Fedora :: Switch From X86 To X86_64 Without Reinstalling?

Feb 25, 2009

i just installed fedora 9, but realized that i had installed the x86 version (it came on a dvd in linux format magazine). i didn't know that the "only-3gb-of-ram-for-x86" applied to linux, as my previous machines i used it on had under 3gb anyway. so anyway, is there a way to switch to the x86_64 version without downloading and reinstalling it? kinda like ubuntu's distro upgrade (not sure if other distros have it?)

Fedora :: Switch From The I686 Kernel To I386 Without Reinstalling The System?

Aug 2, 2011

One of our F14 machines was originally set-up with the i386 Kernel. I found out it had a kernel crash and the person tried to fix it by reinstalling the kernel, unfortunately they installed i686. Now some of our software that was setup to work with i386 is not cooperating. Is there a way to switch from the i686 kernel to i386 without reinstalling the system?

Fedora :: 13 X86_64 Nouveau KVM Switch - Video Res Drops Back To 1024x768 Instead Of 1200x1024

Jul 8, 2010

I have a server with Fedora 13 x86_64 installed that uses gnome as the desktop. Recently I purchased a generic KVM switch for my office. When I connect this to the server the video res drops back to 1024x768 instead of 1200x1024. I did some research and apparently Fedora 13 no longer uses the Xorg.conf file for display setup, it detects the hardware in the fly when you boot and uses the appropriate drivers (unless one exists in the /etc/X11 folder).

The specs for the KVM say that it can do way more than 1200x1024 so I can't see a problem with that. Also I tested it with a windows installation and I was able to obtain 1200x1024 resolution. The video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS and the current driver being loaded is the nouveau according to lspci. When connected to the KVM the display widget in gnome wont detect the monitor or graphics card anymore. I used system-config-display to change the display settings and it created this Xorg.conf file -

Fedora :: Restoring Grub After Reinstalling Windows?

Aug 4, 2010

My Windows installation had a problem and I had to reinstall Windows. The problem now is that I need to get grub back so that I can boot into Fedora. I'm using a Fedora 11 LiveCD I had sitting around. Here are the results of the command most of the way down the first page:


Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 32301 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000f09ab


I'm tempted to try the grub-install command quoted near the end of the thread, but I don't want to do anything that will hose the system.

Fedora Installation :: Reinstalling FC 10 On A Dual Boot Ubuntu - Machine ?

Mar 13, 2009

I'm trying to reinstall FC10 after a foolish mistake I've done that costed me operation of my Fedora partition (uninstalling SELinuxpolicycoreutils).

I have a dual boot Ubuntu - FC 10 machine and delete my old fedora partition with GParted. However when I try to install FC 10 from the live CD using the option "Use free space on selected drives and create default layout" I get the error message:

Could not allocate requested partitions:

Partitioning failed:

The following errors occurred with your partitioning:

You have not defined a root partition (/), which is required for installation of Fedora to continue.

This can happen if there is not enough space on your hard drive(s) for the installation.

Press 'OK' to choose a different partitioning option.

This is the output of fdisk -l :

Partition table entries are not in disk order

My last option is erase everything from my drive including the Ubuntu partition and start over the installation, something that I would like to avoid.

Fedora Installation :: Software Update - Fedora ( - Nvidia Driver Doesn't Work

Sep 1, 2010

Fedora ( I installed that update, during the installation process it said that it had to remove three packages, one of them was kmod nvidia for the old kernel (Fedora ( the update finished installing the new kernel, I restarted the system and Nvidia did not load. (I assume because Update manager removed the old nvidia? But I also assumed that a new version would be installed automatically?)I received the following Boot messages:


Entering non-interactive startup
Starting monitoring for VG vg_user1: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_user1" monitored


I'm confused, if Update Manager removed kmod nvidia, then why does yum say it is installed? And why doesn't the new kernel update work with that version? Or should I install a driver version for that particular kernel? I've read while searching that I need to install a kmod-nvidia for that particual kernel version and that I should login to my previous kernel until that happens, is that the problem I'm having?

Why don't rpmfusion and fedoraproject release the kmod-nvidia and kernel updates at the same time to avoid problems such as this? Does anyone know how long does it usually take for rpmfusion to release the new kmod-nvidia driver for the latest kernel?

Fedora :: Codec Installation For X86_64 F13?

May 27, 2010

On a fresh installation of F12 and F13 I have had issues getting the multimedia codecs working properly. I have followed the tutorial that I was pointed to and it doesn't seem to work..


There is a note in there that reads as follows:"NOTE: There is significant variation depending on your architecture (i386, x86_64, ppc). This step is really only beneficial to 32bit i386 users."

What is the step for the x86_64 users? Are there special codecs I can't find on the net that I need to be installing? Should these just be extracted in the /usr/lib64/codecs directory?

Fedora Installation :: Slow YUM In F13 X86_64

I am posting from my brand new F13 x86_64 system. I am, however, having some problems to get the system fully online with the software I use (I couldn't even update) because YUM (terminal, yumex, etc) is painfully slow. I am behind a really fast connection so I know the problem lies outside.

Is there some method to force YUM to use the fastest repo available? Ok, or at least to try another one?

Fedora X86/64bit :: /dev/mem Not Created On 12 X86_64?

I created an EC2 instance with Fedora 12 x86_64 about a month ago. I have been getting an hourly system log error:mcelog: Cannot open /dev/mem for DMI decoding: No such file or directoryI was ignoring it because I did not notice any implications, until now.I am running MongoDB on this machine, and reads from /dev/urandom are failing. I know reading from /dev/urandom shouldn't fail, so I think this system error may be the underlying problem.Are these two issues connected?If so, is there a way to fix this without having to completely reinstall the OS?

Fedora X86/64bit :: F14 X86_64 Does Not Recognize 4GB Ram?

Feb 3, 2011

I am a total Noob, I couln't find the answer to my question anywhere. I need to run Matlab with 4GB of RAM and I have been told Fedora 64bits is the best environement for that. I downloaded the iso for the Fedora 14 x86_64. I first booted using the live CD and was surprised to see that only 3.4GB are recognized. The computer is a HP with dual core 64bits intel cpus and the motherboard is supposed to handle until 8GB of RAM, I have currently 2 x 2GB installed.

I thought it might have been a problem from the live CD and I proceeded to install, but still same problem, only 3.4GB recognized. Most threads I have found mention the PAE kernel but from what I understand this only applies to 32bits Fedoras ?
