The information you just posted to meta is wrong for
Fedora Core 5. If
you have experience with Ubutnu and these other distros and wish
to share it, that's great, please do not remove or revert the sections
which apply to OS's you have not tested. Thanks.
Have you filed these grave bugs with broken MySQL, Java and PHP packages
with the Fedora bugtracking facilities? The instructions I provided are
OS independent. I've only verified them on 5 separate boxes and 3 OS'.
If you wish, I can install FC5 and FC6 independently on separate boxes
to validate your assertions here, but I seriously expect you're going to
In either case, I see two possible outcomes:
1. You're doing something wrong, and blaming the distribution
2. There are critical bugs in core packages shipped with Fedora
that need to be reported and fixed, ASAP.
So let's identify which one it is, and address it.
