THE sony dvd rw awg540a IS NOT RECOGNIZE FOR FEDORA LINUX


DVD drives are generic. They do not require specific drivers. Fedora includes a DVD driver built-in. If the drive does not work, it is because of a hardware problem.

I loaded fedora 10 on my dell inspiron 1545 and my blue tooth and wifi is no more working even with my network cable i can't browse the internet.


this is because Fedora and and other LINUX type of OS may not contain the drivers for your computer. You will need to download the driver from Fedora or Linux driver downloads and install them manually. This could be a pain.

I actually have one of these, I just went and got Fedora 10 (Fedora version of Red Hat Linux vs. the pre-installed Linpus version of Red Hat Linux) and installed it instead. Anyways, there should be a way to take the cd, load it onto another computer, and have it put itself on an empty 2GB (or bigger) USB thumb drive if you can't get a cd loaded onto it. I did this several times before I went to Fedora 10, and the wireless works in Fedora 10.

How can i install red hat linux on my hp laptop


Actually, Red Hat Linux is now only an Enterprise Level Operating system. Fedora on the other hand is sponsored by Red Hat and is much better suited for a personal computer. Just head over to fedoraproject.org and download the Fedora 10 ISO. Then burn it to a CD and reboot your computer. It should boot automatically into Fedora.

Hope that helped!!

Activiton problem


Linux XP has had several reports of problems with activation. Your best bet would be to contact their technical support. Or switch to one of the completely FREE Linux distros. Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint linux, Dream Linux, Mandriva, Knoppix. Are just a few that offer the same simple install interface and hardware support.

Linux XP is a free linux distro that charges you for pre-installing applications like "Wine" that run windows based apps. Wine itself is also free and can be installed on any linux distro.

Hope this helps you out.
