2012-08-06 03:14:42 -0500 asked a question fedora 17 livusb dont boot in macbook

Hello, I have a Macbook white 4.1 core2duo 4gb of ram, my HDD its broken so for the moment I want to use it with liveusb of fedora 17, but the live USB don't boot after the grub menu I created the USB from window, with the live USB creator tool from fedora, insert the USB this starts but after the grub selection nothing happens, it waits and if press a key returns to the grub menu, i try a ubuntu live usb and it boot and starts perfectly, I noticed that ubuntu use grub 1.99 and fedora uses grub 0.97-93, I have no hard drive in my macbook so I want to use it with a fedora liveusb, as I can do to make the USB boot and the system starts? or how I can replace the grub for the Ubuntu grub? I don't want use Ubuntu liveusb because my Macbook touchpad never work good in Ubuntu and the persistent memory for save changes no works too, to that y want use fedora its my favorite distro.

So in resume the live USB of fedora 17 don't boot or start after the grub menu I attached a pictures

2012-01-18 18:31:51 -0500 asked a question start script on boot fedora 16

hi people,

i have a problem i need start a script for my fan on boot, like a new service, but im try the add the next lines on my script:

#chkconfig: 345 85 15
#description: smcfancontrol

save it in /etc/init.d/

and in terminal:

chkconfig --add smcfancontrol

but if I do this, and reboot my system does not start again, I have to start with the live cd and delete my script smcFanControl to make the system start again.

I am doing wrong?.

also try to create a script that contains my root password and followed the command to start the script of the fan, and then add it to gnome-session-properties.

but does not work does not start with the login, the script is good because I can start it manually without problems

any idea
