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?

Resources for Fedora Core

I have been using Fedora Core since it first release to the public, and all I can say is it really rocks. I try all of the major distributions when they first come out, and of all I have tried, Fedora Core 1 is the best. BTW, I have Mandrake 9.2 on 3 cd's if anyone wants it. ;)

Installation was very simple, even with a dual boot setup. There are minor problemes, as there are with any OS, You just need to do a little research and fix up the quirks.

The first thing to do is get yum working correctly and do a yum update. The yum repositories were changed so you will need to update your yum.conf file. I have a working yum.conf file on my site at:

Although I do not agree with everything in theis review, I do agree that Fedora Core 1 has some things that could have been more polished, but nothing that cannot be worked around. Overall, it is a great distro.
