    When all else fails, read the bloody feature notes!

      "AMD Geode LX (as used in the OLPC XO laptop) and later Geode NX processors should still work."

      The word "should" is not the same as the word "will".

          Well I agree. Fedora 13's entire changelog should read

            "i686" usually means "SSE2" and geode does not support programs compiled with SSE2.
            I'm not sure why you think that. i686 is the Pentium Pro architecture, which just included MMX, not even the original SSE. And isn't the whole point of this news that Fedora used to install a 586 kernel everywhere before, and it will now be changed to a 686 one?

              Should be sufficient to just say "Fedora will keep upgrading every damn component to bleeding edge ones", really.

                Looks like a nice boring update. Glad they finally decided to keep it sane. Have to test this some.

                    Bingo. Your point about an ugly theme is in amongst itself pointless because anyone with half a life is going to personalize.

                      meh, redhat can make whatever changes they want but it will never be as powerful as slackware or gentoo.
