I am getting the ff error on xscreenaver
xscreensaver: Can't open display: :0.0
xscreensaver: running as yonas/yonas (500/500)
xscreensaver: Errors at startup are usually authorization problems.
But you're not logging in as root (good!) so something
else must be wrong. Did you read the manual and the FAQ?
Title says it all. This was an FC2T1 system kept up to date with yum
and upgraded to FC2T2 with yum, including manually following the
procedure to enable selinux (I believe in relaxed mode). There's not
much info about the crash in /var/log/XFree86.0.log other than the
sig11, so I don't know if it's a general problem or selinux related.
Commenting out the 'Load vnc' line in my XF86Config prevents the sig11.
I will be rebooting with selinux=0 to see if that fixes it. Meanwhile,
has anyone who has done a clean install run into this with vnc.so?

After an install with SELinux enabled
logged into kde as root, and added a couple of normal user with the add
user graphical tool, specifying UID manually and creating their unique
group names as the user as well.
I had their userdirs created and I could also get into them by executing
su - myuser
(answering no to the security context question)
but if I try to login from the kdm prompt
the login fails and the error message is that the /home/myuser directory
does not exist
I can only log in a failsafe session using / as temp home
The clock-applet is on the panel but when I right click on the time and select preferences it dies and I get a error message pop up that just says "The Application "clock-applet" has quit unexpectedly." It then lets me restart the clock-applet which puts it back on the panel. Then the prosess repeats. I just want to set it to display the full date. Its just keeps dying when seleting Prefeneces...
Anyone else have this prob., a fix?
Installed FC2T2 on i8100 without problems, however:
- The 'yenta_socket' not loading bug from FC2T1 is still there.
I have to manually modprobe yenta_socket, restart pcmcia and
/sbin/ifup eth0 to enable networking.
Is this "a work in progress" or should I bugzilla it again?
- I configured SElinux as 'permissive' during install in the hope
that everything would work as in previous versions of RH/Fedora
and I would just get warnings if things had changed.
But, for example, I could not start the 'system-config-*' apps
from the menu and had to run them as root in a terminal.
Changing SElinux to 'disabled' fixed this.
Is this a deliberate policy configuration or a bug?
PS: Though I can envision some uses for SElinux in a home environment
in general it seems to be massive overkill and adds a substantial
level of complexity. How is grandma going to deal with this?
I just finished installing (actually upgrading FC2t1) test 2 and was
running up2date to get the freshest packages when I get this wierd
dependency error. It seems xsane and one other app(I forget which)
requires the libgimp libraries. I can't find any libgimp packages, so
they must be packaged under a different name. Can someone tell me what
packages I need?

IBM Thinkpad 600 Update from FC1
- CD boot only works with floppy drive attached (as with other stuff) so
probably a BIOS issue
- Had to use APM not ACPI
o Gnome desktop seems to work pretty well
o Most general system stuff works well and its quite usable
o Install hit a couple of problems but mostly worked
o Wireless just worked
o Lots of translations have not been merged despite being
present for ages. In fact some of them have been translated for
RH first, then their equivalent for Debian and Debian packages
still get out first
** Other translators definitely need to check each app and file
bugs if there translation is missing **
o Several translation master pot files appear stale on i18 cvs
o Up2date still has bad bugs unfixed from before FC1, and added some
new ones. Right now its been stuck installing system-config-httpd
for an hour! (and I had to kill it)
o Config tools still seem fairly flakey.
Initial problems I've found:
- Welsh translation missing from installer (didnt know Jeremy needed a
table of data)
- Due to another bug it failed to find swap so reported I didn't have
enough swap and talked about 2.4 swap needs (#119607)
- Screwed up partitioning. This is parted mess as fdisk is fine
(not filed, several existing reports)
- Translations missing from system-config-network (#119610)
- Translations missing from system-config-authentication
- System-config-authentication hangs mysteriously for several minutes with
NIS but no NIS server, and wont even update UI
[Couldnt find which package it is in bugzilla]
- system-config-network spews errors on activating orinoco wireless but
- system-config-date: deprecation warning (#119612)
- system-config-display: some translation bits missing, investigating with
- up2date: still full of bugs dating back to FC1 and earlier, also missing
cy and possibly other translations (#119615)
- system-config-mouse: translations appear stale, checking
- system-config-packages: translations missing. As with many system-*
apps still has awful refresh handling problems. (#119618)
- system-config-printer: translations missing (#119619)
- system-config-proc: thinks its called sysctlcfg, weird fonts, weird ui
and full of broken English like "Ripped of powertweak" [Powertweak btw
is a trademark] (#119621)
- system-config-services: some translations missing, investigating
- system-config-services: spews errors (#119624)
- system-config-services: missing glade file (#119622)
- system-config-services: help button does not work (#119623)
- system-config-time: deprecation warning as per config-date
- system-config-users: translation missing (#119626)
- system-logviewer: prints an error on startup (#119627)
Noob question here - and forgive me for ranting, but it's just KILLING me!
How do I get the hell out of X? I've become so frustrated with that
damned automatic-restart-x thing that i wanted to resort to violence.
When, out of desparation, I hit ctrl-alt-backspace it keeps reloading
it. When I do that you'd think it would GET THE POINT THAT I WANT OUT!
(arg!.... I feel better now)
