I´m totally disapointed concerning the final release of FC5 as it is presented to the community.
I installed several times FC2/FC4 on different machines (as listed below) without major problems. Today, I made a fresh FC5 installation on a hp vectra vli6, pii 350mhz desktop and a hp ob4150b piii, 650mhz laptop. From today´s point of view, not really modern HW, so hard to imagine (and of course, not acceptable) that things that worked out in the past suddenly not longer do.
Chosing core install/customized install makes no difference at all, concerning the problems as stated below.
Default run level 3, selinux has been disabled (in ks-file "selinux --disabled")
0. SElinux is now enabled by default. Why? - I´m pretty sure most people do not use selinux at all.
1. Missing pcmcia support. Not longer recognizing xircom creditcard based nic cards at installation process (xirc2ps_cs). After installation (using another nic) the cards seem to work.
2. FC5 hangs on "starting message bus", both concerning laptop and desktop. Service must be disabled.
3. The complete installation process via http/nfs runs very slowly. (Checking dependencies in packages....)
4. On laptop (ATI driver) xorg-x11 driver not switching to 1024x786 resolution, still using 800x600.
5. On desktop (MGA driver) the screen crashes after udev is started (no possibility to interfere)
6. Cannot compile AVM FritzCard PCI ISDN driver (as it was done on FC2/FC4): Maybe this might not be a problem to FC5 only but may concern new kernels in general (closed source drivers). But a working capi driver is a MUST for my productive systems.
After having wasted a lot of time when struggling with these problems, there's one question to ask for: What has been done to this release????
Hard to believe that such a unstable version is presented to the community as the final version.
I already know that FC will always be a development platform for rh's commercial products, but now thinking that this was the last time I've worked with new FC versions.
Switching back to FC4.
For the future, I'll switch to CentOS.
