I have installed Fedora 18.
I agree with the above article: the installation software is ugly and
I have a Linux-only system, no dual boot. This makes things easier. I
always make a backup of my important data and start with completely fresh
installs for every new Fedora version I install. This should make things
even more easy.
I started with the LXDE live CD. Then I clicked the "install to disk"
But I had to repeat the installation process three times before I could
boot F18 succesfully. At one moment my system booted twice every time.
After the first inlog, the system started a second inlog screen. And after
I had updated my software, the bootloader refused to show the latest
I tried the complete install again. Now my system would not boot at all.
Strange. I probably clicked something wrong somewhere in the totally
confusing installer interface.
I had already tried Fedora 18 beta pre-release on my netbook. This worked
So I decided to try starting from the Fedora 18 beta version of the LXDE
Live CD iso.
This worked. Finally. And after a long yum update session I now have a
working Fedora 18 system, including RPMfusion and PlanetCCRMA repo stuff.
I am happy with it now, but I would not recommend it to an average user.
I am sure there are a lot of really good things in F18. But the installer
is NOT one them.
