      i run fedora 17 x86_64 and find it excellent. The new grub2
      configuration, for any distro can be found here;
      Useful Grub2 config editor :

      I find it a handy addition (fc17x86_64) in ┬┤system settings > startup
      & shutdown┬┤ when installed.It does not install as a package menu item
      , but part of system settings etc.
      PackagesPackages are the most straightforward way to install GRUB2
      Editor. Simply select your distribution and architecture below:
      http://ksmanis.wordpress.com/downloads/
      <http://ksmanis.wordpress.com/downloads/>
      RepositoriesOn the other hand, you may subscribe to a repository in
      order to automatically get new updates:
      For Fedora 17 run the following as root:
      cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
      wget
      http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:ksmanis/Fedora_17/home:ks\
      manis.repo
      yum install kcm-grub2
      NB: Installs in System settings > startup & shutdown > Grub2
      BootloaderIt is not a menu package.
      Along with this (redhat people) set yum.conf
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------\
      [main]cachedir=/var/cache/yum/$basearch/$releaseverkeepcache=1debuglevel\
      =2logfile=/var/log/yum.logexactarch=1obsoletes=1gpgcheck=1plugins=1insta\
      llonly_limit=2
      # This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the
      metadata# is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of
      not having to# download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not
      having correct# information.# It is esp. important, to have correct
      metadata, for distributions like# Fedora which don't keep old packages
      around. If you don't like this checking# interupting your command line
      usage, it's much better to have something# manually check the metadata
      once an hour (yum-updatesd will do this).# metadata_expire=90m
      # PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo# in
      /etc/yum.repos.d--------------------------------------------------------\
      ------------------------------------------installonly_limit=2
      keeps 2 kernels only in /boot and prevents it getting crowded.

      Got a set of usb headphones (logitech) & cant use the onboard volume
      controls to adj volume in 64 bit linux? If so, mention it, and I will
      give you the answer.
