G'day all (apologies for any cross posting)


I thought I would write this brief email to highlight a couple of things
in regards to running the Access Grid software on Fedora 8.


*         I am currently writing a installation guide for Fedora 8
(listed on the AG website) that still requires a lot of work;


*         There are some issues with using the new "PulseAudio", in
which may cause the AG software to not work initially.


*         The current support for Fedora 8 is for i368 (Thanks Doug for
making this happen so soon);


Therefore, my advice for anyone considering upgrading to Fedora 8 would
be to wait a little longer, as there are some current issues we are
currently trying to sort out.


I have managed to install and get working the AG software on Fedora 8,
but due to running out of time, I haven't had a chance to document all
of the issues that I have already come across!  I am hoping to document
and highlight any potential issues by early next week.


I would be happy to receive any comments from those who cannot wait on
issues you had and how you over came these problems.


Thanks for your time,
