Re: Fixya Chat client for LINUX fedora 10
Hi, I actually don't know if one is available, but you could email General Support - email@example.com
I was wondering though if you can install under WINE in Fedora? I am used to Ubuntu, but have actually burned the Fedora10 .iso to a disk, but haven't played with it yet, so I don't know if you can install WINE to it, but I presume you can. Maybe you could mount XP, grab the Chat Client Installer and see if you can run it using WINE? I know it probably won't be listed as being supported by the repository, but it wouldn't hurt to try.. Good Luck

You don't need drivers. You need to adjust the resolution and refresh rate. If you plug in an old CRT monitor then Linux will probably boot and you can edit the conf file to change the settings. Most LCD monitors require 50-60Hz refresh rate.
WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations.
1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways.
2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install.
3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install.
4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing.
5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!
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.
Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.
Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.
I bought one 5 months ago. The e520-2496 has no pre-installed software hence the low price. my included dvd didn't do anything either. I bought a Linux Fedora 10 installation DVD from www.osdisc.com for 5 bucks. this made it very easy the dvd was recognized immediately and has self expanatory instructions. Or go to www.fedoraproject.org and download it for free and burn it to a dvd. If you hold down the Ctrl key with the DVD in it should load it. Or check www.linpus.com but it is no help. I eventually installed linpus desktop from thier website and have a dual boot with Linpus and Fedora 10. The Linpus is no good with no wi-fi or support I do not recommend it. The Fedora 10 has excellent wi-fi and tons of support, forums, and updates. Or gooogle "linux OS" and choose from dozens of free or cheap Linux systems. If you go with Fedora 10 just make sure you buy a 64 bit version. The e520 has a 64 bit celeron M processor. P.S. don't mess around when your in root if you don't know what your doing and, always type in "exit" when done. I am new to this also but learning fast. hope this helps.
Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora. If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
Try to get the Linux OS called "Fedora 8". It has all the Samba features. And Fedora 8 is a Linux Kernel ( Red Hat ) server Operating System, You can do many things with it. But you will internet to download more stuffs in fedora 8.
