Installing Fedora 23 in dual-boot and post-installation

I’ve just installed Fedora 23 from scratch in dualboot (with an existing windows partition). The installation is better and better and you do not need to create the partition under windows. Just downloaded the iso file from fedora website and burnt it on a DVD. Then reboot.

The installation was done on a DELL latitude E6540. To boot on the DVD, press F12 key while you still see the DELL logo. There, you should see an option to boot from the DVD first instead of the hard drive.

Then Fedora installation should now guide you intuitively. The only tricky part will be that you should create a partition, shrinking the existing partition to be able to install Fedora.

I won’t enter into more details and I encourage you to visit the fedora website would you have any question.

Here below are some of the post-installation similarly to what I did in another post related to F19 Fedora19.

One main difference is that the yum tool has an alternative named dnf.

First, update the packages:

dnf update

Firefox related

Firefox has also many addons. I use the following ones:

adblock plus


dnf install AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i486linux_enu.rpm
dnf install nspluginwrapper.i686 libcanberra-gtk2.i686 adwaita-gtk2-theme.i686 PackageKit-gtk3-module.i686

Other useful tools

dnf install vlc p7zip gnome-tweak-tool 

Gnome specific

The minimize/maximize windows can be added to windows. First, start gnome-tweak-tool.

Then, go to Windows. You should see a button to activate the min/max buttons.

Some packages for development

dnf install git vim meld gvim ipython python-virtualenv R-core R-devel PyQt4-devel  autoconf
