Re: Still no icons
To clarify, I believe may be a 3rd party application, or a feature, and
it mirrors rawhide from Red Hat. So in theory, he is using Red Hat's
rawhide. So how he got rawhide's packages isn't relavent, as long as
the packages weren't changed and are the same as if he/she got them from
No mistaking there. I know fedora (cool tool, no doubt). But as i
outlined in the other big mail i send out i ment to say that rawhide is
experimental, and your very lucky if it works. If it doesnt, we don't
know why, because rawhide is not made to work! It takes a engineering
process to combine all those rawhide packages to a working distro..
something that is more dificult and time consuming then most of us here
can or want to do.
The second point i tried to make, is that with the above in mind, this
is the wrong place to go with rawhide/fedora problems. Redhad does not
'endorse' fedora, so even though it updates to rawhide, it could do
something unexpected and lead to weird results that redhat engineers do
not know off and can not fix (nor is it their place). Secondly rawhide
has it's own mailing lists, so why ask on the phoebe list?
Third i get very pissed off that people let Bill believe that he should
/ could update to rawhide, and expect a booting & working system! People
should not just say 'update to rawhide package' without saying 'expect
to whipe your HD's and blow up everything else', or atleast the rawhide
So my not-so-friendly tone in the original email was not cause by
anything Bill said or did, but the general situation with this mailing list.
Using fedora or rawhide only creates more chatter and more un-relevant
bugs for the RH engineers to deal with, making it harder to descern real
issues and costs redhat time and money.. thus having a negative impact,
if anything, on the resulting redhat release.
Now what good does this do to anybody?!
