In addition, the vfat filesystem apparently can't handle files of >=4.2GB; luckily I only have 4 of those (one 6.5GB and the others 8-9GB each), so I was zipping them to then split them into 4GB chunks (resulting in 8 pieces). While copying those, the transfer-rate was at only 3MB/s ^.°
That took like... 6h more than expected o.O
Then moved them on the external drive .... and finally! Let's install Fedora!
I liked Anaconda and at 2AM I got my first view of a new desktop:
After sleeping and setting stuff up, I broke Goggles Music Manager:
I got those -2 songs in the queue resolved, but it would only play one song and then stop.
So I installed Rhythmbox.
Oh, and I wanted to show my new, fancy, self-made wallpaper:
Now about Fedora so far:
yum seems a little slower in searching packages than apt-cache or aptitude, but just as imprecise. Another down is that the package-names are a little inconsistent. Bash-autocompletion for the packages also reacts slower and only works for the first package.
In Ubuntu all libraries were prefixed with lib, while in Fedora some are and some not.
I like yums output a little more than apt-gets though. Generally still a plus for Ubuntus apt-get, unless I somehow configured it wrongly.
Fedoras integration of LXDE works better out-of-the-box than the lubuntu-meta-package of Ubuntu.
Again, on the other hand I'm having some problems with the Flash plugin. It mostly, but not completely, works now; I have hope in the lightspark-project though.
Am I glad to have switched? Well, at least glad that I wiped my old system; If I am glad about the new one will show in time.
I feel a little better about Fedora, but probably just because I've set it up properly, unlike my previous system.
