I have a WIN2K RAS Server at work with callback enabled. So when I make a
connection to my work with my WinXP workstation, the RAS server recognises
me and gives me an oppurtunity to be called back.
And then the line is hung up and the RAS Server calls my workstation. But
when i use PPP connection from my Fedora linux workstation connection is
establish but without opportunity to be call back.
What and how should i configure? any links, faq?
I try to install on my fedora core 2 server a KISS firewall.
The firewall is installed without any problem but when I try to start the
kiss firewall I get the follow: Since the ip_tables, ipt_state, and/or
ipt_multiport modules do not exist,
KISS can not function. Firewall script aborted!
I do: chkconfig --list | grep -E "iptables|ipchains" and get the follow
output: iptables 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on
Somebody have tips to get KISS working to secure my web machine?
Does anybody know why are the generated HTML pages encoded to
ISO-8859-1? I think UTF-8 would be better, because it is the default
encoding in Fedora and GNOME2.
Is it possible to change this setting without hacking xmlto?
Since Tammy is currently out, would you like to step in and talk about
projects that are either partly completed or need to be started, and in
what order we might want to tackle them? We have a solid albeit small
crew who, it seems, would probably like to start on some "real" FC
documentation. (At least I hope so... the list has been rather quiet of
late.) I would guess that a big part of that would be making some
decisions on tutorials that are badly needed, rather than waiting for
someone to walk in and suggest them.
Some of my suggestions:
- Installation guide? What's the status currently? Need help?
- Setting up a local mirror for FTP/HTTP/NFS installation and
system-intall-packages (yes, much of the former is in the anaconda docs,
but it needs a more newbie-friendly home)
- Setting up said mirror for provision of updates through up2date (as
opposed to the manual yum/apt stuff)
- General documentation of binutils and other command-line stuff for the
masses (Done already in official RH docs, but we need new, clean-room
versions for GFDL)
Maybe my "targeting system" is a little off here. My interest lies in
making Fedora Core accessible to Joe Newbie, while other people here
might be particularly averse to that line of thinking. Back when I used
Red Hat Linux, I always pointed people to the official Red Hat guides,
because they were darn good, solid docs. They taught one to take
advantage of the many nice ease-of-use facilities available in the
distro, while still encouraging digging underneath if one were so
I want people starting to use Fedora Core to have some of the same
advantages I feel I had using Red Hat Linux, without having to resort to
forking out a lot of cash to get a book that in large part goes over the
same type of material.
If anyone thinks I am way off base, say so. (You can't scare me, I'm a

After spending the last several days doing markup on a syntactically and
grammatically, er, "challenged" tutorial, I found myself in need of the
solace of Strunk and White's "The Elements of Style," if only to remind
myself that good writing does indeed exist outside my imagination. I
noticed during my Web search that EoS was released some years ago into
the public domain, and can be found in a variety of formats, although
DocBook XML was not one of these as far as I can tell.
I realize that "public domain" != "FDL," and therefore am wondering if
anyone out there has sufficient expertise to address the extent to which
EoS might be included in the documentation-guide. It would be a handy
reference for contributors, so they might acquaint themselves with the
way to write concisely before beginning a tutorial from scratch. It also
would help editors (myself included) to make the right changes when
presented with documentation that has been tortured and abused before a
In addition, or as an alternative, to EoS, perhaps there should be some
guidelines that have been useful to the Red Hat staff in preparing their
official RHL and RHEL documentation over the years. I have found those
guides consistently clear, concise, and informative, and I would hope
that FDP products would be of similar quality. By comparison, a lot of
the documentation on the Web is poorly written, and often lapses into
informalities, colloquialism, unhelpful jargon, and vague generalities.
On the other hand, in many cases those materials will form the basis for
future FDP work, so FDP content guidelines might be very useful as time
(In the event that EoS can be included in the documentation-guide, I
will volunteer to do markup, since I brought up the issue. I doubt it
will be very difficult in any case, given that it's dominated by

Prowling around, I found:
Very well written IMHO, and up to date.
I should be getting the docbook source soon.
I'll forward it to .... Tammy, hey come back we miss you :-)
Karsten? Do you have CVS rights?
Unsure even asking about this one.
Tomcat is an apache project, sort of a browser
They've recently gone from 4.x to 5.0x, and the
documentation has gone from fair to downright ..... poor.
I've just spent two days trying to figure it out.
Hoping there might be someone willing to help me
throw a minimum document set together?
tomcat isn't part of the Fedora core distro.

Im new here so if this has been asked before sorry but Ive tried everything
else. I was trying to get my old harddrive, CD-Drive, and RAM stick in my
computer running on Fedora Core 2. None of them worked and I had a terrible time
getting my computer to even startup. After I got it to work it get me the
following error which I can't figure out how to fix:
