Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to a missing repodata directory ... and there was this file ffb0e227e2cdd8a2b3609b65d7f38f6c1e756b437405b2918d6d36ebe59a0cb4 that was in the repodata dirtectory that couldn't be read or something like that.I was in disbelief, so I tried going to the FTP site and looked up went to /pub/centos/6.0/os/x86_64/repodata and apparently the files were different than the one in the ISO. Then I deleted all of those from the repodata directory and replaced it with this one. Voila - my CentOS 6 is finally installed on my Dell Vostro V131!
OK so I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 with ATI's fglrx proprietary driver on my HP 6930p with Samsung 2443BW 24" monitor but the screen resolution got stuck at 1280x1024. Here's how I made it to work in its native resolution.
You can either use root or just add sudo before each command.
root@ubuntugekko:/# xrandr --newmode "1920x1200_60" 193.16 1920 2048 2256 2592 1200 1201 1204 1242 -HSync +Vsync
If you tested it and it works, then create a file in your home directory called .xprofile with the following in it:
prana@ubuntugekko:~$ cat .xprofile
xrandr --newmode "1920x1200_60.00" 193.16 1920 2048 2256 2592 1200 1201 1204 1242 -HSync +Vsync
xrandr --addmode CRT1 "1920x1200_60.00"
xrandr --output default --mode "1920x1200_60.00"
