Fedora 18 anaconda feature that I had not seen with the Fedora 17 DVD, is the new ability to directly read a Fedora ISO file. If this feature is backported to Fedora 17, then for some of us, we would or should be able to install Fedora 18 directly from Fedora 17.
I'm a beginner to Linux. I installed Fedora v.7 a couple months back on a Dell desktop (dual boot with WinXP). I am trying to upgrade to the latest version now and having some problems. I tried to upgrade to Fedora v 10 using yum update, but get the following error: "Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: anaconda-upgrade-install".
I want to install Fedora 18 to my multiboot pc with mbr pointing to an existing Fedora 16 with grub 1 and chainload 18 from that. Is it doable? When I ran a test install in virtualbox, the new anaconda did not give any grub install options, but just went ahead and wrote to mbr.
I just downloaded Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso, created a USB with liveusb-creator-3-11-8. The computer boots but it doesn´t show the option Install Fedora, the only options available are Start Fedora and Troubleshooting. If I start Fedora, it starts, asks me for a user, I login as root and can see the hard drive but can´t start installation procedure.
This tutorial shows how you can install Linux Mint's Cinnamon
desktop on Fedora 17. Since it has now been included in the
repositories this can now be done quite quickly. Fedora's default
desktop at the moment is GNOME 3.
