Ok... I have come to the conclusion that upgrading
from FC1 to FC2 is a disaster. DO NOT DO IT UNLESS
YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR TIME or if you want to spend
time finding and repairing the mess!
GNOME fails MISERABLY! The sounds system is MISERABLY
installed and DOES NOT WORK. It is a FREAKING MESS!!!
Starting login process in GNOME results:
1) xprop -root | grep XKB
gconfigtool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/perhiperals/keyboard/xkb
2) "An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for
gnome_segv. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.
(the screen froze up and cannot do a damn thing except reboot)
3) Unable to access /dev/dsp (warning message)
NO FREAKING SOUND! NOTE: ALSA is NOT installed in the usual places as taken
from the ALSA Organization. It is a REDHAT configuration. DUH!!
4) Updates from FC2 says there is a PHP ready for upgrade but the freaking
dependency thing says that installing it WILL BREAK SEVERAL (MANY MANY)
DEPENDENCIES thoughout the entire system!!! What is the point of upgrading
FC1 was MUCH more stable and working!!! It has it problems but the DAMN
THING WORKS BETTER THAN FC2!!!
THIS IS NOT A STABLE RELEASE. TESTING WAS NOT THROUGH!!! NOT READY FOR
PRIME TIME!!! AAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!
-\|/-\|/- OK.... Ok.... ok.... taking a breather.... that was for
upgrades. NEVER NEVER AGAIN.
ROUND 2: FRESH VIRGIN INSTALL. REINSTALL MY PERSONAL STUFF ALL OVER AGAIN.
Lets see how this goes. The saga continues.
