Dear fellow testers,
I am currently running rawhide on two machines, a barebones ASUS machine(~5 yr old) and a
Toshiba Laptop. I have other machines that run Fedora 9 respectively and one of them has
a busted NTFS partition and I am wanting to try to keep my existing Fedora 9 partition as
it is and on the NTFS partition destroy the data(since it does not boot and ntfs-3g does
not mount it, even with force option) and looking to install Fedora rawhide on it, if F10
Beta Release is coming soon or attempt a network install
and use ext4 filesystem:
I have read that when installing one has to use ext4 as a boot option is that correct?
How soon will F10 Beta hit the mirrors?
A friend of mine is building me a new machine (Quad Core with 4GB memory which should help
in testing) and I want to test the ext4 filesystem as well. I already know about the
issues running rawhide as I have been a tester since Fedora 5 Test 2 old system of
releases. The Asus machine has been my main testing machine for a good while only down
time was when hard drive went down, installed new one and installed another test version
Fedora 6 Test version or Fedora 7 can't remember and I was back on my feet again.
I have read the documentation to attempt a net/http install but I have attempted one
several times, but I get discouraged because I see many messages like repond.xml ???. Is
there any nice HOW-TO for a flawless install directly from a connected network so that I
can use that space(NTFS busted partition) and install Fedora 10 Beta/Rawhide. I can use
Gparted/SystemRescueCD to wipe that partition clean and boot Fedora net install/net.iso
media with ext4 boot option.
Thanks for answers and advice provided. If the Beta is coming soon, I will preferably
wait and use it to install it on at least one of the two machines and the new one as soon
as it is ready.
