I'm not sure if i am saying this right, but i'm trying to configure a ATI
128 mobility video card while using fedora core 2. The drivers for linux
that ati offers did not do the trick.
I really need to get this working, because I need an external monitor now
first before I ever see the display right. And on a laptop, this isn't very
If you can help me out, please do.
Thanx in Advance
I just installed FC2 and configured network. However, I can not ping
anything except localhost, nor rlogin to the system from my pc. How do I
check if my FC2 system actually is able to access to the internet?
Thanks for replying about my installation problem on the mashita dvd multi drive.
I have broadband but I have never successfully installed over a network connection.
It makes sense to me that the installation of Fedora2 is stalling due to lack of a driver because this is a new laptop.
Can someone give me a URL and some instructions how to do a network install after booting to the CDROM?
Thanks for any help.
Problem: I had been able to install "standard" Red Hat on a somewhat
aging Celeron with a 10GB hard drive to which I added a Maxtor 40GB USB
2.0 external drive. Partition Magic "liked" the external, too. It
seems that whatever I'm doing wrong, Fedora 2 will not recognize that
there is a USB 2.0 disk.
I'd cleared about 125 MB on the original disk for /boot storage with the
intention of loaded the other material on the USB disk. No such luck if
Fedora can't seem to find the drive.
What am I not doing that I should be doing?
I have been writing a small program in C++ with KDevelop to calculate
vectors for physics class, and I have compiled and installed it so that
it runs when I type the command in the console, which is really cool! If
I want to cross-compile it to make a windows version to give to some of
my friends, how would I do that? I'm guessing it would just be a DOS
file, since there is no gui?
I am looking to purchase a new laptop to use for Linux development on
FC2. My requirements are...
>= 1.5 GHz
>= 1.0 GB
>= 60 GB HD
>= 1200 x 1024 NATIVE resolution
Wireless (11Mb or 54Mb), 10/100/1000 NIC, sound, USB 2.0, PCMCIA
Bluetooth would be nice
Flawless functionality with FC2 and/or RH9
Any "tried and true" suggestions?

I want to use iiimf but as for installation...
1) there is only a core1 dir for yum
2) the testing guide give vague instructions like download the files and
use the standard rpm -ivh.... but
3) there are 15+ rpms under
Do I really need them all?
I'm not sure but I think you should have a registeration on rhn or simply you can update packages you need directly (via web) from redhat

un-dual boot XP & FC2
How do I correct the boot procedure?
Neither will boot separately. How do I fix this?
I have 2 hardrives. hda is XP, and hdb is FC2, managed
by Grub. I want to separate them. I bought drive
trays, so when I want FC2, I put in FC2 tray. When I
want XP, I put in XP tray. RESULT: not dual boot
how do I correct the boot procedure?
WHAT I'VE TRIED
I take out hdb (FC2) and boot hda XP only. I get:
"GRUB hard disk error"
I place FC2 as primary master and adjust jumper as
Booting from CD ROM

So, I think that I need to re-write a mbr, but I'm out
of my depth here. Any help appreciated.
