General :: Difference Between Fedora Core 4 And Fedora Core 14?
Jan 12, 2011
I am in school for my CIS degree and the book I am using this session covers Windows XP and Fedora Core 4. I am having trouble finding & downloading Fedora Core 4. My question is: Is there a big enough difference between Fedora Core 4 and Fedora Core 14 that I would not be able to use 14 instead of 4?
I have created a virtual machine of a system running Fedora Core 4 and I need to upgrade it to Fedora Core 10. Based on what I have read, it iis possible so I started theupgrade process. I get an error message saying that /dev/hda6 (my root paritition does not exist) even though it does.
Does the installer need to read a label from /etc/fstab? I executed tune2fs -L / /dev/hda6 amd ,and added LABEL=/ for the corresponding entry for fstab. but the FEDORA CORE 10 is still giving the same problems for the installation process. Should I upgrade to an intermediate verson like Fedora Core 7 first?
I recently read in a forum that by default the Linux kernel only activates one of two cores in a dual core processor. Searching online gave one option to find out and that was the mpstat command. I therefore ran the command and got the following output.As the result says, it shows only 1 cpu. I was wondering what I could do to activate both cores in my machine, and whether doing so was going to cause me any problems.
I've a program that launches new processes, and wait for them to die before it exits. So, for example, my program is a process, and it launches 3 more processes, and when the 3 child processes end, it will exit.
As you see, at end of the example, the program used a total number of 4 processes.
1 - Now, I'm running this program in a CPU with 4 cores. This means that the program used each core for each process?
I have a command line OCR program called OCR Shop XTR (Vividata corp) that I am using on a system with a 6-core AMD chip. I changed the bios so that the 6-cores were activated, but htop shows me that while the program is running, I am only getting activity on one core (the program maxes out the one core with consistent usage between 97% and 100%).
I have read that many programs are not written to take advantage of multiple core cpu's. However, I am just hoping that there is some way to get this program to take advantage of the extra cores. Does anyone know of a way to invoke programs from the command line which would spread the workload out among additional cores?
Here is the output of uname -a:Linux linux 18.104.22.168-1.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-02-21 10:34:10 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/LinuxAnd here is the output for one of the cores from cat /proc/cpuinfo:processor : 5
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD cpu family : 16 model : 10 model name : AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1100T Processor stepping : 0
When i viewed the cpuinfo file (using command: vi /proc/cpuinfo ), i found that there are listings for 4 processors( i.e 4 sets of listings each one starting with item : processor - 0 ; processor -1 and so on..). Each of them have similar data among which one is "cpu cores" which is 2 for all.. How do i make sense of this data.. 4 processors with 2 cores each ? Also, what could be this hardware be classified as : dual core? quad core ?...
P.s: each of these processor listings also have an item called "siblings" which is 2 for all... Just thought i'll include this here because i felt it may be relevant to this question..
I have now installed Wheezy on two different hard drives and in each case it seems only one CPU of my dual core CPU computer is recognized. System Monitor, Gkrellm and lscpu show just one when prior to the new install the old Wheezy showed both CPU's. I have put the hard drive into two other computers with dual core CPU's and all show just one CPU.
Interestingly System Profiler and Benchmark (hardinfo?) > Devices > Processors now show a large amount of processor infomation when with the old Wheezy I would only see both CPU's listed and nothing else.
Assume someone bind a particular process to a particular CPU core(In multi core machine) by using sched_setaffinity() like functions. Then how we can get that process running core id and CPU core utilisation of that process on that running CPU core(Pragmatically or by a Linux command)?.
Im trying to dual boot windows xp on my computer already running fedora core 6. I have some experience with dual booting- i had a windows xp laptop, and now it runs both windows and ubuntu. Ive done some reasearch, but still not clear on how exactly I should go about dual booting xp on fedora.
I forgot to mention above I do not have internet access on that computer. I do, however, have a laptop (windows xp) that i can download things on and burn on a disc if needed. it has internet. If you know of any solution to run programms such as visual studio and dreamweaver on linux which dosnt require dual booting(i tried wine but didnt work for me)
I need to upgrade one of our systems from its current distribution, Fedora Core 7, to the most recent version distribution, release 5.4, of the CentOS operating system. Can I do an in-place upgrade of the operating system without any adverse side-effects? Are there any issues that I should be concerned with before proceeding?
i have a own internet cafe that use a Fedora Core 8 as a dhcp and proxy server, and i had two normal users that created in my server to monitoring the billing of client who use the internet. But was delete those users and create a new one and restarted the server. and the problem is when booting process running suddenly hang and cannot continue but the server doesn't showing any errors and cannot continue the booting process.....
This is my first post and I figured why not start it off with a question! First off, thanks for this site, I have a LOT of reading to do!
Secondly, my question is, what is the easiest way to upgrade my live server from Fedora core 4 to Fedora core 14 (latest stable version).
I have a box that is live with a couple of small active forums on it where the upgrade would take place.
I want to upgrade my box to stay up to date with the latest release of Fedora linux to take advantage of any enhancements or security fixes that has been implemented since version 4.
My box is colocated at a data center. Would it be best to upgrade from a CD or remotely? I have read there is quite a risk upgrading the OS remotely and some issues like broken files or dependencies could occur.
just did Red Hat Linux (Fedora Core 2) install. It's the only OC on the machine. Boots and everything seems to work just fine. Everything but the operator, that is!
I want to install FireFox and Thunderbird and AVG (free) antivirus so I first went to the Mozilla site for a download, only to discover that the best way to install is as part of a Package Manager.
Fair enough - but what is a package manager? Part of the distro? Where do I get one for these items?
UPDATE - I figured out the Package manager thing and no , FireFox is not an option, nor is Thunderbird or any antivirus.
If I can't get a package manager, the site tells me that I can install with me as the only user by downloading and typing in a couple of commands (Unzip and run, I think). But I get a report that I need a something or other file (library?) for it to run. How do I find that file and why would I be the only user? Surely as root I can set it up for all users can't I?
I guess the short(er) question is: How does a new user download and install a program onto a new setup without a package manager?
Question 2 - this install is for a class and the instructor wants screen prints as proof I'm doing certain operations. How do I get a screen print of, say, a history listing and can I save the screen print or view into a file for submission?
I've been thinking of going into opensuse for a long time and now with KDE 4.4 is finally out - I'm going to do it. The installation shouldn't be a problem but I wonder how I can upgrade to kde 4.4, since opensuse 11.2 will have 4.3 by default? I saw in the documentation to add these repos:
# Core packages: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit.../openSUSE_11.2 # Community: Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2_KDE4_Factory_Desktop # Playground: Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Playground/openSUSE_11.2_KDE4_Factory_Desktop
whats the difference between core, community and playground? And isnt there "stable" repos for the KDE 4.4 release? And are there a repo with amarok 2.3 Beta?
I am using HP G62 Notebook running i3 with intel(R) HD graphics card. I have installed fedora 13 and the display is not so good as it used to be when i used my old laptop and desktop effects require me to have 3D acceleration.
