Day 1 With Fedora 7

Filed under
Linux

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.

Thanks!

re: Hello ... author

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!

Quadcopter drone packs first all-Linux APM autopilot

Erle Robotics launched a ROS-enabled, open source “Erle-brain” autopilot that runs APM directly on Linux. The device also powers an “Erle-copter” drone. Over the last year, Spanish firm Erle Robotics S.L. has been working with 3DRobotics to develop an open source BeaglePilot autopilot for drones that can run Linux on 3DR’s popular, Arduino-based APM (ArduPilot Mega) platform. The APM Linux port was developed by both companies, as well as several academic institutions. The BeagleBone-based “Erle-brain” autopilot is built into the $490-and-up Erle-copter quadcopter.

Seven Tips To Get The Most From Your New Android Smartphone

With applications able to run in the background and sync as they see fit, Android can rapidly eat through your cellular data allowance if you are not careful. While it’s fine to let the data run free on wi-fi, you’ll want to restrict your data usage when out and about. Short of switching off mobile data (which defeats the purpose of a smartphone), look under the options in the Data Usage part of the settings. Here you’ll find my wallet’s favourite Android setting of ‘restrict background data’. Now when using cellular data, apps will only pull down data when they are in the foreground and you can see them doing so. If a smartphone is all about being in control, this is the option that gives you confidence. Read more
