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?

Too bad
by Paulo Junqueira on Wed 12th Nov 2003 21:12 UTC

I installed it and saw the following problems (I day of use):

- No java support. I installed java and it didn't work with any browser
- Flash. I instlled it using my user in the Mozilla and Nestape place. Didn't work. Install as root didn't work too.
- Couldn't find MPlayer.
- After the installation I don't have an option to reconfigure my video card to support 1024x768.
- My other partitions wasn't recognized.

It seems the this version is worse then 8.0. Too bad.

Some of you can say: It's not their fault!!

Think like a HOME USER!!! All of this stuffs must work without to install anything.

Linux only will be ready for the desktop when this kind of problem is fixed.

I'm thinking about to try Lindows or Xandros...
