Hi, i reinstalled fedora before reading your message. I did it in my way i removed the two windows partitions in the installation process. Now i have in the file system some 24GB. I have another problem now. I trying to install gcc because i didn't choose to do so during the installation process. I am using the menu "applications --> add remove software". After that i have an alert box saying that an other program is blocking access to information about software. Do you have an idea about how i can resolve that?
