    Default Fedora Installation Attempt #2

    This is the second time I've installed Fedora. This time, it's Fedora 7. Obviously, it has issues:

    1. Huge lag when opening windows/applications
    2. Can't access the internet. Network card recognized, but can never find the IP.

    Those 2 have bothered me the most, and I had to re-install Windows again 'cause I can't survive without the internet and I'd go nuts waiting for my applications to load.

    *sigh*

    I was looking forward to Fedora

    I had this issue only with Fx in FC2 -- it was OK again in FC3. Perhaps you forgot to install graphics card drivers?
    2. Can't access the internet. Network card recognized, but can never find the IP.
    What card is it?

    I can't really install the graphic card drivers if I can't get access to the internet
    It's a nVidia 7300GS; and supported. I'm pretty sure it's not the problem, cause it doesn't even say "Starting ......" for a while.

    What card is it?

    Apparently you need the sk98lin driver from Dag. That's for FC4, though, I can't find anything on FC7 -- worth a go, anyway.

    I agree. Perhaps ask on fedoraforum.org or #fedora?

    Hmm... It seems like Fedora has released 7.9
    Aww... all that bandwidth gone down the drain.
