I can't seem to get my system to boot from
the FC3 RC5 x86_64 DVD. The MD5SUM checks out out fine. Is
this a known issue? Any way to boot from the DVD or is
this 2.5G wasted?
Nb this is on a new EM64T system. Booting from the FC2 i386 DVD is not a
I just installed FC3 -- RC5. The first time I logged into my account, I
added a terminal window application launcher icon to my panel, and
promptly opened the terminal window. A few minutes after doing this, an
ugly pink flickering started up. the screen would flicker and the window
would turn shades of pink from light to medium. Moving in and out of the
terminal window (for example, switching focus to a Mozilla window) did
not stop the flickering.
This is on an ATI Radeon 9700 card -- it's listed as an 9700 Pro
although I think it might be an 9700 All In Wonder card -- with a
ViewSonic A90f+ running at 1152 X 864 and 'millions of colors'.
I decided to 'shut down' the machine and turn it on again and see if
that would help (that is, remove the flickering). This gave me a scare
for a few moments because suddenly there was no output at all to my
monitor! No BIOS messages...no Grub menu...just a steadily glowing
'power' LED. I pressed the system 'reset' button once with the same
effect. I tried it again after turning the monitor off and then on and
that restored my video output!
After a successful reboot, the flickering problem did go away. But while
checking my display settings, I brought up Applications --> System
Settings --> Display and that restarted the flickering.

We just got a hold of a Dell Poweredge 2850 with dual EMT64's in it. I
thought I would load of FC3 and give it a shot...Are there any issues
that the list knows about that I should watch out for?

There are a number of things that don't work in FC3rc3. Should I be
reporting them to this list or to bugzilla ?
The issues I know of now are:
kwireless needs to be manually restarted to work in a new session
Otherwise it shows that you have no connection. (I spent an hour
troubleshooting my connection before I realized that the problem was
kwireless and not the connection itself !)
sound doesn't work
open office file associations are missing
K3B has an issue with making DVD coasters
there was an anaconda installation error
ark hangs with large compressed tar files
there might still be an issue with glibc.
I'm downloading RC5 at this time and should have the DVD in a few more
hours. I'd like to do a fresh install of RC5, but for once don't want to
lose my home directory stuff especially my Mozilla mail folders and
filters. What is a good way to save these? Just tar up the .mozilla
directory and copy it somewhere, restoring it after the install? (Will
Mozilla insist on setting up a new profile, or will it use an existing
profile if found?)

Just upgraded from FC2 to FC3 RC5. This line was added
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_default_win_scale
However, there is no such file.
Maybe this was suposed to be:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling

yesterday I had succes upgrading my FC2 with development packages.
Everything seems to work except does programs that need glx. i couldn't
find the kernel-source pkg. I tried "yum install kernel-source" and "yum
install kernel-sourcecode" with no luck. so I can't rebuild my nvidia
driver. does any one knows where I can find it? or this is a known
