  1. Re: If I use a Linux distro that use the same package type can I use driver from anot

    No, not necessarily (in fact it's fairly unlikely). The package format is not as important as whether the contents of the package are actually compatible with your distribution. OpenSUSE and Fedora...

    Re: Dual boot Debian/Fedora - share /home?

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking. You seem to have decided not to use the same /home (which I'd certainly agree with), but then you say "from what I read /shared is the way to go." What do you...

    As monkeybrain said, if you create a user as an 'administrator' in Fedora (all the user creation tools should have this option, except gnome-initial-setup, which *always* creates the user as an...
  4. Re: Fedora 19 Beta - Issues with trackpoint and brightness controls. Eh?

    Interesting bug, but I just added a comment which may help in practical terms: you should be able to just put the correct form of the kernel parameter directly into grub2.cfg. Because of how Fedora...

    fishboyfive: thanks for the kind words, but I'm not sure Ubuntu would be best served by Fedora's installer necessarily :) It's certainly not a straightforward thing to simply transfer an installer...
  7. Re: Fedora Graphics Test Week kicks off tomorrow (Tuesday)!

    Hi, Graham. Yes, that test command is pretty 'dumb', we've just been copy/pasting it from event to event forever. If I get five minutes I'll see if I can come up with a slightly more robust version....
  8. Fedora Graphics Test Week kicks off tomorrow (Tuesday)!

    I hope no-one minds me posting this here - I don't spam about all kinds of Fedora events, but Graphics Test Week is a bit of an exception. It's of interest beyond the Fedoraverse, because Fedora devs...

    Re: Enjoying Fedora 18

    That's not bad advice. MATE is available from the installer if you use the netinst image, just not if you use the DVD.

    Re: Enjoying Fedora 18

    It's not DVD sized, it's just gone up from 700MB target to 1GB (I think Ubuntu did something similar recently in fact). So you can write it to a 1GB, 2GB or 4GB USB stick, for instance.

    Re: Enjoying Fedora 18

    Most of the problems people have had with F18 are in the installer, which isn't really surprising as it's effectively a ground-up rewrite. F18 itself is a pretty decent release, I'm not aware of any...

    Thanks for the feedback on EMGD, everyone. Looks like it'd be pretty useless for Fedora as F14 is X.org 1.9 :) I find the performance of psb okay, especially using Compiz instead of metacity, and I...

    Matthew says you have to rebuild initrd/initramfs with psb module in it after applying the patches before Plymouth will (possibly) work. Haven't sorted that out yet.
