP url, the installer just hangs there. I've even tried deleting ALL the files from the F11 folder on my FTP server and downloaded ALL the files at: ftp://ftp.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/fedora/...edora/i386/os/
Still...the same thing. When I pointed the installer to: ftp://ftp.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/fedora/...edora/i386/os/ Everything worked fine, albeit slow as it was DL from the NCSU FTP server. Am I doing something wrong with my FTP server? It is anon, so there is no authentication issues.
I have an install of slack64 13.37. I am unable to find grub in the repo via slackpkg search grub. It doesn't seem to be in the release package list either. Ditto the extra and testing repo. Has it been removed?
