Fedora Core Fedora Core 1 has been out now for a few days now and many faithful Linux fans have already installed it. Red Hat's Linux is still one of my favorite distributions because of one main reason: compatibility with Linux software. Red Hat is a market leader and following the market leader assures the least trouble for most users. But is this the case with Fedora Core?

filesystem & rpm

they also have forgotten to skip redhat limitation on fs in install: always limited to ext2/3, LVM whereas stock 2.4 kernel also support reiserfs and JFS

rpm also seems broken as
rpm --rebuild, rpm -ba/-ta don't work, need to use rpmbuild ...

i also have trouble with vnc4beta, freeze, bad support of different window manager ...

hope they will change in next release ... if they keep redhat way, have to wait release 2 or 3
