Re: fedora-legacy-list Digest, Vol 3, Issue 24



The only thing to think about with FC1, perhaps, is that it is the last
2.4 kernel release (unless FC2 offers a substitute 2.4. kernel). For many,
going to the 2.6 kernel at this time is not a viable option. Reasons include
wanting to let it be out there for a while to see what is and is not broken.

In our case, we use a filesystem called Openafs. The 2.6 kernel completely
broke openafs. I won't get into the politics of the situation, but if we 
were to go to a fedora core relase, it would have to be FC1.

I wonder if you will find that there is support for a release like FC1
a la rh7.3 as compared to the other FC releases.
