The TeTeX project had this announcement in May this year which was in
the beginning of FC6 cycle:
| I (Thomas Esser) have decided not to make new releases of teTeX any
| more (May 2006). The information below might get out of date as time
| goes by. I suggest anybody interested in teTeX to join the TeX Live
Now it is the beginning of FC7, I would suggest Fedora core 7 move to
texlive. Here is how debian packages texlive:
Is there a standard process for getting things added to Fedora's kernel
package. In particular, I'm interested in the hdaps modules (IBM's Hard
Drive Active Protection System). I believe it has been in the stable
kernel since 2.6.14.
Or, am I just thinking about this wrong. Do uncommon modules not go in
the kernel package? Do they usually get packaged separately?

I'm not sure what list this is really appropriate for, so apologies if
this is the wrong forum. I noticed that the Fedora EULA still include
notes about export restrictions, specifically:
"... understands that certain of the software are subject to export controls
under the U.S. Commerce Departments Export Administration Regulations
Cuba, Iran, North Korea, etc. are all restricted areas. Out of
curiosity how is that being enforced on the Fedora infrastructure end,
and how is that restriction handling passed to mirrors? Is each
mirror required to implement their own set of restrictions? Does a
Fedora mirror server in Canada (or some other non-restricted country)
sidestep that issue? If so, doesn't that basically make the EULA
clause moot (from a once the dam is broken kinda perspective)?
I read that the number of machines using Fedora is being counted from
their use of getting updates with yum.
FC6 sets this up by default, with no instruction or permission to me, nor
any notice or question to me.
Is it spyware, by your definition? (Where you = anyone.)
Since I'm the maintainer of kmenu-gnome and possible kmenu-gnome on
the kde spin, I'm asking what changes/enhancements you would like to
see in that package to enhance usability on f7 kde.
Any changes or critics ?
I read about FC6 ships with SELinux alert notification tool, but I couldn't
get it to work.
After installing FC6 in full, I didn't find the alert tool installed. (I
had problem with FirstBoot; workaround found; then my rpm database
corrupted after the first update; it was restored. Newbie would really find
it not easy, unless they are good at searching for solution on the web. But
that is a different story...)
I read a few web pages and figured out the package to install, so this is
what I had done:
# yum install setroubleshoot
I started the service:
I didn't get notification when I copied a file from my home directory to
apache html directory and attempted to access the file. I got "403
Forbidden" error page, but there is no notification.
I tried the following commands, but they didn't work with root privilege:
# /usr/bin/sealert -b
could not attach to desktop process, running standalone
could not attach to desktop process
With user privilege, I can start the setroubleshoot browser, but it
couldn't access /var/log/messages as expected.
What am I missing?
Thanks for your help.
I noticed today that the symbol addresses given in
/boot/System.map-<kernelversion> do not match the running kernel (given that
the running kernel and System.map match, of course).
$ uname -a
Linux localhost 2.6.19-1.2914.fc7 #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 18:42:25 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
$ grep do_execve /boot/System.map-2.6.19-1.2914.fc7
c107d1a0 T do_execve
$ grep do_execve /proc/kallsyms
c047d1a0 T do_execve
The address from /proc/kallsyms is the correct one.
Is this intentional in some way?
