Publisher's Description

The Fedora Project is an openly-developed project designed by Red Hat, open for general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project objectives. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from open source software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora Core about 2-3 times a year, with a public release schedule. The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate in building Fedora Core and will invite and encourage more outside participation than in past releases. By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operating system more in line with the ideals of free software and more appealing to the open source community.

This is a link to the 386 version. Use Fedora Torrent Server instead to get what you want . https://torrents.fedoraproject.org/

Fedora itself is a nice operating system but the new version of the anaconda installer is terrible. Don't even think about installing Fedora in a complex partitioning system.

This is an excellent distro - but only if you have a very uncomplicated partitioning setup. I defy anybody to tell me how you could setup a RAID5 for examp[le - especially with other OS's on the disks. I need to take an upgrae path form FC17-Fedora18 (and maybe the Alphia if I can). This was very easy in Fedora 17. So because of he new Anaconda installer it gets a 3 (but for me a 0)

the finest distro until the moment , iv been using it since it came out , tried it with the applications that i usually use on ubuntu 9.04 , and it shocked me with the stability , its fast and stable , never crashed " i play alot with the system settings and configurations" .

After I installed the Nvidia driver for F11Preview via Yumming it, it eventually booted up after I forced my PC to shut off. I like KDE 4.2.2 a lot, but I also like Gnome 2.26, yet I got the wireless icon on the taskbar on both. Yeah, it's stable. I have 2.6.29.3 kernel. EXT4 is about time! Needs extents badly. I used EXT4 in Fedora 10 as well.

I'm actually giving F11 Preview a 9.5, because I had to use the basic video driver for Geforce 8800 GTX like in OpenSuse 11.1. OpenSuse 11 and Fedora 10 didn't have these normal install problems. I am fair where Wine isn't avaliable, because it puts Red Hat's butt in the court room vs. Microsoft. They could finally add Linux unified kernel though! I wish KDE or Gnome made a desktop screen recording application into x264. Neither Fedora and OpenSuse package install DVD with Mediacoder!

I've always appreciated Fedora for its broad hardware compatibility, especially compared to the ubuntu family. And this Fedora 10 preview is very stable.

However, like DudeBoyz, unless you're constantly updating your system, OpenSUSE (or SLED) is likely a better (RPM) option than Fedora for most users. At the least, you'll get the best graphics -- better than Mac IMO -- a system that plays well with Windows, and extreme stability.

Pretty decent product, but I think I would take SUSE Linux over this for business and Mandriva Linux for home. Both of those apps are updated pretty frequently and do a better job of keeping up with the small business / consumer market.

Not bad, but nothing special either, imo. In fact, the dumbed down config stands in the way of making the environment fit the preferences of the users. I do not think it holds up well against the competition.

Question: is it possible to install network drivers without being wired? That is great with Ubuntu, it's easy to install the gcc+ with the aptitude command. This should be possible in any modern distro - why not include the packages in the dvd-version? Since most people now a days is connected through wifi.

I have VMWare Workstation 5.5.4 and atmepted to install Fedora 7 on top of it. It installs, but some quirky behavior. First the GUI on boot up in the VMWare window is half the size it should be and after its done booting up it switches to huge oversize for logging on. After I log on the resolution switches to the 1280X1024 in full screen just as I wanted.

I have had success with other versions, but this one a little different.

I tried different settings on install such as using IDE instead of SCSI. That seemed to get it installed, but it has the quarky behavior.

Anyone share there settings how to install it correctly?

Any help much appreciated.

I have founds tons of information on how to install VMWare on top of Fedora, but scares on Fedora on VMWare.

Thanks,

Fedora 7 installed flawlessly for me. Took awhile to download, but the torrents were loaded down. Took about 3 hours or so to get.

My Nvidia card works great with the driver from Livna and all multimedia functions are working great. Likewise, my HP multifunction printer was automatically recognized and working, as was my 19 inch wide screen LCD display.

Also, no problems with the KVM switch....working fine between my box with Fedora 7 and my other with SUSE 10.2. I'm really more familiar with SUSE, but the Fedora 7 installation was a snap...and it boots quickly!

zridling reviewed v7 on May 31, 2007

Holy cow, am I glad I found Fedora! If you're not a n00b stuck on Ubuntu yet, check out Fedora 7, which really expands your desktop options. The graphics and UI alone are incredible (kinda puts Vista to shame, really). And it's fast even on old machines. Comes in 32 & 64-bit versions. Even if you're using a Linux machine for background tasks, Fedora 7 is rock solid stable, and unlike a few distros, it's very easy to update and upgrade.

New to this release is the Revisor Tool, which is a graphical application built on top of Fedora's other build tools that allows you to quickly build an ISO, live CD, etc. This is truly Fedora's advantage. Also, its Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology has been integrated with the Fedora graphical virtualization manager tool. Unlike some, KVM provides a full virtualization solution, and users have a choice between KVM and Xen, along with Qemu, in version 7.

Unlike Vista, which does not recognize my new monitor or my new HP printer (both manufacturers told me to wait till SP1 for drivers), Fedora_7 recognized both. I've got all my TrueType fonts installed by merely click-n-drag, loaded Opera and WinRAR in less than a minute, and my system will hibernate properly — again, unlike Vista. Go figure. Then go get Fedora.

Fedora is quite Impressive. I have been using this I am quite satisfied with Fedora. I really like the Live CD so that we can have idea about Hardware compatibility before installing the OS. It would be great if Microsoft follows these setps. I am a Sri Lankan Tamil I have seen built in support for Tamil via UNICODE :). I noticed the download speed is lower than Bittorrent based download via http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/ may be because I am in Sri Lanka.

iv included fedora 7 test 2 on my vmware collection , looks promising , faster than older version , and even faster and more stable than other distros such as opensuse 10.2, but there is one little thing i like in Ubuntu , you have to download a single cd to run the system with minimal set of applications and then you can download the packages you want using apt-get, i hope if i see fedora going that way , it will be much easier for us to download fedora's versions , so we dont have to download a 3.xGB dvd or a 5 CD images to get the system run.

Oh darn! This is what is really frustating about Linux. Things are moving so fast, its easy to be left behind. I just finished downloading and installing Fedora Core 5 yesterday and today I see there's a new version out.
I am shifting over from Mandrake 10 and I must say that Mandrake was a lot more user friendly than FC. However, I guess once I figure my way around here, its gonna be a much more thrilling experience.

The biggest new feature in Fedora 6 is support for Intel-based Macs. Other than that, it's just a bunch of incremental version updates (for example, Gnome to 2.15 and KDE to 3.5.3). There are some minor improvements which may important to a tiny number of people, such as IPv6 support during install, but for most existing Fedora 5 users, just run yum instead of wasting the bandwidth to download Fedora 6.

try PC-BSD

C-BSD has as its goal to be an easy to install and use desktop OS, which is built on the FreeBSD operating system. To accomplish this, it currently has a graphical installation, which will enable even UNIX novices to easily install and getup and running. The system comes loaded with the "K" Desktop Environment (KDE), which lets users immediately sit down to a familiar interface. Also developed exclusively for PC-BSD is the PBI system, which lets users download and install their applications in a self-extracting & installing format, similar to InstallShield® on Windows®.

Installer crashed. (Build 4.90) This continues the legacy of Fedora being crap. Check out CentOS instead. They change compilers and libraries for no reason, its just a pissing contest between SuSE and RedHat to make things a higher version number, no one cares if your stuff actually works.

Why compile with GCC 4.02-beta-99-daily-snapshot-uber-10-build-secret444 when 3.4.x can do most of 4.x can do save autovectorization, but you give up stability?

Given the horribly fragmented state of Linux, I can only hope people continue to learn more of CentOS, FreeBSD and Solaris/OpenSolaris.

It really gets tiresome to see the Linux kernel implemented 800 different ways, from Gentoo, to Slack, to RedHat, to Fedora, to SuSE, to list goes on and on. I can generally master each fairly quickly, but most of them dont "self heal," like RHEL or CentOS with nightly up2date/yum checks.

Obviously, what makes "the best" distribution is largely subject to personal preference, so these ratings are fairly pointless. But this is a solid Linux distro I would recommend, with a straightforward installation and a good set of packages. Updating it is even more simple. Because it is Red Hat based, there is a wealth of documentation sources online if you run into any snag.

The most impressive thing about Fedora 4 is its installer, at least on the DVD version, dunno if it's different when installing from CDs or not. It's absolutely amazing and has to be seen to be believed. However, the environment itself leaves a few things to be desired. It just seemd a bit buggy and is some ways incomplete to me, especially when compared with Ubuntu right out of the box.

It's a good distro, but it really is a "test" and shouldn't be expected to operate properly, as far as my experience with it goes.

Gonna give it a 4 because it's not release software and the installer really is impressive.

To be honest Linux Distros are still a mixed bag in my opinion. I've tried SuSe which worked fine on my old Advent Laptop up to 8.1 Pro, then I switched to Mandrake 10.1 on my new Toshiba laptop and wasn't that inpressed by any of the GUIs on offer.

Spend helf a day downloading Fedora Core 3 and found out that sound no longer worked so switched back to Mandrake 10.1 and updated to 10.2 and sound didn't work again. What's the deal? Sure Gnome is looking a lot more together (I prefer Gnome over KDE but there's just so much garbage included and so many dependancies that Linux still just comes across as a geek toy for people who like to spend hours trying to fix things that should work fine in the first place.

I might download this distro but Linux is fast becoming my least favourite OS of all time. Don't get me wrong - I'm not a MS fan and practically all the software I have running on my Laptop is either Open Source or Freeware. It's just Linux is still so ... naff.

4 stars because I don't want to scupper the rating based on a non-direct review of this distro.

I installed the severn version and even this beta version worked very well. This distribution looks very promising. I recommend it to newebies like I am one. Don't know how good it's for experienced users.
@TylerRuleZ did you check it witht he checksum verifier file? file size isn't the only thing that shows you if the file is correct. Don't blame the distro when there was maybe problem with the download. I verfied my severn version with the checksum and it was fine. after burning I did the check of all 3 mediums and no problems. I advice you to verify with the checksum file and to redownload the wrong isos, maybe from another mirror.

I have downloaded the i386 ISO images (Discs 1-3). However, during installation when the media (CD) integrity was verified, it advised the CD FAILED the test. I compared the data size of the ISO image I had to the FTP server's one and it's correctly at 666,861,568 bytes. Even I slipped the test and "install anyway" it will still stop at one of the file - advised sth like corruption, etc and dropped out of installation. What to do??

Did AOL ever buy Red hat? Anyhow this is one of the worst Linux distributions and I would recommend it to anyone who uses Linux just because they heard it was the OS that smarter people and techies use so they can use words like "noob" and "leet" (Most of the linux userbase, sadly). I personally recommend BSD, but for Linux, go Slack-ware all the way.

batjohan & eletrik: I'm sorry, but I was under the impression you were supposed to review Red Hat, not Slack nor Deb. Some people would say you should take your troll carsas and hit the road, for that's what your comments constitute (trolling), but not I. Me? I would advise you to review Red Hat on its own merits and rate it thusly (on its own merits). Sure, *mention* Slackware and Debian if you think they're better, but it is the height of irreponsibility to give Red Hat a low rating, and use the privelidge of posting as an opportunity to shill a personal agenda. Personally I was going to give this release a 3 (3.5 if I could), because everything is still too slow and resource intensive relative to Windows. Sure Red Hat is no different that the others in this regard; however, Red Hat *does* contribute code and can otherwise influence the community toward the right direction vis a vis their role as a leading Linux integrator. I *was* going to give a 3.5, but thanks to the two "gentlemen" below, I will give a 5 to counteract their irresponsibility.

After reading most of the posts, most of you do not realize that you can get most anything running on a Linux system. I install it, and it is pretty much the same as all the other distro, it just has more hardware support and gui enchanments. I would like to say that I was able to compile a mplayer that was able to play mp3 on 9.

I installed Synaptic (which uses apt-get) and then got Xmms with mp3 support, mplayer etc. I turned on vsftp and ftp worked. What can I say? Everything just worked for me. This is the first distro I can say that about. I like Mandrake and SuSE also but this is the first time I didn't have to tweak a single thing to get it to work. Just got lucky I guess.

I had been used Red Hat Linux for quite a long time. But I just upgrade my RH to version 9. However, I discover that there is no reasons to upgrade or install this version. First, most of the software it provided is almost the same with version 8.0. The most disadvantage is Red Hat Linux 9 cannot play mp3. I don't know why Red Hat use such reason(Due to the license reason) to said remove the playback decoder from Red Hat Linux 9. I don't LIKE it.

Maybe if you have fast cpu (and to a lesser extent video) and lots of fast RAM it's more responsive than 2K/XP, but that doesn't do very much for people that have slower machines that can still run 2K or XP quite fast (when compared to Linux). You see, anything can be fast when you cache *everything* in RAM (imagine if you have 20 GB of RAM and used it as a harddrive...) Linux on the desktop still has a long way to go to outperform NT (2K/XP), never mind W9x (but then you can't really compare the two, though I have seen a lot of Linux people try to claim Linux+GNOME or KDE is as fast or faster even than 9x. Yeah right). Make all teh claims you like about GNU Linux being faster/more responsive than 2K/XP, it simply is not true *yet* (on lower end hardware anyway). Until GNU Linux can hold its own against *any* hardware that runs 2K/XP well (not just high-end hardware where, like I said, you can cache everything), it will not win me over (never mind all the other areas where Linux falls short in terms of user-friendliness, hardware comptibility, etc).
people here can judge for themselves: try Linux. Red Hat 9 *is* the best distro release atm imo. If you have faster hardware and don't mind holding your OS's hand a bit, maybe you'll lke it. I encourage those with medium-lower end hardware (that nevertheless still runs 2K/XP and its apps just fine): try this newest Linux distro release, and tell me whether or not the hype is true. Are the Linux zelotes selling you a "bill of goods", or does it really perform as good or better than NT? No doubt lots will reply and say it does, but try it for yourself and make your own determination.

Carlson, please. MS owned? I am not, we use all Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris machines at the place where I work. I find you offensive and rude, and unable to be technical. I don't know what the 8.1.b3 is like, but I can tell you about 8.1 in general. And if 8.1.b2 and 8.1.b3 are so different then something is broken, bad. . .

Anyways, I track RHN, Bugtraq, rawhide, so don't you even dare call this a troll. I also have valid problems with Redhat. So to answer your stupid, arrogant know-nothing comments: 1) I am commenting on 8.1.bx, 2) not relevant anymore because I didn't DL 8.1.b3, 3) again irrelevant. You amuse me, you make 3 points out of one, you snark, that means you have to try and expound on NOTHING. Did you fail the bar exam? That is what a bad lawyer would do. 4) Design flaws tend to last the lifetime of a product, see Windows NT for an example. Some of the same problems exist today as they did when NT 3.1 was released. My preference for things other than RedHat (eg FreeBSD)are completely valid. You know dumb you look? You are the troll here. You cannot engage in a technical rebuttal of why I prefer say, FreeBSD, and you use amateur flak such are accusing me of Microsoft zealotry which is baseless and unfounded, and you suffer from the same zealotry that you accuse. I have legitimate critical problems with RedHat 8.x. Most everyone I know who uses RedHat linux as a server is using 6.2 or 7.1, and 6.2 and 7.1 are available for far more machines/architectures than is 8.x. You are offensive, baseless and if you think you are doing combat with someone who supports Microsoft, you are dead wrong. It was once said: BSD is for those who love Unix, Linux is for those who hate Microsoft. I will not subscribe to blind love, and I for one think Debian and Gentoo, and things like Open/Free/NetBSD deserve a *lot* more airtime than RedHat/SuSE/Mandrake get. Especially RedHat. If you really worked with Unix or supporting a Unix infrastructure or programmers you would know what I'm talking about. And I would like to add that we use Solaris for the NFS/home directory server. Why? RH/Linux NFS is broken as an NFS server. Today. How about 'dem apples?

2) Must have 2 650MB+ iso's to do any sort of install. After install you can begin testing.
3) No way you got them today my friend. The servers that have it are swamped.
4) Zeio is quoting postings from Jan, 2001. This is a lifetime ago by technology standards.

Stir vigorously. Heat for 5 minutes on 450.

There are two possible outcomes for this recipe, a troll or a MS / MS "owned" company employee with too much time on their hands.

No one is interested in the FUD or the creative spelling.

Redhat is not the best Unix / Unix variant in the world, but they do seek a broader appeal than most. The 8.1 beta 3 does have some issues I am sure. Hopefully a few less issues than 8.1 beta 2, which I have been using exclusively on my laptop since it was released. It has not given me any troubles and has been fun to use for development and for productivity work. Nothing you would not expect from a standard beta. Much more stable that production released operating systems from our friends to the upper right.

Given that it has KDE 3.0.2, Gnome 2.0.1, GCC 3.1 amd Mozilla 1 that would probably justify nameing it Redhat Linux 8.0 once it's out of beta. On the otherhand though, it's useing version 2.4.18 of the kernel just as 7.3 did, so maybe they might name it Redhat Linux 7.4 when it get's out of beta. Over on Distrowatch they're calling it 7.4 Beta.
Personally I would of liked Redhat's next Distro to have version 2.4.19 of the kernel (once it's released), to make it really worth the download of the ISO's.

They removed linuxconf (good text console based configurator) and still haven't learned to use real GCC release and instead they continue to use that lame 2.96. (so you will have to get 2.95.3 for linux 2.5 kernel compiles (per the directions in thier docs) and get GCC 3.0.4 for evrything else. This is getting ANNOYING.)

KDE3/ XFree 4.2 had some video corruption for me on a cheesy ATI card in a server, but no show stoppers.

Other than that its a routine upgrade.

Good - they use glibc 2.2.5 - a standard GNU release, but they compiled it with the LAME 2.96 compiler. We shall SEE if they got the compiler right, its typical that if a broken compiler compiles a library the library can be strangely broken. Now that 2.2.5 can be compiled by GNU GCC, as well as KDE, RedHat is just being spiteful and not propelry deprecating GCC 2.96X.

I give this a 5/5, because its not a bad system.

all software will have bugs, it is a fact. all operating systems will have bugs as they are software! Now *NIX and Windows and Novell are all good. they are good indifferent ways tho. I like Novell as the other guy said, it runs prefectly, runs ASP just fine ;) and i have never had any security problems with it that i cant fix very quickly. Windows has Service Packs every 6 months or so and hotfixes to fix any problems that are considered a major problem by the computer community (well that is how it works according to MS!) Linux is kinda bad here, if there is a problem because it is open source it can be exploited to teh full, programmers can analyze the source so they know how it works 100% and take full advantage, something they dont have with Windows. Like the other person said it is kinda like giving someone a copy of your car keys! Linux is nice but it is the most unsecure OS unless you know how to make it secure! if you install Windows and Linux Windows is more secure "out of the box" than Linux is anyday! I like Windows, my Windows 2000 Adv. Server systems are running just fine and always have been. if there is a security patch i need to put on that requires a reboot then the clustering works just fine and shares the load that the servers have. i just reboot one at a time. At the end of the day it is up to you (or your boss i guess!) what server OS you use. in my opinion i would use Windows or Novell and leave Linux alone. but that is just my 2c

What many of you don't realize is that all "big iron" systems run Unix. Linux is just another Unix. Most shops do NOT "go back" to Windows or even Novell (which happens to be a great NOS) once they have dabbled with Mission Critical Enterprise grade systems (Read: Unix). Anyone who claims otherwise can continue to flip burgers while IT departments everywhere leave them behind. Novell makes an excellent File and Print server, there is no denying that, NDS leaves AD in the dust. Windows may make a great desktop O/S for many corporate and even most non technical home users, but to say that it can oust Unix (or Linux) is a joke.

What many of you forget is the fact that many people have tried unix in the business environment and have then afterwards gone back to Windows NT or Novell based Servers. Why? Because NT and Novell systems can be as solid as you claim linux to be. It all depends on which 3RD PARTY apps you add. Just like in Linux, if you add a program that is known to cause issues (AOL for example) then your stability goes to the crapper. Of course not all apps cause lack in robustness.

Yes Unix was the first 32 bit OS. Linsux is for hackers I personally will not use any "OS" that is open source because it's like giving the keys to your car to a thief then asking where did your car go? LOL Now don’t get me wrong… I run Open source software, but refuse to for a OS. As for MS it's ok.. has bugs.. has holes they do work pretty fast to fix anything that is found. This code red was a mess, but linsux has issues too... Most of the server guys I know removed linsux do to security holes and hacking. We can all sit here and b**** out each OS just like I did, But all in all... The top OS is ... NOVELL. What's funny is all these virus’s running around and security holes in other OS's but my Novell Server has been up and running for over 2 years now... no crashes... no reboots... no hacking... no patches. Just solid as a ROCK. You guys might want to talk a real good hard look at Novell 6 :) Someone told me the other day when they seen the 6 IBM Netfinity 5600 Server I have running with Novell on them... his words were.. ewwwwww... My reply was look at the up time and show me a virus wrote for Novell. Needless to say He shut up quick and 2 days later wanted my help to remove his MS and linsux OS's and replace it with Novell and enrolled in class to become a Novell CNA/CNE.
I guess we all can b**** and complain, but take the time to look over Novell's new OS version 6. And for the most popular question I get asked… YES Novell does handle ASP.
