It's not my first installation of Fedora (my first installation was redhat
I can't install Fedora 8 on my new laptop IBM T61.
I have tried different options before boot kernel, tried install from DVD
or network (via ftp/http) and I always got this messges ( jest before
anaconda tring copy RPM packages to hard disk)

I have a package that installs some python modules into the normal sitelib
directory, but since the package is mostly contained of arch-specific
binaries I can't package these into noarch files . I need to move these
python modules into the sitearch dir; how can I modify the setup.py call to
install to /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 instead of just /usr/lib?
devel orphaned but still in rawhide
These packages will be removed from rawhide tomorrow 5PM UTC-5 if they
are not adopted.
Has Co-Owners but no primary owner
By FESCo decision, these packages will have co-owners promoted to
primary owner immediately. In the future PackageDB will automatically
promote a co-owner (of shortest name =) to be primary owner. If you
really don't want to be owner then orphan it after promotion and reply here.
A friend of mine have recently worked in a generic boot.iso.
The idea is to be able to use the same boot.iso whatever you are trying
to do a netinstall for Fedora 8 i386, x86_64 or a Fedora 9 i386, x86_64
or even a CentOS (from the work he did)
I think the idea would be nice to keep, having one general boot.iso for
all the current version of Fedora available would be nice I think. You
could then use the same one to install Fedora 8 on your i386 computer
your x86_64 laptop and Fedora 9 on your testing machine...
The iso can be found there :
a quick look at the file
isolinux.cfg give some ideas on how it is done...
Just an idea...
Bug or what?

I'm sharing music files from a F8 box using nfs4 and autofs on the F8
client. It seemed to work well at first, then I realised the mount was
timing out and Rhythmbox was 'losing' the files. I thought to work
around this with a wrapper script that does
I launch the script instead of rhythmbox directly.
By chdir into the served directory I hoped to keep the files visible,
but it seems that they are still lost from Rhythmbox sometimes.
So, am I doing the right thing, or could rhythmbox do more to work
with autofs mounts? Should I be serving up the files differently?
