F10 install from LiveCD: differences & problems (ooffice, PC speaker...)


With the prominence of the "Download Now" button at http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora one gets the impression that the LiveCD is the recommended route to installing Fedora 10. But there are a lot of missing packages in order to fit it on a CD. ... I wouldn't be surprised if there were a lot of confused new folks out there.


If this thread turns into a place were people can share their fixes/tricks it might serve new users well. In addition, this is an obvious place for questions & problems that are not handled verbatim by the docs and wiki.


I'll get the ball rolling with one of each:


the very useful OpenOffice.org suite can easily be installed by getting a terminal Applications > System Tools > Terminal, then cut and paste the following:

Code:
% su 
# yum install openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-writer


PC Speaker; I was partially successful. I can't figure out how to control PC Speaker volume. Release Notes for F10 mention alsamixer, but for me that only shows one Pulseaudio entry for "Master"
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/releas...ing_PC_speaker

I also tried the above directions to disable the speaker, and it removed the error beep. However, movies/movies/etc still play through the speaker.

For reference,
Code:
# more /etc/modprobe.conf
install pcspkr :
# modprobe -l pcspk*
/lib/modules/2.6.27.12-170.2.5.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/input/misc/pcspkr.ko
Anyone have ideas?

I disabled the pcspeaker by blacklisting the pcspkr module in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and that seems to have done the trick for me. If you are using the live cd, "modprobe -r" should unload the module, so you shouldn't hear any terminal error beeps.

Thanks! Did you have the LiveCD install, too?

Also, can anyone with the non-LiveCD version confirm/deny that the modprobe.conf method works for them? ... These exact same instructions were for Fedora 9 as well.. wonder if they might be outdated.

I installed from the live cd. The method above works fine on Fedora and other distros (tried it on Debian, openSUSE and CentOS).
