Hi guys and girls, if there are some here,
First little history here:
First tried Suse 7 years ago, or something like that. Not used actually, was collecting dust on second partition. Then after view years switched Ubuntu 5 or 6 or something. Used it for view years on my desctop. Linux only. No dual boot nothing. Then bought a mac mini. Played with OSX for view years. While following lessons of Fedora and CentOS. Then Win7 came out. Used it for view years. To be kind of up to date.
a view month ago i installed Russian Fedora Remix on a mac. I a sence of completely switching back to linux. I dont want to use OSX for example simply because you get used to what u use. So i tough ill run lets say Fedora on my desktop at home and workstation at work. And surely CentOS on server('s). For glpi for example, or wahtever else. Fog maybe.
Ive installed Russian Fedora Remix and then installed EasyLife Project on it. Everything runned fine for view month. Then view weeks ago it stated to refuse to update because of package conflict. On Russian Fedora Remix forum ive got an advise to remove the conflicting package. (Alsa). When i removed it, it removed also one gig dependencies. Now gnome and kde do not log in. Only openbox and enlightenment work. Browsers do not work. And i doubd something else works at all.
I wondered what are the proc and cons of the RPMFusion enabled by EasiLife project and Russian Fedora Remix repos. Because RFR repos already contain non free codecs and so on. My first tough was that maybe it would be more interesting to use Russian repos because maybe they would be littlebit later in updates. So if an update brakes something. It can be fixed before it was added there. Im Russian by the way, thats why im interested in this version. Althou what is more of concern to me is that RFR contains all the codecs out of the box. For me on the PC its RFR or SuperOS that are interesting. The rest are details. But then, my second though was that maybe RFR might also be kind of purer then EasyLife project. I mean i remember the days when people on Ubuntu forums were against Automatix. Offcourse i expected EasiLife project to be more cosher maybe. Maybe because its fedora finaly not ubuntu. I always tought that fedora forums are kind of more professional but, what is not so good, less friendly compared to ubuntu. Thats was my impression. And also ive been already suggested on the fedora irc to not use easylife project. I actually installed it on RFR mainly because of a habit of installing it on fedora. And because of a theme. But that is not a concern anymore. Cuz ill costumize it anyway.
So what are the proc and cons of EasyLife Project vs Russian Fedora Remix?
Share your toughs on it. Any suggestions are appreciated.
THanks in advance,
