F24 vs K24

Both releases are good to go for me. The only real difference between the two is speed of opening a program K24 seems to be much faster even though I have F24 installed on the hard drive and K24 on a usb thumb drive. Video is much better than on F23 and K23 for sure.

The only down side at the moment is on both F&K24 is,neither one can open an encrypted hard drive. This is really the only bug I found so far. Everything else is great. Thanks for the all the hard work.


? Could some one point me in the right direction so I can file a bug report so they can help me track the trouble . Thanks

edit: forgot about kmahjongg giving me trouble at one point maybe I'll try to install it on K24 to compare. Games don't count as a problem for me

And what is K24? Fedora 24 with KDE as the desktop?

Re: F24 vs K24

https://kororaproject.org/ It is a distro based on Fedora. The big difference is that it comes with all things needed for video and audio, plus some tweaks and a program called pharlap which installs proprietary drivers(like the nvidia driver). It's like what Mint does with Ubuntu. In other words it adds things Fedora can't for legal reasons. Thanks marko for pointing that out.

Not necessarily surprising. If, for example, you are using a new and fast USB drive and if F24 is installed on a traditional HDD, then I wouldn't be surprised that F24 is slower. Anyways, since Korora is using the Fedora repositories it is using the same code base. Of course, what could make a difference is which services are running on F24 compared to Korora.

Re: F24 vs K24

Really I'm surprised at the speed because usually what ever distro I put on this old usb stick is always slower on my cpu. Haven't gotten to the processes running yet but I will I like to compare. Then I'll down load chapeau linux and give that a try too when it comes out. Upgrades are always faster on the rotating rust than on the usb stick.

Re: F24 vs K24

I have K24 and http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russi...es/RFRemix/24/ installed. I intend to merge them. I do like the extras provided by each. For example, I like K24's change of backgrounds every so often. I like the RFR version for some of the provided tools.

Re: F24 vs K24

I like the change of wallpaper too. I use shotwell to make my own from time to time. I make them with my own pics family and friends, pets. Some times I'll do a sailboat or a flight theme with what I find online. I never used RFRemix. I'm always a little leery of some of the unofficial OS offerings but I guess I could load it on a usb to give it a try. Thanks for the heads up.

RFRemix carries the Fedora Logo. I would not worry about it.
Linux guys around the world do not like governments meddling with open-source software.
In any event if you ever try it, use the network version. The workspace version is in Russian, and I spent some time figuring out how to convert the keyboard and displays to English.

updates are typically one day or two days later than if you were accessing the updates from an American Mirror.

simply add the RFR repositories to Korora and you have the extra provided tools available. Same applies to standard Fedora installs and I make use of the RFR packages myself. I'm posting from Chromium installed from there now.
