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.

Real good Fedora Team!. I can see why your distributions are just plain Betaware!. Got this reply to a post from the Ubuntu forums about Fedora 11. Real Good!!. What are we suppose to just use onboard sound?!.

"
If you have a Soundblaster Live! or Audigy soundcard (that uses the emu10k1 drivers) you will have a horrible experience with F11. You will have kernel failures. I, and several others, filed at bug report at bugzilla and no one even triaged it. All I hear, weeks after the bug reports, are crickets chirping."

That's from a guy who has a bee in his bonnet and is, frankly, inaccurate. The bug has been assigned to the kernel team, whose responsibility it is.

Also, it only affects S/PDIF output, *not* analog output (which is what the vast majority of people use).

for more details - the bug report is:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=502698

an intersecting bug report is:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=496320

(it defaults to digital output rather than analog, which is wrong - so you have to manually switch it to analog if that's what you have. that bug should be fixed quite quickly.)
