Sadly, after all of my troubles with Gentoo, my switch to Fedora hasn’t been easy so far. Currently, I am stuck, trying to get the Live CD to allow me to install to the hard drive. The problem isn’t in the installation itself - its the fact that the Live CD is crashing at random intervals. I am currently downloading the Fedora DVD, which is not a Live medium, but if I discover that Fedora is regularly crashing on my machine, I’m likely to switch to another distro once more.
Unfortunately, I have no sure way of telling what the problem may be. It could either have to do with problems in Fedora, or it might have to do with problems with my hardware, which is certainly beginning to show its age in very unfortunate ways.
