The ‘Migrate to Linux’ blog

As I mentioned below, I took the plunge today and migrated to Linux. Fedora Core 3, to be exact; I’ll probably upgrade to 4 pretty soon.

I just thought I’d use this blog to keep a record of my experiences in the migration, it might help other people who are considering the move. Anyway, here we go…

Migrating to Linux – Day One:

Well, it seems to have gone pretty smoothly so far. I backed up all my data, and then ran the installation. It installed without any problems whatsoever! Only a couple of issues:

  1. It didn’t pick up my wireless network card. However, after an hour of messing around with the windows drivers and ndiswrapper, I managed to get it to work!
  2. It doesn’t seem to have built-in support for MP3s. I found this very strange, but still… downloading an MP3 player shouldn’t be much. And it could have been something I was doing wrong. I’ll let you know!
  3. Also, for some reason audio CDs don’t want to play. This, again, I found quite strange – but it could be due to dodgy hardware (I have suspicions about my CD drive!).

Um, that’s all for the time being, I’ll update this as I go along!
