              well for Ham applications and straight out of the box stuff working Debian works great.
              I have been working with Redhat,Rhel, suse for about 8 years professionally and debian for about 4 and other distoros for security purposes.
              I can tell you that making the switch to debian for Ham is going to work better for you. Actually some folks prefer ubuntu for friendliness for beginners.
              My honest opinion.
              I would be interested in what other hams thought about it?

              If yo do decide and need some help please post.

                Hang in there, Rich. Keep asking questions and searching the Web. Even
                though I started playing with Linux almost 15 years ago, there is still
                much to learn. Do understand that some issues are distribution specific
                which can be maddening in its own right. Then there is Slackware which
                does almost nothing to upstream packages which can be its own cause for
                fun. :-)

                One of the bits of advice that served me well the first years was to
                keep a journal of what I did to the system configuration. It helped a
                lot those years so I could go back and recall what I did to solve some
                issue. I should have probably continued but I'm naturally lazy and
                depend on my aging memory to get me by!

                  However I've made a test install of Fedora 15 and I can't seem to
                  get anything to work, can't figure out how to get the networking up,
                  for a starter. In fact it doesn't like my video hardware that has
                  always worked fine in the past. So I may have to jump ship. But
                  then I've heard bad things about the latest Ubuntu release; and
                  the previous release was one I couldn't get to work with the video
                  hardware I was using at that time.

                  Sorry, this is off-topic for the group, but it's going to be a while
                  before I have time to come to grips with Fedora 15.

                    I used Fedora for many, many years and was always happy with it although most of the flavors are not efficient.  I switched to Ubuntu on the advice of other users and the encouragement from the linux radio community.  I am not uncomfortable with either and it is my opinion that both are comparable.  The only concern for us radio folks is that Ubuntu seems to be the most common environment for us.  So, for that reason, I would encourage you to move.  If you are using a multiboot loader you can run both.

                      Fedora is the more "beta" release of RHEL which is more a of an enterprise linux
                      Likewise is ubuntu to debian.

                          I've been using Fedora for a long time, and in general, whether
                          it is the system or whether it is just me, I get along with it a
                          lot better than I do with Ubuntu.

                          However I've made a test install of Fedora 15 and I can't seem to
                          get anything to work, can't figure out how to get the networking up,
                          for a starter. In fact it doesn't like my video hardware that has
                          always worked fine in the past. So I may have to jump ship. But
                          then I've heard bad things about the latest Ubuntu release; and
                          the previous release was one I couldn't get to work with the video
                          hardware I was using at that time.

                          Sorry, this is off-topic for the group, but it's going to be a while
                          before I have time to come to grips with Fedora 15.

                            Fedora is the testing ground for Red Hat Linux. In being so, it is common for things to break and not work as it did in previous versions just as the latest

                              Fedora is the "testing ground" for Red Hat Linux. In being so, it is
                              common for things to break and not work as it did in previous versions
                              just as the latest version of Ubuntu is 11.04.

                              I use Ubuntu myself. One recommendation on Ubuntu though - stick with
                              the LTS (long term support) version. Currently it is 10.04. The security
                              and general updates are supported for 3-5 years depending if you are
                              using desktop or server versions.

                              They may not have the most up to date software but you can manually
                              update yourself if need be. The big advantage is that it appears to be
                              one of the most stable distributions I have tried (it is built on
                              Debian - do a search for the most stable linux distro and you will find
                              Debian, RedHat and Slackware at the top of the list - everything else
                              listed is pretty much a spin off of those.). And trust me, I have
                              tried dozens and continue to try new ones regularly.

                              Debian appears to be one of the most ham friendly distros and hence
                              Ubuntu is as well.

                              Again - I recommend going with the LTS version 10.04.

                              FYI - I have been using Linux for about 10-12 years.

                                  I really like Fedora 15 or just Fedora in general. There has been or seems to have more well written than Fedora 14. I like the layout and the display is much better. However I cannot say much about my knowledge of Linux;it is very well lacking of zero....I am trying to start a local group here in Oregon so there can be knowledge shared.

                                  This bug got fixed in fldigi-3.21.11-2.fc15 which is
                                  available in updates-testing:

                                  I hope the fixed fldigi will get pushed to updates soon.
