Yesterday I installed fedora core. I have now WinXP,linux mandrake 10,Freebsd and Fedora Core 2 on one computer.

Installation was nice, it only messed with mine bootloader. WinXp is on the first partition and Mandrake on the second. FreeBSD and Fedora core 2 are on a second hard disk. It had allready Grub installed.Also I think the installer didn't look at the old installation. It noticed that there was WinXP on the firsts, but didn't look for an OS at the other paritions... I dunno.

FC2 is very nice, some of the system configuration tools are a little bit less than that of Mandrake. I don't like the software installer. It only list everything in Categories and not sorted by name. Because of this it is diffecult to find the right package.

Up2date is nice, but I had some problems. When cannected to a slow sever, it takes ages to download and the dependence check takes ages. Yum is fine, verry nice. While searching for a gui frontend, I discovered Synaptic. It can use the apt repositories. Works flawless, much better as the software installer delivered with FC2.

I also tried to compile The elaya compile, this went fine as expected.
