One feature I like see in Fedora and in Linux in general is a driver-roll-back.


For example, choosing a new Video Driver hoping to solve 3D acceleration problems can make system suddenly unusable. This might be the basis for future development but it will be a great feature. I know you can remove previously installed program with yum. Thanks.

Hi, welcome to LQ forums.

Your suggestion should be dirrected to Fedora bugzilla, and they could pass it higher up.

Not quite. He wants driver rollbacks, like on Windows. I use third party repositories for my video drivers, with kmod kernel modules, and all I have to do to revert to older driver is to issue "yum downgrade kmod-nvidia" and I am done. Since I never done sutch a thing, I believe there would not be any need for any ofter commands.
