Fedora Core 6

Posted by Treg in General

Lately, I heard some very good comments on the latest new Fedora (Core 6) project, so I decided to test this Linux distribution.

The installation started nice, as I expected from this distro. After the first boot configuration I got a 800×600 desktop on a widescreen. After adapting the xorg.conf configuration, the X server was performing well (without DRI). The next thing to test, was the wifi connection. Unfortunately, I had to install and load the ipw3945 drivers manually. After a while this issue was fixed and I could move on to the next… bummer. Yes, the kernel didn’t support cpu frequency scaling. All what i got, was a kernel error. Concolusion: the distro isn’t workable for me at this moment. I expect a lot of bugfixes and support on the issues (that I find on the forum).
