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 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.
I'm trying to boot Fedora 17 from a USB, I tried both the DVD version and the one on the main page. I've used: Linux Live USB Creator, Live USB Creator (Fedora-one), and Unetbooting. I also tried after clicking "a" and
root=live:CDLABEL=LIVE if=/home/per/Fedora-17-x86_64-DVD.iso of=/dev/sdb
Everything failed. Fedora just don't want to install no matter what I'm trying.
I was planning on installing a new linux distribution and I am thinking of trying GNOME 3 interface. Other than Fedora 16 ( which has GNOME 3 as default) which other distro supports it? I know it can be installed from the repository(before you downvote me). But I tried the GNOME 3 on OpenSuse and had hard time running it; it never really integrated fully.
