It looks like FC2 is going to have a development snapshot of Epiphany,
version 1.1.12. Just curious, since the corresponding stable version
(1.2.x) was released before GNOME 2.6, why is FC2 not including the
appropriate stable version of Epiphany.
Thanks in advance.....Paul
It looks like there is a problem with firstboot/Xorg. I have a Sony E200
monitor which is DCC compliant (I think), but after firstboot I'm only
able to set it to 640x480 or 800x600 - Not 1280x1024..
In /etc/X11/xorg.conf the following lines where remarked out:
HorizSync 30.0 - 85.0
VertRefresh 48.0 - 120.0
After enabling them again, I was able to get 1280x1024.
Is this a bug?

It would be nice if yum indicated somehow during the
downloading/installation process, which repository the package
comes from (e.g. Fedora Core 1 - Base).
Using different repos like Base, updates, fedora.us extras... one could
see the origin of the package.

New users should never have to use apt imho;) There should be a
GUI for this sort of thing, where it's perhaps a bit easier/cleaner
to display status info.
I have two 'nc's with FC1 and FC2t3. Here's the rpm output:
[pts/1:mr700@fedora:~]# rpm -qf /usr/X11R6/bin/nc /usr/bin/nc
This is a problem, at least for me. It was very surprising to type
'nc host port' and see:
No servers available, start one (yes)?
Maybe /usr/bin/nc should be renamed to netcat or /usr/X11R6/bin/nc
should be renamed to neditc?

I've noticed that, with Fedora Core 2 test 2, I get an error at each
Initializing firewire controler (ohci1394): FATAL: Module ohci1394 not
Does it mean the kernel doesn't support FireWire ? I have nothing to
test FireWire currently but I plan to buy an external FireWire hard
driver. Does it have any chance to work ? If not, why isn't the ohci1394
module included in the Fedora's kernel ?
Thanks for your help.

We need your help in order to collect data for readahead service
optimization. Services readahead_early and readahead read files on a
list into buffer memory in the background during system startup. By
optimizing both lists, we can make system bootup time faster and more
efficient, with the goal of reaching the gdm login screen in the least
amount of time.
We have provided a modified kernel below, and Markus Lidel has developed
a simple tool and database to collect readahead statistical information.
We need a wide variety of data from different FC2 latest installations
of desktop, workstation, and server profiles. We also need data from
both i686 and x86-64 users, as lib64 requires its own readahead lists
due to different file locations.
Data collected in Markus' database will be used on Thursday to compile
the readahead lists that will ship in FC2.
Readahead Data Submission Procedure
YOU MUST BE RUNNING FC2 LATEST.
1) Install this test kernel.
Installing this kernel disables readahead and readahead_early services.
It is IMPORTANT that these services are disabled during your readahead
test boot or results will be wildly inaccurate.
You can be sure they are disabled with:
chkconfig readahead off
chkconfig readahead_early off
2) boot like you would normally, but don't touch the computer for 3 minutes.
3) Run this tool. http://www.shadowconnect.com/redhat/readahead/import.pl
4) Uninstall test kernel.
This step automatically enables both readahead and readahead_early services.
For Optional Offline Operation
If your FC2 latest + test kernel machine does not have an Internet
connection, obtain a dmesg.txt file with the following command:
dmesg -s 524288 > dmesg.txt
Then transfer dmesg.txt to another computer with Internet. With the
dmesg.txt in the current directory, run the perl script. The dmesg.txt
will be transfered to the server.
Special thanks to Markus Lidel for working all day on preparing this
easy data collection mechanism.
I was wondering what the distribution, community and infrastructure
goals are for fedora core 3.
Will CVS be opened up?
Will extras be named extras?
Will selinux be on the hit-list again?
Will the webpage be more interesting/dynamic?
What's the timeline look like?
Will there be any time dedicated to just infrastructure/community
development and a general hold is put on the distro devel?
Any plans for build system work to come back to the fore?
Maybe right after the release of fc2 would be a good time for a 'state
of the fedora' message from the project leader?
