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.

    Is there any chance of you guy doing a show on eLive? I just got the enlightenment 17 (&16) CD, and am brand new to Linux… sort of, I already use Firefox and Open Office, and am looking to make a complete change-over soon.
    Thanks for the podcast – it has been an excellent help so far!!
