    Been there.

    The solution: insert ubuntu(or debian) cd and go "next, next, next" :)

    Yes! Use Debian or Ubuntu... and never see any Fedora crap. Here is what I did...

  3. I've never had any problems with Fedora, and I've used it on three machines since FC14. Just because you have one problem, it does not mean the entire distro is garbage. I've have plenty of problems with Ubuntu, such as kernel panics on my old Dell latitude c640. Fedora, Ubuntu, and Debian are all great OS's

  4. I'm not sure Fedora's version I was using when I did this blog post, but looking at the date it was probably Fedora Core 6, long before FC14. Anyway, I know that this problem doesn't mean "the entire distro is garbage", and even if I quite dislike Fedora in comparison to Debian or other Debian-based distro's, I agree that any GNU/Linux distro is a "great OS" :-)
