Hi, I am pretty new to Linux and I am planning to dual boot Fedora with Windows 10. But before doing anything I have a few doubts. I’m hoping someone can help me with them.
I have Windows(UEFI) installed on an SSD and I am planning to install Fedora on my HDD. Are the procedures same when both OS are on different drives ?
(I don’t seem to have any raid config setup)
I prefer kde desktop environment. I’m hoping the install process is same for KDE as it is for the default. Isn’t it ?
In the partitioning section, should I select automatic or is manual partitioning mandatory for dual boot ?
Also I’ve read that it is not advised to go with the latest version of Fedora as it can be unstable so opt for the previous version. Is this true ?
I tried to install other Linux distros but my laptop only boots into Windows and has no option to select the Linux distros in the boot manager. That’s why I’m thinking about giving Fedora a shot since it supports secure boot. So my question is does Fedora automatically setup grub or do we have to manually set it up like in Pop OS ?
But there seems to be a problem. There is no audio output. In the audio settings, it can be seen that the media is playing (the bars changing with change in sound level), but there is no output from the speakers. I referred some other threads, but the solution does not seem to work for me.
Thank you for answering. I am not sure what exactly is the cause of the problem in my case. I tried following the instructions in other threads referring to a similar problem but none worked for me. So I reinstalled Fedora and now the sound just works fine.
