YUM? that sounds like too much work...
for my liking. We are talking about using the command line, which I know very little of. I probably would try another Distro. instead. but if you must have Fedora, I probably download Fedora and make another disc...and hope it will work this time around. Good luck. Oh I just install Fedora 22 and youtube seem to worked ok, and the firefox that was with Fedora is version 38.....
There are other tools...
that give GUI functionality to packages.
If that's not using the commandline then...
I didn't see anything about how to add package/s or update. That's what OP want, a step by step instruction but I didn't know enough to help. So I suggest maybe latest version or different Distro..
It's pretty simple
Where you would use "apt-get" in a Debian based distro, you use "yum" in Fedora based distros.
Here's a YouTube Tutorial >
Anyway, I hope OP got his/her problem...
solved, one way or the other.
This message reply was the most helpful for me to make sense of anything.
I think what the troubleshooter is saying :
run the bunch of files packages that are incompletely installed.
However the fedora 12 is working but has missing bits in pieces.
The outstanding issue of youtube still remains.
I will update after watching the above tutorial which has by far contributed in some of the troubleshooters errors.
What the troubleshooter is telling you
is to use YUM to update Fedora and than FF since V.6 is also out of date.
yum package ISO cd install
I however managed to make an ISO image on CD to install a fresh copy of Fedora but was close enough.
After making the copy I ran the command from root $
se -c 'yum -y install liveusb-creator'
and I have no idea what the above command did?
and it started doing something than came up with bunch of errors !
so I am still without Youtube running on firefox & 3/4 of packages not updated?
Any help appreciated?
download and burn the ISO to a DVD and install it ?
You're complicating this ..
Also remember to run the "integrity check"
on the DVD you burn first, to make sure you got a good and complete download of the ISO. Sometimes downloads are corrupted across the internet, especially larger ones in the gigabytes.
You can also use md5sum to check the ISO file before burning. Find a video on youtube showing how to do that, and get the correct value to check it against from the download site.
Probably you'll need to update your firefox browser
sudo yum update firefox
