Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

The https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F11_bugs
page is great addition AdamW has brought to Fedora.

Personally I have been burned with Intel/Xorg/Kernel updates. The preview worked better on my EeePC than the current version.

That isn't a new page, Common Problems has been around for many releases.

AdamW was a great pickup, but he didn't bring the page.

indeed, the page was around for previous releases, and the F11 page follows that format in some ways. but I am sorta driving it for F11 and made it, er, bigger. ;) It's kind of a hybrid of the previous Fedora Common Bugs pages and the Errata page layout I came up with for Mandriva, now. It'll have a 'Resolved Issues' section like the Mandriva pages do, once updates start fixing some of those bugs.

Could you tell us which model EeePC you have again? What exact issues are you encountering? I was actuually looking into replacing my Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04.2 install with Fedora after seeing the disappointment that was Jaunty (and Intrepid for that matter!) but your comments are giving me pause on whether that would be an improvement or not. Also, what do you think of the previous release, Fedora 10? Is it worth moving to from Hardy or am I better off staying put?

I have an Asus 1000HE. Here's my results:

Fedora 10, 11 - Good battery life (7 hours, close to the 8 hours under XP), but Ath9k driver keeps dying after suspend - sometimes rmmod/modprobe would help, other times nothing short of a reboot would work.

Eeebuntu 3.0 - Wireless is flawless, immediately reconnects after suspend and resume. Poor battery life (5-6 hours).

I went with the shorter battery life and better wireless support.
