wtf sendmail by default !? maybe in next fedora it should be proposed postfix by default

sudo yum install postfix
sudo yum remove sendmail


remove pulse audio see why skype related http://akdwivedi.wordpress.com/2009/05/09/skype-on-64bit-fedora-10/

sudo rpm -e kde-settings-pulseaudio-4.3-12.noarch

sudo killall -9 pulseaudio

Here is how to add mp3 support in amarok

sudo yum install xine-lib-extras-freeworld

and i miss abrowser or iceweaseal packages (unbranded firefox)

I found that qmake is qmake-qt4

what i miss from ubuntu is command line not found suggestions (when you miss package bash can suggest you what to install)
