Subject: Want to Help Fedora Suck Less
Is this the right place to help with the overall system, even though
the issues I'm having are related to specific hardware? I'm having
issues with video drivers (open source and proprietary), audio drivers
(on a ThinkPad 600X, alsa bug 305, FWIW); but also the default battery
and configuration settings are not very good, causing shortened
battery run-time and battery life, especially for the secondary
If you are having problems with drivers etc always search Bugzilla to determine
if the issue has been reported as there may be a work around or if nothine is
listed always try to report so things can be looked in to.
Have you considered using laptop mode tools which can help with hard disk
clicking and power saving?
The following websites may also help:
What's the best way to help make sure Fedora becomes even more
on these machines?
Consider becoming a Bugzapper so you are testing Alpha, Beta... Preview etc.
I am a software developer by trade, and I have written very
assembly and C code, just not for Linux. I'm happy to learn but don't
have a ton of free time. I'd like to find one or more mentors who will
instruct me on the best ways to nudge developers and maintainers of
existing projects, but getting the latest software, building, testing
How do I start?
See Bugzappers ref above ;=)
Hope the information helps.
