Fedora Core 2 has arrived!

I have to say that as with all previous versions of linux that Redhat has put out, it has consistantly gotten better as time went on, and Fedora Core 2 is no exception. I installed it on two machines, one being a Dell D400 Laptop, and have had no problems… except with SambaFS or now called CIFS.

My problem was that I was trying to mount a Windows share from my new Fedora box, and I couldn’t. No matter how I set up the command. I was getting an ERROR 13 Permission Denied. I was getting frustrated…and finally I got the answer, buried under the scattered text of several message boards was it. My machine needed a kernel update. Once I updated the kernel to 2.6.6-1.374 from the stock kernel that came with FC2, mounting worked perfectly. I’m sure that that kernel will be released shortly, but if you are looking for it, I got it from the development branch on the Fedora Download Server.

I am just putting this out there in case someone else has the same problem.

Other than that, FC2 works as advertised. BTW Props go out the all the guys working thier butts off to put this thing together. Thank You.
