Here we go ....
* Multiple monitor support is not working any better (meaning not
working) than in F8. I cannot get the definitions to stick - and the
smallest monitor seems to win.
* Wireless - mainly firmware - is unstable at best. The last update
rendered the Intel Wireless useless on my system. Using wireless it
looses connectivity about every 5 or so minutes and causes TCP resets
all over. In other words, it's hard to rely on.
* SELinux policies (and yes I made sure it's using the latest policies)
seems to to have problems with .pid files and the /tmp file system. I
get quite a few alerts and standard things like dhcp clients would not
work properly until I "tweaked" it (it wouldn't really start - had to
kill all network and restart to just get a hardware active DHCP
* Remote Desktop (tsclient) doesn't support copy/paste or even
ctrl-alt-del. Doing admin on windoze from your tsclient is tough without
* I have a laptop - there is a docking station. To manage sound, I have
to have two controls on my task bar - one for the sound on the docking
station one for the laptop. They are two different sound channels but it
cannot manage a master volume setting??
* Segfaults - I get 2-3 messages a day that a program (which one is
unclear - it looks like NetworkManager) has segfaulted and the "kernel
fault" has been reported to the fedora team. Segfault isn't a kernel
* Network Manager can create additional profiles - but when it starts up
it uses the system default one. I need to use it's own profile and it
doesn't seem to want to?
* Evolution is ... how can put this ... giving me a headache ;) It
crashes pretty often and spends too long doing "filter jobs" and even
closing. Work requires use of exchange server - Evolution seems to have
that support but it's fluffy. Still trying to make it really work. If I
can't make that work, I'll have to run my mail on windows and that will
most likely cause me to switch primary desktop to Windows.
* Clicking - the mouse control is getting strange. I loose the ability
to click on items at time. At times the keyboard will even stop working
- I've had to hard-reset to fix it. Something I've NEVER done to Linux
before. Worst case alt-ctrl-backspace would always save me from a
reboot. But lately I loose mouse / keyboard control totally. I cannot
figure out what's causing it - nothing really in the X11 logfiles that
* Upgrade to F9 was a nightmare. It simply doesn't work. Had to manually
go a "yum reinstall" most packages and groups to get a semi working
system back. The SELINUX issues may stem from that, but all SELinux
packages have been reinstalled.
That's what I can think of right now. I've had a lot of other issues
I've simply had to resolve and spend time on, and it's partly that
frustration that I'm battling here.

Why not throw out your issues on the mailing list, and we can all have a
chance to chew on them before Saturday's meeting. I won't be at the
meeting (Boy Scout camp), but I'm happy to help out via the mailing list
or even IRC.
