Re: FC2 test1: install glitches and comments (resend, last one was too big)



Hello Rick!

C'mon, at 19-25¢ per, I think using a CD-R is justifiable unless you don't have easy access to a recycling facility. Not only that, but they read much quicker for the install.

Ah? I didn't know that it was faster. As for recycling... Never heard of CD recycling around here!

-Just a Q about the boot diskette: I read somewhere that the kernel did
not fit anymore on a floppy, how does the boot diskette work?

It doesn't - that's why an ISO image is provided - they fit perfectly on the business card or 110mb mini CD-R's. A CD-RW works as well.

So... When the install is proposing to create a boot diskette, it is in fact proposing to burn an ISO image??


-cpuspeed: Error could not open file for writing
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpu_governor

configure /etc/cpuspeed.conf with the correct module. On my dell, it was speedstep-smi I believe. Once that was in, no more message, and I want to say my battery life improved to boot - but that could be the placebo effect :-) It would have been nice if this was auto-detected by kudzu and then inserted though.

Hmmm, I think it would be more then nice... It is not very professionnal to have Fedora switch back from normal boot screen to show that some service failed.


I've also changed the DRIVER entry to speedstep-smi and it doesn't show an error now. As you said, no way of verifying if this is having any effects but... Thanks!

Someone has filed the same problem:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=115595

I've commented on it with the info you provided.

Personal/Workstations install.  Frankly, I even like the idea of no
password for root for those kind of installs.

This can be done via the menu when configuring the login screen. Putting it less in the open discourages this overall bad practice.

Yes... Bad practice on the server I understand, but on my own, personal, single user laptop? What is the reasoning? Well, sure this is not Lindows or MDK, but no reason to be as friendly as possible with user's who have this on their laptop or desktop.


I think it is much worse to have the "Login Screen Setup" with the Security tab having "Allow root to login with GDM" and "Allow root to login remotely with GDM".
