Stracing an mv operation shows that the above is performed. Reading
coreutils-acl.patch from the coreutils SRPM indicates that the code in acl.c
is creating a posix ACL that matches the Unix permissions and trying to apply
Why does it do this? What is the point of having a POSIX ACL containing the
same data as the Unix permissions, it seems that when POSIX ACLs are enabled
in the destination file-system it will just waste disk space and CPU time by
needlessly duplicating data, and when POSIX ACLs are disabled (the default
configuration) it will just waste a small amount of CPU time on the mv
operation in trying to set something that can never be set.
This seems like a bug to me, but someone has obviously gone to quite a bit of
effort to make it do that so there is presumably some reason. What is the
reason for desiring this functionality and does it really outweigh the

I've found this YUM repository aiming to replace the original
Fedora/RedHat KDE with a complete version (will all important
features enabled and lots of extra programs):
KDE support in Fedora leaves much to be desired in terms of
completeness. Couldn't some of this stuff be merged with
Fedora Core and the rest put in Fedora Extras? Except for the
few things with license or patent problems, of course.

Could someone tell me how the kernel used for kickstart (called the
BOOT kernel in RH 9 days) is created? How does one generate this
kernel using rpmbuild of the src rpm?
I'm just trying to undertstand the differences.
Thanks for any help.
Are there plans to use GCC 4.1 in FC5 (assuming it ships on schedule)?
There's so much java activity in GCC HEAD that this makes a big
difference to people debugging applications with FC5 in mind.
i'm currently running kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp and the symlink
/lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp/build is pointing to
../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp-i686/ althought a yum
install kernel-source installed kernel-source-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 and no
package kernel-devel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp is available...
is that "normal" ?

It seems that the Fedora FTP server and mirrors only keep the original
rpms and the latest updates to those rpms online. Where does one find
the obsoleted updated?
In my case, I needed to grab kernel-2.6.11-1.35_FC3.src.rpm and could
not find it anymore.
Is there a graveyard somewhere that google does not know about? Everything
google finds are broken links to places that have updated like the
original server, and no longer have the obsoleted rpms.
ps. I did find a copy on some obscure site, so my immediate problem is
resolved, but shouldn't Fedora keep at least src.rpms from previous
updated packages around?
