Fedora Core This article is kind of a follow-up to my first Fedora Core 2 review, published on OSNews in May. Most of the reviews are published shortly after the release of a distribution, and there's always someone who complains that one cannot really "review" a distribution after only a few days of actually working with it.

sound mixing

I don't see the point why xine should have (or have had) a problem with sound mixing. If mixing isn't in the system automatically after install, this is already a horrible bug. Even more so for a mainstream or "idiot" distribution like Fedora.
Setting up sound on my Gentoo box was just as much work as compiling ALSA drivers in the kernel, editing two config files, and setting the mixer levels. All applications worked immediately, including xine and OSS applications. And that was about 6 months ago, so if xine worked alright there, why shouldn't it for Fedora.
