  1. Site is much more responsive now. Keep up the good work!
  2. Hey all I'v been using Fedora 9 Final for a couple of days now (A special thanks go to a misconfigured fedora mirror in europe). The essentials: [mcduck@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora release 9 (Sulphur) [mcduck@localhost ~]$ uname -a Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Thu May 1 06:28:41 EDT 2008 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux Images now mirrored. To clear up any mistakes: Fedora 9 is not "Released" yet. (This is more like a.. "leak") Bandwidth graphs for the image server (web server graphs not available). Can you spot the digg effect? Here are some shots from the install. I will not go into detail when it comes to these. One thing that has changed is the encryption option (i did not test this), that allows you to make and install to an encrypted partition. the grub screen Fedora 9 booting create a user date and time hardware profile fedora install starting install process installing ipw firmware installing kernel congratulations installation complete what language during install process select keyboard for the system creating partition network setup time zone root password remove partitions office and productivity login screen Finally, time for login. The login box looks rather boring. I liked the old one way better. One thing to note; The session option (Where you can choose windows manager, for example kde or gnome) is now located as a bar on the bottom of the screen and only becomes visable after you click on your user (when your asked to type password) Let's confirm version: Now, lets have a look at KDE 4! Jummy, it looks so nice! The clock is actually a widget. Notice the image in the top right corner? This is where you add / remove widgets A little more widgets running here: Turning on widgets is really easy. Just click the icon at the top right of your screen. This bring forth this menu: [/img]http://video.linux-noob.com/screenshots/fedora/9/post-67-1210462933.png[/img] Time to look at some of the updated stuff in Fedora. One such thing is Firefox. Another thing is the "Start menu". Now it works much like the one in Vista. It takes a little getting used to, but definitly better than the old one (Or the one in Vista). System monitor and widgets KDE Version But Konquerer was not dead! Please digg!
  3. Actually, when we are talking about source rpms, there are no different architectures (Since its not compiled), so kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm is the rpm you need
  4. No problem Let me know if you have any problems installing.
  5. NTFS for 2054: http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/187/
  6. Arch does not matter when its about the source. This is the RPM your looking for: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedo...054_FC5.src.rpm
  7. The steps are pretty easy. You can find them on: http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/126/62/ Thats the exacly method im using
  8. RPM: http://www.win-vista.net/downloads/linux-n...r.10.5.i686.rpm Install; Run this command as root: rpm -ivh http://www.win-vista.net/downloads/linux-n...r.10.5.i686.rpm Test that its properly installed by running; modprobe ntfs If there is no error message, its installed properly. If you get this error; No such module NTFS, Its not installed properly. I'l keep the rpms comming as redhat updates their development kernels.
  9. Ok, i see the linux-ntfs project dident make a rpm for the 2.6.15-1.2059_FC5 kernel yet, so i made one. Download it here: http://www.win-vista.net/downloads/2.6.15-...r.10.5.i686.rpm (96KB)
  10. yeah that sucked... really sucked.. however, iv installed 2.1.4 now, with the latest patches. Should be safe now :>
  11. ftp://ftp.nara.wide.ad.jp/pub/Linux/fedora/core/4/i386/iso/ ftp://ftp.nara.wide.ad.jp/pub/Linux/fedor...C4-i386-DVD.iso etc I found this one searching trough all the mirrors in the redhat list :>
