I've been using Ubuntu for over a year, and I've decided to give Fedora a go!
I have a number of questions (that are probably very simple to answer)
1. How do I add my account to the sudoers list? (and is there any point?)
2. How do I set a network proxy for yum? (in Ubuntu you had to create a file in /etc/apt/apt.conf with a proxy line)
3. Whenever I type a command like "gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist" I get a whole bunch of terminal spew like:-
(gedit:3559): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/
for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)
and it repeats the GConf error loads of times... but does actually open gedit with the correct file.
4. (How do / Can) you enable restricted drivers? E.g. the ATI fglrx driver.
5. Where is xorg.conf?
I think that's all for now.
