Fedora 17 Miracle Beefy

Miracle Beefy has been very elusive on my computer, normally start testing every version of Fedora a month before the release, this time was more complicated not sure why. First installed in the old Toshiba Satellite M35XS329 using pre-upgrade when well, all do present some issues with the wireless network card, the module did not load properly, I had to manually remove it and loaded again to make it work. Several updates from the kernel solve the issue. But that was on alfa. Then try to do pre-upgrade on the HP Probook 6550b and fail, every time it finish all the pre upgrade process but did after reboot it did not work, so after try it on Alfa and Beta, decide to download the Beta DVD and update from it, all updated was complete and working fine. One issue with Eclipse  do not allow it to load seems like it is trying to run using Java 1.6 that is not present on Miracle Beefy as it works with Java 1.7

java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86_64, WS=gtk, NL=en_US
Command-line arguments:  -os linux -ws gtk -arch x86_64

!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2012-05-26 10:25:41.429
!MESSAGE Application error
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: javax/inject/Singleton : Unsupported maj
or.minor version 51.0

There is a bug report for this but it is close to be open close to release day so hope someone has solve the issue.

For everything else working great on Fedora 17.

Congrats to all that make this new release possible.
