Hi guys and gals,
I'm new to Fedora Core. Used Red Hat from version 5 to 9, but strayed when Fedora Core came out. I've been all over the Linux distro map since then. I'm coming back to RH off a Ubuntu stint.
In Ubuntu the update/package manager is apt-get. It was really simple to upgrade the kernel architecture on a new install... just sudo apt-get install (whatever was appropriate, such as linux-686). Really simple.
I started installing FC5 today around 11AM, and by 1:30 had worked my way through the FC5 guide at http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...ion_notes.html
. The one thing that guide didn't have was the method to update my kernel to the appropriate architecture.
So I fiddled with Yum Extender thinking it was pretty much like Synaptic to Ubuntu/Debian. it is. I found the kernel listed and to my surprise it said the kernel installed was already i686, which is what I need.
Is this right? Does FC5 install the right kernel per architecture on install? Or am I misreading something?
Thanks for your help in advance.
