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...

not sure on audacity, never used it, never installed it that i can recall.


as for mplayer (as well as mp3 support for xmms and other media players) redhat doesnt ship with them because the actual legality of it is cloudy. anything for which the legality of it is the least bit cloudy, redhat errs on the side of caution.

i would just use an apt repository with the software you want. rpm.livna.org has the packages that used to be associated with fedora.us before redhat and fedora joined forces (and redhat made them get rid of any packages with a cloudy legality). also there is freshrpms.net (but i have heard the livna rpms are of a higher quality. i cannot really comment as i have not had any issues with either)
