I have VMware 1.0.8 on F10 (Intel, 32-bit) and Gnome Desktop.
Starting VMware and booting a WinXP image, when left-clicking inside the
VMware window to transfer the keyboard and mouse to the
VM running (or ^G or grab input from the menu) resets the desktop and X
server and I get a login screen.
Has anyone seen this? How do I go about debugging this issue.l
PS. VMware 1.0.8 and the same image behaves fine on RHEL 5 and Ubuntu

I had been trying to play with btrfs on rawhide some time back for
same functionality. At that moment (0.17) or even now
btrfs-progs(0.18-3) was bit unstable to work on.
Will give it a try to port the app and work on nautilus patch to
integrate this functionality.
Opensolaris time slide integrates filesystem snapshots in a pretty neat
way with Nautilus. Is anyone from the desktop team looking into
writing/porting it based on btrfs?
Essentially, there is a nautilus extension in Python that can be easily
ported and a patch for adding a time slider and restore button. A stand
alone app takes care of setting some preferences.
today there was an update to firefox, firefox-3.0.6-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm.
Now, when I try to run it, it just exits without any message.
How can I get back a working firefox? The mirrors no longer carry the older
version. I tried to install the original version,
but it would list a ton of i386 (not x86_64) packages as dependencies.
sorry for cross-posting but I wanted all interested parties to not miss
this email ;-)
There has been some media related discussion in the -devel list and one
of the points I have taken form it is that we should promote FLOSS
multimedia and don't blame others for doing it (even if it's done in a
not ideal way)... Now, the problem is that the actual support of these
in our system is crappy. Out of the combinations of two FLOSS containers
(matroska and ogg) and two FLOSS video codecs (dirac and theora) I know
only one (ogg + theora) actually works in xine-lib (used by KDE4) which
So I created a wiki page (not sure what name space to use, so I put it
under my user page for starters)  which tracks the situation. I don't
have much time lately due to university duties, so I put there only
things I know of and didn't researched further. So if you know of any
FLOSS container, video or audio codec, feel free to add it there. Also
feel free to reference upstream bugs about the mentioned issues. The
videos used for reference testing are available at my fedora people page
