Linpus Lite -- Same as Fedora?


Hi, Linux newbie here. First question: A lot of websites are saying that Linpus Lite is based on Fedora, so as common sense goes, if I have questions about its processes, it would be correct to refer to guides on how one would do it on Fedora. Did I get that right?

Second question: If it is indeed based on Fedora, what version? And if I downloaded a particular application for Feadora 7 (for example, if that's the version that it's based on), does that mean that it work perfectly with my Linpus?

Have been trying to install Comical 7 for Fedora 8 (for comic-book reading) using rpm but to no avail.


Hope someone can clear this up for me. (an if he/she could kindly refer me to another cdisplay alternative that could work with linpus, plus installation instructions?)

I'd be eternally grateful!

This may seem like splitting hairs, but applications are written for Linux---not for specific distributions. They are typically packaged for specific distros, but, if app X works on one, then it can be made to work on any.

If you tell us the specific issue, we might be able to help. Have you gone to the home page for that app? Searched on Google?

Hi...

I have the same problem. I've downloaded the tar.gz file several times, but it doesn't extract correctly. I'm using Linpus Lite.

The latest Linpus (9.6) is based on Fedora-9

Linpus-lite is based on Fedora-6. This should be binary compatible with RHEL-5, CentOS-5.


The correct way should be install yum and say a gui for that
