Has anyone installed it yet? I just loaded it and I am very impressed with this release. The new gnome is very fast and good looking. And now you can choose between 3 desktop environments with one click.
The only fault is that the fedora crew is bypassing firefox 2.0 and working on integrating 3.0 insted. O-well fire fox 1.5 is still pretty good and stable.
Are there any other quirks that anyone has found with core 6?
I haven't used it yet . ...waiting for a few reviews to come in first
Thanks for your input.
Any other major changes??
well i have downloaded the CD version of the product... didnt like it... Downloading the DVD version... Set up would be easy there in DVD version...
I downloaded the Fedora Core 6 DVD and besides a bug only found in the Intel version of Fedora in the installer where it installed the i586 version of the kernel is installed instead of the i686 (but easily fixable with like 3 lines of commands in a terminal) so far so good. Fedora could use some work with things like themes though visually its not that bad but I wish there were more choices available. I also kind of wish they went back to the up2date update manager although pup is good in the sense that it is allot less cluttered and simpler to use (but for instance it lacks package descriptions of updates). I don't like the over-reliance on yum when it comes to software installations because I had a problem getting my wireless card to work in the beginning so I had to manually plug into an Ethernet connection to add a package like ndiswrapper which is available on the DVD (of course you can just navigate to the cd and install the program with the RPM command but I suppose if you wanted that convenience you could have downloaded SUSE and used the Yast2 package manager, this also limits people without broadband access from using the package manager effectively. Minus those small annoyances Fedora is really coming along with this Release, it has almost all of the programs you could possibly need.
I'm a hard core fedora fan, and FC6 rocks. I installed it a few weeks back, but removed after a few days as I don't have an internet connection now. I'm using Sabayon GNU/Linux now, and is planning to go back to FC6 as soon as I get an internet connection.
Can Fedora be run from a CD (without installation to hard drive)?
i m using Fedora Core 6 and find it better than Core 5. It detected my printer as i connected it whereas FC5 was a bit of struggle. The DVD version is way better and faster. I finished the installation in 2 hours on my underpowered machine. i have used it quite a lot. they have shipped FF 188.8.131.52. even the update upgraded it to 2. could not believe it. i think there is a flaw. there is also a bug in something related to the kernel. i think it is the older kernel that they have shipped. it's better to upgrade as soon as the installation is complete. the upgrade is also 457 MB (at least till now...). It's much faster to load. even KDE is faster. perhaps it is something to do with the new version of KDE. havent installed GNOME so dont know about it...
I'm not a fan of these "spoonfeed" distros. Besides, I've heard Fedora 6 is terribly buggy.
I'm using fedora core 6, and to me it didn't make much of a difference from when i was using fc5. My wireless card was still not supported, and had tons of trouble with hardware support. I really like it though, it's stable for what I use it for--developing, server testing, and such.
if you don't have internet connection, the best try is install fedora core 6 using DVD, and setting pirut to using DVD
