Thought I'd let the curious know how I got on with FC2T3. I like it alot
being a Gnome fan. Install was as stable as any of the previous
redhat/fedora release cd's. As in it just worked and did what it should
Getting up and running is pretty easy. SELinux, isn't fully disabled by
default, as claimed by the release. You need a kernel update from
Rawhide if you want that. What you can do is pass selinux=0 to the
kernel via the command line.
Getting multimedia functionality was a breeze as the freshrpms
repository works fine with this release. I basically added this to the
and also added this to the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file so that I
could get Freshrpm updates from the up2date utility.
yum freshrpms http://ayo.ie.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/1/i386/freshrpms
Once you've xine and mplayer et al installed, get the
w32codec-0.52-1.i386.rpm from http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/
Nice and fast and stable so far. Lets hope I don't have to eat my words.
