Day 1 With Fedora 7

Filed under

Installing Fedora was very straight forward. After choosing my default language and keyboard layout, I was met with some partitioning options. Opting for a "custom setup", the partitioner that the Fedora installer provides leaves little to be desired for a basic install. I was able to select which disk partitions I wanted to use, which of these I wanted to format, and where I wanted each partition to be mounted. I chose to use my home partition from my Ubuntu install, and everything appeared to work well.

Moving on, I was offered to customize my package selection. Choosing to do so, I was able to select or de-select large package groups, such as games, office productivity, editors, and others. I generally like to see a more detailed and customizable approach to package selection, as openSUSE and other distros provide.

Along the install process I was also able to chose whether or not to install a boot loader.

Hello all! I am the author

Hello all!
I am the author of this post on Just Another Tech Blog.
Thank you for submitting my writing, but I feel that the opinions I express in that post are rather unjust. It was mainly intended as a post to express my feelings about the distro right after installation. That means that some of what I say may not be accurate and be only accredited to my relative inexperience with Linux in general. I have followed up this post with a few other posts on Fedora 7 and my experiences have been greatly improving.

Just keep this in mind while reading.

Yeah, we linked to the followup too.

What's that you say? Stuff on the web or posted in a blog "might" not be accurate! Shocked I say, just shocked!

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
