Fedora 15: 768 MB RAM minimum ?

Posted 06-21-2011 at 08:13 AM by DJ Shaji

I was deeply saddened by the minimum system requirements for the new Fedora 15. I really cannot understand why the Fedora project is moving away from what I used to believe was its original goal. I mean, I have been using Fedora since its first version was released, but now, I have to look elsewhere, since it simply won't run on my system anymore

Even though they say that it won't run on my system, I will at least try my best to make it work before I give up.

Load multiple soundcard drivers in order

Posted 06-07-2011 at 09:16 AM by DJ Shaji

I recently bought a SoundBlaster Live! 5.1vx to record music in full 24 bits per sample, and so now I have two soundcards - one PCI card and one built-in on the motherboard.

One issue that had been bugging me for a while - not that problematic, but an issue nonetheless - I have Fedora 14 - because modern distros search for and load modules in parallel to speed up the boot process, the result is that the order in which modules will be loaded becomes unpredictable. So, the soundcards...

On "Shareware" Distributions

Posted 04-17-2011 at 05:52 PM by DJ Shaji

I recently came across something called Linux XP, which is a shareware distribution, which
  • is designed to look like Windows XP
  • will "deactivate" itself in 30 days if a serial number is not purchased.
  • is based on Fedora.

My question is this - how is it ethical to take something from the community, and sell it for a price to unsuspecting customers? Surely somebody who's new to Linux is not supposed to know any better, and seeing "XP" in the title and the familiar...

Fedora 14 review on "low end" machine

Posted 04-04-2011 at 12:27 PM by DJ Shaji

I was personally very disappointed and disillusioned when I tried to install Fedora 14 on my system (1.5GHz Pentium 4, 256 MB RAM). The installer said that my system memory was too low for it to run. Anyhow, after some tinkering with the text based install - which doesn't offer much partitioning options, by the way - I was able to install it to my system. And that's when I was pleasently surprised !

First of all, let me clearly say that Fedora 14 outperforms both Fedora 11 that I...
