in the meantime, take a look at these extensive spins of Fedora 11 Preview,

 

has anyone tried the Live Game Spin ??

 

F11-Preview-i686-Live-Games.torrent The Fedora Games spin offers a perfect show-case of the best games available in Fedora 11. 3.9G 2009-04-28

Posting this from it now Anyweb.

 

Had the blank screen issue as I own an Nvidia card, passing 'nouveau.modeset=1' to the kernel fixed it all for me. PulseAudio defaulted my creative sound blaster to digital, took me a while to find the correct volume control to change it. Now its perfect, running very well, I can honestly say its far more responsive than Fedora 10 was. Installed to my Hard drive and now my main OS.

nice screenshot, which spin are you using there and did you config the dock yourself ?

I actually just used the standard Fedora Live x86_64 Gnome Preview image, I had wanted to try F11-Preview-x86_64-Live-Games but the blank screen issue forced me to grab a standard image to make sure it was a problem with Fedora 11's new nouveau driver.

 

The dock is Gnome-do and its Docky theme. Now part of fedora 11, just a simple 'yum install gnome-do' away. Select the docky theme from gnome-do settings. (Requires Compiz)

 

I will be giving the F11-Preview-x86_64-Live-XFCE image a spin on the kids Acer Aspire one, she is a big fan of Fedora 10. I will probably wait for a final version first though, been a lot of updates over the last week.

Its in the RPM Fusion repo.

 

Install RPM Fusion,

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'

 

Then install cairo-dock

Your missing the public keys, it should sort that for you but I think it could be an issue with Fedora 11 being stuck in limbo between Rawhide and official 11 release. Try,

 

su -c "rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*"

 

Then try install the dock with the command.

 

su -c "yum install cairo-dock"<!--c2--></div><!--ec2-->

 

@ Anyweb, wow your 10 year old kid getting on with Fedora. I'm impressed.

su -c "rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*"

I just noticed a post about this over at Fedora forums. Seems to be an issue but I'm not sure why. Everything is working for me.

 

Can you tell me what the following command shows;

 

# yum repolist

 

Mine looks like this:

 

yum repolist
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
repo id                                      repo name                                                       status

fusion                                       Compiz Fusion repository                                        enabled:     42
livna                                        rpm.livna.org for 11 - x86_64                                   enabled:      3
rpmfusion-free                               RPM Fusion for Fedora 11 - Free                                 enabled:    517
rpmfusion-free-updates                       RPM Fusion for Fedora 11 - Free - Updates                       enabled:      0
rpmfusion-nonfree                            RPM Fusion for Fedora 11 - Nonfree                              enabled:    196
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates                    RPM Fusion for Fedora 11 - Nonfree - Updates                    enabled:      0
updates                                      Fedora 11 - x86_64 - Updates                                    enabled:  1,519
repolist: 18,854

 

Also, try to force a yum update with the following commands;

 

# yum clean all

 

and;

 

# yum --nogpgcheck update

 

I'm saying force the update because I don't remember having to do any fixes to get things working here but do remember having to force an update.

Strange, I guess it must be an issue with RPMFusion. You will simply have to install and ignore the checks until we either figure out what's wrong, or things get fixed.

 

# su -c "yum install --nogpgcheck cairo-dock"
