Fedora Core DistroWatch has reviewed Fedora 8. They conclude: "Overall, I truly believe that Fedora 8 is by far the best Fedora release to date (and I've tried every one of them). From the look and feel of the system, to the out-of-the-box configuration during installation, I couldn't be happier with a cutting edge release. As I mentioned before, the biggest aspects of a successful distribution for me are suspend/hibernate, correct screen resolution and the the ability to change the screen resolution in a GUI if it didn't configure it correctly the first time, system stability, and overall look and feel of a distribution. For me, Fedora 8 has excelled in all categories when I evaluate and review a system and I hope that Fedora continues to release versions that are put together as good as Fedora 8 has been."

Yeah, but that one only works in permissive mode, not enforced mode. ;)

you sure about that? In Fedora 7 I'm running enforcing mode and it gives me suggestions for creating a new policy. Not sure yet how it works in F8 though. Haven't had a chance to use it much yet.

I'm not sure where he got the idea that setroubleshoot (that's the name of the system) only works in permissive mode. It works in permissive and enforcing on Fedora 8 and RHEL 5.

Yes, you're talking about the SETroubleshooter. It has a shiny little gui that pops up and will give you a synopsis of the problem and a command to run that fixes it. Kudos to redhat for writing it. It also goes well with polgengui for people new to SELinux

In case of my usb printers and scanners, the troubleshooter worked only in permissive mode. When I used the enforced mode, i got no feedback at all. The hardware simply did not receive any commands on my fedora 7 and fedora 8 systems.

Bad luck? ;)
