I am doing a quick survey for software that you use on a regular basis
that is not available via the Fedora repository. Software that you
suggest should be free and open source, free of patent and other legal
Tell me the home page of the software and give me a brief description on
what it does. Bonus points if you can see in Google for "software-name
fedora package review" to figure it if it is already in the Fedora
package review queue. If you know of RPM packages in other distributions
for the software your are suggesting, that information is useful as well.

In follow up to this thread, I have managed to create a RPM for
The rpm and the spec file can be found here.
If anyone is interested, couple of harmless commands to try out:
$mmaker fluxbox -c|less
$info mmaker (the source doesn't a provide a man page)
This being my *first ever* rpm package, I don't expect it to be 100%
correct. I would gladly welcome feedback.
works fine on F10. On F11, some of the commands throw harmless(IMHO)
python deprecation warnings. I suspect these are due to the move to

I will be starting a blog dedicated to Linux in a couple of days. I am searching for a good Wordpress Theme which would suit my site's theme i.e. Open Source/GNU Linux. My site will mostly concentrate on Fedora & ubuntu, so a blue theme like Fedora solar will look good. I searched around but was unable to get a good theme. All I got was Windows Vista. Is there any Wordpress Theme designed to use for A Linux blog? Please help me find one.

I just read Rahul's post on the marketing list regarding OLPC going all
Fedora. I was just wondering if we Ambassadors from India could have
an IRC session to discuss the spreading of Fedora in schools etc.
locally around us ? We've discussed free media and local contact
programmes and how to implement them efficiently, which covers providing
media to people who are *already aware* of Fedora, usually people from
college onwards. We've never really chalked up a plan to implement
anything at a level younger/ less aware than that, and now that we have
people working on how to make it usable by kids, why not use it?
Everyone talks about taking Linux to kids ( what is referred to as grass
root level ). Why shouldn't take initiative? A meeting to discuss
possibilities would be a sort of a start??

Both the latest 140 and 155 kernels are not working. But the older 126
kernel is. Now, I am a bit anxious about the next kernel update,
because it keeps only 3 of them. Is there any way to keep the 126
