Fedora Linux

Fedora Linux


I am a new user in Linux. I am using Fedora 14 OS. I want to protect my computer, so nobody  can enter my PC. For this reason, I gave an Admin Password. But one of my friend unlocks it, using grub. So is there anyway, that I can give password in the Grub of Fedora OS? If yes, then give me detailed information about that. Thanks.

Hi there,

I am successfully practicing Linux using a live cd of Fedora 11. After getting to know how operating Linux works, I decided to move it to hard disk, so that I can use it as a primary operating system on my personal computer. The configuration of my personal computer is INTEL Pentium iv 3.4 GHz with hyper threading technology and 1 GB of ram and 320 GB of hard disk and NVIDIA graphic card.

The installation every time begins smoothly and runs till completion of copying installation files to the hard disk. After that, I got the following error and everything goes finished without a successful installation.


An error occurred mounting device /dev/sda1 as /:mount

Hi all Hi all,

My operating system on my PC is Windows XP and Microsoft Virtual PC 2007. I installed Fedora 9 and when I ran the program, I got the below error message.

“Fedora 9: An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now.”

Any idea what this might mean?

I tried installing Fedora 9 again. Yet this error message seems to appear. Is it the Fedora version that must be faulty? Or is my Virtual Memory playing up? How do I know for sure what the problem might be and how best do I sort this out?

When I click the reset button and run the program again. I still get this error. Should I use a newer version Fedora? Is there one existing that I can download?

I download a lot. I have 1 Mbps line in my home. Previously I was using Windows. But Recently I am using Fedora in my PC. In windows I have used IDM. But I don't have a downloader in Fedora. It's only curl that I can use.

But it is really annoying to use curl. Can anyone recommend me any better software than curl to continue my download.
