2014-11-20 08:39:10 -0500 answered a question about boot loader

Just install normally. You can boot from your USB and follow the steps of the installer. You can either create a partition manually before installing or use the tools provided by the Mint installer to partition during the installation process.

The only thing you really have to worry about is when the installer asks you whether to install a boot loader (GRUB). Then, you have 2 choices. Since you already have a GRUB installed by Ubuntu, you can either choose to not install a new one from mint and use Ubuntu's or you can install Mint's and overwrite Ubuntu's.

Use the existing GRUB.

When the installer asks you whether to install a boot loader, say no. Once the installation has finished, reboot and load Ubuntu (Mint will not appear in the list of available OSs). From Ubuntu, refresh GRUB so it will detect your new Mint installation:

sudo update-grub

Use Mint's GRUB.

When the installer asks you whether to install a boot loader, say yes. Make sure you install it in the same location where your Ubuntu's GRUB was installed. This will probably be the master boot record (MBR) of your primary hard drive. Reboot and you should now have Mint's GRUB installed and will be able to choose Mint, Ubuntu or Windows.

2014-11-20 08:28:42 -0500 answered a question bootloader

According to the GRUB manual, the first note is a 'tempo', and each following pair of numbers are duration and pitch.

The pitch is in Hz, so in order to play nice-sounding notes (which are in tune), you'll need the frequencies of notes in the western equal temperament scale

Edit file /etc/default/grub to include following line (Here is my init tune)

GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 220 1 277 1 330 1 440 1 185 1 220 1 277 1 370 1 294 1 370 1 440 1 587 1 330 1 415 1 494 1 659 1"

Run sudo update-grub2 to apply the change.

2014-11-18 04:34:28 -0500 answered a question How to create a static IP address in Fedora 20?

If I understood correctly you want to setup static IP address to your Fedora 20 server. In my case ifcfg-em1 is eth0.

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-em1
BOOTPROTO=static --change this if you DHCP
IPADDR= --add here your static ip address
NETMASK= --add your subnet

2014-09-26 06:37:39 -0500 answered a question how to install Adobe Air in Fedora 20 ?

Click to download the Adobe Release RPM. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file. Save the .rpm file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely. In terminal, navigate to the desktop and install the downloaded rpm using the following command. This will copy the adobe GPG key to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux and adds adobe-linux-i386 as a repository.

sudo rpm -Uvh adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

Install adobeair package using the following command. During Installation, yum will ask to import the GPG key. Press "y" and then "Enter".

sudo yum install adobeair

To get the most up-to-date AIR runtime in future, simply type # yum update adobeair in terminal. You do not need to repeat steps 1-4.
