Wow - that's a big improvement here. Thank you, Scott. I was running "ifup pci7p1" after every boot. Now I don't have to log in as root at all, I can just startx (until I figure out how to install qingy, that is).

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

@both of you (Rahul and Sonoran), I *think* that you will find:

If you install from DVD and choose minmal, you will find that /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-pciSomething will have onboot no and nm_controlled yes. If you install with net.iso, it has onboot yes, but still nm_controlled, so doesn't work. I'm pretty sure it's this way in RHEL6 and its offshoots as well. It's been this way awhile, it's become almost automatic for me to fix it.

I agree it's a bug, but it's one that doesn't bother me enough to file bugzilla on it. I don't have that much time these days, so I save it for the ones that are important to me.

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

Hi Rahul~
That groupinfo list is certainly different than what I got using groupinstall. My guess is the minimal netinst.iso install caused this. Notice I also got matchbox-windowmanager in addition to openbox, but not twm.

If I succeed in messing up my F15 Beta RC2 - which is likely - I will try the same install again and save the yum output of the groupinstall.

But thank you for looking into it.

That sounds right. My minimal install logs were full of Network Manager and Modem Manager error messages.

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

Adam explained on the mailing list that my selinux bug was due to a network install--it was grabbing from mirrors that probably hadn't been synced. Doing an update today fixed that one (the selinux dbus thingie).

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

Sorry, I should have been more specific--that was Adam's advice and what I did. @sonoran, that does seem to fix the selinux issue. (The selinux-targeted should be version-13---if it's <version>-12 it will have the problem.

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

Installed Fedora 15 RC2 with netinstall. NM kept screwing up both wired and wireless network with full update. I am not sure if dhcp is the culprit on x86_64 because that bug does not happen with Gnome 3 Lived based on i686 Fedora 15 Beta.

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

I suspect the x86_64 version does indeed have some individual issues. it has vapor-locked on my AMD Phenom quad-core badly and often enough in all iterations tried that I have not attempted to install it on the desktop machine. The i686 on the laptop, however, is running reasonably well.

Re: Fedora 15 Beta RC2 Available Now!

In my case, I've been working with the x86_64 on VirtualBox without too many issues, save for the two I mentioned, and that selinux one is either completely fixed or will be once all mirrors sync.

The network issue with minimal install is, as I said, a minor one for me, and has been that way for awhile.

You Gnome folks have far more of an adjustment to make. What I find interesting, as an objective (i.e., non Gnome using) observer is how those who are new to it seem to like it.

Indeed. And entirely understandable. To those who have never tasted Chicken Cordon Bleu served with iced Constant Comment, deep fried Critter McNuggets and a diet Coke seem like a pretty good meal.
