I've just joined, been reading selected archives.
I've been thinking it would be cool to be able to create a DVD by
unrolling the first CD and them making a DVDsized ISO with the others
in, maybe, /ISO.
The logic in Anaconda to deal with ISO images is in place, (maybe
temporily absent but returning), has been since RTL 7.x, I guess that
all that's needed is for it to be told to look there, much as it already
does for product.img, updates & c.

With the new kernel (2.6.14-1.1719_FC5), and a little help from 'pnpacpi=off', I am writing this
report on system that has newly regained its audio capacities.

You can currently download the kernel source , run xconfig to set 8 K stacks
and compile your own custom kernel. This article I think is talking about
dropping that option to use 8 K stacks. I wanted to know if Redhat will be
doing that. I am not against it, I just want to know how long I have to
decide what card I buy next that is going to be supported in the kernel long
term. There don't seem to be a lot of options. I don't see any DLINK,
LInksys, Netgear or Belkin wireless drivers listed in system-config-network.
Has the 'location' for the firmware for ipw2200 changed recently?
I've been getting '-2' failures when booting for firmware:
Nov 29 09:08:28 localhost kernel: ipw2200: ipw-2.4-boot.fw load
failed: Reason -2
Nov 29 09:08:28 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2
but when I copy all the .fw files from /lib/firmware to
/lib/firmware/ipw2200, it loads properly.
I'm running latest rawhide kernel (2.6.14-1.1719_FC5) and ipw-2.4 firmware.
Did I miss something in the release notes?
I'm using FC5t1, kernel 2.6.14-1.1719_FC5 and udev-075-4.
I have DVB card which works okay, but I would like to change default file
ownership from root:root to kimmo:video for /dev/dvb*
I have added OWNER and GROUP parameters to the /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules
Both user and group exist, but udev does not change ownership properly:
$ ls -lR /dev/dvb
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 200 Nov 29 20:59 adapter0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 1 Nov 29 20:59 audio0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 6 Nov 29 20:59 ca0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 4 Nov 29 20:59 demux0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 5 Nov 29 20:59 dvr0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 3 Nov 29 20:59 frontend0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 7 Nov 29 20:59 net0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 8 Nov 29 20:59 osd0
crw------- 1 root video 212, 0 Nov 29 20:59 video0
Is this udev problem or something else? If I remember correctly, I used the
same kind of rule with FC4 and it worked okay.
I've managed to get FC1T1 installed on the "work1" machine!
It took the "vga=0x310" parameter on the command line to get GRUB to
boot properly. The "nofb" did *not* help the problem in the least.
Udev is now rawhide of 2005-11-28 (75-4) and initializing takes a
reasonable length of time (not too long).
Without the vga= parameter, grub would boot, and the system
would continue to the point of "initializing hardware". The screen
would become garbage, and the system would freeze.
System config: MSI mobo with Celeron (Coppermine) CPU @ 500MHz
512 MB RAM, Trident Cyberblade/i1 video (AGP), VIA Chipset, 6GB IDE
disk, zip drive (IDE), cd-rw, dvd-rom, onboard sound, etc....
I can even make it boot properly with the ATI Rage 128XL PCI card by
re-writing the xorg.conf file.
It still doesn't detect an ISA 3c509 PnP ethernet card. :-(
The BIOS sees it fine, but to config it I have to run
system-config-network and hand install eth1 as a 3c509. Kudzu doesn't
see the card at all apparently.

I don't know... I got this message.
I just saw something on the list about someone who didn't
get their default route. Just before I got this msg.
BTW. I had downloaded that AI talk, and I'm just listenning to it
