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

Hi Ashley,

I apologize if I hve not read the original thread, but did
you upgrade or fresh install FC2?  I am thinking of the 'divide
and conquer' process.  If you did an upgrade, then perhaps the
problem is caused by the "left over" files?  If you have the time
or opportunity, try a FRESH install of FC2 and see if the problem
goes away.  If you did a 'fresh' install, then never mind.

I had some problems with the UPGRADES where somethings "left behind"
caused all sorts of strange behaviors but I was focusing on the
GNOME/KDE system components.  I have yet to find out the other
potential upgrade problems as I have not had the time to investigate
it but will do so soon.

Best regards,
