It would seem that the stable builds of Helix and RealPlayer both have
problems with the ALSA snd-atiixp driver - the sound would play for a
second, stutter and skip, play again, stutter again and so on.
The good news is that the daily builds fix this - but for some reason
when I play back a Theora video there the colors become messed up.
So the question is: is Fedora Core 5 planned to ship with Helix 1.0 or
the next stable version? If the former, could whatever changes have been
done in the development version to fix the sound problem be backported?
I am a new guy for the Xen, and When i try to using Xen with Fedora 4, There
is some trouble that stop me complete the work. Can you give me some advice?
thanks very much.
1. I installed FC4 successfully
2. rpm -i xen-2-20050522.i386.rpm
it report that it depend on bridge-utils, libSDL-1.2.so.0
3. then i execute rpm -i bridge-utils-1.0.4-6.i386.rpm
it report it depends on libsysfs.so.1
then i dont know how to do next, since i cant find any rpm file matach libSDL,
libsysfs.so.1, So can anybody who already installed Xen with FC4 help me?
also, the http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstart page say:
To run xen, you'll need to install the xen package as well as a xen0 and
xenU kernel packages. You'll also need
Using grub as your boot loader
Probably something on the order of 256 MB of RAM with the default
Then, you should be able to install the xen and kernel-xen0 packages. Once
this is done, you should have an entry set up in your grub.conf to boot the
xen0 kernel. Now, reboot into your new xen0 kernel
Is there any details on how to install xen step by step? as a beginner, i
am not sure, where is the xen and kernel-xen0 packages?
I've just stumbled across on of my ancient package requests in bugzilla.
It is for Grace, a really nice data plotter similar to gnuplot but a lot
more intuitive. Here the link:
I played around with it quite a while ago and was really impressed,
especially withe the statistics stuff you can do with it.
Though i probably won't have time to take care of it i'd just wanted to
mention it here so that the request doesn't vanish into oblivion. If
someone feels like wanting to pick it up that would be really nice.
Read ya, Phil

Motd: You're only jealous cos the little penguins are talking to me.
There was mention some time back on the list about the new mouse pointer
and how the busy mouse pointer doesn't have a point making it quite hard
to point at things while it's showing busy.
Is this intended to be fixed before FC5?

While trying to get the FrontPage of the wiki looking a little better, I
decided to give it a try in Internet Explorer. What I saw I didn't
like. At first, I thought I had done something that IE didn't like, but
after investigation (including a bunch of trivial changes) I have
determined that the problem more likely lies in the CSS for the default
The problem in IE is that some objects such as tables and textareas have
a large amount of whitespace above them. I haven't checked many
versions of Internet Explorer, but the most recent versions are affected.
I would like to advise that the CSS for rightsidebarsmaller (and perhaps
others) needs to be checked into. Although most of the visits to
fedoraproject.org are probably from Linux viewers, we are also trying to
show Windows users to the light. We will have visitors using Internet
Explorer, and should try to make sure things look right.
Another option would be to set the default theme to sinorca4moin, which
does not exhibit the problem.

Hey there, recently rejoined the list...
I was wondering if there was any reason that Thunderbird's Deer Park
branches wern't being built in Rawhide along with the Firefox Deer Park
I would like to suggest switching the default theme on the wiki to
sinorca4moin and making http://fedoraproject.org/ redirect to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ . I have been working on reformatting
the FrontPage, and, with that theme, it looks great (IMHO) and
completely surpasses what is currently at http://fedoraproject.org/ .
For the sake of completeness, I have added a link to
http://planet.fedoraproject.org/ to the FrontPage, which means it now
refers to everything that the current page does. If you take a look at
it with the sinorca4moin theme, you can't help but agree. I have even
run it by some friends and family who have no interest in Fedora, and
they like how it looks. I hope this is a viable option.
