Unable to start gnome or kde(as of Fedora Core Test 2). I get the startup
"Fedora Core" without the icons and then a freeze (I am still able to Ctrl
Alt Bkspace to the prompt). I've looked at the logs and have problems with
the Alsa driver and the esound. I had gnome problems since RH 9.
With Fedora Core 1 I could start kde by using gdm in root and then logging
into root with the session being kde. Kde no longer works with this method.
Would a reinstall be a good recommend as opposed to an update?
I'm running a Athlon XP1600+ /w 512 mgs ram, FX5600 (an Abit Siluro 256mb
although I have gotten x to work (I dont see it being the video card)
Any troubleshooting suggestions would be great because I have an IBM R40
and FC T2 rocks on it!
I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, I don't know if
it's a bug that I could/should report on bugzilla, and nobody on #fedora
ever responds. My question is this: is it normal for Mozilla to appear
to have completely locked up for periods of time in excess of 45 seconds
when navigating to a new page? This happens to me very consistently and
I'm wondering if this has been happening to anyone else. It makes my
browsing an exceedingly slow and arduous process. Mozilla-Mail also
freezes when the browser does this. Yet after the wait, the page is seen
as loaded and the browser and mail client are functioning as normal.
This presents a serious detriment to usability if Mozilla is behaving
this way. A less patient person would assume Mozilla was crashing and
would end up Force-Quitting their browser several times per hour. If I
am unique in having this issue, I hope someone can offer suggestions on
how I can fix the problem.

I picked up an info tidbit lately (one one of these lists, I think), to
the effect that the next Fedora release will have SELinux; so, being as I
am paranoid on principle in my electronic ignorance, I'm trying to read
more than I can follow at http://www.nsa.gov/selinux -- especially since I
liked what I saw of Fedora, and would probably still be using it if it had
had a line in the GUI display config for my new flat panel monitor (as, I
hope & trust, it's apt to ere long).
Given that I live behind a hardware router as well as RedHat's medium
level of security -- and normally turn the cable modem off at night, as
well as shutting everything down when out of town, and updating every few
days when in town, or at once on receipt of any security notice from
RedHat -- does SELinux look like being more of a boon or a hassle?
If not, I should be looking at caosity and mandrake, to have an
alternative when I cease to be safe (or able at all!) to run RH9 ...
