I just upgraded from koji after the mass rebuild. Note that I had an
up-to-date rawhide from this morning just before the upgrade. There
are a couple of obvious problems, at least for me.
Buttons in firefox/minefield are huge to the point where all web pages
are unreadable. I backed out the xulrunner and gtk2, also tried
changing gnome default themes/icons with no success.
All gnome terminal text (both typed and prompt) has a red background.
The settings in the terminal profiles don't help to fix it. I looked
in the bash man page but so far haven't found a setting that might fix

Your goals in the Fedora Project
Well, I'd like to help the open source community by contributing to a
project, even if I don't know how much time I'll be able to spend for
Which packages do you want to see published?
I noticed that Amaya was not anymore maintained and with a friend who's
already involved in the project (Thibault North) I've tried to package
the new version, this will probably be my first contribution. Otherwise
I'm intersted in Java in general and I will probably help with
java-related packages. I have also an interest in photography, so
related software would also interest me. And hopefully I will be able to
release part of my research work as a free software :D ...
MSc in CS, on my way to have a PhD...
What other projects have you worked on in the past?
Nothing serious, a few toy-projects...
What computer languages and other skills do you know?
I'm more at ease with Java, a bit of C, sh and Perl for the everyday
needs, a little bit of LISP...
Why should we trust you?
Why not ?

I will just need a sponsor to set up my Fedora Account by signing the
CLA and all that.
This one has me stumped:
I get the same error when I build locally with mock. However, if I go
into the buildroot, I can see that the config.h.SH file is there.
Inserting 'ls -l config.h.SH' into %build also shows that the file is
there. If I chroot into the mock buildroot and run '. config.h.SH', it
This same package built fine for F10. Any ideas what's causing this odd
I'm setting up a mythtv box and I recently had the opportunity to update
my motherboard. I had been using a board with added nvidia 9x00
graphics card and it was working well except that the fan on the
graphics card was noisy.
I did some research with regards to a new card to get, keen to get a
card with reasonable on board graphics that would handle big lcd
displays and also with hdmi and digital/coax outputs.
In the end I had the choise of two boards. One with an intel graphics
chipset (x4500) and one with an nivida chipset (7100) and given to
ongoing conversation on this list about using vendors that support open
source drivers I decided to go with the intel board. (I'd done some
other research that suggested that the graphics device was supported
including Intels website and fedora documentation (clearly not the right
You can imagine my disappointment when I couldn't even get X running on
the new board with the intel drivers (I've tried 'i810' and 'intel',
that later of which seems to be much more likely to actually work.)
So, I've got two choices.
1. Give up and put the nvidia graphics card on the board. This has a
number of downfalls. It brings the noisy fan back into play. It also
sees me without hdmi. But, the nvidia driver works well with this card,
so at least I get decent graphics.
2. Find out what's up with the 'intel' card and get it working. Sadly,
I'm not skilled in these areas (even though I've been testing fedora
since fc1) and need help.
I've asked twice (once on f-d-l and once on f-t-l) and both times my
emails have been ignored.
I've also posted a detailed bug on bugzilla (see:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487619) but haven't had any
I won't attach any log files or other info as it's all in the bug report
and it would just be excess traffic on the list.
Can someone help?
