    I haven't had any problems with PATA devices... You might want to try booting it with all-generic-ide argument just to see if that does anything.
    Thanks, I'll try that.

      But still :/
      Actually when I was doing another Fedora 7 install this morning I got a really weird feeling.... I don't know how to describe it other than it felt "mainstream".

        I downloaded the live dvd and had no problem with it, I tried the installer dvd on 2 machines and I couldn't make it work.

        I think the thread title might fit better the test2 release next month.

          What problems had you run into with Anaconda (the installer)?

            I tried with 2 computers and on both of them I goes until it asks for the language, I chose US English which is the default and then it doesn't see the dvd rom anymore and ask me to install a driver. I'm not the only one with that problem, seems like there is a lot of people with that same problem.

              Yeah, I ran into the problem but fixed it by using a USB DVD drive.

                nouveau project and fedora

                Yeah! an excitement indeed

                I was wondering. Does anyone know if there are any fedora developers actively participating to the nouveau project? Having working nouveau drivers in Fedora 7 will be really impressive.

                The livecd boots slowly. Nevertheless, after boot it looks like a finished product. Good state!

                Not having development tools in the Desktop flavour is a little bit annoying. It might be better to have an option during installation. Of course you can install them later via yum, but it would be nice to have the packages around in case internet connection is not available.

                  No Fedora developers are involved with Nouveau directly. It sounds like Nouveau won't be enabled by default in Fedora 7 but we shall see.
