Sorry to bug developers, but I didn't get any bites from PPC users on
Does Fedora PPC work or install on oldworld PCI Macs, such as a beige
G3 desktop? My impression is that no one has tried it on an oldworld
Mac in the last few releases, and that getting it to boot at all would
be an adventure.
(Otherwise I'm going to try Debian Lenny, which is said to work, but
about which I know nothing. The machine has 416 MB memory and I'll
install a 40 GB hard disk for Linux, so other than speed it should be
good to go.)

I would guess that you are not informed correctly.
My software easily compiles on more than 30 different OS platforms by just
calling "make". Well, there are many well known bugs in gmake and gmake before
3.81 will not work at all. This is why I recommend to use my "smake". Note
that smake is much older than gmake and works on more different platforms
that gmake does.
I know that some Linux distributions ship with the broken original Linux kernel
include files. On such distros, you will have problems to compile any software
that supports linux specific features....
If you have problems compiling cdrtools, I recommend you to first start with the
complete Schily source distribution from:
as this will first compile a bootstrap "smake" and then use this "smake" to
compile the rest.
Note that I cannot check all platforms for oddities on a regular base as I don't
own all the needed hardware. I however do regular full compiles and tests on the

Haiku (a BEOS clone)
Linux (various flavors)
Mac OS X
All platform compiles are done in 32 _and_ 64 bit on platforms that support 64
If you have proplems on your specific platform, I recommend that you make a

I have the impression that since about 2 days ago the font rendering
in Fedora rawhide is less good than before. Fonts appear fuzzier, and
in particular Luxi Mono looks more deformed. There hasn't been a
freetype update, thus some GNOME package might be responsible.
I have noticed this effect on 2 different systems, one with an ATI
video card, the other with an Intel onboard graphics device. ~C
I've installed F-12 beta on my new laptop with ati radeon hd 4570 graphic
card, I was going to file new bug. With kms enabled, everything is really
sloooow, with 'nomodeset' it's much faster. I can't say exactly "how" slow
is, is there anything I can use for measuring?
btw, mesa-dri-drivers-experimental does not work at all for me (glx apps
To Michal Hlavinka,
Hi, in Fedora 12, KMS for R600/R700 is an experimental features. The next
mainline kernel, 2.6.32 will official support KMS of R600/R700.
Xorg still does not release opensource drivers for R600/R700 to run 3D
program. Mesa-dri-drivers-experimental is just a testing package. It can run
compiz. But compiz is easy to crash with this dri-drivers. Believe that,
Fedora developers still work hard for opensource ati driver. Please wait a
moment. 3D acceleration is coming soon.

There is a package, already included in Fedora, and there is a
friendly and active upstream developer, who wants to be a
(co)maintainer of this app. (S)he doesn't maintain any packages in
Fedora currently. So the question is - is there a policy on how such
situations should be handled?
I remember, that if Redhat hires someone from upstream, then no
additional procedures with review requests and sponsorship needed (at
least visible to others, outside Redhat) - (s)he just started to be a
With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
So this isn't a strictly development question, but based on the
answer it very well could be. I don't use evolution, but the
evolution-data-server is running. Is it used for anything else? If not,
perhaps it would be good to not run it as part of the gnome session when
the users default mail client isn't evolution. If it is used for other
purposes then whatever. Otherwise I can file a bug report if desired...
