This an installation report about Fedora 10 on a Hasee 4UT5RWU notebook. The hardware of this notebook features: 2 GB RAM Core 2 duo 5800@2.0 Ghz 120 GB Hard Disk DVD-RW.

It comes with Red Flag linux but I replaced it with Fedora 10 almost without any problem. To install Fedora put in the kernel parameters (GRUB): clocksource=jiffies Indeed, to install the OS I tried acpi=off atapicd noapic noagp noapm nomce nofirewire nopcmcia nosmp because the computer hangs in the boot process, but once the installation was finished I found on internet that clocksource=jiffies is enough to solve the problem.

My grub.conf file looks like:

default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64)
   root (hd0,0)
   kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 ro root=/dev/sda1 rhgb clocksource=jiffies
   initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64.img

I didn't check the card reader yet but everything else works fine: sound, wifi, touchpad, Spanish keyboard, shortcut keys, USB ports.
