/bootwhich I wanted it to wipe clean and do a fresh install. In anaconda partition table editor, it was weird that I had to copy the LABEL information over to the mount points, since anaconda didn't know where any of the mount points were supposed to be.
I chose to customize the installed software choices based on prior experience.
For the dual-boot setup: Once F8 installed, boot from DVD/CD into read-only rescue mode, grab the boot partition start via,
dd if=/dev/sda3 of=linux_bootsec.bin bs=512 count=1and scp linux_bootsec.bin somewhere. Boot up windows and scp it back to C:\, then edit the XP bootloader (after taking a backup of the file),
boot.ini(which need to make visible via
attrib -R -S -H C:\boot.inifrom a command window) according to this guide. I changed the timeout to 3 sec, and made linux the default. There seems to be no problem with the BIOS 1024 cylinder limit (8.5GB) since my linux boot is over 10GB into the drive.
/root/and install as usual after any kernel changes. Here's my xorg.conf

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel options snd-card-0 index=0 position_fix=1 model=ref options snd-hda-intel index=0 position_fix=1 model=refThis was inspired by this advice, but seems to have no effect: the following mixers still only see a single capture level control, and no course switch: gnome mixer, pulseaudio mixer, aumix, alsamixer.
1) Go to Playlists -> Smart Playlists -> Collection -> All Collection, drag it over to right side (playlist). It will start playing - stop it! 2) Ctrl-A to Select all. 3) Click Devices, and iPod contents will show on left side. 4) Drag the highlighted block from right to left iPod window. Lots of queued tracks to copy will show. 5) Finally hit Transfer (which now should be clickable).I'm pretty sure this doesn't erase existing files on iPod.
A couple of times the hfsplus has mounted as read only; you will then need to use hpmount, failing that, is journaling has somehow been enabled, plug it in a Mac and do a diskutil disableJournal volumeName.
To organize MP3 collections and set Album, Artist, etc tags, install
msttcorefonts, and MS webcore fonts as described here
cd ~; mkdir CVS; cd !$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/sources/emacs co -r emacs-unicode-2 emacs cd emacs ./configure --with-gtk --enable-font-backend --with-xft setarch i386 -R make bootstrap echo "Emacs.font: DejaVu Sans Mono-8" >> ~/.XdefaultsI don't really know which fonts can be inserted in ~/.Xdefaults here. Note that emacs ignores fonts in ~/.emacs
Also note that emacs does not use the fonts perfectly: if you look very carefully you'll see that if a w, %, or @ are in the character before the cursor, they become bolder with each cursor flash (antialiasing doesn't work). This is pretty minor.
Install googleearth, xcdroast, xfig, tetex-prosper. audacity in fedora-extras doesn't have mp3 support, and won't work even if you tell it where liblame.so is, so got audacity-nonfree from the Livna yum repo.
binary file nearly works
(version 1.07), the problem being missing fonts in menus (this was
not a problem for version 1.04 under FC5). This is fixed by installing
Brilliant software, though (thank-you SigBlips!)
freeglut-devel, which also gives you the Mesa GLU libraries needed for Matlab below.

/proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state(takes 5 sec to update) you can compute power consumption in various states:
CPU0,1 idle (both 1Ghz) wireless on LCD max brightness 22W CPU0,1 idle (both 1Ghz) wireless on LCD min brightness 17W CPU0 100%, CPU1 idle wireless on LCD max brightness 26.5W CPU0,1 both 100% wireless on LCD max brightness 33W CPU0,1 idle (both 1Ghz) wireless off LCD max brightness 21WSo wireless consumes about 1+-0.2W (regardless of transmitting or receiving). LCD brightness range accounts for 3W, and both CPUs maxing out increases consumption by about 50%. Power consumptions are similar to the i8100 which only has one CPU.
