    I would like to try and earlier version of Fedora 20 with KDE. Fedora spins only has 20 with KDE.

    Any suggestions? I have an older laptop that I want to try it on. I tried 20 on a live stick and it ran ok but I am not sure how it will fly with a full install? I have Kubuntu 12.04 running well and I am laxed to place Fedeora over it if it won't work for me.

    You can get older releases of Fedora at their archive site.

    I have not installed Fedora for many years, so I can't comment on the releases.

    Good luck!

    Thanks.

    I started to install Fedora 18 and then got to the point of choosing hard drive partitions. I continued to a point that the install was not clear on what it was going to do next to my hard drives.

    When I am installing a distro I always choose manual partition but the Fedora wasn't clear if it was going to give me a choice to choose my existing partitions. One time I had a terrible experience Lubuntu. I choose to manually do the partition choices but Lubuntu decided to write over the entire hard drive. I had a friend lead me to a site with some good forensic software and I recovered about 95% of the windows partition files.

    Because of that Lubuntu experience, if something is ever, ever in question I do not proceed.

    Ha! After playing around trying to from my Nvidia driver back to the nouveau, the Kubuntu install got very bad. So I am installing a fresh 12.04 LTS.
