    Phoronix: Fedora 28 Beta To Be Released Next Week

    Last week Fedora 28's beta was delayed due to open blocker bugs but fortunately the developers managed to get the issues squared away...

        I will take the first distro that runs reliably on Ryzen Mobile! I thought Ubunutu was almost there but im still seeing Keyboard lock ups and an inability to recover from sleep. The two issues might be related - who knows.

        Fedora though seems to be off in snother world, it really doesnt seem to be supporting new hardware as well as Ubuntu.

          I am waiting for the Ryzen 2700 or 2700x releases with compatible motherboards. I am not after a toaster, but a cpu that runs at 45-50°C under normal load.
          I am not a gamer, and all I want is a 4k resolution video card that is open-source supported.
          I am also not keen to overpay for DDR4 memory.
          Overpriced gpus and overpriced ddr4 memory may be the reason that replacement desktop computers are not selling. Its a reason I am holding back on my upgrade.

            Why? Is there something specific in F28 that is likely to cause problems for people?

            I did a netinstall in a VM a few weeks ago with MATE desktop and it is running great.
            Given that MATE 1.20 hasn't been packaged for Fedora 27, I can't wait to install F28 on my main system.

            Fedora haven't realised a seriously broken version since the early days of pulseaudio, systemd, and their anaconda rewrite (that was the worst!). Last few years have been quite good IMO.

              Memory is Cheap IMO, its VideoCards that are Expensive.

                its just my opinion. what are the real benefits of jumping from F27 to F28? i dont really see any.. Mate 1.19 that was in F27 was actuallty an unfinished Mate 1.20

                  While I am a Ubuntu on R5 1600 user, if I was building a Ryzen APU based system or planning on using an AMD GPU, I would probably reach for Open Suse:

                  https://en.opensuse.org/Sponsors#Pla...rs_of_openSUSE

                  In fact, I would go as far as to say that if you have an AMD based system and you can't get it to run reliably with Open Suse then you probably are not going to get it to run reliably with ANY Linux distro.

                    "Last time" implies a first time. And I'm pretty sure Anvil's right... I've been using Fedora pretty much since the beginning, and I don't think they've ever actually hit a scheduled date.

                    Not that that really matters, of course... if the bi-annual release is a week or two late, it's not the end of the world. But it's been consistent enough to be a running joke after so many years...
