I installed 'fedora 17' 2 days ago. I worked fine at first. When I tried to play a song in rythmbox it asked for a plug-in that it later couldn't find.
So I opened an application, 'Software update' or something like that, and it found 732 plug-ins.
And when they were downloaded a message appeared saying that because an unknown error it couldn't install them.
When I later tried to use fedora 17 in the beggining, I think it's called the GRUB said that there was an error with a '/fontconfig'. Wich was from the uninstalled plug-ins.
Then I tried to download VLC Media Player, it couldn't install it because there was an "unfinished" process and the terminal suggested me to run 'yum-complete-transaction' so I did. After doing so for something like 5 times without a result I decided to erase the packages that the last process mentioned several times (now I know I shouldn't have deleted'em).
Now my fedora 17 won't start. The first line says something about powernow-k8.
And then asks me for a code
Something like that.
I really want to learn fedora, I searched about how to reinstall it but I found out that if I erase the fedora 17 partition I will need a Windows CD because the MBR will be screwed so my PC would be unbootable.
And my Windows 7 isn't exactly 'legit' so I don't have the CD.
Could anyone give me a tip? Please
