Fedora 10 - Initial Thoughts

The Fedora team have the graphic design and usability sense of a stuffed olive.

Also, the network configuration GUI thing sets your netmask to be the same as your default gateway.  THIS DOES NOT WORK.

Nor does it set up your default gateway properly.

Also, sar and iostat still aren't installed by default.  Not only are they not installed by default, they aren't installed when you select every base package, system tool, and administration option available.

It's just a yum install sysstat away, but why does that have to be the first thing I do on every new Linux box?

Anyway, currently pulling 50+MB/sec across the network (would be more, but it's encrypted, because I'm too lazy to set up a proper rsyncd.conf) so most of Yurie will be on Haruhi by morning.

2 Thanks Pete.  I used to do that in the old days; I'll see how it works now.

I can get ~30MB/sec on one stream using the default encryption, and ~50MB/sec with two streams.

3 Huh.  Actually runs slightly slower.

4 Where do I sign up to complain about Fedora / Redhat up2date ?

Its been broken for how long ? Oh yeah. Ever since it was introduced.

Why can't they just let us do the updates ourselves ? Anybody using linux is not the average Windows user.
