Meet Werewolf

Today I upgraded my work PC up to Fedora 8 (Werewolf). Unlike previous upgrades I tried to use yum. I run the procedure according to Upgrading Fedora Using Yum. It took about 3 – 4 hours and finished successfully. After rebooting I just install a plug-in to listen MP3
yum update alsa-plugins-pulseaudio
and patched VMWave to build vmnet on post 2.6.23 kernels. That’s it! Enjoying fast system 🙂

P. S. Another workaround. Any Java-based applications crashes with following error:
java: xcb_xlib.c:50: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.
Hack which works for me is following:
sed -i 's/XINERAMA/FAKEEXTN/g' /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/lib/i386/xawt/
