Re: does my system support federo 15 desktop edition

Apart from your NVIDIA graphiccard everything of these hardware is probably supported very well out-of-the-box. For you graphiccard you will need NVIDIAs proprietary drivers, otherwise the 2D and 3D acceleration will be pretty bad. You can follow this guide here to install it (after you completed your Fedora 15 installation).

I recommend that you save your more important data on external media first before you install Linux. It's usually not necessary, but nevertheless safer. And it makes of course always sense to have your important data on more than one storage medium stored, even if you only used windows.

In case if you don't have unpartitioned space on your harddisk, you will have to resize or remove partitions. There are Windows programs where you can resize partitions, but you can also do this during Linux installation. I don't know any of such windows programs.

During linux installation you can choose to automatically create linux partitions, and if necessary to resize existing partitions. I personally prefer to make manual partitions setups, because I want a setup without LVM. Fedoras installer uses LVM setup by default. This has in few cases advantages, but it can sometimes make things a bit more complicated for example if you want to use more than one linux on your system. I really don't have much experience with LVM setups, maybe I exaggerate.

In case if you want to try a manual partition setup (automatical setup is easier):
  • choose the appropriate option in the Fedora installer (manual partition setup)
  • your Linux partitions should be after your Windows partitions
  • resize existing partitions if necessary and make sure that there is enough free space on them
  • create a partition with mountpoint "/" and ext4 type, size 9 GB or more
  • create a swap type partition 2 GB or a bit more (without mountpoint)
  • use the rest of the free space for your home partition (mountpoint "/home"), there is all your user data (documents, media etc.) stored (partition type for example ext4)
  • you can only have up to 4 primary partitions on one harddisk, your fourth should be a an extended partition, which can contain up to 8 logical partitions (if you need more than 4 partition)

Thank you for your support ,but the link which you have shown does not contain nforce 7025/geforce 630a driver ...where to find it & also suggest me a linux version os which is good in graphics and supports my pc configuration (i want to try fedora 15 i386 and downloadind it from http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/ in Fedora-15-i386-DVD.torrent)

Re: does my system support federo 15 desktop edition

the link he gave you was to a forum thread in these forums that show you exactly how to install the nvidia drivers from the rpmfusion repository.

That is the best way to install the nvidia drivers, in my opinion, and Leigh123linux has put a lot of time and effort into helping people here to get them installed over the years. (I would select the akmod option myself, it's the better option in my opinion)

Use the default video driver unless you are needing demanding 3d support. Simple is better.
My setup:

Intel DP35DP MB; Nvidia 440 2 gig Video Card; 8 gigs of ram; Intel Core 2 Quad 2.83 gig; Hp Officejet Pro L7580; LVM F23 64bit using 2 320g HDs and dual monitors.
