First question is - using FC5t2, is it generally recommended not to do updates? I use ubuntu heavily and it's updates seem to keep a stable system whereas FC5 does not. But I'm not here to say that it's better or worse, just different. When I did full upgrades via yum (from the dev repo I think it is thats enabled) everything crashes except X. And I find it silly to write 101 bug reports. But I thought perhaps the user was not meant to just do blind full updates. If anyone can shed some light on that it would be great
Now I know that test releases are based for gurus, but i'm just learning and don't have anything to lose/productive so it's not a big problem to do full reinstalls.
Secondly, is it not possible to add repos? When I tried to, I kept getting some kind of mirror detection problem.
