Re: FC1 stable, FC2 ... you wish.

You've probably found a kernel bug which isn't something you can blame on the distro, just report it in detail and let people work on it. But since I'm running at least 40 FC2 machines now I can say it's not perfect but worth the upgrade. Just test your apps before hand.

Okay, so after a whole week of fighting FC2 to run, and having to reboot the machine every 4 to 5 hours because of a kernel panic, I downgraded to FC1 and low and behold...the server's running without a single hitch. So, something's screwed with FC2 which causes it to panic with either the pdflush or the swapper processes, whereas none of the previous RH versions, nor FC1 have that problem. It also trashed a 200 GB drive every time it panicked. None of the previous versions of RH did that.

And with everything else I have read on this list over the past two weeks or so, I'd say stay away from FC2. Maybe it's time I start looking at a different distribution...
