    Unofficial Fedora Core 2 Guide for Beginners

    Many thanks to those that gave me support. I've decided to continue...


    Unofficial Fedora Core 2 Guide for Beginners:

    *Any mirrors and translations are welcome

    About me:
    Just to let you all know, I've only pickup Linux (Fedora) since April 2004, therefore I might not be aware of many things and the most efficient way of doing things. So please forgive my ignorance! Iíve already gave my best!

    There are still many more topics that I want to include in, but due to time constraint, I can only do it bit by bit. So, please be patients with me.

    Common Feedbacks:
    Why not just use yum for Fedora Updates and 3rd Party Programs? It's easier that way!
    This is an alternative way of installation, meant for users who do not always have broadband access, so that he/she can download the packages elsewhere and then install it offline. Coffee or tea, itís all up to your preference.

    Not a very good guide! Information is dodgy and not very well laid out! There are much better guides on the net! This isn't too useful!
    I do agree that, there are much better guides out on the net! Just to let you all know, this guide started out from my personal reference notes; of my day to day effort on learning Linux (Fedora). My notes were never intended to be published on the net, till I noticed from forums that there are people who are facing the same issues that I had before. That's when I figured out, why not share my notes! I've never declared my guide to be good, so please don't be too harsh on me. I'm neither an expert nor a writer, and this is my first time writing a guide. Trust me, if I could do better, I would. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm here to learn too.

    To Do List:
    -Correction: For installations and configurations (use normal user then su to be root)
    -3rd Party Programs: NTFS (read)
    -Networking: smbclient
    -Security: Disable shutdown, halt, reboot command for normal users
    -Hardware: Memory stick/Thumb drive
    -Hardware: Palm

    To Learn List:

    Help out, read:
    http://fedoraguide.org
    *Web site still new, keep it simple till have time for web programming. For now more topics...

    Smile Xine player-Mounting NTFS partitions

    Can you please put on your fag how to install Xine and all the software needed by it to work?
    Also it would me great to put a fag explaning how to install driver to be able to see ntfs partitions and how to mount them.
    It would be great to have this thing also.
    You have done a great job this far!
    Congratulations.
    P.s
    If it is possible to add for Mplayer the gui installation because i dont know much how to function it from command line.
    There is a mplayer-gui somewhere there.
    Why to use cli if we can ease our selfs with a gui?

    Thanks for feedback.

    I've added your request to my To Do and To Learn List.

    If not mistaken mplayer-gui is not GUI installation. It's the GUI of mplayer in X-Windows (gmplayer).

    Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm here to learn too.

    You might want to take a look at the FedoraFAQ. Some of your solutions seem overly complicated, like installing Java for instance.

    Good effort though.

    It would be better to use the su command to become root rather than doing everything as a logged in root user I think.

    Wow! I'm encouraged! First day release and I've got a translation already!

    Thanks for feedback.

    I think using su is the better way too. My concern is afraid some beginners would be confused. That's why I suggest install and configure using root, but when day to day usage use normal user.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm here to learn too.

    No, you musn't encourage people to do it all as root. Otherwise they'll become lazy and only log in as root, thats when damage occurs.

    Su is the way to go.

    Auto-unmount

    Hello,
    Tux2furious is there a way you can add this feature:
    When we press the eject button on our cd-roms,dvd-roms the fedora to unmount the drive automatically and let the tray open so we dont have to unmount it manually to have that cd,dvd come out!
    Happy to give you some tough things to do
    Untill next time,
    May the force be with you!

    Another suggestion is to use su -c "command" or sudo.

    This is exactly what it is all about...our experiences with FC 1& 2 are as varied as we are...no one is going to have the same problem nor the same solution...don't complain, why not contribute to this project...

    thanks for your guide
