First look at FC2T2

Sorry for my poor English.

My mouse is a "Generic - 3 Button Mouse (PS/2)" .

I do a fresh install of FC2T3. I have copied initrd.img and vmlinuz in
my hard drive and add :
title Fedora Core (install)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img ramdisk_size=8192 askmethod
        initrd /initrd.img

in grub.conf

I use hard drive method to install FC2T3. The installation is done in
French. Profile workstation.

When anaconda start X11, if I move my mouse at the same time, X11 failed
with :
XIO : fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":1.0"
after 0 requests (0 know processed) with 0 events remaining.
Install exited abnormally.

Bug already filed :

In firstboot, the keyboard is qwerty. Known bug (reopen):
NB : Component=rhgb   Is this correct ?

Firstboot doesn't configure the display. Known bug :

xorg-x11-truetype-fonts is not installed by default. Normal ?

Mouse not configured for gpm. Known issue :
Product: RHEL

btw, why do we need /etc/sysconfig/gpm if gpm seams to not use it.

The sound is muted. Known bug :

mdmpd failed to startup. Known issue :

rhnsd is start by default. Is this useful for Fedora ?
$ chkconfig --list rhnsd
rhnsd           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf, i have :
Section "InputDevice"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

Why ? I have a "real" 3 buttons mouse.

Questions :
Where is ~/.xsession-errors ?

Can Fedora load pcspkr module by default ?
I do this with /etc/rc.d/rc.local .

Please, add :
alias mv="mv -i"
alias cp="cp -i"
alias rm="rm -i"
in /etc/skel/.bashrc

Conclusion : Good job ! FC2T3 is far better than T2.
