Fedora 15: 768 MB RAM minimum ?

Posted 06-21-2011 at 07:13 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.

Sometimes the 'easy' way isn't the best way.

Posted 06-18-2011 at 02:32 AM by rich_c

I put my openSUSE box on the network using a Comtrend Powerline adaptor. It was connected using an Edimax wireless/usb adaptor which worked OK but wasn't particularly fast or reliable. The connection over the house wiring is much better on both counts.

I found with the Comtrend adaptor that the official way of syncing with the access point adaptor didn't seem to work. What did work perfectly was to go into the adaptor's admin web page and entering the network name and encryption...

It's all about the *right* eyeballs...

If you don't test something yourself, can you trust the information you find about the topic? The biggest difference between blindly trusting something and knowing the answer is having the right eyeballs. In other words, if you setup a test case to cast the data in the right light, you can see the answer plainly. You need the right eyeballs.

The reason ESR's statement "with enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow" is (somewhat) correct is that no two people look at a problem...

This tutorial is for linux. There are probably gui tools to do all of this stuff, but I have found that the command line tools are much more efficient and just work a lot better. They don't crash near...
