Wondering which distro is giving people the least frustrations. I
considered doing KoppMyth, but is this something I can easily change/
add to when required?
Some background as to why I'm giving up on Fedora:
I was running FC4 for a long time with no problem until one day LVM
decided to trash my superblocks - yes, EVERY superblock on my disk.
All that work is now gone. So I tried FC5 on a new disk. Ran into
dependencies that couldn't be resolved. bind conflicted with some
other package and kept trying to re-download the 600MB of packages
every time I tried. After the 4th time of adding/removing packages to
solve dependencies, I gave up. Then I couldn't get nvidia driver to
load. No idea why. I was too frustrated to find out. So I go back to
FC4 and haven't been able to get yum upgrade to finish after 2.5 days
of trying. 403's, 404's, parser errors. Forget it. It's not worth it.
