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?

Wiped off the RH9 install and did a clean install of FC1. Found all hardware, was easy to get mp3 playback, mplayer, xine etc.
One glitch: The RH9 install would let you change the type of video card and amount of video memory. RH9 always mistakenly detected my nvidia TNT card as having 4 MB, and I would simply change it to 16 MB. There was no option for this during the FC1 install, and therefore it limited me to 1024x768 (I always ran 1280x1024 under RH9). I had to manually edit the XF86Config file, which wasn't a big deal for me but for someone just starting out....
