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?

Compile problems
by Andrew G on Wed 12th Nov 2003 21:15 UTC

Compiling software for Gnome is generally a nightmare.

Why is it that so many apps fail to compile for seemingly no reason. Every dependancy met, blah, blah, blah. For instance Mono will not compile on Fedora from CVS or tarball.

Is this just Fedora? Has anyone managed to achieve this monumental feat?
