Re: F9 Alpha Observations

1 - The install itself was fine, except once it go to installing the
packages.  That step took around 2 hours for 900 packages, which this
being the plain ole default install that is suggested, and customization
done later.

2 - radeonhd xorg driver was not installed by default, therefore x
locked up when trying to start.  Had to manually change xorg.conf to
vesa driver to get it running.  Installed radeonhd after and using it
now, and so far it works, and recognized monitor.  Card is x1300 and
monitor is HP w1907.

Been discussed already on lists but have not seen a bz about it (I may have missed it).

3 - FF3 beta 2 that comes with it, seems to open with a home page of
www.s.com and I have already setup preferences to my own home page.  I
can't find the reference to www.s.com at all.  Although, if I click the
home button, it will go to my home page.

Is that a site you manually entered ever?  Are you opening/recovering a session?

4 - Maybe not Fedora's problem, maybe so, but flash from adobe doesn't
seem to be recognized by FF3 beta 2.  Not sure if java is either?  I
didn't even see a plugins dir in /usr/lib/firefox neither. about:plugins
only shows adobe reader stuff and that's it.

I think you need to yum install libflashsupport, then install the flash-plugin rpm from adobe for it to be grabbed by FF3. Do you have libflashsupport installed yet? This may not be part of the default install set (if not maybe it should be).

5 - When trying to set system time and pick weather info, on system time
it asks to authenticate, so I put in root password and it just blinks at
me and asks again.  Never lets me pick to set time to another
computer/location or anything.

This is policykit requesting authentication for /usr/libexec/clock-applet? Do you realize that clicking the clock-applet->location edit->time settings opens the dialog to change system time, then clicking 'set system time' does not open a new dialog it only applies what is shown? (change the values, then set system time) The authentication should be happening only after you try to apply the settings (which the 'set system time' button does).

I do notice that if you put in the wrong password (so not authorized) it will fail to even ask for the password again and just keep closing as soon as you click 'system time' but not change it. I've had to go delete the authorization to change system time to get this to stop, then reauthorize. There may be some issues with policykit keeping 'not really authorized' authorizations and just not letting you try again.
