[blag-whereto] somewhat BLAG-ified Fedora 10

The firmware it's looking for is free software firmware and this is the file:


To turn off selinux, edit /etc/selinux/config

Make sure you are actually booting the libre kernel, when I installed it, the fedora issued kernel was still default in grub.

Just booted Fedora 10 with linux-libre for the first time.  When installing it seemed to also want to install kernel-firmware, so I installed without dependencies like so (as root):

rpm -ivh --nodeps kernel-libre-

Also edited the "kernel" line in grub.conf to disable SELinux by appending "selinux=0" to the very end.  Boots without issues.

Naturally the total BLAG-ification of Fedora 10 involves much more than this, but it's a start.  :^)
