I just wonder why Firefox's About window is resizable on Linux, but
not on Windows? As to my personal feeling, a resizable static window
indicates a not carefully tested product. :)
Sorry if OT, since I haven't tried Firefox on distros other than
Is there a String Resource or equivalence in RPM package that one can edit
using Hex Editor and have the package still valid without another rebuild?
It can be text or binary, but it needs to be uncompressed, and not
affecting RPM package checksum.
It would be best if #postinst script can easily query the value of the
I guess a less-optimal compromise is to repackage the RPM only, without
rebuild the binary tar ball, so that files can be modified or added before
What is the least effort, best practice?
Thanks in advance for any information.
as some of you know, I'd prefer to have a separate mailing list for
discussions around EPEL. I didn't bring that topic up much until now,
but two people in private mails heavily insisted to have a special EPEL
mailing list. So I'm trying to move this discussion here.
Do you guys want a separate mailing list for EPEL?
The usual advantages and disadvantages apply. Maily: Users that are only
interested in EPEL don't have to subscribe to a mailinglist that has 95%
of traffic they are not interested in (advantage). Yet another mailing
list, where we need to get people that are interested subscribed while
most Fedora Contrbutors are already subscribed to fedora-devel
I d like to report a kernel oops, but I don't know how to catch the
After an upgrade to kernel 2.6.19-1.2911, the system crashes at boot. I
didn't had this problem with 2.6.19-1.2895 version. I didn't found such
a bug in the bugzilla.
Is it possible to save the stacktrace in order to fill a bug report ?
How can I do that ?
Thanks in advance.

What happened to a lot of devel.x86_64 packages. For example i can't
compile X11 apps that use pkg-config anymore because things like
xproto.pc only exist in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ and not
in /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/, but /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/x11.pc has a require
Any idea what happend here, i already tried to install .x86_64 versions
but they are just not available.
I just checked my laptop which is a core2duo with 1 gig of ram. WinXP
reports PAE but fc6 installed non-PAE kernel. Would the PAE kernel be
better for me or should I stick with the non-PAE? Obviously I don't need
highmem support, will that be to much of a performance hit?

I'm trying to hack/test a network driver's ability to suspend, resume,
and wake-on-lan (while suspended). This is on a rawhide x86_64 desktop
system. Is the Fedora pm-stuff documented anywhere? I can't seem to
find anything on the wiki, and the only related manpage is for pm-pmu.
FWIW, suspend didn't seem to work, but hibernate did (aside from a
bunch of lockdep warnings). As near as I can tell though, my network
module is unloaded instead of suspended because I think it gets swept
up in the modunload() function of /etc/pm/functions.
It'd help if I could find some documentation on Fedora power
management, to try and get an understanding of how it's all supposed
to work. Any ideas where I can find some docs?
I am trying to make the synaptics touchpad work on fedora. I am
following the instructions on
The first problem is that some modules (mousedev, usbhid and evdev)
are compiled builtin. Why?. I compiled a custom kernel with them as
To force the order in which they are loaded, I added the following
line to modprobe.conf:
install mousedev /sbin/modprobe usbhid && /sbin/modprobe
install usbhid /sbin/modprobe appletouch && /sbin/modprobe
install appletouch /sbin/modprobe evdev && /sbin/modprobe
install evdev /sbin/modprobe uhci_hcd && /sbin/modprobe
Is there a better way to do it?
Unfortunately, X still can't find the synaptics:
Query no Synaptics: 6003C8
(EE) Synaptics Touchpad no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
(EE) Synaptics Touchpad Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics Touchpad"
I will try to upgrade the synaptics driver. Does anyone has another suggestion?
