Episode 52 Fedora 10

Posted in Fedora at 9:26 am by ewlabonte

This week I install Fedora 10 from the live cd installer. It’s a single cd installer compared to the traditional 3 cd or 1 dvd installation method. Anaconda, the Red Hat installation program is accessed through an icon on the Gnome desktop. My atheros built in wireless card was automatically detected due to the 2.6.27 kernel. All in all a very impressive release.

Episode 44 Blag 70000 part 1

Posted in Blag, Fedora at 2:53 pm by ewlabonte

The Lip is finally back. I’m sorry for the delay, the computer that I was recording on died and I had a hard time finding something to replace it with. I purchased a usb sound card and that’s what I’m using for this podcast. Unfortunately it isn’t a perfect solution. There’s an audible hiss in the background, but I wanted to get a podcast out so this is the best I could do.

This week I install Blag 70000. Blag is a distro I’ve been using on and off for two years now. It’s one of only six distros recommended by the Free Software Foundation because of it’s dedication to free software. I install the main system and get wireless working.

LIP 20: Fedora Core 6 Wrap Up

Posted in Fedora at 5:02 am by serge

Fedora has gone from success to success so we are sad to have to wrap up this distribution to say goodbye. In our summary it earns a perfect 5 out of 5.

We also describe setting up a dual headed desktop under Fedora Core. First episode of 2007, and we are off to a great start.

LIP 19: Fedora Core, Wireless

Posted in Fedora, Wireless at 3:48 am by serge

Third episode with the Core keeps the love coming with a fairly straightforward install of the firmware for our wireless card. With this Fedora continues to impress.

We also spend a little time talking about an adventure of replacing a second hard drive on my Etch desktop, and we take some user feedback on board with our new Distribution Scorecards.

LIP 18: Fedora Core: Sleep, Packages and Eye Candy

Posted in Fedora, Package Management at 5:38 pm by serge

We got this one recorded and posted to the feeds early, but didn’t get to update the blog here till a day after the “release” due to travel.

Fedora continues to impress as we get Vim 7.0 gui installed with the package management system, learn that sleep works out of the box and discover some cool eye candy in Gnome 2.16.

LIP 17: Fedora Core 6.0 Initial Install

Posted in Fedora, Initial Install at 4:58 am by serge

The first segment on our fifth distro greets us with pretty blue desktops littered with double-helix type thingies. The intial install goes generally smoothly, using 3 cd-images that we cleverly had downloaded prior to tonight’s show. Since initial installs take some time, we fill in the dead air with some thoughts about Rockbox on an ipod nano and the ogg goodness it enables.

Fedora is off to a very nice start. Looking forward to the next three episodes where we check out getting wireless, sleep and the package manager to do their things.
