Yes, I know it's still a bit until it's really xmas, but this week I have my personal xmas.
I went to the computer-center and got myself a few nice things, first I got a cool LinkSys wireless-router, so that I can enjoy more freedom when my wife or I use the notebook to access the net. And then I bought something nice for my PC, another GB of RAM. Now my PC is running with two gigs in dual-channel-mode.
In some way, now nearly everything is dual. ;-) My CPU is dual-core, my RAM is dual-channel, I have a dual-boot and my DVD-writer can handle dual-layer. :-)
So I have increased the shared memory of the GPU to 256MB, and now I can always give KVM/QEmu 512MB (or if I like even 768MB) to play with.
Yesterday I installed Fedora 7 inside KVM, and it runs great! Really! It's like native, with "only" having one core and half a gig of RAM to work with.
I've been roaming around on a few FTPs and it seems they're spreading Fedora 8 already over the mirrors (as expected), but they all seem to have their configuration done right so that I cannot access the directories yet.
Well, when it's finally there, which shouldn't take much longer than a day now (it still says 2 days, but it should switch to one day tonight), I will download and test the upgrade in the virtual machine.
And since we've been talking about taking videos I think I'll capture the process with GTK-recordmydesktop.
