Since nobody else have post problems with the boot process,
execpt people with a dell c600 laptop a one other, I would
ask this way.
Is there anybody else, who don´t saw the "boot:" promt
from the installation/help menue after boot from the
first cd, and/or results in an dot "." in the next line
afer press any key?
Some of the dicussions about this you can found here:
After a few tests, I think the problem could be brake
down to the point, that it doesen´t work with the actually
version of isolinux 3.07 for the boot process.
It can be a problem with a bug/incompatibility in the dell´s
BIOS, but I´m also found this guy with a complete differen hardware,
an Via C3 system, more about this found here:
>>> I don´t know if the newer version 3.08 pre XXX fix this, but
with a substitution of ISOLINUX 2.11 FROM AN OLDER FC3
installation cd I could SOLVE THIS PROBLEM completely! <<<
Only the change of the isolinux.bin file is enough.
So my question for the fedora team. Is it very nessesary to
use the newer version of isolinux or is it possible to go
one step back to an 2.xx version? I know, since 3.xx there
where many new thinks added but did we realy need them?
Many other distributions use the 2.xx tree.
First of all: what is this thing? Is it some kind of system to play
movies in presentations etc? In that case: great!
Then: It claims support for a dozen different media formats, such as:
Is this correct? How does it play contnent? The best would probably be
gstreamer (adding a gstreamer plugin would then make it work in
openoffice, totem etc.).
It is found in (writer as example) Tools -> Media Player

This brings up a very important topic for discussion.
Namely why is Fedora not shipping fortune. Agreed there might be some
But a program like fortune could be easily written and licensed under
And I guess few will be already available.
Just check with the number of .sig quotes in various mailing lists.
There you see the usage of fortune cookie.
It's a useful program and I would like to vote for its inclusion with
Fedora, so that users don't have the trouble to download it separately.
Please provide your suggestions and how can we go about.
Is it possible that FC2 fsck.ext3 wrill not be able to verify
the FC4 partitions, and therefore it will not be able to mount
FC4 partitions into FC2? (Multiboot, cross mounting of user
areas while transitioning).
FC2 could not boot smoothly while a FC4T2 partition was in
Taking again the thread about the SSH brute force attacks, but with a
We have a nice tool called system-config-securitylevel, why isn't it
possible to indicate some ips or ranges there an click to "stealth" so,
this port is just visible to the indicated ip-adresses??
i want to set up my hard drive to have three partitions one is the
windows xp home partition, one will be my main Linux partition (for
fedora core ) and the other will be a testing ground partition so i can
test out latest fedora core tests and or try out other Linux
distributions with it. i am going to use the mandrake installer to
format and resize my hardrive but what should i set the two Linux
partitions as what file system? and will it be easy to delete and
overwrite a Linux partition that i will use for testing?

I've got a new AMD64 system which I installed FC4 test2 on. After installation
finished and rebooted the kernel just hung. It seems there is a problem with the
kernel released last week (ref: http://www.livejournal.com/users/wtogami/). I've
got hold of the latest kernel which is supposed to work (from the same link
above). I've managed to get the kernel rpm (kernel-2.6.11-1.1276_FC4.x86_64.rpm
) over to my damaged FC4T2 system (had to use a gentoo live cd, since the
rescuecd just crashed when I tried to enable network, and I could not mount the
cdrom in rescue mode). Anyway, trying to install the kernel rpm package in the
chrooted environment (chroot /mnt/sysimage) just ends up with rpm saying it
depends on initscripts and won't install.
What can I do to fix this? I need to install this kernel to boot the system.

After running the updates from Friday around 3pm, I seem to be crashing on bootup. Everything looks fine until it gets to clvmd. It fails to load, which is no big deal but then it goes to a black screen. It stays on this black screen for a minute or two and then I hit CTRL-ALT-Delete. It will bring me back to the Services screen and says "NFS lockup: [Failed]." It then sits there for about 30 seconds and goes back to the black screen. I give it a few minuts and then hit CTRL-ALT-Delete again and it doesn't do anything. I have to manually shut down the computer. I have tried previous kernels.
I can log into WinXP fine, so I guessing it isn't a hardware failure, which was my first thought.
