       connection and I am limited to 17 gigs download per month. In
       fact we had heavy rain this afternoon and the signal was blocked
       by the rain for about two hours.

       The computer with the problems is a new [to me] used computer
       with a new LiveCD Gnome install.


About that , now f-11 has deltarpms you don't have to worry about that. On my fresh livecd gnome install the update size was 81M but thanks to presto it only downloaded 10M which amounts to 90% savings ! except the anaconda storage bugs and soundcard not working i am quite impressed with f-11 it is definitely snappier and better than f-10.


       I am glad to hear that! I will install F-11 as soon as the furor
       dies down. At the moment I have three running F-10 but will
       eventually upgrade one, and then all ... I did a "preupgrade>
       from 9 to 10 on one computer and lost everything when it did not
       complete ... fortunately I had most but not all files backed up!

       Each new distro has been better than the preceding one though.

       Thanks.

       Bob
