Fedora 12 beta issues


I installed and tested F12 beta (and later updated to rawhide).


# lspci -v
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV730XT [Radeon HD 4670] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Device 2003

Two displays connected:
a) CRT, recognized as 1600x1200 @ 85 Hz (left) (recognized as 1280x1024 @ 85 Hz, which is OK)
b) LCD, recognized as 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz (right)

Issues I found:

1. Install log shows the following issues (or potential issues):

Installing fontpackages-filesystem-1.27-1.fc12.noarch
warning: fontpackages-filesystem-1.27-1.fc12.noarch: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 signature: NOKEY, key ID 57bbccba

Installing kernel-PAE-
W: Possible missing firmware ql8100_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware aic94xx-seq.fw for module aic94xx.ko

2. Dailymotion videos are terribly slow -- look like a slideshow (2fps?)
Whole system slows down to a crawl when playing video (HTML5 tag, not flash), even typing in terminal feels like '97 over ssh.

3. Anaconda/First boot -- sees the screen size as if it was total of two displays but uses only one of them (b -- see hardware above), hence the some information and buttons are invisible (displayed off screen). I can provide photos of what it looks like.

4. KDE: Display settings: change display resolution works incorrectly -- can´t move screen position vs. the other screen. I changed screen (a) from 1280x1024 -> 1600x1200 and got screen overlap -- whatever is displayed in the middle, is showing up "partial clone" on both screens.

5. KDE: Colors are all over the place -- parts of UI change colors as they please: to purple, green, blue, black, etc. without reason. Random "destruction" patterns show up on UI elements.

6. KDE: Lancelot -> Switch user gives an error: "Lancelot can not find your display manager. This mean that it not able to retrieve the list of currently running sessions, or start a new one." (there is also missing "is" in this error message: "that it [is] not able"). Note: I see the same in Fedora 11.

7. KDE: kpackagekit can´t import repo keys, even after entering root password.

8. glxgears works but with horizontal lines of random rubbish. I havent tried mesa-dri-drivers-experimental yet...

9. Pulseaudio generally works -- I'm happy that digital optical out works! Pavucontrol (not installed by default?) crashes when I choose "Pulseaudio server" in KDE multimedia settings.

Should I BZ any of the above?
