View Full Version : Fedora Core 3 Test 2 now available
20th September 2004, 05:04 PM
Lady and gentlement, Fedora development proudly announced that Fedora Core 3 Test 2 is available for testing. Here is the new features:
a minor change to the device model, switching from a static /dev to a dynamic /dev provided by udev
the GNOME 2.8 release candidate
X.org X11 6.8.0
Be in mind this is a test release so users should only install it for reporting bugs. You can download the ISO via fedora official site (http://fedora.redhat.com/), mirrors (http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html) or Bit Torrent (http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/).
Fedore Core 1 which is no longed updated on official website is now transfered to Fedora Legacy community (http://fedoralegacy.org).

Got them d/l if I have time tonight will put it on a test box. I'm already running rawhide so just the install will be different i guess.

as always, it rocks hard... I already had my system updated using yum, but just to test the installer for bugs I did a reinstall..
I must say while I wasn't overtly impressed with FC2 as a release, FC3 looks to be killer so far - test2 is good indicator and I like what I see.

For reasons unknown to me, I have to reinstall my nvidia drivers every single time I boot. On each boot they fail, I remove them, install them, they work, reboot, they fail. I have no idea why this is happening and its driving me nuts!!!!

the reason this is happening is an issue with udev that is still being sorted out if my memory serves me properly. Go to fedora.redhat.com and check out the mailing lists. there are several people there reporting this issue as well.

you can update fedora via yum? How? Does anyone know what ftp server I can use to do an ftp install of fc3t2?

Try adding a line to your rc.local file to load the nvidia driver for you automatically each time you boot. I don't think you need to remove and reinstall it each time. It is just that the module isn't getting loaded. This forces it to load using a modprobe command . . . .
The file is located at /etc/rc.local and mine looks like this, with the nvidia line included:
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.
I also needed to add the sound entry to have a /dev/dsp in place for alsa to use. Both of these seem to have something to do with the latest changes to udev, as the post above noted. Hope this helps you out!

Edit your yum.conf by uncommenting the development repository.

Thanks alot, I thought I did that though, I did a yum update and nothing came up should I do something like yum update fedora? When I can boot back into Fedora, I'll check my conf file. (I'm downloading the fc3t2 dvd in windows right now..hope I can get it done by noon tomorrow.)
