The Fedora train never stops! I've just upgraded my machines (including this server) to Fedora 9 and I'm very pleased (as usual) with this new release. The polish of the desktop is fantastic. PackageKit is really simple to use (I love its "queue for backend operations" interface philosophy). NetworkManager has matured. The PulseAudio integration, that bothered me a lot in Fedora 8, seems to be complete (the sound daemon is always started and Ekiga won't crash anymore).
As usual, there are some sore spots. And I seemed to attract a lot of bugs this time. For example, among the most common bugs in F9, I got two: "Synaptics touchpad touching to tap doesn't work" and "Samsung hard disks crash the installer". The last one was a real problem and I ended up upgrading using YUM, which I don't recommend if you have a lot of installed packages and have to suffer ridiculous Brazilian "broadband" speeds.
But it gets better. I was hit by more obscure stuff: While installing Fedora on the university cluster I discovered that Anaconda doesn't work right now with static IPs. I ended up setting a DHCP server just for installing Fedora. Also, due to a rewrite GDM XDMCP support is broken. I must be one of the two guys who still use XDMCP to power an old terminal and share the (relatively) powerful desktop. I worked around it by enabling KDM instead of GDM.
The annoying thing about these bugs is that most of them were found on the beta testing period of F9, and none were corrected for the final release. At least, I don't have to feel guilt for never trying one of the preview releases. ;)
Finally, this isn't a bug proper, but I hope I can help someone with the same problem. If your numeric keypad stops working mysteriously, go to the "Assistive technology" preferences and disable the "Mouse keys". It was enabled magically during the upgrade and took me bit of time to figure it out.
