Hey guys, ok so after spending time using Linux Mint I decided to give the newest version of fedora a go thinking maybe I'd not have the same issues installing as I did with version 16 however much to my surprise (not!) I had exactly the same problem. I decided to go with the KDE download and burnt to a disc for installation, no problems there.
I am trying to setup Fedora 16 or 20 on a crosshair mother board. Neither one will identify or setup a network connection. Windows XP or Mint 16 both connect to the network just fine. Can I down load the latest network drivers from Fedora and use Mint to update Fedora? If so please tell me how, as I am new to Linux.
I want to dual boot Fedora 16 32 bit and Mint 12 32 bit. I have created 3 primary partitions, one for swap, one for Fedora 16 and one for Mint 12. I installed Fedora to sda1 and its Grub to the MBR. Then I installed Mint to sda3 and its Grub to sda3. Now when the pc boots, it does not show Mint on the boot menu and it only shows Fedora, why so? I think Mint 12 also uses Grub2, right?
I've got a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6094 that I've just installed Fedora 17 onto. When I have a process that utilizes 100% of the cpu for more than 15 minutes or so, the computer force shuts down due to overheating.
Back when I had windows 7 and I overused the processor the fan speed would go into "jet engine" mode while it made a dreadful sound, however it never shut down due to overheating.
