I'm absolutely new to Linux but love my Fedora core 18
just a bit of "nit picking"
there is no OS called "fedora Core 18"
the very LAST "core" was "Fedora Core 6"
It is just plane old "Fedora 18 " -- NO core part
Id love it more if I could get it to play mp3 or mp4 video.
as per fedora's directive
It will NEVER
ship with NON free non gpl'ed software
not even java or flash, not Mp3
see Mjmwired's guide page
I download necessary codec or plug in and when I'm prompted to enter my password for authentication I enter the same or only pass word I have created.
then you have a MAJOR problem !!!
During the install fedora HAD YOU make a root password ,and had you type it in TWICE.
fedora uses "su" and "su -"
it dose NOT use "sudo" by default
you need to type in the root password
that you set up at the time of install
I believe there is a su password I must use but I've never created one
yes you did , you typed it in twice at the time of install
you also read a WARNING about forgetting it
