Fedora 19

Post date: Aug 6, 2013 8:58:03 AM

Upgraded PC from a perfectly-working Fedora 17. Never touch a system that works well. Your mileage may vary.

What I got

gcc 4.8

What I lost

wake on lan no longer works

hours bc. the kernel was not upgraded 17 -> 19 at first

hours to make the nvidia installer work & dracut it *

CRT forcibly the primary monitor in twinview (at least until mate starts) *

gnome 3 is like unity: slow, ugly & newbie-oriented.

menus got stuck in gnome classic *

firefox crashed on print preview dialog *

latest kernels require patching nvidia's drivers *

had to install and tweak the mate environment

matlab's cwd dropdown menus slightly unusable

gvfs smb randomly hangs

gvfs smb has a new wine-incompatible naming scheme

* - possibly nvidia-related
