You can add the following snippet to the fedora-desktop ks file into a
init script to make sudo just work for the first user. It can't be added
to %post since firstboot wouldn't have launched then. Let me know what
# check for the first user and add it to user wheel and then to sudoers
USER=$( grep 500 /etc/passwd | cut -d: -f1 )
GROUPS=$( groups $USER )
if ! groups $USER | grep -q wheel ; then
usermod -a -G wheel $USER
sed -i 's/# %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL/ %wheel ALL=(ALL)
I am planning to make the following change to the
gnome-software-development group in comps-f11.xml.in.
+ <packagereq type="optional">glade3</packagereq>
+ <packagereq type="optional">gnome-valgrind-session</packagereq>
Any comments or objections?
Hey, just thought I should mention that we are currently landing some of
the volume control improvements in rawhide that we are working on for
F11. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/VolumeControl for more
details. After things have settled, you should notice that the mixer
applet is gone and instead a volume control icon shows up automatically
in the notification area.
Feedback appreciated, Matthias
Another F11 feature that is starting to land in rawhide:
Richard has built gnome-power-manager 2.25.1, which uses DeviceKit-power
instead of hal. This should be a largely invisible change, as far as the
user experience is concerned. Right, Richard ?
If this is not the correct place to discuss this problem, then please
accept my apologies, and kindly direct me to the correct list.
I have upgraded two of my computers from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10. The
first computer has several hard drives including SATA, ADA and an
external USB drive, the last is recognized by Fedora as a SCSI disk.
After updating this computer to F10, the boot sequence stopped while
mounting the disks. It seems that it was unable, at this point, to
recognize the UID it configured for the external disk. I commented out
the line for this disk in /etc/fstab and then successfully rebooted.
After the reboot, I removed the comment, mounet -a, and everything is
fine. The computer will not reboot without this line commented out.
A much more serious problem occurred when I upgraded a second computer.
This computer only has SCSI disks. After upgrade, the computer would not
boot, not recognizing the UID of its one and only LVM. I have not found
a solution or a workaround for this.
All my remaining computers have SCSI disks exclusively, so I am
reluctant to upgrade them.
Is this a known issue? Am I doing something wrong? This is a very
serious issue. I now have a piece of metal sitting on the floor, instead
of a web server, waiting for advice...
Has there been any thought cleaning up the screen savers?

Hi, i am using the us-international keyboard, and, when the
gnome-settings-daemon start in my sesstion, the +c = ć, but when i disabled
gnome-settings-daemon, the +c = ç, and works. How i can solve the problem in
package gnome-settings-daemon ?
at point 2.6.3 of the F10 release notes it's implied that readahead is
installed by default and should reduce boot time a bit.
I installed from the Desktop live CD and didn't have that package
installed, is that an oversight or was it on purpose? If so why?
