    Guys, the performance of the torrent is EXTREMELY poor.

    I can understand everything, yet I’d prefer a tad more professionalism in publishing the community remix of Fedora. There is a for those who do not get the torrent thingy, you know. Just a hint.

    Go get better,

      Torrent performance is usually slow during first two days of release until more seeders turn up, so please help out by seeding.

    bah, what is with all these remixes of popular distros that include multimedia support out of the box also including other “tweaked” crap like additional software and docks and the like? Wish somebody would just make a remix that was ONLY additional multimedia support, of both fedora and ubuntu.

    Okay now it’s nice of you guys to post a workaround for the
    MESSED UP updater. I tried it and NOTHING has changed…..
    So now what? Have you guys released a new verision of the
    remix, as I like to use it.I’m command line challanged so a new
    install disk without that problem would be cool. I’m a 64 yr.
    old linux fan (recently) who has no wish to return to Winblows
    and I’m low on patience too.

      Hi Stephen, thank you for your comment. I’m not sure I understand what problems you are having. Are you having some issues with previous version of this remix or issues with Fedora 12 in general? Updates should work because Chromium repo is available again.

    it just me or a what.
    Using KDE4 desktop. Small windows when hit top screen automagicly become max windows.

    Remix 12.2 KDE dont have this feature.

    Hi Valent, You’ve done a lot of work here and it does show. I’m wondering why some of these packages were included on a remix intended for netbooks.

    KDE, Gnome and Xfce? Maybe you could just pick one and let users install others if they want?

    Many of the Gnome D0 plugins ahaven’t been updated in over a year. That might be a reason not to include it.

    Inkscape, Scribus, GIMP
    and Blender are each used by specific communities. Few fedora users are in the habit of 3-D modelling, for instance, and for those who are it’s a short yum install blender away.

    Why each of Thunderbird and Evolution?

    And Aircrack-ng and Kismet aren’t ran by that many people. Perhaps their use should be limited to those who can install them anyway.:)

    Educational and astronomy software packages could probably be left out without inconveniencing too many people.
    Two cents from Kurt

    • valent says:

      Hi Kurt,
      there will be a two versions in next release, first one will be “standard” based on GNOME and not many other apps/tools will be added, to keep the iso under 1GB. Extra version will be KDE+GNOME and other DE for those who want to demo all Destop enviroments from one LiveDVD/USB.

      I would love to remove evolution but that is not possible 😦 Try yum remove evolution and you will see for your self.

      From your comments I see that new “Standard” version is the right one for you. Thanks for your comments.
