Hi everybody ;)
There is a LinuxWorld Summit in Warsaw, on 21st June. Is anybody
interested in coming? I am going to have a speech about Fedora, and it
would be fantastic if any of the Ambassadors came. I think we can also
can have a booth at the event. I am counting the most on people from
Germany. I hope some of you will be there :)
I am wondering where I can get a fedora tshirt. This is for myself..
IIRC someone asked about this before? but I can't find the email...
Is it possible to get them (paid for of course) for one self?
I gave a talk on "All about Fedora Core 5" last saturday, and it went
well. I did a short preview on SystemTap to illustrate it's kernel
instrumentation capabilities. I also gave away Fedora Handouts.
There were about 8-10 attendees, out of which 2 are already Fedora
users. Some questions (not in actual words though) asked were:
1) Is yum still as slow, as compared to apt-get?
2) How does beagle work internally?
3) What do you need to install, in order to run Xen?
4) Where can I get the kernel source rpm?
5) Does suspend and hibernation really work in FC5?
6) How does SystemTap work internally? How does the scripts look like?
Some feedbacks I got were (not in actual words of course):
1) Fedora should include mp3 support, otherwise new users will not be
able to play their favourite music. Some form of documentation on how
to setup mp3 support would be great. It should be easily accessible to
new users as well.

big and with a lot of hits. I have the permission to
add any banner i like in there without paying anything at all. Would
you like to put a fedora banner or something else
up there or you think it's not a good idea?
