I didn't see any anaconda bugs filed against fc7t1 in BZ for this, so I
thought I'd check here first to make sure I'm not doing something stupid:
I have a kickstart file for FC7t1 that was generated from an earlier
FC7t1 install, but with an additional small %post section at the end:
echo foo > /root/foo.txt
However, it doesn't appear that the %post section ever gets run. The
'foo.txt' file never gets created. Is anaconda the right component to
file a bug against?
Seems planet.fedoraproject.org is suddenly coming up with posts about
N800, so I could not resist myself to ask here, that how many of us here
have got these devices.
I have got one myself, who else ? lack of applications is what we all
face, especially N800 ?
(I wish if RPM works there)
against which product and version bugs for FC7T1 should be filed? In
bugzilla.redhat.com one can find product "Fedora Core" and versions up
to "fc6", but no "fc7test1". Also, as there is no more "Fedora Core"
but only "Fedora" will the product then be "Fedora" and the version
"f7test1"? Anyway neither do exist yet.
I've got intial packages for FC7 and grub2. This allows grub2 to be
installed side by side with grub1. This is especially nice as grub2 is
still in development and some key features are still not there for
full replacement of grub one.
For this inital package I have support for standard i386 & x86-64 PCs.
I'll be adding an grub2-efi and ppc file pacakages shortly (though
because I'm a bit tardy getting these to the list I figured I would
just throw these on the list. I have a prebuilt package for x86-64,
the source rpm, & spec file. Everything can be found at:
While it installs fine to the boot sector.. for some reason (that I
cannot see why) grub is not reading from /boot/grub2/grub.cfg .. and
will bring to the grub prompt. While you can boot fine from the
prompt, I'm unsure why it currently is not reading the configuration
file and bring up a menu (I've seen it work in the past).
So now all commands have "grub2" as a prefix. So instead of
"grub-install". Also installs files to "/boot/grub2" when run
"grub2-install". You can easily see the file list from the rpm by
grabing the binary rpm and doing "rpm -qlp <package_name>".
Information on writing the config file for grub2 (which is grub.cfg)
can be found:

The Southern California Linux Expo is this weekend in Los Angeles. Here
are some last minute details:
The Expo has added one additional speaker. Doug Hass, Director of
Business Development for ImageStream, will speak on “Advanced Quality of
Service and Firewalls using Linux”
His presentation covers the key concepts of quality of service and
access list filtering using Open Source tools. The presentation
includes an explanation of filtering using Linux's iptables tool and
standard queuing methods as defined in the Differentiated Services RFC
as well as applications of these methods through generic case studies.
The Expo has added another BOF, “Schools And Open Source Software”.
There are a few BOF (Birds Of a Feather) session slots still available
at SCALE on Sunday. If your group needs a meeting room for a BOF,
contact gareth(a)socallinuxexpo.com to reserve one. The current BOFs can
be viewed at http://socallinuxexpo.com/scale5x/events/bof.php
If you live nearby, and have surplus electronic equipment you'd like to
discard, you can bring it to SCALE and dispose of it legally. Access to
the drop off point is a bit circuitous; we've created a map showing the
approach and departure from the drop off area. If you are bringing
equipment to dispose of, make sure you consult the map prior to leaving
for the Westin. The map can be found at
If you don't register ahead of time and have a question about the Expo
during the Expo weekend, the SCALE phone number will be manned by
Registration personnel during show hours. You can call 877-831-2569 and
be routed through the SCALE Asterisk PBX directly to someone at
The Vendor showcases currently booked are IBM with “Business Innovation
Through Linux”, and Verio with “Linux Virtualization in Action”.
The SCALE sponsors have generously donated oodles of prizes for the
SCALE raffles. The biggies are:
- Silicon Mechanics Rackform iServ R207 - This is a 1U rackmount server
with a Dual-Core Intel Xeon CPU
- 6-GB Seagate USB 2.0 pocket hard drive (Donated by Silicon Mechanics
- Winner's choice of Intel Core 2 Duo or Dual-Core Intel Xeon 5130
Series processor (from Silicon Mechanics and Intel)
- Four VIP Tickets to the Ticketmaster Suite at the Clippers VS Bobcats
game February 26th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles
Winners must be present to receive raffle prizes.
SCALE has received a ton of books to disburse during the Expo. Each
speaker at SCALE will receive several books to hand out at their
session. (E.g., for the best question during a Q&A session).
SCALE will be February 9-11, at The Westin LAX Hotel. Expo information
and registration is available at http://socallinuxexpo.com/
Come join us for the best Open Source show on the West Coast!

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:
