fedora 15 sucks

I have been using fedora 15 for the last few months, but am unable to get my BSNL 3G to work. Why can't these clowns at redhat get their act together? My daughter had no problem with Fedora 14.

Do you realize that Fedora is primarily as a community project developed by volunteers and majority of contributors contribute their time and effort freely? Perhaps you should get involved instead of just whining

no, I do not realise that. AFAIK the core developers are all paid by redhat. And if you check the record, I have always been an ardent and vocal fan of both fedora and redhat - and hence have every right to whine.

I don't know that core developers mean? In Fedora, the majority of packages are maintained by volunteers. Red Hat sponsors the infrastructure and a few infrastructure maintainers full time and a few others like the kernel maintainers. It is primarily a volunteer community.

core developer is one who has full commit rights to the repo - although from your comments so far it is doubtful that you know what that means. Go to the fedora site, check who are the core developers and see who employs them. Convince me - I am always willing to change my views. If you cannot do this, go piss on someone else's blog.

Dude. Majority of people who have commit access to the repo are volunteers. Ask anyone who works on the Fedora Project and they can confirm you this. The stats last time I checked are that nearly 70% of package maintainers with commit access are volunteers.

could you give the source for your claims?

btw, only one member of fesco does not work for Redhat.

There is a ton of sources. Here is just one.

"Around 65% of Fedora's code is maintained by volunteers"

https://www.redhat.com/Fedora/

FESCo is a *fully* elected body. A democratic body doesn't need to discriminate against community members of a project regardless of which company they work for. If majority of voted for Red Hat members, they would get elected. If majority votes for IBM members, they would get elected instead. You are free to stand up for the election as long as you are a Fedora contributor maintaining atleast one software component. Simple as that.

not code - packages. In fact you will find that 65% of the packages of *any* linux distro is maintained by volunteers. It will probably surprise you to know that even the linux kernel is maintained by volunteers.

A distribution is all about packages. Code is maintained upstream and not within Fedora and % of code maintained by Red Hat is less than 10% of what Fedora includes. Fedora typically doesn't change code much from upstream and has a policy of staying close to upstream as much as possible. So if you are arguing about code, your claim is actually much much weaker. Btw, Linux kernel has a very high % of commercial vendors involved actually.

why didn't you post my comments answering you?

livejournal automatically screens anonymous posts - so your reply was pending. Why are you afraid of putting your name?

If you don't people to have the right to remain anonymous then disable that option in livejournal. Why are you afraid to disable the comment screening?

done (actually I never set this). Now are you going to come out of the closet?

What closet? My name is Evan Andrews and I am a Linux consultant. What does that tell you? Nothing. Focus on the subject and not on the person

try to delete the connection

I didn't work for my 3g connection either. I tried to enable it using wvdial and it worked but pidgin was still expecting for the network manager notification.Then I tried to delete the connection and add it again. Now it's functional

Re: try to delete the connection

did not help - I met a lot of redhat guys in Pune - the consensus was that gnome networking is b0rked and I was strongly advised to downgrade to fedora 14. (none of them use fedora 15)

I think it is the time of downfall of Dekstop Distro's(again!?).
I was thinking about switching from Mandriva 2010 to Fedora, now I have kept the move on hold.

testing if kenneth has enabled the posts without mederation :-)

He passed away
