Fedora 18 Spherical Cow review - Bad bad bad

Filed under
Linux

As you recall, a revolution happened last spring. Fedora 17, when blessed with the Cinnamon desktop, was superb. In fact, it earned a nice little place in the top charts for 2012. Encouraged by the very positive trend shown in the last release, I decided to see how well Fedora 18 would behave.

Live session - Buggy

The testing started on a left foot, after it was lost in a train accident. The thing is, Fedora would not auto-login. Spherical Cow only got to that login screen and waited. I tried using fedora, live, user, and several other generic account names, without success. Only root worked. Reading online, there's a bug noted, from September 2012, that this might happen in the live session. What you should do is select a certain user and proceed. The thing is, the bugzilla entry plus the explanation are written for Gnome, hence this does not work on KDE, hence this is bollocks, and I was tempted to quit at this stage. But I decided to try using the distro with the root account login.

On my first attempt, there were three warning and error messages coming up during the session.
