Fedora 0.94 & speedtouch and misc.



Hello all,

I downloaded and installed Fedora 0.94 today, in order to test it a while.

My config is:

- Sony Vayo pcg-grx416g
- HD 30 Go (windows-ntfs/vfat-for-storage/linux-part/swap)
- Videocard ATI Radeon Mobility 7500, 32 Mo
- flat screen 1600x1200
- mouse Logitech Mouseman Traveller (optical mouse)
- USB Hub with :
    Palm Tungsten T pda
    HP Deskjet 3420 printer
    Canon Canoscan N1240U
    Momobay hd 40 Go, divied in 2 vfat partitions


The installation process was very cool, no problem at all, french support was ok, 40mn later I had a beautifull Gnome desktop. The first impression was very great!


- /etc/fstab


I had to edit /etc/fstab in order to add everything excepted CD-Rom.
/hda5 (vfat), sda1 (vfat) and sda5(vfat) were not mounted during the
installation. I tried to mount /hda1 (ntfs) but after the reboot I could
see that the system didn't mount it, for it's a ntfs partition (with
Mandrake 9.2, I could at least access some files in /hda1).


- adsl connexion (modprobe bug?)


I tried to install the speedtouch drivers from Benoit Papillaut. I
followed a step-by-step configuration found here:
http://christophe.delord.free.fr/en/adsl/redhat.html
Everything was ok until I launched the startadsl script in a root
console. I still get error messages like "modprobe not found" and
"modem_run not found".
So I typed "modprobe usbcore" in a root console and got the same kind of
error message: "modprobe: command not found".
How is it possible??? Did I miss something in the install process?


- 3D acceleration?


Testing Mandrake 9.2 few days ago, I had the support for 3D
acceleration, and so I could launch and play TuxRacer or some OpenGL
screensavers. Now in Fedora I guess 3D support is not installed... How
to install it? What package should I install?


I didn"t try the pda, the printer and the scanner yet.



Thanks for your help everyone!


(and sorry for my english, I am french)

Regards,

Kibosh
