I have this old PC Dell Inspiron 1525 with 2GB RAM and 32 bit dual core processor and I wanted to install fedora on it, but I cam accross few problems which I am documenting for further reference.
Wifi device not detected
The wifi drivers are not loaded by default, so followed this blog, basically do following:
export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware" wget http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2 tar xjf broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2 cd broadcom-wl-5.100.138/linux/ sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta.o
Slow boot problem
Since the boot process is very slow so add this line to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=SVIDEO-1:d"
Update grub using
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Continual reporting of issues
Disabled SELinux and it stopped reporting those issues. For which just change the line from
/etc/sysconfig/selinux. Need to figure out why those errors were reported in a loop.
