On my Gateway LT30 netbook, I am still getting similar problems to the
one I got after the Beta XFCE Live CD version install to HD. This time
I tried installing using the Fedora-15-i386-netinst.iso from a USB stick
1. a minimal system
2. a Graphical Desktop System
1. I was able to install the minimal system OK and then setup networking
- vesa driver
- fb driver
and groupinstall XFCE.
However I kept getting "/dev/fb0" does not exist errors (it does exist)
when trying to start X.
2. The Graphical Desktop version takes a lot longer to install (I think
there should be a "light" graphical install equivalent to the Live CD
version) but it eventually finishes however on rebooting I get:
Starting sm-client [OK]
Mounting other filesystems: mount: devpts already mounted or /dev/pts busy
mount: sysfs already mounted or /sys busy
Starting PC-SC Smartcrd (pcscd) [OK]
Reloading sendmail [OK]
Reloading sm-client [OK]
and then hangs again (very much like what I got after the Beta XFCE Live
CD version install to HD).
I want to try F15 on this machine (it currently runs F13) because F14
had a problem with a slow, sluggish mouse but I am not having much
success with F15 either so far . .
