Hi guys, newer, but damn proud linux user. (4 months clean from my m$ addiction lol) I've test driven several distros, but really have come to enjoy the fedora community, so I guess I have a distro! Now that I have settled on Fedora, I've started optimizing my setup using the resources provided by the knowledgeable fedora community.
You guys really do rock, and let me tell you, you really make it easy for the more inexperienced members.
So here goes, Just a few general question for a bit of clarity. Remember, I'm still pretty much a noob so some of these may have very easy or obvious answers. I'll try to keep most of my questions in here and edit this post to keep it up to date so others may use it as a resource.
SYSTEM SPECS: HP laptop dv8309us
will update with edit when it becomes relevant
#1 What can I do, or what do I need to learn to "keep what I've done so far" system config-wise?
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy getting in there and tweaking and configuring but if I need to yum install gsynaptics then nano xorg.conf to enable it one more time I may lose a bit of my sanity. I'm sure there is a better way.
#2 I also need to work on my quick trigger to reinstall fresh, I know I'm missing out on learning by not correcting what I've broken. Does anyone have beginner friendly link for fixing things I shouldn't have done?
I know I've looked at some logs that have documented changes I've made, cool, but not so useful to me because I've not learned to use this information.
Thanks for the help guys, I hope this thread can be helpful to others some day.
