OK people, I'd like some help here. At this point, FC5 is running, but some devices are not working.

Here are my choices:

Option 1: Try to get things working with the current packages. On the plus side, the guide will always for FC5 on the 600X because the FC5 distribution is fixed. On the minus side, a lot of work may already have been done for me.

Option 2: Get on the net, yum update then get things working. Plus: Some things might just work. (I think sound will work, for example.) Work saver. Minus: This guide is a snapshot of the latest FC5 updates as of right now... meaning the guide requires maintenance or is out of date.

Opinions welcome. --Whizkid 16:24, 26 April 2006 (CEST)

After installing on a 570, and updating the packages, sound worked just fine, so I'll do an update and go from there. --Whizkid 16:29, 30 April 2006 (CEST)

Updating it is

I decided to update the packages and go from there. The sound started working immediately... so I got that going for me. :) --Whizkid 14:06, 3 May 2006 (CEST)

FC5 installation problems on 600x

I am trying to get FC5 onto my 600x, but I'm getting a "Fedora Core CD was not found" error. I've unsuccessfully tried a few install options (acpi=off, apm=off and others). I've installed fc4 and other flavours of unix on several Thinkpads till now, but this is stumping me. --Cheers, Miguel

Have you tried using turning off DMA? Try the ide=nodma install option. BrianTung 10:00, 10 May 2006 (CEST)
