Default FC15 beta testing result by my 76-year old uncle

Hi all,

I've setup FC15 beta for* my 76-year old uncle. The major issues encountered:
* wake up from suspend didn't work on his laptop; on another one does
* logitech quickcam express doesn't work -- light goes on in Cheese/skype, but not image


Overall, it was pretty ok. Here's my uncle talking with a friend of his:

He finds very helpful l10n and Chrome translate of english content.


Happy Easter
Marius

I thought my suspend was broken on this laptop. But it turned out it is
hit by a bug where the driver (nouveau) tries to reload firmwire in its
resume code while userspace is still frozen. That fails, but only after
sitting there looking dead for 60s. After the timeout, it resumes
great. So it might be worth trying.

I don't know about it specifically, but when I use my USB microscope I
use Camorama. Notice though it has no UI to select device, you have to
give a switch --device=/dev/video1 on commandline if it's not the first
video device. It also might be worth a try.

Hi Andy



Cheese/skype, but not image



* logitech quickcam express doesn't work -- light goes on in

I don't know about it specifically, but when I use my USB microscope I use Camorama. *Notice though it has no UI to select device, you have to give a switch --device=/dev/video1 on commandline if it's not the first video device. *It also might be worth a try.
