might be helpful if you ever need to install Oracle 9i on fedora 3 or
I will also write a pre-install script stuff soon
I also want to thank Jean Francois for helping me out on most tricky part :-)
The last update files for xorg causes the following error:

We are running a simple caching named process on a separate
computer here. Every two weeks it needs to be rebooted due
to running out of memory. It can survive for a while further
on swap, but that slows things down terribly.
After restarting named the memory is still in use according
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 775664 760064 15600 0 736
-/+ buffers/cache: 747444 28220
Swap: 1566296 9108 1557188
But according to ps all processes use a 0.0-0.6% ram. (ps -Ae vx)
from slabinfo I got the following interesting lines:

Seems like bio is taking up nearly all the memory, what can cause this?
Any way to force it to go away? =)
This problem has been there for a long time, we have this problem on
all our nameservers but always thought it was a bug due to us reloading
a huge config every half hour. 2GB ram makes those boxes run for a few
months before they need a reboot.
But this caching nameserver should not be such a special case, and since
it caches all our RBL queries it seems to run out of memory much faster.
This problem has followed us atleast since FC2-test2, and now FC3.
I just upgraded to bind-9.2.5-1, but I seriously doubt that it will have
any significant effect.
I have a Compaq USB 2.0 Link adapter which has a wart in the middle of the
cable containing a Prolific Technology Inc. 2501 chip and unknown
microprocessor and memory, etc.
It is to connect a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop (new disk with Fedora 3 -
pretty well updated using CDROMs and updates burned to CDROM) with desktop
Most everything else works nicely (tested on the desktop) - watching the
/var/log/messages, I can plug in a Keyspan USB serial, Macintosh USB
keyboard, Yahoo mini optical mouse, Flash USB drive - marvelous actions and
everything cites works as expected. Keyboard takes over as console
keyboard, Flash drive icon appears on desktop - marvelous.
However, the host to host only puts one line in the log file:
Mar 26 12:07:04 hoho2 kernel: usb 1-4: USB disconnect, address 3
Mar 26 12:07:10 hoho2 kernel: usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using
ehci_hcd and address 4
(Actually two lines - one when I pulled it out, the 2nd when I pushed it in).
The other end of the cable is plugged into the Gateway (to get power..)
although it does not seem to make it more intelligent at this stage.
I updated hotplug and udev (to 50) and set DEBUG=true on udev. (on desktop)
Reading through the man pages and documentation on hotplug and udev, it is
not so clear as to whether hotplug is even working on my system (no
hotplugd daemon), or whether it should. Lots of documentation, but then
words later saying, Oh, if you have a 2.6 system .. something else happens.
It would be nice to have a doc that tells where an event comes into the
system at the begining, and then it is passed off to xyz, which then passes
if off to abc.. Sort of the ankle bone connected to the leg bone, connected
to the knee bone song.
The Compaq gadget came with a mini-CD, but it is for Windows only. Maybe
there is something essential here?
Hoping for a clue

if most people dont require kernel-source there is no
point in providing it in addition to srpms.

they can use the srpm

5. Goals in Fedora Project:
* Currently I want to see the PDF problems resolved in the DocBook
toolchain in Fedora Core. Some of us are experimenting with FOP, we'll
see how that turns out. If you are interested in this, please join
fedora-docs-list(a)redhat.com and join the discussions. I don't know yet
what packages this will include, but when I do know, I'll want to see
them in FC.
* I already do QA, mainly when doing documentation. Doc writers find
the strangest bugs ...
* As the newly minted project leader for the Fedora Docs Project (FDP),
I have a special interest in seeing the Fedora Project be well
* More Fedora in developing nations, end-users and developers alike.
This means stronger internationalization, bigger translation community,
more documentation for all levels of users.
6. Historical quals:
# Past projects?
* Member of the FDP since inception (Aug. 2003), current project leader.
* Worked on SELinux project since it's inclusion in Fedora Core, writing
the release notes entries, Fedora SELinux FAQ, and being as helpful as I
can on fedora-selinux-list and #fedora-selinux (nick: quaid).
* I am a fairly good sysadmin with weak scripting skills and no real
* My DocBook/XML is pretty strong, my XSL-fu and CSS-fu are weak but
* I was a consultant service provider for Red Hat and VA Linux, so I
have seen and worked in a lot of real world Linux environments. I tend
to be service oriented, i.e., helpful. :) This means I'm full of
* Briefly -- most of the Fedora developers from Red Hat and many of the
non-Red Hat developers have worked with me. I have met even Warren f2f.
Finally, I have this shiny medallion here ... swinging ... swinging ...
swinging slowly in front of your eyes ... meaning ... meaning ...
meaning I'm trustful ... you are feeling very trusting of me, aren't
you? Mmm? Good ... very good ... when you wake up you will feel
refreshed and relaxed, like you just roused yourself from a daydream and
had a good stretch ... you will remember none of this conversation ...
except you will remember to trust me ... ready? one ... two ... three,
Trust me now?

does something called "freedesktop HIG" even exist?
