Upgrading to Fedora 11

Well, it’s again the time of the year, when we’ll all upgrade our Fedoras. Again, I’d recommend not to, unless you don’t have to worry about the following issues:

  • ATI Radeon drivers wouldn’t work. There’s no support yet for the kernel 2.6.29/2.6.30 used in Fedora 11.
  • Firefox 3.5 is in beta stage and the following add-ons don’t work yet: Google Gears, Google Notebook, Html Validator, Mouse Gestures Redox.
  • Thunderbird 3.0 is in beta stage and some of the add-ons don’t work yet.

I’ll keep this post updated, when the situation changes.

Edit: Mouse Gestures Redox need to be changed to Firefox 3.5 compatible FireGestures.
Edit: Added Google Notebook and Html Validator, usable add-ons both.
Edit: Added Thunderbird note.
Edit: Google Notebook is discontinued.
Edit: ATI drivers became available when Ubuntu 9.10 was released with 2.6.30 kernel.
