Review of Fedora Core 6 Installation

Filed under: Fedora — Tags: — egoleo @ 7:50 am

After wondering in the world of ubuntu(debian), i decided to get into the world of fedora core specifically core 6. I was really happy with the looks. More over with the use YUM which makes it easier in updating and installing packages.My Desktop Screenshot

*** It seems Fedora made a error with the installation disc and mixed up i586 and i686 arches. To see if your installation got the error type this in the terminal as root user :***

rpm -q --qf='%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}n' kernel
if the output says i586 then it indeed got the error and to fix this type this in the terminal :

su -c "yum install yum-utils"
yumdownloader kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686
su -c "rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --replacepkgs kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm"
yum update
And from this point, u can install all other stuffs
