Live USB woes...Fedora and Ubuntu don't play nice together
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 5, 2009
I hope someone out there knows what I need to do here:
1. I have Fedora running on a desktop
2. I have a Dell Mini 9 running Ubuntu 8.04
3. There's something borked with the Dell Mini so I need to reinstall Ubuntu, but I don't have an optical drive.
4. I want to use a USB drive with a Live Ubuntu version on it to reinstall Ubuntu...BUT...
All the installers seem to assume that if you're running Fedora you want to install Fedora, and Ubuntu users seem to only provide the Ubuntu version in .deb form, so I can't get the Ubuntu version to run on my desktop.
Anyone out there know how to use Fedora (I'm running FC8 ) but install a bootable Ubunutu onto my USB drive? I've got a ton of other stuff on there so I really don't want to have to repartition and so on.
This is the first time I've done anything with booting via USB so maybe I'm just missing something really vital -- but nothing has worked so far. I've tried finding a .rpm version of the Ubuntu usb creator tool and
Does Ubuntu/Canonical have a nice PDF like Fedora/Red Hat

I came across http://docs.fedoraproject.org/user-g...User_Guide.pdf yesterday and was wondering if there was something similar for Ubuntu.

Fedora 7, clean, nice and polished

the last fedora (core those times) I've used was FC5. so I wanted to see what's the state of the Fedora distro so I've installed Fedora 7 5 days ago and I must confess I really like it. the installer from the livecd ran just fine (+ for anaconda), all my hardware was well supported (nothing unexpected as I have a quite old rig), I love the artwork and the overall feeling of the distro. It was the only distro of which I didn't feel the need to change the default look. the fonts (Liberation font I think) are very nice and crisp, sorry to say but they simply look better than the default ones of ubuntu. other things...yum is reasonably fast, although is lagging behind apt-get (nothing beats apt-get/aptitude), after I've added the livna repo I was able to install the multimedia codecs and so. I don't know if it's just am impression, but Fedora feels more professional. I don't know if exactly what I'd recommend to a beginner, there are things that are not so out-of-the-box obvious and made e

Ubuntu 11.04 vs Fedora 15
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 16, 2011
So I'm a long-time Windows user and I haven't really used Linux for my desktop (although I've used it for my personal server). I love Windows but I want to check out either Ubuntu or Fedora and see if I can live without it (After all, free is good)
I hear the main difference in discussion between Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04 is the desktop renderer... Gnome 3 vs Unity. I've read some articles that discuss the differences between the two, but even still I don't really know which one is the best for me.
So for someone coming from Windows 7, can anyone explain which is the "best" choice and why? I prefer objective reasons over subjective, if possible. I'll list a couple of things I do/use in Windows so you can maybe compare which distribution is best suited for me:
Browser: Google Chrome (beta channel). I assume Chrome for Linux is exactly the same as windows in terms of functionality.For version control, I use SVN... and TortoiseSVN with it. There is no TortoiseSVN for L
Ubuntu vs Fedora vs OpenSUSE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2010
I know it is a Ubuntu Forum. I also know that folks in this forum love Ubuntu. Though Ubuntu is the most popular, Fedora and OpenSUSE is still "second" populars out there. I am wondering what will be your opinion about these three distros? How do you compare these three distros? Such as; which one is more easier, more beautiful, more stable, what are the pros and cons etc?
I've not tested anything other than Ubuntu and Mint. So I really wondering how much Fedora and OpenSUSE differ from Ubuntu? That's why I wanted to know your opinions guys.
Fedora, Gentoo or Arch?

This may seem like a strange topic, but out of the three, which one gets your vote?
Enjoying Fedora 18
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 21, 2013
If there is interest in trying out F18, I offer a couple of tips
The Live image does not allow you to set host name at install, so you will need to use this command after install:
hostnamectl set-hostname newhost.newdomain --static
The Full DVD image or Network Install image allows you to set host name.
The new anaconda is set up as a hub and spoke approach for install, more info here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/NewInstaller
After install, F18 is smooth and stable
