I download the Fedora 12 and updated from Fedora 11. After installing successful and restart, I can't find Fedora 12 selection on the Grub. I try to write it on the grub.conf, but it's still can't start the Fedora 12. code...
I just installed JEE (not openjdk) and tryed to use both eclipse's galileo 32 and 64 bits (im under fedora 11 x64) but none is working i don't even get any message nor a single window, nothing. I'm really lost, what should i do?
I wanted to change screen resolution manually from xorg.conf and apparently a missed it up and my fedora core stucks and wont start, how can i start fedora in command line (so that i can remove xorg.conf), i tryed ctrl+alt+f1, ctrl+alt+backspace and still cant start in command prompt.
Downloaded the torrent first, burned to a new DVD-RW, and tried all install options I could think of. Then downloaded to file, burned to another new DVD-RW, same result. This morning I downloaded the Live CD, and it got all the way to the blue screen just before the login page, and stuck there. I finally gave up and reinstalled Fedora 10 again on my drive. The problen seemed to be with a missing or corrupted package, although I can't remember exactly remember which one. My machine is a custom one, Nvidia Gforce, and an Elite Group MB. F10 runs fine, no problems at all. Is this a commom problem with 11?
I installed Fedora 11, but i can't do programing teh fedora seems not to include anything IDE for free like previous version
I can not search on installed desktop what software were included it asks me to connect to the Internet to view the installers and install new things I'd also like to compile latex to have a Qt IDE installed but none are there for me
I had F15 installed in my hard drive, I liked it very much and everything was going great until I installed that damned XP in another partition (same HDD). Now here is the problem. This XP does not let me choose the OS I wish to run at the boot-time and just boots itself. I am a beginner with Linux OS.
I've just updated my desktop to F13 using preupgrade but now grub won't boot it. The upgrade seemed to go OK, and none of the disk partitions should have changed as far as I'm aware, but now I get an error VFS: Cannot open root device "UUID=xxx" or unknown block(0,0).
I'm new to these forums. I'm coming from using Ubuntu for a couple of years and now I'm trying to switch to Fedora.
I installed F10 yesterday and all went well, more or less. The system used to freeze randomly but after updating, everything seemed to work fine (I haven't tried audio yet, though).
I have an X1250 integrated graphics system that's working fine in Ubuntu. After playing around with F10 for a while I decided to download and install the latest ATI drivers from AMD's site. The installation posed no problems, but when I reboot the system it will come to a black screen at some point and freeze there.
I searched the web a little and came to this: http://www.fedorafaq.org/#radeon, but I'm not sure if that's current or old news. If it's current and those ATI drivers can't be installed, I'd appreciate some help about removing them.
I'm trying to install Fedora 10 from a USB memory stick on which i've installed Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso and, early in the process of configuring the installation, i get messages about both my IDE hard drives having unrecognizable partition tables:
"The partition table on device sda (... my disk data ...) was unreadable. To create new partitions it must be initialized, causing the loss of ALL DATA on this drive."
Same for sdb.
My PC currently runs Fedora Core 4 (yes i know i should have gotten around to upgrading my OS earlier) and yes it recognizes both hard drives just fine.
The answers I've found on the web suggest to backup my drives and repartition. I'm not too hot on that "solution".
explain why a F4 partition table is not recognized by F10?
BTW, I've recently upgraded my motherboard, processor, DVD drive, regrouped both my IDE drives on the same bus, ... I consider it a miracle F4 still runs on this PC (although F4 does not support the motherboard's graphics card, so no X11).
I have recently updated my Fedora 11 installation which replaced my older 167 kernel with the newer 217 kernel. However, the 217 kernel will not boot completely. It will show the splash loading screen, and then will switch to a rapidly blinking cursor. This cursor blinks for about 5 seconds and then disappears. I can access terminals using ALT+F2, etc. I can log in to these terminals, but init commands do not complete (something about a binary handler). I'm not sure if something is conflicting with an update to X or what is wrong. The most recent kernel that I managed to get to work was Kernel 167, however I cannot find this kernel for download.

i get the following error when i try to install autoten: root@Tex dan]# rpm -Uvh [URL]... curl: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'dnmouse.org' error: skipping [URL]... - transfer failed from reading other posts, it sounds like a dns error, but i don't know what to do to fix it.
I am trying to install Fedora12 on a usb hard-drive, the first problem I encountered was that the hard-drive would not boot stating "kernel panic: unable to create root device", this is just using the standard fedora 12 install and mostly clicking next (although I add my vista to the grub and tell grub to install to /dev/sdc which is the location of my usb hdd).
I have also tried livecdtousb (wont boot in stick and wont recognize removable hd as removable)
I have tried setting up disc encryption and installing with no LVM.
The drive has this same problem with ubuntu 9.10 however ubuntu 8.10 installs perfectly and I am guessing earlier versions of fedora will too. The problem is that I would like the kernel features of Fedora 12 (mainly modesetting) without this issue.
I have played about with grub and quite like disabling LVM and using the uuid of the drive to select the root partition, my boot partition has 500mb, I have a 2gb swap space 50gb ext4 root partition & 27gb fat32 partition code...
I am a linux newbie. I had dual boot fedora 9 with windows XP before. Now I decided to change to fedora 11. I choose the option Replace existing linux while installing the fedora 11. My windows used to be in C drive while my linus in D drive. So I thought it would replace the D drive and remain dual boot.
However, after I reboot the computer, I realize that it can only boot linux. My windows partition appear as a File System in linux. code...
To install OpenOffice you can use yum like: connect to the internet open a console su - root password yum install openoffice.org-base openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-writer (all on one line)
This will install the man packages for Openoffice. To see all packages available for OpenOffice use:
yum list openoffice*
I am running fedora 14.
I have no openoffice icons on the desktop, or items in the menus.
I've installed the Awesome WM using "sudo yum install awesome" (as described here https://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Awesome-3-fedora ). I can also log into awesome, but nothing works! I can open the menu on the top left of the screen, but when I click on e.g. "Open Terminal", nothing happens. Same thing for all other menu options except "Shut down" which logs me out of Awesome. I've also tried the terminal shortcut, but nothing works.
I've updated a Fedora Core 3 server to Fedora 11. The old FC3 had an external modem attached for when we felt like dialing in for a ppp connection. I've replicated login.config, mgetty.config and dialin.config from the old server and had to put a RS232-to-USB adapter on the modem. I've test connected to the server and everything look fine. I'm have a difficult time starting the Getty session from inittab.code...
My Firefox used to start instantly, or at least near instant, but since yesterday it took about 30 sec to launch. Opening subsequent windows is near instant, but once all windows are closed it would take a long time to open again.
When I open it up in a terminal, it has absolutely no error message, clean start up and shutdown.
I turned up the CPU clock speed from 1.2GHz to 2.0GHz and it doesn't seem to help. Other programs starts fine too, so I kind of ruled out performance issue.
Yesterday I also tinkered with compiz settings and also installed the cairo dock and some media codecs. But I can't pinpoint when does it happen exactly, I also struggle to draw any relationship if there is any. And if it matters Firefox is 3.6.10 and Ubuntu is 10.04.
An little annoying problem. When i start firefox it starts in fullscreen mode. So the tabs to close, minimise, and the 3'rd to maximise have disappeared. On windows you hit f10 i believe to get these back. How do you do in firefox?
I upgraded from F11(x86_64) to F12 with no reported errors. (expected an update session to follow, but it didn't.) Tried a manual "yum update" and it aborted with a notice that libssl.so.8 was not found (required by python-2.6.2). I didn't find anything useful at wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq.
The DVD installs python-2.6.2-2 (8/21/09) and openssl-1.0.0-0.10.beta3 (10/16/09). /usr/lib/libssl.so.10 is a symbolic link to libssl.1.0.0. libssl.so.8 is not found, really. I thought of replacing openssl with one from F11 but it was required by too many packages - couldn't remove.
I tried to find a later rpm of python, but couldn't locate any Fedora directories with individual packages.
I've searched the web and the forums. What am I missing?
I have fedora version 8 with mysql 5.0.45 installed. I have also installed drupal. Recently drupal gave me an error "error code 28". When i checked it out it seemed to be with the db. When i tried to created a db (for testing purposes) in root...i wasn't able to. so then i tried to restart mysql ...it stopped but unfortunately i have not been able to get mysql back up...i get a message saying "Timeout error occurred trying to start MySql Daemon".
I'm attempting to install F11 on my desktop. I am unable to complete the installation because the X environment for anaconda fails to start and instead the installation reverts to text mode (in which I cannot seem to to a custom disk partitioning layout for the installation, which I have to be able to do). This was not a problem with the Alpha or Beta, but the preview and now the final release have both had this problem.

I have just installed F10 via DVD download onto my Dell Desktop with Nvidia GE6800 graphics card and twin LCD Monitors. I have configured Dual Boot with Grub (Windows XP Home and F10). After installing and configuring the correct driver from Nvidia I am now observing a strange problem when booting into Fedora.
On cold boot the system starts and gets to Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... and then freezes, however if I then warm boot Ctrl Alt Del the system boots into F10 with no problem. I had to disable the latest Kernel update because I couldn't start graphical interface with it so I only boot into the original Kernel.
Posting from Splashtop as i can't get past keytouch-apid in the boot process,Yeah me bad so i would like to disable it so i can complete the process.Using the interactive startup seemed the way to go but how does one get there before udev starts up?Or is there something else i could try.
