Linux Fedora Core 6

i downloaded the cd ISO images for Linux Fedora Core 6, i burned the first one to a dvd.
i used DigitalMedia Home by Roxio, the burn went file until the very end, it said that there was a error during the burn and i had to try again. I opened the cd, and found a bunch of files there. So i tried to boot up, but it said i was missing a kernel iso

any ideas?

I don't like Fedora Core 6. I had many problems with disk 3, I downloaded and burned it multiple times but each time it failed. Fedora Core 5 was fine and I hope they do better with Fedora Core 7 because I certainly will use that if the download is fine.
Some download managers will allow you perform MD5 Checksums on ISOs after you download them, so you don't end up burning coasters.

Has Gentoo updated their install program? I vaguely remember hearing something about them recommending Stage 3 installs to more people, but can't remember if that came with a more streamlined install. I've always wanted to go back to Gentoo (that laptop is long gone at this point :()
Doubt it. Though, I haven't touched Gentoo in over a year.
I always liked Stage 1. But that's cause I like to act all thirteen thirty-seven.

If you are looking for a quick OS to install there is also Ubuntu.

it is a Debian spinoff

Are you guys hashing your downloads after you get them on you machine? Granted a hash of the current Fedora Distro takes about 20 min but then you know that all the bits are there.

If you really want to be cool, check out PC-BSD and DesktopBSD and join the FreeBSD crowd.

If you're having trouble getting CDs to burn properly, that has nothing to do with the distro you're downloading. You're burning it from Windows, so it's either a Windows problem or a problem of you downloading a corrupt ISO image.

If you download with Bit Torrent, you'll save the distro provider's bandwidth AND your download will be automatically checked for integrity while it downloads.

I second the Ubuntu recommendation. Kubuntu if you prefer KDE. Ubuntu comes on a single CD, then you get whatever else you want online. I've been using Kubuntu for a few years and I like it a lot. (I switched from Fedora Core 3.)

I can install Python 2.4 on the Fedora 3 Linux system, but after I do a number of Linux utilities and commands, like yum, stop working because they were dependent on the Python 2.3 installation. What happens is that Python 2.4 replaces the /usr/bin/python module with the Python 2.4 version. If I replace /usr/bin/python with the Python 2.3 version executable, which is still on my system, that all the aforesaid modules depend on, they start...

I need to detect whether the operating system I am running on (not the Python version) is 64bit or 32bit. One requirement is that I need to include support for non-Intel/AMD architectures. The 2 ways I have thought detecting 64bit are: 1. struct.calcsize("P") == 8 2. '64' in os.uname() I'm not convinced that either one of these is really adequate. Does

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
