    Fedora Core 4 Test 1: First Impressions

    FC4t1 is out today. I want to give it a test. I'll actually be installing on AMD64 this time, because I want to see the 'major improvements' GCC 4.0 brings to the k8 architecture (According to Gentooers, of course!)

    This thread will be edited as I proceed through the install process:


    Initial Install:
    I'll be doing a network install, since my caps recently got bumped to 550KB/s!!

    Anaconda still looks roughly the same -- a new icon here and there, but it's still the same beast.

    I see that the AMD64 version is installing both i386 and x86_64 packages for practically everything... Hopefully this means better compatibility for us AMD64 users.

    Currently waiting for install to finish...

    Urg, not worth the time.... Not enough time to go around randomly testing OSes.

    Gentoo allows me to play 23 hours of solitaire!!!! Beat that!


    I'm gonna test Gentoo 2005.0 AMD64, when it comes out.

    fc4 is a waste of time imho. fedora has always been too buggy and considerably slower than other distros. and this is annoying, although i am not a speed-freak.

    ...hmmm... why do i still have it on my lappy? i must be a masochist...

    I am really curious... I was about to use FC3, but after a week of struggle and final disaster with ndiswrapper I decided to give Ubuntu a shot.

    And you know what?

    I am really happy.

    I never got FC3 installed. I always crashed half way through the install. I like testing new distros but I don't feel like messing with fedora at all.
