Fedora 8 (Werewolf) has been released! Fedora is a community supported project and is distributed for free. It is a very good choice for developers and high tech enthousiasts using Linux in non critical environments. Red Hat Enterprise Linux ( RHEL ) is based on Fedora but it costs money. The advantange is that you can get support from Red Hat. But enough with RHEL. Just like with Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7 I wrote this guide to help you with some common installation tasks that might be useful for you. Everything has been tested on my system and it works! Learn how to set up extra repositories, add video/dvd and audio codecs, install useful applications, configure Firefox's plugins, install compiz-fusion and much more!


** Note: If a command starts with a $ it means that it has to be executed as user, whereas if it starts with # it means it has to be executed as root.

** Note: If you are unfamiliare with linux console or if you want to learn more about Linux commands you can take a look at my Basic Linux Commands guide.

** Note: For editing text files in the following guide I use nano, a terminal based editor. You can instead use gedit if you are in Gnome or kedit if you are in KDE.

** Note: Because of the many sites that are direct linking to my guide I face heavy traffic. If you wish to donate to help me pay for the hosting and bandwidth you can make a donate. Thank you!
