presto – Real save to Network bill

with Fedroa 11, I installed ‘presto’ and
start using on my home computer. It works
really well. Today first time, I saw its real work.

Presto reduced the updates to 35 M from 259 M which is a 87% savings.
Package(s) data still to download: 1.8 M
———

Total Download Size for Packages: 261MB
with Presto:
Download delta size: 35 M
+ 1.8MB

so finally I have to download only ~37MB, which
is quite small as compared to real size of packages.

How to use that:
just install following pacakges:
presto, yum-presto
and it will work automatically. This is smart update
method to save my internet bill, which is based on
Download MBs.

Fedora is not first, but now it is supporting.
(opensuse already using detla RPM, even detla
iso also).

Fedora 11 – New phase for Indic Language

Fedora 11 got release last week and it
is best Operating system for Indic language.
When I said best, there are various reasons
for it.

(*) Live CD – One live CD for multiple languages
Download Live CD

Just download a single Live CD, boot your
system with it and Please don’t forgot to
Press “Languages” Tab at Login screen.
Yes, you can get various Language including
Indic. Nepali, Maithili, Urdu are new language
available for Fedora 11. All other
languages, like Assamese, Bengali,
Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi,
Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Sinhala
are already there.

No need to make and distribute separate
Live CD for each language, just select any
language and you can get everything ready
with that.
I tested my language Punjabi, while
selecting, Interface, Input Method are
working like pre-installed Punjabi OS.

For more information regading Fedora,
please check
Fedora 11

(*) Ibus – New Input Method with new feature:
Till fedora 11, default input method (to type
language), was SCIM, which was advanced with
various features, but logout-login again with
every change was really bad, but no worries,
now Fedora 11 has Ibus, with which you can
just change anything on fly (like Add new keymap,
language, or anything for your language) and just
start type. Yes, it is working
at the most you need to ‘restart’ you
ibus only and it works (really!). Any
change for language you and just use it.
It is quite good feature.
Interface of Ibus setting is quite simple and
small.

(*) Multimedia –
Fedora 11 is ready with all multimedia
feature, just install RPM Fusion package and
you don’t need anything more after to add to
run mp3, wma or video files.

(*) If you are found of KDE Desktop, Fedora also
provide KDE Live CD

Linux and Windows Vista SP2

from last week, I was trying to install Windows Vista SP2,
but it was failed after more than 1 hours Stages (1,2,3) due
to unknown error. Finally I tried to download EXE file instead
for ‘Windows Update’ setting. it gave some error, which
can be searched.

Error Number: x80004005

Microsoft has page about, but seems not interested to Fix it soon.
(M$ told like “…alternative is to perform a clean-install)
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/971204/

Finally search a below given workaround with help of google.

Step: 1 Remove Grub, only M$ Windows MBR

Fix MBR for remove Grub and install Windows in MBR
with following:

1) boot from Windows Vista DVD

2) Repair


3) Use ‘Command Prompt’


4) bootrec /fixboot


5) bootrec /fixmbr

yes, now your system boot only with Windows and Update Windows
and your machine will update for Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

Step: 2 – install Grub again

Now it is time for fix Linux (Fedora). Boot system with Linux (Fedora)
Installation Disk and go to ‘Rescue Mode’. Use following command
when get console:

1) $ grub

2) grub> root (hd0,2) (where 2 is my /boot parition /dev/sda3))

3) grub> setup (hd0)


4) grub> setup (hd0,2)

So, now Windows Vista SP2 install and linux is working.
