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 have installed all the development packages in the install process. Maybe I missed something. Anyway the error message I recieved during compilation seemed to indicate an error in the source. I thought it must be something to do with GCC which I think is 3.3 in Fedora and stricter than previous versions.

Anyway I had other failures in other packages (mono-debugger) . It claimed to be missing binutils-dev (debian package) during configure. binutils is of course installed. I am going to try with SuSE 8.2 and see how that goes.
