Fedora Core So, there it is, the highly anticipated second release of Fedora Core. Again, I wanted to wait for a few days for things to calm down,and again, I couldn't resist updating my production system within two days after the release. Well, I'm just a Linux junkie, i guess...

hi folks!

i am quite thrilled that my first review got on osnews AND that most of the posters also liked it. thank you again, this means a lot to me :-)

some clarifications:

i have solved some of the issues i had:

gaim tray icon works, i just didn't know that it is part of gnome notification panel" that i usually turn off instantly after install because i use yum and not up2date. so that works without a hitch

the "boot bug" is not really a bug in kernel2.6, but in windows xp. there's a quite easy fix here: http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2004-May/msg02143.h...

the picture-vire bug only happens on the fat-partition. everything ok on ext3. i guess i really have to kill the windows partition on my laptop soon :-)

adding mp3-capabilities to rhyhtmbox is now accomplished by yum'ing "gstreamer-plugins-extra-audio" (last week, it was still gstreamer-plugins-mp3)

regards,
christian
