my own experience so far with FC9
upgrading an existing FC8 system running on a HPG6000 (AMD64).
needed to use the 386 version instead of 64 because the wireless in the
G6000 only works on 386 CPUs so far (using a patched version of madwifi)
Video card is NVidia GeForce 7000M. doesn't work with the
Fedora-supplied driver so I needed to use the 173.08 (beta) driver from
NVidia. that driver does not yet do GLX. also, the ABI is not yet set
properly so I need to startx like this:
startx -- -ignoreABI
I would /prefer/ to use KDE, but it won't work because the
taskbar/kicker/whatchamacallit requires GLX and that's not working, so
I'm using Gnome.
Firefox3 keeps crashing, so I'm using Firefox2. besides, i hate the look
of the new bookmarks thing - it's /cluttered/
using a custom kernel because of the wifi and nvidia thing. Livna
provides a madwifi RPM, but I'm not sure that there's an RPM solution
for the video card.
