Install Fedora 12 on an Eee PC 1000HE

I installed a Fedora 12 and Windows XP dual boot system on my Eee PC 1000HE some hours ago. The new shinning Fedora 12 system works great on this Eee PC, here’s some notes I wrote down during the installation and post-installation process.

Preparing for Installation

Eee PC has no CD-ROM, so that you can not install Fedora 12 from a Live CD disk. The best way for you is to download a Fedora 12 Live ISO and write this iso image to your flash drive, and then install F12 with this usb flash drive.

liveusb-creator is a cross-platform tool to do this job, it has an easy-to-use GUI which can ensure the Fedora 12 live CD iso you downloaded is correct, and, it can also ensure you write to the right USB disk. What you need is a 2GB USB disk.

Switched back to Fedora 12

It’s been so long a time since I switched to Ubuntu 9.04 before the release of Fedora 11, but now I finally switched back again and installed Constantine on my Eee PC 1000HE netbook. Fedora becomes better, and it works well on this little machine.

I still remember that Red Hat 9 is my very first Linux distribution that I tried when I was on college, although I knew how to install it after reading so many Linux books and magazines in our library, I had a very bad experience, because it doesn’t have a good browser. But things changed after my graduation when I installed a Ubuntu 6.06+Windows XP dual boot system on my office computer, this is the first time I started to use Firefox browser, it worked fine and most of the webpages could be displayed perfectly, and Linux systems left me a good expression since then.

Install Shutter in Fedora 10

Install Shutter in Fedora 10

Shutter (former named Gscrot) is an open-source feature-rich screenshot program. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window.

Shutter has a .deb package officially, which allows you very easy to install in Ubuntu Linux, but it had no .rpm package available, so things are quite difficult if you want to run it in Fedora 10 system. I tried to install months ago, but failed to install its depencies.

1 Linux App 1 Day Program on Twitter

Hello, guys, I started a program recently on Twitter since Mar. 21st this month called “1 Linux Software 1 Day“, which is aim to recommend ONE linux software ONE day to the CHINESE linux users. I think this is a good idea to introduce others a perfect linux application they would like so as to promote Linux as a lot of people still think there’s not as many software as Windows or Mac (I think a lot of people refuse Linux just because of this).
