    fedora 11 is quite fast. i definately see boot time improvements and app launch improvements. you guys gotta give it a try. this is definately an upgrade from FC10 and blows the crap outta ubuntu 9.

    I think a clean install is recommended so you can take advantage of the ext4 file system. That is why I did a clean install from Fedora 10 instead of an upgrade.

    I'm having a lot of trouble with firefox 3.5 beta crashing has that happened to you? I'm thinking about rolling back to the current stable version if it will work with the new kernel, and I don't see why it wouldn't. I don't know why they would include a beta version of firefox in the release.

    Also can't get my ATI drivers to work for my 4850, apparently they won't work with the new kernel, which is a temporary bummer.

    so far firefox has not crashed on me :confused: my nvidia drivers work fine with rpmfusion installed so no issues there. but for some reason rythmbox wont play music if i have the crossfade option clicked. it must be some sort of audio problem. btw, i hate amarok2 and i want amarok1.4 back!!!!

    Apparently it has something to do with flash, firefox, and some corrupt library. So if you don't have adobe flash installed firefox won't crash.
