FIrst off i'm diggin linux but i have lots of little questions.
1. Smartd fails at startup
why does this happen? how can i fix it?
2. Probing for new hardware takes about 5-10 minutes on startup
Should it take this long with no new hardware? Cani i speed it up, or since i know i'm not chaning hardware disable it?
3. I still need windows for class i have a Visual Basic class
Can fedora emulate VB.net or should i just leave that to windows?
4. New software
When i download and install new software where should i installl it to, so it is managable?
Is there a way to have fedora install it so that it appears in the Package Manager/Add Remove Apps?
Is there a way to install so Up2date will look for its updates? or do only the packages on the cd's do that?
5. Mozilla plugins
Where can i get plugins for mozilla to play like Quicktime or Windows Media files?
Where is a good site for linux downloads?
7. Tars and RPM's
I once ran mandrake that when i clicked on either a tar or rpm file, it would unpackage it or run it.
Now i'm getting a Associate Application message. Any Apps i may have missed that were packaged
WIth fedora good for this?
I think those are all my questions for now anyway.
