Core 2 Review
- Use FTP mirrors or BitTorrent to download iso images.
- Make sure to do a linux mediacheck before beginning install.
- Install supports CD, DVD, HD-ISO, NFS-ISO, FTP, HTTP, USB, and VNC.
- Some installs have trouble with LCD displays, so use the linux nofb option.
- To install/activate SELinux, install using the selinux option.
- When partitioning the disks, linux file system options are limited to ext2/ext3.
Even though xfs is supported in Kernel 2.6. Of course you can format vfat and swap as well as setup RAID disks.
- Be very careful if installing a Fedora/Windows XP dual boot system.
Bugzilla entry #115980 describes some of the problem(s) and possible solution(s). Read more about this bug.
- Depending on processor speed, the install time is long; even longer for upgrade(s).
- Configuration utilities have changed from redhat- to system-.
(i.e. redhat-config-network is now named system-config-network, etc.)
- Fedora supports both yum (default) and apt package managers. See the Fedora HOWTO.
