See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Chromium. The maintainer is Tom "Spot" Callaway who works on that effort.Then there are some impressions I got as a migrator, I had issues I told, I dont understand that you defend the chromium-situation, why cant fedora either not write anything about chromium or link to the relative site/resource, both would be better than say there is the official (stable) thing thats totaly outdated and totaly unstable. That will happen to other newcomers too.
It is about elaboration and approach of the post although some questions are valid. The real issue is some people do not know how to formulate a good question with minimal perception. Reread your own post and see what went wrong. Regardless the distro of choice, research first before asking.I dont like this attitude, when I say something to ubuntu noobs or maybe even archlinux noobs or just people with problems and issues I dont have to degrate them each second sentence and I feel myself not personaly attacked like you seem to do.
But before I say nothing I maybe go over the goal to get reactions, so I can learn and maybe others can learn some stuff too.
I dont flame against upstream developers most of the time, but distributions are something else... and I mixed it a bit flaming a bit feadback a bit suggestions to make something better, so I am not a troll or something.
I am just new to it, and wanted to talk about about my experince and about my fears and stuff ^^
and for some its good to get feedback what could be better for a beginner. that fedora wiki site isnt the best thats all... I know it now and its ok, but you cant alway rtfm to beginners at least if you maybe some day will become more sucessful as distribution as ubuntu is.
im afraid there gonna have to use the Terminal.They aren't going to use the terminal for ANYTHING AT ALL NO MATTER WHAT
werent you ever told not to assume?BTW: I assume that you're browsing with something like lynx, right?
there's no need to yell either, my hearing is quite fine thanks

I don't really care about cool theories. I care on result I would feel on my own skin. And I really care to suffer as little as possible from my choice :P.Everything can run out of memory. EVERYTHING. No exception.
As for "everything" I can give you at least one example where it's not a case. You see, on C you can use thing called "static memory allocation". It's more common for simple firmwares code, but once again, you told "EVERYTHING. No exception", don't you? So for me it's enough to find just 1 case to prove you wrong. In such case there is no memory allocator exists and everything is statically defined at compile time. So you can't run out of memory in this mode for quite obvious reasons. This approach used in high-reliability things. You would be unhappy if microcontroller who controls your car brakes, engine or whatever would suddenly run out of memory, right?
"Quite" does not counts. Even single failure on remotely controlled machine could be a problem, etc.And FYI: I've used yum quite successfully on systems with only 64 MB, maybe even 32, though that might not even boot a modern kernel.
It requires some disk space. Possibly comparable to minimal disk image of the whole system. Minimal Debian/Ubuntu for example works fine on 128Mb without any swap. And I had no any single failure attributed to package manager. Unlike with yum.I suggest that you don't forget to enable swap. There should be no memory problems.
Well, cool theories again. But on practice it's what disk-bound. So on SSD and fast network apt completes it's job in a matter of seconds.Huh? Well if apt just goes through a blob mess of packages, that must make it EXTREMELY slow.... in fact, this would directly contradict your first point! Guaranteed!
I just compared my typical usage patterns. Yum loses on them. I don't see why it's unfair to admit it.And when trying to compare similar things fairly, YOU "suxx". You've got a bunch of preconceptions and are bring it out in an ignorant puke of worthless contradictions.
but one good news, usb-sound now seems to work, magicly hope thats permanent now ^^
Keep it go
