There's an updates.img recommended for use with TC2 to fix some significant problems, now, as well:

Just one question:
What is the version of openGL for this alpha?

er, that's a fairly ambiguous question. The version of Mesa? The version of the OpenGL spec implemented in some specific driver? Which driver?

I understood that my question is ambiguous...
My driver is Nvidia 195.36.03, and I saw that the OpenGL version is 3.2.0.
It is a question posted on Fedora-fr.org, by an other user.
I will explain him that OpenGL version depend of driver.
Thank for your reply.

Ya OpenGL depends on driver and implimenting of specific routines as well. Since Nvidia went to OpenGL 3.0 in their driver last year they've added the dozens of necessary operations to bring it to 3.2 though I'm not sure about what defines the version standards there are several operations added to lots of cards on various driver releases. 8 and up series cards have picked up some 6 or so new OpenGL calls just from 195 to 196. I was shocked when I checked it under Windows and found they had gone from 160ish operations to 182 plus just from 185 release to 196. There's still a ton of operations to be implimented to get it to I guess 4.0.

So open yes. Uniform. Not from what I can tell. Not an expert on this stuff but that's what I've stumbled across.

I'm trying to install F13-Alpha netinst as guest in virtualbox but when I get to the section during installation, it ask for different repositories. The default one listed seems not to work.

Which one would I add in place of the default one? If it has been mention already, I can't seem to find it.

Thnx.

you're hitting this bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=562209 I think. No fix is available for it yet, but we're working on it. There is a workaround documented in the bug, I believe just booting with 'updates=' (yes, just the equals sign, no value) is the workaround.

I had troubles installing Fedora13 also.

I was able to set-up partitions but when it was time for Fedora to write them I would get errors or, Fedora would just not write them at all.

As always, best to post a bugzilla with full details so they can fix it for the final release

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/

or

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Fe...l_Test_Results

or rather
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_...ha_RC4_Install
