I don't think you've properly compiled and installed Vim, that's why it's still attempting to read from the default runtime path. As you have to install Vim locally to your home directory, that is usually done via ./configure --prefix=$HOME/.local [...other configure options here...] make && make install See src/INSTALL (chapter Installation ...

sudo apt-get remove libreoffice orage brasero exfalso quodlibet gimp imagemagick ristretto xsane orage is an xfce4 dependency in at least Ubuntu, therefore removing orage will also remove xfce. To avoid this, verify the packages that will be removed are the ones you intended when using apt-get remove.

It is also possible to setup a Proxy DHCP service for PXE. Thus, the existing DHCP server does not need to be changed. A normal Linux system (e.g. a workstation) can then be used to host the preboot execution environment (PXE). Following steps are necessary to setup a PXE for net-booting a Fedora network install image (assuming also a Fedora host): Verify ...

Fedora Server doesn't come with the packages for a graphical environment installed. It's meant to be managed remotely. If you want to add one, you can, but you'll need to do that in addition to changing the default target. Try sudo yum groupinstall basic-desktop-environment or sudo yum groupinstall xfce-desktop-environment Alternately, if really what ...

It is booting into your graphical environment, however it's failing to load the environment. (You wouldn't see a cursor if X or Wayland wasn't started) This sounds like a configuration problem. I don't know the inner workings of fedora so I can't help with that, but in the meantime, if you can successfully load the GUI using startx, you could do things the ...

I think that is a bug in Fedora 21 both server and workstation bugzilla. You can try suggested workaround. Create first a Virtual machine with just an empty hard disk. After that connect your Fedora-Server-DVD-x86_64-21.iso and try to install it.

Probably don't actually have to use bsdinstall, but it provides a certain degree of confirmation. All this is actually in the man page: bsdinstall(8). I just didn't read carefully enough. For the record: The download requires 2 environment variables: DISTRIBUTIONS and BSDINSTALL_DISTSITE (BSDINSTALL_DISTDIR is optional and defaults to /usr/freebsd-dist). ...

If it helps anybody, I did manage to install the nVidia drivers using nomodeset at first, and then trying several drivers to see which one would stick. My macbook pro 2008 has an nVidia GTM 8600. The driver I used was nvidia-173. You can select this from Administration -> Driver Manager. Each time a driver failed I would be pushed to the terminal. From ...

Could you use the installation DVD as a live session? If so, find /boot/grub/grub.cfg and have a look at lines including something like linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.5.0-17-generic root=UUID=9[etc]6 ro recovery nomodeset initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-17-generic and see if the files referenced there are actually present? It wouldn't have to be a Mint LiveDVD, ...

Try installing in a Pen USB (Pen Drive)/USB, then boot the usb or penusb/pendrive from the boot menu. Does it work? Also, try unetbootin. And a blinking underscore on the top left corner means that the os was not found, but if it is stuck in there, it just cant find any os. os = operating system.

It comes with the "minimal" set of packages plus some groups like "Desktop Environment", "Development Tools". Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 Boot iso image for x86_64 (64 bit): It is just a boot ...

The OpenSuSE install can help you do this by resizing and creating your partitions for you. It should automatically use your swap partition. If not then you'll go to advanced partition settings when installing and have the swap partition be mounted to swap. However, if you want to free do this by hand (I would not recommend it). First umount the /dev/sda2 ...
