Fedora 18 Beta - working/not working

Most things in the installation is working.
But one thing that is not working are all of the desktop alternatives.

  • GNOME Desktop works.
  • KDE Plasma Workspaces works.
  • Xfce Desktop does not work properly, there is no application menu and an error message when trying to view it.
  • LXDE Desktop I have not tested.
  • Cinnamon Desktop does not start properly, X is crashing/restarting on login.
  • MATE Desktop not starting properly.

If you want to use the beta and upgrade packages when the real version is released, know that the beta has the updates-testing repository enabled. If you have this enabled and do an update of all packages, you will have to do some yum downgrade command to fix it afterwards.
