I upgraded my RH8.0 to FC2 a few days ago.
Immideately after upgrade completed I ran 'yum update'
to update all installed packages. The FC2 box is now
working quite nicely except with some minor problems
e.g. Gnome theme and its application disapppeared (I
just post). KDE is working properly. Please try
update all installed packages to see whether your
situation can be improved.
