Fedora Core Fedora Core 5, 'Bordeaux', has been released to mirrors. The release notes [.html download] are posted, along with sets of screenshots of the installation procedure and the resulting desktop, by Linux-Noob, so boys and girls, rejoice. The main new features of Fedora Core 5 are the latest GNOME and KDE desktops (2.14 and 3.5 respectively), integration of early work on the Fedora Rendering Project, Mono installed by default, new pakage manager front-ends, better sleep/hibernate support, and much, much more. Update: Screencast and screenshots.

After some google investigation, I think i stumbled accross what the Fedora team plans to release in order to fix the kernel module problem introduced in a stock FC5 installation.

check out:

You will notice a new version of all the kernels. I am about to download and install on my FC5 system to see if it alleviates my problems with loading modules such as NVIDIA's. I also hope it fixes my Sound Blaster Audigy card problem. FC 5 doesnt seem to play well with it. Funny considering I've used it on a whole slew of other linux distros.
