I have install f19 (and f18) on a 8Gb USB Key via virt-manager (or via some other virtual machine environment, like VirtualBox).

Create a new linux guest without disk, share USB key to it, boot from DVD and install f19 on USB key disk.
Work great for me.

Or put USB into your PC/Notebook, boot from DVD and install on USB key.

I don't know why, but after rebooting my f21 server it goes to the 'initial setup' screen. It's already all setup - how can I get out of this?

I did a test install of Fedora 19 on a spare machine and discovered that MySQL is no longer part of the Distro being replaced by MariaDB.

Has anyone tried to run WordPress in conjunction with MariaDB and if so any problems.

I've followed the instructions to install the flash plugin by downloading the
YUM version and then installing the RPM. I got no errors when doing any of
this. However, flash still does not work in Firefox. If I do 'about:plugins'
it isn't listed.

Any suggestions on what to try next. All I'm getting from Google is variations
of the same instructions I've already done.

Installed Fedora 26 on recommendation of a Scribus developer. Installed about 30 packages per his advice.

But when I try to compile a program the machine can't find C++. So what is the package I need to install to compile C++ programs?.

Another question. On Slackware (yes I am one of those) I can use kdm to get to a window function ( I preferXFCE). How do I set up a window manager in Fedora and how do I access it?
