Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

First of all, Fedora 12 is old and unsupported so you should consider downloading and trying a newer supported version. Second, don't ask for urgent help here, it's only urgent to you and not to us who are all volunteers here at LQ trying to help out users with their Linux questions and/or problems. If the installation terminated abnormally as you stated then it's pretty safe to assume you'd be missing stuff. It would be logical to try to reinstall, but this time use a more recent and supported version.

Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

Fedora is now up to 15 you should probably install that 1 instead as it's supported, not sure if there is support for 12.

Hi,

According to the release notes found on the link I posted in my previous post Fedora 12 has reached 'End of Maintenance (no more updates)' on December 2, 2010. The same link also lists Fedora 12 as unsupported.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi Eric
at the time that you posted I was here posting, but my machine doesn't update a thread unless I refresh, so I apologize for almost repeating what you said.
