Fedora 6 Horror

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I thought this distro was gonna be pretty nice, honestly. When it first booted up, everything seemed to be working nicely. Then i went to go get flash player, and it won't install (through the browser). So i went to adobe and got the tar and tried to install through there, but it wants the directory where my Mozilla Firefox is installed, and i can't locate that. Help? Then i rebooted my computer and the sound doesn't work. I have it set to my soundcard (not onboard, and yes, volume is up) and i get no sound. It stopped working after i restarted it, just like Ubuntu. Oh, and it doesn't have any music playing software. Grr... Any fixes? Mandriva seems to be the only one who was nice to me and "just worked."

For Media Players go to Applications then at the bottom Add/Remove software then select the list tab. You'll be able to view a list of packages. I like amarok, banshee and xmms are popular too. XMMS is just like winamp.

If you didn't install Firefox 2.0 than firefox is under ~/.mozilla/firefox(~ means home folder) To veiw hidden files in Nautilus just press ctrl+h
You shouldn't need to tell the flashplayer-install the location of firefox though.

For the sound, during the install did you test the sound and did it work then?

Ok, so i got AmaroK and i got the sound working. I don't know how to get FF2.0 working, though. I don't know if it's really worth it anyway...
