I am a Linux newbie and I am searching for the right distro for me. Looks
I have found the right one:-)
I have installed Fedora Severn about an hour ago and I'm really impressed.
It is the first distro that supports Dell TrueMobile 1180 Wireless USB
Adapter!!! But I don't know how to configure it :-( If anyone knows,
please let me know.
Another problem I have is the screen resolution. I don't know why but the
maximum resolution I can select is 1024x768. I have ATI Radeon 9000 pro
Last problem is with the sound. My sound card was detected but the sound
test failed. I have SoundMax Integrated Audio
Thanks for your help - selda
Anyone seen any issues with the gnome-weather-applet while it is running
on the gnome-panel? On my updated to rawhide system with latest FC beta
(clean install, then updates to rawhide each day), as has happened since
the first FC Beta, the gnome-weather applet seems to big for the
gnome-panel. As in, it starts off, via default after install, to fit on
the panel but with the panel the default size. But when you go to
resize the panel it stays big and doesn't resize itself to still fit on
the panel. So now you can't make out the temp readings as they are
lower than the panel.
"Can you hear me now?....GOOD!"
I assume that the RELEASE-NOTES in rawhide are final (or near final). The
amount of disk space for the minimum install is incorrect. I bugzill'ed this
earlier in the testing process and was told it would be fixed before release.
The current value is "510MB". A partition that size will not work ... you
need 600MB or more to do the install. This should be fixed before final.
I had to update gaim from cvs and install from source in order to correct an ICQ login (segfault/core dump) that was present in both 0.70 and 0.71 (possibly even earlier). Officially 0.72 has not been released, but the new source is in the CVS repository which corrects the problem. I just thought I would mention it FWIW. When 0.72 is released, I recommend that gaim gets updated once again.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good site with doc
of Xnest. I've been trying to get it working for me
for awhile. I have tried to google for it and have not
really found much on it. I've tried some of the
command that have been in this thread includung above.
As a user that resets my whole xsession. And as root
in terminal it spits this out:
GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session
manager:Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the
authentication protocols specified are supported and
host-based authentication failed.
It does open a window though with the fedora login,
which is what i wanted. The point is, I don't know
that message might not be bad, it might be. But I
don't know and I would like to learn. Also to create a
launcher(I know how to create a launcher just not sure
for this). So if someone could point me in the right
direction I would appreciate it.

Is this the same issue that others have seen with up2date pulling (well,
attempting to pull) rawhide files that no longer exist???
[root@localhost up2date]# rpm -Fvh desktop-backgrounds-*
error: open of <!DOCTYPE failed: No such file or directory
error: open of HTML failed: No such file or directory
error: open of PUBLIC failed: No such file or directory
....the problematic file was actually
desktop-backgrounds-basic-2.0.17.noarch.rpm Worthy of Bugzilla?
Replying to my own post, it appears that no Kickstart config statements
exist at this time (not that I can find documented, at least), but by
ensuring clearpart and all part/volgroup/logvol statements are commented
out, the install process will offer to partition automatically or let the
installer use Disk Druid. While Disk Druid isn't the best way to do it, at
least it gives me a workaround until the appropriate Kickstart config
i miss a groupware-solution in fedora,
after i spend some time (~1 month, september) with
and a shorter time (1 day, today ;-) ) with
i would say that moregroupware is actually my favourit.
easy to setup, more stable, supports more databases, less problems, ...
because i was not able to setup www. phpgroupware .org , www. egroupware
.org on the same system (i don´t know why) i have no direct comparison.
what do you think about a groupware in fedora ?
which would you recommend ?
OK, as the subject says, I have a couple questions regarding up2date and
First, is there a command-line flag to allow up2date --nox to upgrade
the kernels I have installed? I'm sure I can undo some configuration
line, but I like not having kernels upgraded willy-nilly.
Second, I want to also get kernel-BOOT, something I've never tried
before. Do I just use "up2date kernel-BOOT" to download and install it,
or as above, is there a flag I'll need?
Third, will kernel-BOOT show up in my lilo.conf as kernels usually do,
or does it skip it?
Thanks for answering any of my dumb questions.
I am a theoretical chemist. Fear me! Please.

Has anyone compiled or installed pgadmin3-1.0.1 or pgadmin3-1.0.0
successfully? The rpm seems to require libcomm_err.so.3 which is not
provided and the compilation from the source seems to require wx-config
which is not provided either by any package. At least according to yum
with my configuration.
It seems that to get it work one would download wxWindows packages
directly from wxwindows.org and install/compile them and then try to
compile pgadmin3 again.
This seems so much hassle that I would not bother if someone has already
