Fedora as a distro doesn't have nothing to do with such complains as they happen due a lack of proper driver implementation as some companies still refuses to support linux or because a software component is not working properly. In both cases Fedora doesn't directly develop the drivers or the components that doesn't work and you should get your complain to the upstream projects so they can fix it sometime or fill a bug report to Fedora so they can report upstream and apply patches as the come in.
WH: Huh? proprietary stuff?? No idea what you are talking about unless you mean the hardware.

WH: I'm running RHEL which is more stable. But I like to do other work on Fedora and was hoping Fedora 10 was more stable. I realize there are a lot of different hardware platforms out there and it is difficult to support. I'm a bit surpprised because there are so many Lenova T6x around I thought that it would have been tested more and there more stable.
TBW this seemed to get worse the last few weeks so I wonder if some of my updates made the issue much more frequent.

This seems to be working OK now without any mixer tweaking on the F11
Beta Snapshot. Can anyone else confirm? I don't think there was bug
report about it.
Since you've seen this problem since Fedora 8, I can assume that you've had
this laptop for a while.
I work in IT for a major college, and we see issues like this on a number of
laptops with the track nub mouse, both on Windows XP and Fedora*. Cleaning
out the nub mouse usually helps the situation, but I don't believe it to be
a software issue as it spans two OSs.

Since about Fedora 8, and definitely in Fedora 9 and 10, there has been a problem
with the window manager on Dell Latitude laptops with two mouse inputs (touch
pad and joystick-style). Occasionally, it will do very strange things when you
use the joystick-style mouse (the touchpad works perfectly though) ... maximize
windows while you're moving them, double-click files you're trying to move,
leave selections on the desktop that can't be removed via a refresh, and once
in a while, it will actually lock X up hard, requiring the old
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. This behavior may be more common when using the joystick
Mouse with the touchpad's buttons, but I'm not sure.
Sorry if this is a dupe, I didn't know exactly what to search for. And like I
said, it's been there a while, though I realize that a laptop with two built-in
mouse interfaces is somewhat uncommon...
Also submitted as Bugzilla bug #488836, with no acknowledgement in 6 weeks...
I have some Dell Latitude D630s running Fedora 10, and I'm trying to use Netgear FA511 and/or D-Link DFE-690TX PCMCIA ethernet cards
on them. However, with both cards, it is unable to read the EEPROM (it states this in dmesg). For the Netgear FA511 cards, this
results in an interface that does not send/receive packets (not even in tcpdump on the local machine), and the interface has the
well-known "tulip driver can't read the EEPROM" MAC address of 00:4C:69:6E:75:79 ("Linux" in Hex). For the D-Link cards, the
behavior is not quite the same, but at any rate, it doesn't appear to be able to read the EEPROM either (all 0's MAC address, when I
was able to get the interface to come up).
The same cards work fine with the same OS (Fedora 10) on other Dell laptops (Latitude D600 and D800s, which have a different CardBus
controller). Additionally, the card works fine in the same exact machine if I install the Fedora 11 alpha, or if I boot from an
Ubuntu live CD (running a very similarly-versioned kernel). I've tried updating the BIOS and the OS, to no avail. It seems like this
is an issue that's already been fixed, but the fix hasn't been backported to Fedora 10 yet.
This was submitted to bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=488833 but I have received no response yet. See that
site for further debug output, etc.
I'm excited to hear that F11 is working on having UEFI boot and I can't wait
for the 9th to test out the features since my insyde had uefi. One annoying
thing about my laptop is that it has a bluetooth module built in, but it's
powered off by default and the only way to activate it is through the fn+F8
ACPI command. Are there any commands to expand the ACPI command api? The
bluetooth is the most important to me, but I'd also like to get dis/enable
touchpad (fn+F9) and the zoom keys like fn+1 and fn+2 and fn+space.
P.S. This is my first mailing list post, so please forgive me if I'm not
suppost to bring this up here.

GCC already has Fortran77 compiler included in it. Its called g77

I just installed the ati graphics driver on my fedora distro. I went and restarted my computer and now I get no screen when I boot up. I see the fedora screen and then when it goes to the login portion, it disappears. Any sugesstions?
Im running an ATI HD 2400 graphics card and an up to date system.
