new to this list, and I'm hoping not to get shot down...
I've installed the f11 beta (kde version) from cd on to a T40 laptop (old
Pentium M at 1.5Ghz)... 512 Megs RAM
I have had extreme delays (like 3+ hours to install), and even 30+ minutes
to boot from CD on this system... not sure if it was a CD/DVD driver issue
In any case, the install worked after much patience,
then I did update the system with yum...
in both cases, before and after the update, I'm getting consistent kernel
panics, which I have sent back for analysis.
Also, I'm getting some weird graphics 'melt downs' over time, what happens
is 'fuzzy' / 'dirty' graphics are progressively happening mostly on
borders/title areas, and it seems to get worse over time.
Try compiling the linux kernel from vanilla sources. I've had to do that on my
X61 thinkpad to get the intel graphics driver to work right. If that works,
then the problem is just that Fedora is shipping an older kernel :)
