You had me there for a minute, tox. Your title made me think Fedora decided to skip the beta phase for F17.

Re: Fedora17 RC1 Released

Gnome-shell does not work in an old graphics card, I get only fallback in Fedora 17 beta rc

I believe all nvidia cards with 64Mb or less are blacklisted in gnome-shell.

Aha!

Installs on VirtualBox flawlessly, GNOME shell works. The system is more responsive than alpha image that I was using earlier.

Mouse roller does not seem to work. I am having to click and drag the scroll bar to scroll pages. Is anyone else having this problem? (No, I have not searched for it yet)

My card is ATI, and I installed a livecd.

you need to use:
Code:
livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr Fedora-17-Beta-x86_64-netinst.iso /dev/sdX

Re: Fedora17 RC1 Released

Now is this the next thing up from the alpha stage? Is there anything that needs to be done to go from alpha to this beta RCq1?

Just wondering because I'm running the alpha right now and can not get DVD movies to play. and am wondering if I start over if it will fix the problem.

Re: Fedora17 RC1 Released

Perhaps somene should count how many times someone asks "Is there anything that needs to be done to go from alpha to this beta..." kind of a question. I'm sure it's some kind of a record.

For the 10.000th time, no, you don't need to do anything special. Updates trough yum will get you all the way to Fedora 17 Final.

OK, OK, but will that fix all the problems along the way also?

Thx, that works.

Does anyone know if btrfs is completly kick out from fc17 installation medium?
Does it come back with the official beta or main release?
