I burn a f16 live cd and when I installed it, wtf, no 3d with nouveau on nvidia 9800gt?

live-cd even won't work with 3d, bah.

Come on fedora... it's disappointing.

So does alpha means no testing whatsoever on the most popular GPUs (nvidia, ati, intel) before releasing?

At least before releasing the alpha, shouldn't the devs try booting the live-cd /live-usb with some well-known hardwares and drivers?

Is this what being a user means? Filing bugs even for the obvious absolute untested releases? And strangely, this 3d crash in nouveau/nvidia bug is not mentioned in Known issues. Which should not have been there if they tested just by booting with the shiny new release.
