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?

IMHO FC1 == better RH9.

I've already all my personal dual workstations to FC1, and when I'll finish 24x7xnnn testing it, I'll start moving all my workstations and servers (that don't run Slackware...)

Now.
I've got nVidia drivers working (export CC=gcc32), flash working (rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++* from the *FC1 CD*), java working (Same old JSDK I'm always using), and MP3 working (RH9 rpm), (with Athlon SMP optimized Kernel/Xine/MPlayer/Mozilla 1.5 compiled from source.)
I personally love it and I found all the problems to be minute and easily solved... but that's me.
