  • I have an AMD64 system, but I'm on the 32-bit Debian because the AMD64 Debian is a pure 64-bit system. I need 32-bit binaries sometimes and I don't fancy setting up a chroot with 32-bit libraries just so I can use them.

    Does the AMD64 Fedora handle 32-bit and 64-bit libraries in parallel? Does yum?

    Does Fedora Core 4 still use yum or will it move to apt4rpm? I don't mean to flame the yummers, but in my experience, apt4rpm is far better. And, in terms of GUIs, Synaptic works far better than gyum or yumex. Also, does it have NTFS support out of the box? That seemed to be the biggest complaint about FC3, that anyone dual-booting had to download the kernel module, realise you had downloaded the wrong module, check kernel version, download the right module, and finally modprobe it.
  • anyone got an apt-repository on this, so I can point my existing FC setup to it?
  • Runs OK for me.
    But I seem to have lost some desktop icons.
  • I'd seriously consider using Fedora Core if it wasn't built for i386. Why in the world would I pay for a nice modern processor and not take advantage of it? Otherwise, it's a well-supported distro that looks and works great with some minor tweaking. This is why I use Gentoo.
