Fedora Core DistroWatch reviews Fedora 7, and concludes: "While Fedora doesn't seem to have made great advances in the ease of configuring those finer things in life (like non-GPL drivers and non-free codecs), it's not overly complicated if you're willing to get your hands a little dirty. Once you start needing to customise the machine outside of standard Fedora boundaries though, things can become a little less reliable."

you probably have a corrupted installation. Did you check your SHA sum of the ISO image that you burned your CD/DVD from? Did it pass the Media Test during installation? If the answer to both of those questions is yes (which I doubt) then file a bugzilla report against gtk component at https://bugzilla.redhat.com

Yes.
I didn't checked the checksum though.
My system was upgraded in this way: FC5->FC6->F7
Probably the problem in some old files.

I believe when the media check was originaly introduced they had lots of problems with false posatives, I.E. the media would be reported as invalid, but it was fine. However I think that has now been resolved.

You may be lucky in that the secion of the media that is busted contains data that you have not tried to install, or you have but are not using it now.

I hardly think recomending users (I would take your comment as a recomendation as opposed to a factual statement) to skip this step is wise.
