After wading through fedora-testing emails, I was quite hesitant to change my desktop to Fedora 10. Why?
- I have a working CentOS 5.2 and it’s working fine.
- The download keeps getting paused and I can’t be bothered to make it faster.
- I’m being lazy. Fedora-testing has those scary scenarios that I want to veer away from then. 😀
So now, after banking in my first full weekend and finally getting that massage, I’m lethargic no more! Yay!
- The boot up sequence is clean, must be the new bootloader – plymouth. Definitely looks like Windows booting up.
- Was able to set static IP using System->Preferences->Network Configuration on first try.
- Installed Adobe Flash 64-bit easily. No shamanistic rituals required.
- Download the package from Adobe.
- Extract libflashplayer.so from the tar.gz package.
- Move libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins.
- Peeked on the ext4 option while disk partitioning. I chickened out and installed ext3. Maybe later.
