To my dismay, after installing Fedora 12, I soon realized that the famous “Docky” theme for Gnome-Do did not come stock. After some poking around their forums I saw that there was some legal issue between Gnome-Do and Apple. Blah blah blah, I have no time for Apple’s whining and pouting. They’re interfering with my FOSS-time. One person made it clear that even though this feature has been removed from the Fedora repos, you can always install Gnome-Do from source. Ha! What a noble idea, I thought to myself. I’ve gotten so used to repos and RPMs that I haven’t had to install anything from source in quite some time. Well- that alternative install method works and I jotted it down for ya’.
I was trolling the Fedora forums when I saw a post by mariuszs on “Google Chrome in FC11“. A bit of excitement rushed through my body and I checked it out. Sure enough it lead me to the http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/ site and it left me very confused. I didn’t know what I was looking at. Lucky for me it was explained in the thread how easy it was to add this test repository for me to eventually do a:
# yum install chromium
So; i’m reposting the instructions to give it more traction.
I am experiencing a deafening silience when it comes to the audio on my Fedora box. As of this article being published I can not hear audio playing on my computer. Such as:
- MP3s, Oggs
- YouTube, Hulu, and Flash-based player
Ironically when I do a “Soundcard Detection” it does find it, I hear the test audio. I can even hear my recording that I just created in Audacity. I am at a lotal lost.
