having a problem installing Fedora 10 and selecting "customize now" ???


after nearly an hour of checking dependencies, I get 4 errors

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487550

compassfloatitem.so
mapscalefloatitem.so
kdeedulibs
kde marble libs

what to do?

pick whatever you want but select "customize later"

do not pick kde anything

then get kde and others via yum (if you want kde) or better

yum install yumex

this was as standard an install as can be

I guess at this point you should really just skip F10. Support for F10 will drop one month after F12 is released(November). So with less than two months of life left in F10, I would just move on to F11(assuming you want to stick with Fedora).

too long a story for prime time

I hope to upgrade to F11 from F10

I've heard various descriptions of the process.

What is yours?

I downloaded F11 ISO DVD and there is something wrong with installing

from DVD. A long long story.

The official advised method of installing is still (and probably always will be) to do a clean install. So yes, best advice would be to install via the dvd, even if you need to swap one from another machine.

You never mentioned if you tried the workaround suggested in the FedoraForums thread. It appears to me that you have two separate unrelated issues.

One is the grub bug, which there is a work around listed.


The other is the issue with your video card. Without more details about this no one will be able to help you.

For both of these issue installing via yum (or any other nonstandard method) is not going to help you.

one cannot grasp the depth of the problem unless one sees

the many stories of disaster where a Fedora central person admits the disasters. One cannot make a cursory study and pronounce any lind of judgement!

You do understand that Fedora is a development distro? As in bleeding edge. Virtually every version of Fedora ever released had some machines that were a disaster. That is the nature of a development distro. It was just your turn to be in the minority for this version. F7 was the version that got me. That did not make F7 a disaster, it just made it a disaster for me. The same applies to F11 and you. You could have worked around the issues, but you choose not to. Which is entirely your privilege, but that does not make F11 a disaster.
