    Don't start again. We had that already. bugmenot will not use Flash ever.

    People who don't want a Flash plugin installed and are on Firefox might want to try the "DownloadHelper" add-on for Firefox. It should be able to fetch the *.mp4 file of the video.

    Fedora was the first distro to ever provide KMS (it was in F10 as experimental) and it's in F11 and it will definitely be in F12 (F12 will also likely be the first to have r6xx/r7xx kms support). So to sumup Fedora is the easiest way to test KMS

    http://tinyvid.tv

    Or tell us with a comment here that we are allowed to upload (read: to convert it from youtube to there, see http://tinyvid.tv/convert to there) it there.

    Thanks

    Because of the bootmedia. I prefer booting from USB - hybrid or converted to syslinux (for beginners maybe using unetbootin) or network boot. 2 min is extreme... when you installed once from USB/network then you know that you only use a cd/dvd if you can not boot it in another way. Not sure if you could gain a few seconds using aufs, the new U kernels do not have got aufs or unionfs, but the live image is using unionfs-fuse. Compared to Kanotix is definitely lools slow Old pcs can try PLoP Boot Manager, thats needed for one via based s775 oem board - it did not work with s775 intel or nforce3 boards. 45s from USB or 100mbit network is no problem.

    There is also no kernel mode-setting at this time for the ATI Radeon R600/700 (HD 2000 series and later) hardware.
    So how is KMS support on those chips coming along? Can we expect to see some fruit in the over-next round of distros?
