Well for stability I can't fault Fedora Core 4 which I am using now.
I have been using it for 3 years about and it never seems to have a

That doesn't always break things but it should be the first thing
to suspect if you've done it and I think you did mention at least a
thunderbird and some libraries. If you have problems that others
don't, you'll probably have to get back to a stock system and see if
they are fixed.
I might try that. It has been VERY bad, what with the printer and
Email client not working it is a real bad start. Also Fedora 7
doesn't always come up right. It often comes up without any controls.
Others have this same problem.
If you are looking for more stability, you might like CentOS5 at least
for the near future. It is very, very much like FC6 at the end of its
development and it will have a long security/bugfix support life. The
downside is that it never gets 'new feature' updates within the
version life, so a year or two from now it may look fairly dated as a
Every fedora version is solid near/at the end of its life but then you
don't even get security updates.
