    will fedora run in my PC


    Hello friends
    Since i have heard about Linux(3 month) i thought that i will try it. I try to install many versions of Linux on my PC but every time i failed. I have tried UBUNTU 10.10 it does not run in GUI mode just run in Terminal similar is with case of Linux mint opensuse run for a little time but after a minute of start it hangs all input devices(keyboard and mouse) stopped working.
    This time i think to try Fedora 15. Will it run in my PC.
    MY system properties
    2.67 Intel P4 processor
    1 GB of RAM
    32 bit architecture
    NO GRAPHIC CARD.

    I have already asked this question to some persons they all say that due to no graphic card you were not able to run Linux. So before downloading Fedora i am asking to you will it run in my computer. if not then which distro should i try.
    thanks

    I'm pretty sure it will run without a GUI. I have not tried it myself though. I suggest you try to google some options and try different choices until you find something that will serve your purpose.

    As you were told on another forum nothing would be working if you had no graphics cards that includes windows, you may have a low end card or a integrated card, with that being said are you 100% sure your partitioning your hard drive correctly or have you tried Ubuntu with the windows loader ?

    Yeah, that sounds like an integrated VGA adapter - a very common one. Fedora 15 should be fine. If you are hesitant, I would recommend using the Live version of the distro first - this is a quick and easy way to check hardware compatibility. If you are satisfied with it, then you can install it later.

    Actually I ask this question because Ubuntu 10.10, opensuse 11.3 gnome,Linux mint 10 did not run. can you tell me whats reason that they not supported. I am not fully sure that there is integrated card it is just an idea. See data i put here.

    You'll need to define "Ubuntu 10.10, opensuse 11.3 gnome,Linux mint 10 did not run". Any errors or can you tell us what happens that makes you say it will not run?
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Well, I have no idea why those distros did not run (see MikeTbob's response).

    I'm fairly certain that you do have an integrated Intel graphics adapter - at least that it what googling the Intel z945c motherboard reports - anyway, where did you get that Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family info from?

    I see no reason why any of the popular linux distributions should fail. Best guess is that you somehow do something wrong, though I don't really see what it should be, other than messing around with dual boot and such, which usually still works out with distributions like ubuntu.

    Personally I'd give Debian 6.0 (squeeze) a go. The installation is very simple as long as you follow the path. Just make sure that the graphical desktop environment is installed is selected, assuming you want that, otherwise it won't be installed.


    Best of luck.

    I use a tool from internet to find out better what's graphic card am i using. see this image(remove spaces in word google )

    docs.g o o g l e.com/leaf?id=0B5ZURGN4IHlTYWI1ZmMxOWItZjQwNC00OGVlLWI3M zEtNjdlY2JmODVjNDMx&hl=en_GB&authkey=CP6CwqAF

    this is third party software tool.
    Guys now tell why opensuse,ubuntu,linux mint did not work?????????????????
    What you think about xubuntu 11.4 this has RAM requirment of 512 MB only(recommended). but this xubuntu so i am fearing that will it not run like ubuntu.
