  1. i now have $TERM=linux but it seems to break vim. when i open a file i get crazy garbled text, and when i write i don't get anything. does anyone know why using the linux terminal doesn't play nice?
  2. nevermind...after all this time wondering all i had to do is $ TERM=linux. geez sorry.
  3. Hey guys. when i was using rh9 i'd lauch my terminal then i'd right click to get to the settings then i'd change my session to a linux console session. I liked using linux console because of the vim color coding. Comments were much easier to read on a black background because the color of the comment was changed to a teal/auqa looking color instead of the darker blue color of the default scheme. i can't seem to get that to work on fedor2. ideally i'd like to use that linux console as my default, so i'm wondering: a. does anyone know what i'm talking about b. if so, how would i get that done? if you are running rh9 go to your terminal and right click over the terminal, and this should bring up a settings menu. If you go settings->session you should see something like linux console or linux session - select it. now open a file that has comments #comment or /** comment */ - the color scheme is a little different and a lot more friendlier on the eyes when you have a black background. do i sound nuts? or does anyone know what i'm talking about? thanks for the help, john
  4. hey zony, yeah i tried that. but i get bash: /dev/dsp: No such device this is odd. i don't understand what happened. i had sound on RH9, and now i don't. i'll have to do some more research to see if i can remedy this problem. maybe my soundcard isn't supported? however, i don't think that's the issue because the soundcard-detection found my card. any ideas? john
  5. This is odd. My soundcard is detected when i run the soundcard detector, but I get no sound. There is a speaker in my panel that seems to control the sound, but i'm unable to increase the volume. As soon as i do the level goes back down to zero. I tried running aumix, but i get davalos# aumix aumix: error opening mixer Then i tried opening the volume control from the main menu and i get Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found. I'm not sure what it could be, but if anyone else has experienced this i'd appreciate them sharing their solution. In the meantime i'm going to try and reinstall aumix to see if that does anything for me. Thanks, john
  6. UPDATE: i did it!!! woo hoo! i'm running fedora 2 yay!! i just finished the install this morning, and now i have to leave for work i'll have to wait until tonight to play around some more.
  7. i see the .iso file when the CD is mounted. i'm going to try burning the iso file without the mkisofs step, but i wont be able to try until i get off work. hopefully this will work. the bios is set to boot from CD first then HD, but it doesn't seem to be working. i have a feeling i didn't burn the CD correctly. thanks for the help, john
  8. Hey all, I dowloaded fedora core 2 iso files, and i tried to burn them to cd using mkisofs -R -o fedora-disc1.cd then using cdrecord -v speed=2 dev=1,0,0 -data /path/to/fedora-disc1.cd. they all burned fine, but i tried to install fedora by rebooting my box with the cd in the drive thinking it would automatically start the fedora install. Needless to say i was wrong - install didn't start at boot up.. What did i do wrong? is there a way to install fedora from the iso files that are on my hard drive while i have rh9 booted and running? Can install fedora from the command line at boot up, and if so can you point me to some instructions how. Or, can you suggestion an easy solution. I'm running RH9 now, and would like to update to fedora2, so any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. thanks, John
