    Default Fedora 11 Alpha Comes With Huge Feature Set

    Phoronix: Fedora 11 Released With Huge Feature Set

    While a few delays were experienced by the Red Hat engineers and community working on Fedora 11 (a.k.a. Leonidas), the first alpha release of this popular Linux distribution is now available...

    Whoops, title fixed. Sorry about that, exhausted from all the traveling this week.

    Can't remember where, but I read that EXT4 doesn't have defragmentation support right now. A shame, as that would really be the killer feature for a Linux FS.

    Let's hope that BTRfs makes it into Anaconda

    Some of the desktop features in Fedora 11 include a new GNOME volume control interface
    A new volume control interface?! You call that an exciting new feature? You've got to be kidding me...

    Maybe it's the pre-installed MinGW instead.

    But on a more serious note, congrats to them. I hope they also fixed up some of that SELinux stuff - I managed to bork my f10 after half an hour of use and now I cannot have it check for updates at all.

    Good thing there's Fedora. People who do pre-alpha testing so that the rest of us who use useful distros get less bugs later

    I had the same issue as well- where it try to use the update app, and would fail with a message about .org.dbus (or something similar) not having permissions.

    I ended up using yum to update the packages (whatever ones were mentioned in the error message, plus selinux policies, hal, and yum updates). I can't remember exactly which package did it, but after installing the right upgrade, the updater app started working again.
    Hope that helps!

    It was a dbus issue, not SElinux, and yes, you need to issue a manual "yum update" in order to revert dbus back to a working version...

    Ah, thanks for that.
