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 agree, the liva.something yum repository has Mplayer, but when use 'yum install mplayer' it tells you it is missing a package for dependancy. Thats pretty funny. Why bother putting mplayer in the repository without all the packages needed for it?

Probably what has happened is that the RPM from Livna is expecting an RPM that hasn't yet migrated from Fedora Core 0.95 to Fedora Core 1.
