Fedora 9 x64
Posted 30 September 2008 - 03:10 AM
I'm not a noobie to linux and using it as my main OS since a long long time I'm presently working on Fedora 9 x86 machine, everything is, of course, working smoothly apart a minor annoyance my 2.6 kernel had with my sata discs that was easily, now the problem is my machine is running 4GB memory and I'm gonna upgrade to 8GB very soon so I'll need to switch to a 64bit version of Fedora, yes I know I could mess with PAE etc but... well I prefer to spend my time doing something else
Now I'm writing this as I remember having used Fedora 8 on my Core 2 Duo system with a few problems like mouse hangs, system hangs and a few other amenities I thought it was my system's problem but talking with other guys in the fedora's forums I've found out that a lot of people were having problems... *cough* poor testing *cough*. As you can imagine I would like to avoid all this as I prefer to spend my free time somewhere else and was wondering if anyone is using Fedora 9 x64 on his/her system and if it's running fine, better if you're using a Core 2 Duo processor
Thanks in advance guys, I know someone can help me

I'm leaving the topic open in case someone has suggestions.

I have tried fedora 9, but they moved to a new version of xorg so nvidia and ati drivers currently have limited support.

Just on a side note, probs with xorg are now solved and there is full support for accelerated drivers as well.

Anyhow I'm gonna install F9 next week and will eventually let you know how it goes, I'm not scared to fix them as I can even learn something in the process... I simply don't want to waste time eheheh.
