I agree with you that some improvement is needed in this area, as broken
network services can remove the affected computer from the Internet,
i.e. no available updates, no mail, that may be a problem especially for
unexperienced users that are moving to Fedora with no close assistance
(I am thinking to a friend of mine that is living in a very small valley
on the Alps with no other Fedora user nearby). I understand that
affected machines had some stuff in the network script, in my case 3G
modem, that is not so uncommon nowadays.
My two cents...anyway tnx to all Fedora developers: Lovelock is great
Linux Fedora F15 (Lovelock) on Acer 5720
