I am having problems installing Fedora 14.
I am reasonably new to Linux and decided to start running Linux on my
home PC. It was a great learning experience working with Windows 7
When I installed Fedora, I was asked to select some software. Each
option I selected indicated a network connection was required. I
assume that was to use YUM to install updated packages.
Anyway, I had no network connection. I use a Wireless Linksys
WMP300N. This uses the Broadcom BCM4321 chip set ( as seen from lspci
wireless network connection. It is better to do the install with plug-in
connection. Then go to wireless after you install. Otherwise don't
select software until you have a minimum system installed. Another
approach is to do the initial install using a F14 Live CD.
If someone knows how to install a DVD using wireless I would be
interested in hearing about it,
Some threads I have read indicated that the 4321 chip set was
supported under the Kernel, but I do not see evidence of this. I have
also read threads that suggested I install the Broadcom-wl rpm which
was available on Fedora’s web site. I searched the ISO media I
burned and the web site but did not find anything.
I have also scanned the Fedora14 install doc. The doc does not seem
to describe what I saw during the install.
I would appreciate if somebody can point me to a starting place to get
this sorted out.
The install I did do was very minimalistic. It did not install GCC.
I see that on the media but it has many dependencies. I would love to
use yum to install everything I need, but I need a network to do it.
Thank you in advance.
