yum and yumex on fedora take care of updates etc for you, its really neat.
just open a shell right mouse click on the desktop
type su enter password then type .. yum update
there is also yumex but you will have to load it
in the shell type install yumex to easy really
you can also use yum to search for packets
yum search blah blah
Yum comes from yellow dog and yumex actually when installed will run from the top right applications no need for a shell to be open, but I am old school so I still run the shell yum
hope you have fun with fedora it used to be my fav distro, moved on to LFS now
make sure your sound card is configured correct.
alsa : has all the drivers
is the sound turned up fully alsa mix
also read the post from the swiss man he has sound issues too
you need to check in a terminal/shell if your sound card is setup correct thats the first step.
oh and btw it took me two days to get my sound to play, I enjoyed learning works fine fine fine now
i'm through my second week of do-it-yourself linux training. none of those issues had anything to do with the distro from what i can tell. each setup is different and you can't know the strengths/weaknesses in 12 hours. i hope to try a new setup someday, but i have no intention of giving up until i figure out why i had trouble. often, i really like the system after learning/understanding the differences.
as i said, CDROM is very basic thing,
i indeed can mount cdrom,
but can not mount AUDIO CD, can not play MP3,
why i need such OS?
in mandriva, no such problem,
i pop in my CD as in windows, play any songs in any format.
