Does anyone know if it is their intention to fix installer problems for releases that have them? In the past, there have been releases that have had real installer problems for certain configurations. Problems which would have been fixed had they been known about before the CD was mastered. The Fedora devs’ response to this was always… we’ll fix it in Fedora X+1… we don’t do respins.
Some people around here have tried to convince me that Fedora is production ready. If the respins fix this kind of thing, that is a very significant step in that direction.

Fedora dont do anaconda package updates post release yet but there is a discussion to decouple Anaconda from the updates process and Live CD’s are being featured with the ability to install to hard disk. This spin does fix the kernel arch issue through an update in yum which I believe was originally attributed to be a Anaconda issue. Some issues do get a updated image so you dont have to wait till the next release

Anyone knows if these live cd’s are usable with other keyboard maps?
I mean, i have a spanish keyboard and last time i tried the only choice i had was an us keyboard.
If there was, this live cd would be very useful for me.

I wonder if they’re going to add in the ability to use a dial-up modem, something they had in FC5 but eliminated from FC6.
More and more distros are doing this, including Ubuntu (which no longer has gnome-ppp by default). Seems like if you’re stuck on dial-up, you’re no longer welcome to use Linux.

Hmm I must have been delusional when I unchecked the whole Dial-Up Networking group on my last FC6 install.
– Does it install successfully yet?
– And for the virtual machines: why not an I686 compile?

Will probably have to wait for an update to VMware if FC6 doesnt run right now. I havent tried running FC6 in VMware myself. However, there were major changes to xorg in FC6 which means that it probably isnt going to work well.

I’m using VMWare Server under FC6 (both i386 and x86_64) since it was released.
This is the first re-spin that use Pungi :
Pungi will be used for Fedora (Desktop|Servver|KDE|…) 7.
Given how often fedora has updates, these respins are a godsend. Horray for the fedora unity project
