    Taht is a great adition to the normal versions and makes fedora for most users much more attractive. This Release should be official:)
    I tested it and it works really good.
    So it’s a food competion to Ubuntu and Mandriva nd OpenSuse. Hope this Project will grow.
    So good luck for the future.

    Good luck on your efforts although the name is a violation of the Fedora trademark guidelines. There should be no words between “Fedora and “Remix”. It should be called Foo Fedora Remix or Fedora Remix Foo. You would do well to rename this.

  3. mether says:

    Also called it “Based on Fedora” is explicitly forbidden by the same guidelines

    Great stuff!

    You should work together with Fedora Omega (http://omega.dgplug.org/). Seems that the aims are the same.

    Are there also a custom theme installed. Gnome for example has some nice themes (http://art.gnome.org/). I would be nice to include a lot of themes, backgrounds and startup splash screens by default, so that users easily can change them with a few clicks

    I think this is what Fedora has been needing….I’m downloading now. Can’t wait to install it.

    Hey, I’m on my campus wifi and we can’t d/l from torrent. also the direct download is so slow i’ll never be able to keep my laptop running for so long without getting a corrupeted file. one more thing i tried is using getright to d/l but didn’t successed.
    Any ideas or maybe a different link to direct d/l

  9. Sunnz says:

    Does it use MintInstall or the Fedora package manager?

  10. Carlos Kassab says:

    Hi, This project is great but one thing i would like as a Linux user is the life cycle of the version to be similar to the lts Ubuntu.

    Hi, I installed this version yesterday. It really looks and works perfectly. But I have one problem with my mobile internet on pcmcia card – Huawei E630. It’s very important for me because it’s my only source of net and updates. System can’t make correctly devices /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1. It really do them but after a while they are unreachable and disappear from list of devices.. and it’s over and over again..
    It’s strange for me because I’ve no problem with it on original F12. Any ideas?

    • valent says:

      I’m really sorry to hear that. We haven’t done anything special regarding regarding pcmcia devices. My guess is this should work or fail exactly the same on Fedora Community Remix as on regular Fedora 12. We have all updates applied and it is possible that one of the updates broke support for you card.

      Which module (driver) does Huawei E630 uses? Have you checked that the module is loaded?

    what is diffrent with dagermouse ‘greenback’ ? Any special tool like “ojuba control center” ?

    I’ve been looking for an md5sum for 12.1 everywhere, but to no avail. Am I missing it somehow?
