Re: Re: A lot of FC3 trouble I see....

Originally posted by blaroe
I actually performed an upgrade fron FC2 to FC3 without a hitch. It took a bit of searching to make my NVIDIA card function flawlessly, but that was it. All in about 20 minutes additional work.

Oh man! You're lucky! I had FC2 installed before and when I picked the upgrade option during FC3 installation procedure, It failed saying that it couldn't initialize the swap partition and then rebooted the machine. I had to install FC3 from scratch and had the typical problem configuring my 9800XT for Hardware-accelerated OpenGL support (ATI drivers for FC3 are not released yet, lol).

My own problem was getting the nvidia driver installed and it proved to be a problem with the driver itself and the change to udev. Apart from this, I quite like this release compared to others.
