The frenzy of people auditing their systems for timezone-change compliance
has brought this to my attention. One deficiency of the syslog format is
that it doesn't record the timezone (particularly annoying around the DST
change). But to compound this, the datestamp recorded from local syslog
calls is apparently based on whatever the calling client has their timezone
set as. Thus, you can do:
TZ="UTC+23:56" logger "Look! I'm logging from yesterday!"
if you want.
Apparently, there's a patch for this behavior in the perennially not
released sysklogd 1.4.2 (what's up with that?). I think we should consider
backporting this to Fedora. Comments?

I downloaded boot iso from ftp.crihan.fr mirror and tried to make a
fresh install of FC7. Boot goes well and installation wizard starts
After the dependancies computation and the / & swap format the install
stop. No "lock", GUI can be use but the install waits with a progress
bar which doesn'nt progress anymore.
In one of the tty I see the message "No handler could be found for
yum.Yumbase" or something like that.
Is that a known problem for test 2 or maybe I forgot something ?
I don't know if somebody is working on this but I've created a live cd
with KDE for fc6-i386 with the livecd-tools. So far it seems to work
The livecd-files based on the ones from David Zeuthen . I've just
created a config for a kde live spin which requires livecd-base-package.
What I have done:
- created 20-fedora-livecd-kde.conf
- removed most gnome packages and gnome settings
- included kde packages  (just to fill the cd)
- not included gdm to start kdm automatically
- inserted "startkde" in /home/fedora/.xsession
- made autologin for user "fedora" work with kdm
- also set user "fedora" as default and recent user (if somebody logs
out of kde)
- replaced redhat-web.desktop and redhat-email.desktop with "konqueror
--profile webbrowsing" and kmail in kicker (firefox and
evolution are not included)
The size of the cd is actually ~570 MB.
The files to create the live cd could be found here:
Perhaps this could be a start for someone (eg. the KDE-SIG?).

spamassassin-3.2.0-pre2 builds on FC6, but fails here in F7. I am
currently traveling without access to a rawhide machine. Anybody have
any idea what could be causing this build failure?
I just tried to install Fedora 7 with "cdrom" as packages support, but
no drives seems to be detected. I use a P-ATA drive on a Nforce4-4x
powered motherboard (Asus K8N4-E Deluxe) and didn't found any suitable
driver in the list (maybe I missed it ?).
Anyway, I will try network install, I just post this message for
Some packages are creating the system account for their
programs/deamons in the scriptlet with the specific user
id. So how does it actually prevent the duplicate user id
between the packages? I just wanted to know if there are
any policy/guildeline or the management system in Fedora for
the user id.
lately I found nice stuff
http://www.gnomefiles.org/app.php/Mac_Menubar_for_GNOME_and_Xfce , but I
can't compile gtk2 with patch need for macmenu and I can't compile macmenu
too;/ I think it's very good thing for the people who migrate from macosx to
fedora ;] Maybe somebody will make a two little packages for fedora
Have a nice day!
I am sorry to post this to devel list, but I guess this should better get
some initial insight & help from developers for now.
I will like to know how to get VoIP working on Fedora using Jabber
clients supported by libjingle & telepathy ?
Please provide some pointers to help me get started.
I don't know if this has been discussed or not, and I may have missed
it. But will the current dir tree for core & extras change once merged?
As in for example..
Core - /pub/fedora/linux/core/
Extras - /pub/fedora/linux/extras
- /pub/fedora/linux/new-dir-structure-here-that-maybe-only-contains-fc-release-versions with extras packages/rpms located within the core/rpm area? In other words, both sets of packages built as if its one release (whatever is spun off that release is a different question) and all of them located together in one dir or one dir under a release (fc7/fc8)?
Or will they keep the current layout but be maintained on same build
Am I asking this correct? haha
