Anybody who wants to know what packages are in test 3, the list is up on Distrowatch (http://www.distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=fedora). I would assume it's fairly accurate.

I just want to remind people once more that this is still a test release.
Test releases are releases prior to the full core releases. Test releases are not like debian unstable, test releases are like the old redhat linux -beta releases. The only purpose of test releases is to get bugs out. If you use a test release and do not report and investigate issues, you are wasting yours and our time.
But if you think you can help the developers (and the rest of us) finding bugs and solving them, install the test release. Especially reports from people with weird hardware are wanted.
If you rely on third party packages, support or a system that works, use stable core releases.
And by the way, torrent up: http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/

it's out http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/

i am behind big firewall, so i was wondering, if the fc2t3 files on duke.dulug.edu ftp (dated apr-22) are the same, which you download using torrent (i mean - is it the real fc2t3 or should i wait, until they have newer timestamps)

I have downloaded disk 1 and it seems to check out with disk 1 from bit torrent.
27th April 2004, 09:49 PM
I've found a site selling them in the UK. :D
So I might buy them when they come online later this week.
27th April 2004, 10:56 PM
It looks like they have fixed the disk 1 problem:) Though I am still downloading the rest of the ISOs I tried disk 1 and IT DID BOOT!
