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...

Stuff Missing

Anybody got any reason why Fedora doesn't have MPlayer or Audacity in the distribution discs??? I really like these programs over some of the choices in Core 2. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe these programs are GPL'd so with the room on the fourth disc, why not add them. I know you can get these via apt and yum and the main sites, but I haven't found a repository yet that has them updated for core 2 and previous versions give dependancy hell (via "rpm -ihv *.rpm" ... or via "up2date").
