First date



Hi all,

So here comes my impressions on my first date with this Core
thing:


  * I decided not to install all packages, then I found that I
cannot select individual ones.  So I tried adding packages from
the add/remove program.  Then I selected my packages, and tried
to install them, when found that:
	a) /dev/cdrom is pointed to /dev/hdc, this used to work
on previous Red Hats, but this time I had to calibrate it to
point to /dev/scd0.
	b) Even after that, the add/remove program cannot find
the CD there, and keeps asking for CD.  When I mount the CD, and
press Ok in the dialog, I find it unmounted..
	c) I even couldn't copy/paste the list of selected
packages, so I wrote them down by hand, to feed them to up2date.


  * Then I proceeded with up2date, to install some new packages.
Then I got the following weird error.  Someone let me know if I'm
getting faked packages?

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
########################################
apel-10.6-1.noarch.rpm:     ########################## Done.
The package apel-10.6-1 is not signed with a GPG signature.
Aborting...
Package apel-10.6-1 does not have a GPG signature.
 Aborting...


  * Bitstream-vera fonts are installed, but are not default.  It
was really hard to read the other fonts, after two months with
vera fonts from Ximian.  I took me a while to findout that they
are installed, and are available under name Bitstream Vera, not
Vera.

  * Many many places here and there, there are still Red Hat's,
that should be replaced by Fedora equivalents.  One funny example
is the Login Screen chooser which has the thumbnail from Red Hat 9.

  * Cool thing, DRI works!

  * Nothing more yet.
