After updating from yesterday's rawhide (1st Oct), Evolution seems to have
died. It will load, but is unable to store the inbox file (it also can't
resync on the inbox file). This means the software is completely inoperative.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
It's only me, only me and no-one else.
As we know have a replacement for Codeina, in the shape of the
PackageKit helper, I relinquished my ownership of Codeina in devel.
If somebody wants to take it over, please talk to Thomas about it.
I'm currently trying to install fedora 10 beta on my f8 desktop. The
first bug I encountered was a file conflict between
system-config-firewall and system-config-firewall-tui which both want to
bring in system-config-firewall.mo. Clearly a bug, but who shall I
blame? system-config-firewall system-config-firewall-tui, anaconda or
even the new rpm?
I fetched F10-Beta-x86_64 Live ISO. While I was installing this live
ISO to hdd, the screen went to sleep because there were no event. But
when I tried to wake it up by hitting random keys on my keyboard, it
never woke up. Tried it several times. But a single mouse event was able
to wake it up. I am not sure whether bug should be filed against
gnome-screensaver or some other package.
Hardware - Wireless Keyboard (USB), Wired Mouse (USB).

The Fedora 10 launch is right around the corner and we over at the Docs
Project need a hand with some of your beats for the F10 release
notes. A beat is covering a part of the distro, such as GUI office
productivity apps, the kernel, or developer tools.
We are looking to fedora-devel-list as we figure you all know the most
about the F10 packages and F10 feature(s) functionality. The beats
marked with an "Open" are the ones we need help with, either with
content contributions or owning the beat. You can put your name in for
the beat on the wiki, or reply to this email, to fedora-docs-list, or
catch one of the folks in #fedora-docs with what you want to help with.
Many thanks from the Docs folks.

The Live i686 image works SUPERBLY from a 4G USB stick. I can even
hot-plug a external monitor, run the screen resolution and voila monitor
is auto-detected and dual-head can be configured dynamically. Holy Wayne
Lord of the Malt Beverages, it just works! I ran into a few bugs, but
nothing too drastic (live img won't boot when external monitor is
plugged in, changing the desktop font size doesn't update existing
I successfully installed the live image onto a 8G USB stick. However
booting the 8G stick does not work. The boot behaviour is very
different: it's booting in a text mode with a bottom text "progress
bar". Once the progress bar becomes all white, the system just hangs
there. No mingetty to escape to, no error messages. How can I provide
more information ?
