I have an older laptop on which I have installed Fedora Core 10 (18.104.22.168-117.fc10.i686). I am using a Retail Plus Mini Wireless USB Adapter. I have scanned this forum and someone mentioned that support for this adapter should come "out of the box" for FC10. I have a fair amount of experience with Linux command line configuration but am by no means an expert. I have absolutely no experience, however, with wireless.
NB that via iwconfig I get the output below which is giving information about my (currently for now unencrypted) SSID called "activity_logged". Pardon my ignorance but wouldn't this mean that I have wireless enabled and if so how does one access it through the command line? I would also eventually like to go back to encrypted status and access that via command line.
I just tried to update to kernel 22.214.171.124-170.2.24.fc10 (x86_64) at the suggestion of the gnome update widget, and the process hung. A bunch of other things were updating at the same time, many of which were related to audacity or wine.
I'm not sure just what was being updated, because the option to review which updates are available does not work - when I click on it, nothing happens, but when I take the other choice (install all updates), I take pot luck. It would be nice to be able to choose which programs to update, and to be able to upgrade the kernel independently, but I don't seem to be able to do that at the moment.
i've gotten my fedora 12 to the point where i can run python3 scripts from command line and can call up python 2.6.2 idle with the command 'idle' from command line. what command will call up python3 (3.1.2 to be exact) idle?
I made a live USB memory stick / pendrive with Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 using my desktop computer. I want to install / update my netbook that has no network function yet. I booted the desktop with the pendrive & ran update manager. I want to update the kernel so I will have the driver that will operate my netbook ethernet.Acer AOD260 has Ethernet Controller: AR8151 v1.1 Fast Ethernet, Atheros Communications & Network Controller: Broadcom 4727 (rev 01)and will not work from the current release of 10.04 (too new) but there are supposed to be drivers in the newer kernels.
Running Update Manager I get a box labeled "Debconf on ubuntu" & says "Configuring grub-pc". There is an entry box that says "linux command line:" & is empty. When I press the help button I get the message "The following Linux command line was extracted from /etc/default/grub of the 'kopt' parameter in GRUB Legacy's menu.lst. Please verify that is correct, and modify it if necessary.The installer is hanging, Preconfiguring packages ..., probably waiting for a response, but I have no idea what to do.
I recently updated, and now when I boot it only goes as far as grub command line. There is no grub menu. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with only Ubuntu installed -- no dual boot, no weird partition schemes. Originally installed Ubuntu 09.04 on this computer, upgraded a couple times and it currently has (had) 10.04.1 LTS running. The update should have upgraded from kernel 2.6.32-23 to 2.6.32-24. I can boot with a live CD and mount the hard drive. The drive seems fine, so it appears to be simply a grub config issue. I have to boot with live cd to get online to check for potential solutions. So I'm taking some notes on how to use grub.
I'd like to say I'm very impressed with Fedora 11. I'm a long time Linux user and I've tried many distros. But, I usually keep only the best on my laptop. For a long time that was Ubuntu but, I think Fedora 11 has made some key improvements over Ubuntu and I'm eager to switch. The problem is: I haven't been able to run Fedora as anything other than on the Live CD. Everything works perfectly and it installs but, when I reboot, Grub begins. Instead of booting, however, Grub drops into its minimal shell and gives me a command line.
I've tried installing it a number of ways now and have read much about the problems with Ext4 on Grub and took special care to see that Grub has its own, separate, /boot ext3 partition. Even then, no luck. My hardware should work fine. I've got an HP DV-5 with 4GB RAM, AMD Turion 64-bit dual-core @ 2 Ghz, and an IDE 250GB hard drive. I'm working with the 64-bit Fedora 11 Live disc with KDE as the Gui.
I was forced to reinstall fc10 a couple of days back and from them the bootingup is really slow(takes more then 1 minute to show login screen). before the reinstall, it was quite fast. i dont know what went wrong.
I am trying to install systemc v2.1.0 on fc10 with gcc 4.3.2. I have gone through the previous posts for systemc installation with gcc 4.3.2 and have installed the patch , added the following headers in systemc-2.2.0/src/sysc/utils/sc_utils_ids.cpp
#include "string.h" #include "cstdlib"
but it did not work out.This is what I get The complete installation process is as follows
$tar xvzf systemc-2.1.v1.tgz $cd systemc-2.1.v1 $wget http://www.kix.in/misc/patch_systemc-2.1.v1-gcc4-osx // patch from post $patch -p0<patch_systemc-2.1.v1-gcc4-osx
installing IE on FC10 as I need it to access company email I installed wine first as #yum install wine* then I installed cabextract as #yum install cabextract after that I downloaded IEs4linux and run the script ad $./ies4linux I got the following message in the terminal "IEs4Linux 2 is developed to be used with recent Wine versions (0.9.x). It seems that you are using an old version. It's recommended that you update your wine to the latest version (Go to: [URL])" and in the install window script couldn't download flash and it seems to be hang every thing is stopped and I didn't get any message in terminal or in installation window.
I'd like to try a clean install instead of an upgrade from FC10 to FC11. What is a good way of getting the list of all packages that were installed through yum, and how do I feed that list to yum on a newly installed FC11?
i recently did some changes to my hard disk partitonand now linux is in hd0,6when i booted my pc,i got the grub commmand line interfaceso,I think that i need to edit grub.conf in fedora 14then at cmd i did this:
grub> root (hd0,6) grub> kernel (hd0,6)/vmlinuz file not found
I have just loaded the FC9 onto a HP/Compaq D510 2.8Ghz/Intel graphic card. Everything when as expected during the install but on login I get the following set of errors. The follow Panels encounters a problem.
I installed fedora on my second hdd, the other one had xp before fedora, now in grub it shows xp as other and wont boot into it, just hangs there. SDC is an external drive and sdb is the xp drive as you can tell by the filesystem.

I am new to Fedora 10 and encountered the following problem. I installed FC10 on an external eSATA hard drive (sdb) on my laptop which already has some other Linux distros on sda. I used a DVD that came with the Fedora 10 Bible, so I can assume that the DVD had no problems. The installation went OK and I got no error messages. I added the following lines to the menu.lst file of the distro that I use to boot all my distros.
I would like to try out fc10 on an old, k6-2 pc. Last night I tried to download the dvd, but firefox 'completed' the download with only 1.2/~3xg, and of course it didn't work.
I am trying a test net installation in VirtualBox, so far so good.
However, I would rather have a more complete installation on hand and I'm looking at the full install cd's --there are 6 of them.
Are all 6 required for a minimal install, or could I get by with one (or two, etc)? For example, with debian installation cds you can use just the first one -- the rest are just a complete set of packages for everything +kitchen sink.
I upgraded to fedora 10 using yum but i have a problem, the installation went fine and after rebooting i got a login screen. I typed in my user name and password and after a second it returns to the login screen. Im sure the username and password are correct. If i type in another password i get an error message. So how can i log in?
This is what i did to upgrade to Fc10:
Then i got an upgrade wizzard and selected Fedora 10 and than reboot.
In the grub menu only one kernel is present which is the Fc10 so couldn't use the old one.
I've tried to edit the kernel with single for single user that works gives me a command line but im just not experienced enough to figure out how i can use the command line to login.
I have a home network with 2 WINXP machines and one I am trying to load FC10 on. If I get FC10 to work, I will convert the others to FC10. I am trying to access the WINXP machines through my LAN. I have installed samba. I have gone through a lot of places to try to configure samba. Several places say I have to set the security level on the ethernet card using system-config-securitylevel. When I enter this in terminal, I get command not found. I checked with yum and it is installed. I have tried using the menus but cannot find it anywhere. I can see the FC workgroup from one of the WINXP machines but I cannot look into it. It says I don't have the right permissions. I would like to set it so I don't need a userid/password at all. Can I do this?
My laptop is dual-boot with Windows XP and FC10 co-existing. Yesterday, I wanna re-install FC10, so I formated(deleted) all linux partitions in Windows XP. Disaster happened when i rebooted computer: the computer cannot startup at all?Now, I don't know how to deal with it. I wanna know: what can i do to start up the computer into Windows? In my opinion, computer should work well without one system in dual-boot mode. If you format C: drive on which windows are installed, for instance, the computer can boot into FC10 normally. Why it die deleting FC10?
I've been running FC10 with all updates and had downloaded the FC11 DVD. Yesterday I upgraded to FC 11 using the DVD and it appeared that everything went fine. However when I tried to do ayum updateI got the following error. There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named yum
install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is:
2.6 (r26:66714, Mar 17 2009, 11:44:14) [GCC 4.4.0 20090313 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.26)]
go to the yum faq at: [URL] I'm not sure what to do next. I also noticed that all my previously configured repositories are lost.
Yesterday i have installed F14 and then went to the comand line to update the system via yum update. It was about 860MB of updates in 430 packages. The strange thing is that only one package was a delta rpm and all other were normal rpm. Is Fedora giving up on presto or it needs some special configuration?
I am trying to boot kubutu from FC10's grub. FC10 is in MBR, installed kubuntu without grub. Is that a problem for me now? I mean, should I need to install kubutu grub in order to boot from FC10 grub? I tried with these methods but nothing works:
