  1. I've been playing with this. I think it's done using the Virtual Machine Manager, Edit / Host Details. This steps through the creation of a new "storgae pool" where I can select from the physical partitions that I want to use. I'm stuck though. Confused between Source and Target paths.
  2. I do this with VirtualBox, for every OS I've installed under it. It allows me to decide where the virtual disk will reside. Haven't figured it out with Qemu yet.
  3. Fedora 11 x86_64 on my laptop. I'd like to create the virtual disk on, for example, dev/sda2 (Vista / NTFS) instead of the Fedora partition. Not enough space on the Fedora partition.

  5. Nice job Anyweb. I've finished the installation of all the virtualization tools but I'd like to create the virtual disk on another partition. Is this easily done?
  6. Heheh! Almost sounds like I just joined a some help group for something I need to stop doing
  7. I can be clueless at times. Other times I scare myself in terms of what I've just managed to do. People who know me think I'm a computer genius, but that's just because they themselves are clueless. Lucky they can turn the darned thing on! I've been using Linux for roughly 8 years now, going back to Calderra. First install couldn't even figure out how to get X. No idea what to do with the command prompt.

    Fedora 10 Beta

    Not that I recall. I'm sure that there were typical minor issues but I never had trouble installing it at all. I had used Fedora 9 since beta and then did a fresh install when it was released as final, then I used it right up until a week or 2 ago.

    Fedora 10 Beta

    OK, here's my current desktop with the stock background and echo icon theme. What other screen shots would you like ?

    Fedora 10 Beta

    Anyone moved to Fedora 10 Beta yet? I've been running it since its release, most recently as my only Fedora install and a daily user. This release is shaping up to be the best yet. It has been rock solid on my laptop since it was installed.
  11. Nice! No major problems with Fedora over the years? If I were running a web site such as this I would probably run it on Fedora too since I'm a Fedora fan. If I were running a business with hundreds or thousands of seats and multiple servers and uptime was of the utmost importance then I think that I would probably go with something like Redhat. I will say that I have a server of sorts here that hosts my wiki and serves as a backup system for music and all of the usual family backup needs, receiving data from 5 networked computers in the house. Runs Fedora 9 right now and has been running Fedora for a couple years now. The system is up all the time, 24/7, and is always available. Never crashes and is rock solid in its role.
  12. No distro wars here. Just wondering why someone would go with Fedora as a server in the first place. It evolves very rapidly. In my opinion they should have gone with Redhat from the get go. Like every other Fedora release. Bumpy to begin with, very usable, but there are always some things that don't quite work as expected. Some things that worked in the previous release are suddenly broken. We usually find a way to iron things out, then just when all is well here comes the next release. 9 is working flawlessly on my laptop. Sluggish on the desktop with the NVidia card. I think its the new xorg that is slowing things down. That box was never sluggish with Fedora 7 or 8. But all in all I like Fedora 9. Hope 10 is a winner. We'll see in a couple weeks.
  13. Fedora is not meant to be used in a production environment. What genius decided to go with Fedora for their servers?
  14. This is a clean install. The printer is an Epson Stylus Color C88. Worked perfectly until I installed Fedora 9. As I write this I'm downloading Samba updates. We'll have to see if I can print in 20 minutes or so.
