Calm down Doug. I have to agree with the others though - you say how 
hard it would be to manage two lists with volume....look at it from our 
side of that argument. This list gets a ridiculous amount of volume as 
is, and now you want us to answer questions which by definition of this 
list do not belong here on top of that?

How right does that sound to you?

If you want stable - install FC1 and use this list.
You want to play tester - install FC2Tx and use the test list.
You want to do both - fine use both lists, but do not cross post.

Seriously - this list is big enough as is without other lists posting in 
here as well.

I'm not flaming you - honestly I understand your point of view, but 
please drop the 'poor me' attitude, I've seen it all before, it gets no 
sympathy from the seasoned posters, and there is no reason for it if 
anyone just sticks to the rules that are in place.

Again, honestly not a personal attack - just fact. The question you had 
regarding Alsa on FC2T2 may in fact be a bug in FC2T2 or an 
incompatibility between the two. FC2T2 is BETA or TEST software for a 
reason - not everything is going to work. People download it to TEST it, 
then give their feedback to the fedora developers.
