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?

It works great for me

It's stable and works for me everyday for email, web browsing, irc and playing audio cds I buy from the store.

Apt, yum and up2date are used to upgrade to the latest software with a minimum of fuss.

After downloading the images, mounting them and puting them on an old celron 400 running Red Hat 9, I booted from a floppy and did a graphical network install on a p4 2.4 shuttle xpc box. Everything I've tried so far works great.

For Samba 3,I made manual entries for the other machines on my network in the /etc/hosts file. After that, everything worked great. The hosts file has been around for a *long* time and works well for a small number of machines.
