Fedora 11 refuses to install on my new motherboard/cpu combo…

I recently bought an ASRock K10n78m motherboard with an AMD 7750 cpu, but was unable to make F11 preview or final install, either from the LiveCD or the DVD installation media. Bummer! From the Live CD, pressing the Install to Hard Drive icon just didn’t do anything. It never started Anaconda, the installation program. With the DVD installation disc, it would always hang during some part of the installation… several times at “searching for storage devices.” It’s a shame, because I really wanted to be running Fedora 11 now. Instead, I’ll just be happy (for a while) with Mint 7.

After a brief foray into Mandriva land…

I am now writing this from a brand new installation of Fedora 11 alpha (actually 10.91). As in Fedora 10, because I re-used a seperate /home partition, when I first booted up into the new installation, it failed to get to my KDE user desktop. I had to log in as root and issue these two commands in a terminal:

chown -R les /home/les/

chgrp -R users /home/les/

Also, while logged in as root, I disabled SELinux (Fedora’s Security Enhanced Linux security policy application.)

Then I enabled rpmfusion’s rawhide repositories using the command-line instructions for alpha/betas, etc. on the rpmfusion.org website.

Currently downloading a bazillion updates and installing my favorite apps, while listening to some nice classical music on Amarok 2.o.1!
