So far I am not enjoying it...sorry I know there is another thread on this.
Some problems i have:
the desktop does not fit on my screen...on a 1024x768 resolution the screen is stretched too far to the right and goes off the monitor. Will installing my video card drivers solve this?
there are no kde or xfce themes? whats the deal with this? Why would you have the desktop environments without themes? So those desktop environments aren't working properly currently. I also forgot to add, no icons on the desktop either, except for the trash icon. Is it supposed to be that way?
I cannot hear the test sounds for the sound card setup and sounds do not always work in the OS for me...I have an internal intel soundcard btw
the number one problem for me is that my wireless router does not work in FC3. I consider this a big problem, since it worked fine in Redhat 9.
Heres the steps I took to install my Linksys WMP54G wireless router using ndiswrapper
$ tar -zxvf ndiswrapper.tar.gz <--to extract to ndiswrapper-0.7 folder
$ cd ndiswrapper-0.7
$ make install
$ modprobe ndiswrapper
$ ndiswrapper -i /home/jerry/Downloads/wmp54g/Drivers/bcmwl5.inf
$ ndiswrapper -l <--to see the installed drivers...results from that:
$ ndiswrapper -m <--this adds wlan0 to /etc/modules.conf and will start at boot
**In Redhat9 I used to go into modules.conf and type ndiswrapper if_name=eth%d because the internet configuration gui does not show wlan, only eth...this is not necessary in FC3
I then proceed to reboot the computer...just to make sure, I reopen the terminal and type
$ modprobe ndiswrapper <--just to make sure it is loaded
I then go into system tools(?) and go to the internet configuration wizard, choose wireless network(?) and follow the instructions. You will see wlan0(ndiswrapper) as an option, you select that and click next...then procede to enter whatever other options you would like.
This is EXACTLY how I did it in Redhat9 and it worked perfectly...however, in FC3 once I go to activate wlan0 it tells me 'unable to determine IP, check link?' I am not sure what the deal is with that...but if anyone can offer advice I'm listening. I will probably search the wireless networking forum to see if I can find anything.
So far my biggest problems are the screen size and router problem...at the moment I am kind of wishing I had stayed with Redhat9. I could've upgraded to FC2 but purposely waited til FC3 was out because I wanted the latest OS. I don't wanna regret the update, and the usage of 4 CD-R's.
