Fedora live cd installation problem


I recently downloaded fedora workstation 21 via torrent and burned the image on a dvd. When boot the machine from the dvd drive it boots perfectly. But then the system becomes unexpectedly slow. To check sometimes I press the caps/num lock to see. I find that it takes some time to light on or off after the key press. Next I don't find any pointer though the mouse is working fine. I don't know how to install this os on my machine.

Any help on this is appreciated!!!

Thanks.

I'd start by comparing your hardware to the minimum requirements for Fedora, see the link below:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...uirements.html

The link below is to the Fedora Project, how to install Fedora 21

Dear Yancek,

I had already gone through the articles before even downloading the distro. I didn't find any problem with the system requirements. I am running a machine with AMD made processor (AMD Phenom II X2 555, 3200 MHz, 2 cores) and nearly 500 G of hard disk space. I think newer versions of fedora have some problem with NVIDIA chipsets though I am not quite sure.

if it is a laptop using a hybrid CPU/GPU
then it might

you might need the bumblebee driver for the optimums "chip"

also be aware
fedora uses the OPEN source Nouveau driver by default and NOT!!! the closed source Nvidia.run driver

see the fedoraforum GUIDE for nvidia drivers
http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/sh...d.php?t=280750


and for the current TESTING branch of the nvidia driver
http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/sh...d.php?t=301931
( about the same as the above)

the problem with nvidia is the vid card driver. akmod and kmod fail to give you a log in screen after installation and boot. i ran into that this weekend. i had no slowness issue at all otherwise in fact, it was the fastest fedora install i have ever done and was quite surprised and pleased by it. i do have a similar processor in my machine. are you sure it is not a hardware issue like a failing dvd or failing ram or failing hard drive?
