Please file bugs via Bugzilla, Product Fedora Core, Version 4, so that they are noticed and appropriately classified. Discuss this release on fedora-list.

Looking at the improvements for over core3 (http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc4/#sn-new-in-fc) I see
Improved Security â SELinux is a security architecture that protects applications and uses through finely grained security controls. The targeted policy that has been active since Fedora Core 3 has been improved to cover dozens of more daemons.
Built-in Virtualization Xen is a virtual machine that can securely run multiple operating systems in their own sandboxed domains. Xen has been integrated into Fedora Core to work in a seamless fashion.
I may not wait so long to cutover (I usually give an FC# release a few weeks before going to it)..
ping, just because...
Is Fedora recognized as Enterprise Linux by Oracle ?
It's not meant to be Enterprise-ready. The Enterprise edition is call RHEL. Fedora is more along the lines of early-adopter/development/new technology edition.
That being said, I believe the Oracle WILL run under Fedora, but I have not tried it.
I'm DL'ing it as we type!
Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg)
Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS (Pensacola)
Oracle is aware of this and it is the recommended way to get their products to run with redhat offerings. Oracle 10g will not install on RHEL4 unless you make its RH-release file look like RHEL3 or 2.
Its also going to bark at you because all your packages on FC4 will be newer than the ones oracle is looking for, you can just ignore those (so long as you have a newer on installed)..
Yea I cant wait to try out the integrated Xen, seperate out my services that run some websites I host..
Does it have the latest Nivida drivers for DVI attached LCD's?
I dont really know, Core3 works great with Nividi DVI..
Hmm, thanks for that info...
Now that's gettin' personal! :-)
