Specifically, click on Tools | Options, then, General and Fonts & Colors.
If you have "Always use my Colors" checked, try unchecking it. I was able
to duplicate the behavior described simply by checking that box.

I am planning an upgrade from fc2 to fc3 using the cds. I am connecting
to the internet using a cisco wlan pcmci card. FC2 configures this in
av very strange way as setting it is up as an ethernet card and not a
wireless. In addition it creates 2 wireless devices nick named eth0:1
and eth0:3 - these are not checked but still activated. As a consequence
~ I have a problem in configuring the wlan correctly and are unable to
set the encryption key.
I would like remove all traces of this card from my fc2 prior to the
upgrade and do new hw install of the card incl a fresh configuration.
What is the best/safest way to remove all signes of this card from fc2?
Is it sufficient to delete all devices from the network configuration or
should I edit some config files. If the latter, which files?
thanks in advance,

having the problem that firefox-1.0-2.fc3 displays pulldown menus
in websites like www.macrovision.com in a transparent manner so
that they are partially unreadable.
Can somebody tell how to switch off this behaviour?

In a nutshell, here's what has happened tonight.
Everything was normal, I did an update, updated from svn mono and the
other bits from there and was doing my email.
I noticed that gtkhtml-sharp wasn't compiling. The script in gtk-sharp
is supposed to pick up libgtkhtml3, see if it's new enough and if it is,
will create gtkhtml-sharp (it's just a wrapper). Now, I know that
libgtkhtml is on this machine (otherwise the likes of Evolution wouldn't
Open a terminal, /sbin/ldconfig
lots of errors about files not being symlinks. Oh dear.
Then odd things start happening. All email gets sent to the junk folder
in Evolution, terminal windows fail to open, desktop icons stop working,
panel applets fail to operate....
I swapped to tty1 and typed rpm -q gtkhtml-devel
Machine replies that /usr/lib/libpopt cannot be found. Sure enough, it
had vanished - along with quite a few other libraries.
Okay, reboot, see what happens.
Lots of errors about libpopt not being there. Damn. I can log in to a
tty, but no network. I burn my /usr/lib directory to CD from the laptop
(also on rawhide) and copy it to this machine. That's better. I don't
get the libpopt error now. Reboot. No network, no desktop (Id 'x'
respawned too quickly).
Reboot, switch off selinux incase that was the problem. This time, I get
eth0 up, but no desktop. Not a problem, downgrade to a previous version
of xorg-x11, reboot with selinux. No eth0, but with desktop. Try the
last selinux, reboot - same as before, no eth0 when it's enabled.
I'm now running on a machine without selinux and an older xorg-x11.
Anyone else seeing this?

Hi. I am using FC3. The firewire in FC3 mounts my firewire drives fine
at boot, but I am having problems with the sbp2 (serial bus protocol 2)
kernel module --it gives me "ieee1394: sbp2: aborting sbp2 command"
about 40 times per hour (and times out for 30 seconds each time). An
official solution is to add the parameter 'serialize_io' when I load the
sbp2 module (with modprobe). This was nice and easy before the days of
hotplug, as I could just add serialize_io to /etc/modules.conf. Things
are not so easy in the land of hotplug. Where
in /etc/hotplug/hotplug.functions can I add the parameter serialize_io
(or can I)? There doesn't seem to be anywhere to add module parameters
(without re-writing the script).
Thanks in advance,

this one is attached on /dev/hdd and it works Ok.
But second drive is scsi, and is also found by my kernel:

Should I insert some module to get it working, I also notice that there
is no device for scsi cdrw?!?
I have a laptop with synaptics touchpad and ps mouse.
These work very well together, allowing fancy tapping with the synaptics
and scrolling using the ps mouse wheel, but ONLY after adding the
grub boot line:
This took quite a lot of googling to find, and I wonder if there
is a reason this behaviour could not be default? Laptop convenience
is something FC4 should aim for, in my opinion...
I have a six-in-one media reader. The first slot works fine in
Fedora. I did read that some devices need probing of the scsi lun's.
There was some information that needed to be provided to get the fedora
team to make the necessary changes, so the device could work without
enabling probing of LUN's in the kernel.
I have the Spring-Rev1.1 Multi 6-in-one media reader. I would like to
get the device to work with different storage media. Could someone
let me know what information is required. I then get the information
and open up a bugzilla report on it.
