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?

i am using it as i type this, it is not bad, i had a couple of minor peeves but nothing i could not resolve..

First peeve, the option to check thru individual packages was gone from the install, but the grouped package selection seemed a little more improved...

Second peeve, the option to choose LILO and not Grub was gone, i easily fixed this by getting a copy of LILO from Rawhide and making a lilo.conf file from scratch for /etc...

Third peeve, no xmms-mp3 plugin for xmms-1.2.8, not found anywhere on the net as of this post, the one for xmms-1.2.7 wont work in xmms-1.2.8. i gor around this by installing mplayer which can play more multimedia file formats anyway so no real loss...

other than those three peeves i have no problems...

xfce4 that was built for Redhat-9 runs just fine in Fedora Core-1 i did not install or use Gnome or KDE so i can not say anything good or bad about them...
