I've been anxious to tryout both Kernel 2.6 and Gnome 2.6, so I donwloaded and installed (fresh install) FC2T2 on my HP Pavilion ze4315 laptop. FC1 plays very nicely with this laptop, so I had high hopes.
After the install, I had no sound, my touchpad lost the tap-click and scroll, and it didn't recognize my wireless usb adapter (Linksys wusb11). Not a good start.
The wireless was my first priority, so I got the latest drivers from at76c503a.berlios.de compiled and installed with no problem. I rebooted and the boot messages started scrolling by so fast I couldn't read them. I assume they were errors related to the drivers module, but don't really know.
So I reinstalled FC1 at that point. Yea, I could have booted from the DVD again and removed the offending drivers, but I was highly annoyed. A major release should make things better, not break things already working. I also realize that this is a beta release, but again, things that worked fine before were now broken.
Should I be hopeful that the final release will be any better?
