Is it possible to create rpm packages of thunderbird and firefox
extensions? I'd like to install some global extensions on each of our
machines and I'd prefer to have rpms, but not sure how it would interact
with or replace the -install-global-extension option. Perhaps
fedora-packaging is a better place to ask?
It might be nice for fedora extras to be able to provide extensions as well.
I am using Linux fedora core 3.
how can i make a non root user as a superuser.
when ever i enter into system as a non root user by login ,the user
must be super user.
if u have a solution plz mail me to hvreddy1110(a)gmail.com
thanks in advance
Linux and Open Source are about choice.
Fedora Core LT would be about lightness.
GNOME is without a doubt the heaviest window manager available on Linux.
OpenOffice is not a light office suite.
OpenOffice is included because it is almost a must. There are so many
formats that it handles, and so much better than Abiword and Gnumeric, that
it pretty much had to be included. These two apps are there because of their
lightness. They could, however, be easily changed to KOffice.
The original package set that I made included only two window managers,
fluxbox and XFCE. They are very different, and though XFCE is my personal
choice, fluxbox was a very small package to include, and provides the choice
of window managers for even very slow computers.
Why KDE? I could easily have chosen GNOME instead but I did not. There are
two reasons. First, GNOME is much heavier than KDE. In recent releases, KDE
is surprisingly fast for such a multi-talented WM. Also, including KDE
allowed me to use some of the fantastic apps that come with it. For example,
kdegraphics is less than 8 megabytes, but adds such programs as KView,
KolourPaint, KIconEditor, and more. kdemultimedia is the same. Also,
including KDE makes the distro suitable for even new users on older
It is my hope that as FC-LT would develop, that it would gain such
attributes at it's own lighter kernel, a more refined package selection.
I hope that this answers some of your questions. If you have any more- just
Oh, and btw, all packages are in either Fedora Core Base or Extras. Fedora
Core packages would all be compatable with FC-LT. Therefore, it can
certainly be called a Fedora Core.

I´ve noticed this slowdown, too. Very good with hdparm. On my 2 systems
a Athlon64 PC and a new Inspiron notebook. That´s why I´m not more using
the slower default kernel for months. There are too much unneeded things
and too many server features compiled in, which are more for a server
and not for my notebook/PC. Which really not needs Debugging, SELinux,
RAID, 20 security features,.... No normal desktop user needs it. My girl
not, my neighbour not, my best friends not, all are running a Fedora
installed from me.
And thats the point. One kernel for the desktop and one for all server
users, which you select at the installation or later. Is that too much?
And we never get these "slow Fedora kernel questions" again... ;)
I am using Linux fedora core 3.
How can i autologin as a superuser (root).
i am able to autologin as a non-root user but not as a root.
i can hande the security issues if i can autologin as a root.
so if u know the solution mail me to hvreddy11110(a)gmail.com
thanks in advance.
I'm looking for a reliable answer here. With FC3 I had to get a specially patched kernel to use ndiswrapper because the kernel stack was 4k and a larger stack size was needed. Downloaded a 16k FC3 kernel from Linuxtant and it worked. I was wondering what size the FC4 kernel stack is because I want to upgrade but Linuxtant hasn't yet provided a FC4 kernel.

I have worked often on computers that are not the greatest when it comes to
the specs. Because of this, I thought that it would be a good idea to have a
2 CD, light-weight version of Fedora Core. I set myself to putting together
just such a system, and you will find a list of the packages attached,
called package-selection.txt. All toghether, the packages total only 1383
MB. If some packages need to be removed to fit on two CD's, I reccommend
removing xmms, Abiword, Gnumeric, kdegraphics, and inkscape first. These
packages, along with their dependencies, are nearly 40 MB. It is my hope
that this can become a Fedora Core LT branch that will allow many more
people to use Fedora Core. Here are some notes on the package list:
- A calculator needs to be added
- KDE default theme should be changed to Plasik
- Available window managers: Fluxbox, XFCE4, KDE
- Available office apps: OpenOffice, Abiword, Gnumeric
- Available media apps include: GIMP, Inkscape, KolourPaint,
KSnapshot, Noatun, XMMS
- Available internet apps include: Firefox, Thunderbird, GAIM,
- Other Apps: yum, K3B, KSysGuard, system-config-display etc.
- If it does not fit on two CD's, please try to remove these apps
first: inkscape, kdegraphics, abiword, gnumeric, xmms
To try this package selection, print out added-yum.txt. Then perform a
minimal install and run "yum install [packagecommand]" for each line in the
printed added-yum.txt, where [packagecommand] is replaced by each line of
the document.Change the default runlevel to 5, and you're ready to go! The
list of commands is actually not too long.
Good Luck, and I hope that this is useful.
Please respond with thoughts, comments, suggestions, whatever... (maybe even
some iso's! :D )
