I installed Fedora 9 by network installation. I had Fedora 8. (Fedora is one of the biggest linux distribution.) Soon after that, I tried to backup my log of irc chat and so on via Brasero. And I failed. It doesn’t complete to burn DVD-R correctly when I tried to burn it from the project directly. I found the bugzilla entry of Ubuntu: Brasero requieres 4GiB on /tmp to write an iso image
You can install it without a DVD media with the way below. (I forgot to record them. So I write it by my memory.)
- put Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso on another server’s root of the nfs exported directory. (Now I name)
- su –
- mount -o loop Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso /opt
- cd /opt/isolinux
- Copy vmlinuz and initrg.img to /boot
- vim /boot/menu.lst
(Add these lines.)
title Fedora 9 Installer
kernel /vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda1 selinux=0 reiserfs
- shutdown -r now
- Go to the selection screen and select “Fedora 9 Installer”.
I’ve used only Fedora and Debian. So I know only those two. I love Linux for its CLI, especially bash. I found that I don’t know bash well but it let me use the commandline very conveniently.
