Hi guys just installed fedora 13 and had some problems setting up. using 500gb hard drive on Intel i686. Upgraded from f 12 and when loading the new system, partitions could not be setup manually. No access to logical volume setup, so used complete reformat. That also didn't reformat the drive correctly, so used spfdisk and reformatted the drive as it had errors on it.Then re-installed the system and then booted. had to do yum update as no kpackagekit access. All fine after yum update. all seems good so far now!. Have been playing with red-hat for 10 years now and have been waiting for this to be as good as it is now, just as well as was getting sick of windows.Steve!

It's been a long time since I have been using Fedora. And now I have the Fedora 23 and it has been a week but I had not quite known about a thing. The thing is related to downloading a package via terminal without the dnf command. Well if you are wondering what 'dnf' is, it is the package managing command for the new Fedora. Fedora tells that it is the deprecated version of 'yum' which was its major package managing command for up to Fedora20.

Maybe it is a bug of fedora or it's the same policy that the new Fedora has. But I think as a linux user there must be privacy and at least ask for sudo password for any package to download or install.

It's been a long time since I have been using Fedora. And now I have the Fedora 23 and it has been a week but I had not quite known about a thing. The thing is related to downloading a package via terminal without the dnf command. Well if you are wondering what 'dnf' is, it is the package managing command for the new Fedora. Fedora tells that it is the deprecated version of 'yum' which was its major package managing command for up to Fedora20.

So today I wanted to execute a command to download files through url. That command was 'axel'. I just did this:

$ axel

Then the terminal told me that axel was not installed. And so it offered me if I would let it download and install by the terminal itself, no dnf command to execute no nothing. I was waiting if it would ask me for 'sudo' password but it did not.


Hence the package was downloaded and installed without requiring the sudo password which I must would have to if I were going through 'dnf'.

Maybe it is a bug of fedora or it's the same policy that the new Fedora has. But I think as a linux user there must be privacy and at least ask for sudo password for any package to download or install.
