    I might just give it a whirl. I am only half joking here, but it would be nice to see a spin like this one, only without PulseAudio and all its hooks, and with a working Alsa, or perhaps OSSv4
    Regards,
    Bob

    Downloaded and installed it just a few hours ago on a spare drive. Cannot be updated, it can't find the repo or something, even the software updater had a dependency problem on every package. Not yet ready for prime time, me thinks.

    While I appreciate your support for Croatia it would be more useful for others if the default keyboard was US. And maybe the default timezone could be UTC not Zagreb.

    Perhaps the timeout on the initial choice of keyboard should be lengthened, so it would be easier to make a choice before the computer tumbles you into the default login.

    I have used the Fedora liveusb-creator program to move this system to a USB memory stick. After several reboots, I finally managed to change the default keyboard and timezone. This is now in persistent storage so I don't have to do it again.

    After installing it on few machines all updated fine without any issues. What are the issues you had? What kind of dependency issues? Thank you for your report.

    Good point, I was left on Croatian by mistake, I'll fix it for next release in few weeks.

    I'll do that also.

    Thank you for your feedback. Do you have update and dependency issues as others reported?

    I've managed to install the live cd onto a compaq mini 311, works perfectly with wifi.

    I had similar issues with the repo update.

    What I had to do is edit /etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo and chromium.repo and set enabled to 0 in the those files.

    Then a "yum check-update& yum update" did the trick.

    Could you make a similar distro but with just a base fedora and the broadcom wifi drivers?

    There are two things i don't like in Fedora, maybe it's a feedback for you to do it better.

    1.) I hate the Fedora OpenOffice version - important things are cut out cause of licenses issues. I've to reinstall it always from the website (maybe you could add a version with templates, spellchecks, cliparts etc. too)

    2.) I'm a Swiftweasel fan. It's in my opinion fast and snappier than FF. Maybe it's an idea too.

    I hate having to remove the packages I don't want more than added the ones I want.

    But i definitely must have the packages I NEED which obviously are the bits that make the hardware work.

    The broadcom drivers are great aswell as nvidia.

    and OO3,Firefox,Python, Ruby, Java, Flash, Codec. The essentials.

    an essentials only remix of this would be awesome.

    Love using Fedora Community Remix 12 on both my netbook and desktop machine, however, there is an issue with the Chromium Repo:

    The url used is http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F/ when I think it should be http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F12/

    Hope that helps someone.
