Fedora 15 (LoveLock) – Things to do after installation

Recently I shifted from ubuntu 11.04 to fedora 15 (64 Bit), the graphics of fedora are pretty nice. As Fedora is redhat based, so its very different from ubuntu and hard to operate likely for basic users. I faced many problem regarding the installing the basic software, I found solutions by searching so hereby I share with everyone.

1) Adobe Flash Player only for 64 bit.

Download ->


Extract ->

tar xzvf flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz

Move to mozilla plugins folder ->

su -c 'cp /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/'

The solution will work only for firefox, if you also use Google Chrome, you need to do an extra step after this

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugin/ /opt/google/chrome/plugins

Restart your browsers and Hope it works.

2) Nvidia Graphic Drivers

First of all, add rpmfusion repositories ->

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck'

Install the Driver ->

su -c "yum install -y nvidia-settings nvidia-kmod"

REMEMBER, Do not Reboot, one step left, or you will face a Blank Screen ->

su -c "nvidia-xconfig"

after this to ensure that computer will run properly again, we will recheck ->

sudo gedit /bot/grub/grub.conf

look for rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0 in the file, if you found it, then it is okay, otherwise add code in the end of the file and make sure it is not commented ( # is used for comments).

Now you can reboot your machine, use this for configuring your graphic settings ->
su -c "nvidia-xconfig"

3) Broadcom Wireless Drivers

Adding the Repositories, both free and non-free ->

su -c 'rpm -Uvh'

su -c 'rpm -Uvh'

Update ->

sudo yum update

Install Wireless Drivers

sudo yum install kmod-wl

Restart your system, Hope this works for you, worked for mine too !
