I've done a simple Entity/Relationship Diagram in Dia and when I came to
print it lines were missing. Initially, I thought this was a Dia problem
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332795) but I then thought to
test it with FC4.
Under FC4 however it prints correctly.
So I've uploaded the PostScript of the diagram (which displays
correctly) and wondered if anyone could try it to see if they could
reproduce the problem and/or suggest what's at fault.
It's at http://homepage.ntlworld.com/leon.stringer/fedora/output.ps
The problem I see is that the main part of the lines connecting the
MEMBER entity to the one above and below are missing (although the 'A'
part of the "crows foot" shows).
I'm printing to an HP DeskJet 990Cxi.
Thanks in advance,
I seem to remember someone posting to the list regarding problems with
installing from a USB interfaced DVD reader/writer. I could not find the
previous post. I did however find the problem when attempting to install
FC5T3 on two different SBC systems using a Memorex DVD reader/writer.
I am able to install the FC5T2 installation from DVD. I checked the
burned DVD using the USB DVD recorder/player and it passed the media test.
The FC5T5 install fails in both GUI and text modes. FC5T2 installs fine
on the same computers and with the same DVD device and brand of blank
DVD's used for the burn.
I filed a bug report but I thought I'd ask if others are having similar
failures and what boot options could be issued to bypass the recently
introduced error, if any workarounds available.
I was doing a test install of rawhide today (2006-02-28) and ran into a
traceback/crash from pirut.
Pirut doesn't like clicks that select packages. :-(
kyum is a workaround.

I am confused by the NFS install procedure. I have done
it on two machines, with mixed impressions. In each case the host ran
For the first one, I am 99% sure all I did was copy all 6 iso images
into a directory, NFS serve that, and start a second machine installing
using 1 CD. And it worked.
For the second, I tried the same, and it said the directory did not
contain a Fedora installation. So I read the README, which says to
unpack the iso files. I really don't think I did that the first time,
but never mind. Done. The installation started, then complained there
was no 'repomd' information. So I copied that as well - but if it is
needed it should be in the README.
Which is correct? Am I dreaming that unpacking the ISO was not needed?
During my FC5T2 install I had no issues with video, this time around the
installer started with part of the top missing (lines going through).
Also after changing my monitor in the install to 1920x1200 I could not
select that mode without taking the color rate down to thousands. On a
successful install the startx screen also has the right 1/4th of the
screen covered with horizontal lines.
Also during the install proccess after reboot I chose to use winbind
authentication. When I finally booted and ran setup, winbind was
selected for user info but not user authentication. For some reason the
settings got wipped. Even after setting stuff back up its still not
allowing me to authenticate.
The error I get in the logs is "Got invalid request length: 0"
I have just setup a machine solely for the purpose of testing, I shall
append the specs to this post. For now, I have yummed to updates-released,
adn then updates-testing. What do I do as a tester? I have no familiarity
with the processs, just the will to help.

I have a mouse problem, but I am using NVidia, and it happens with a
Microsoft USB Optical Mouse as well as a Microsoft PS/2 ball mouse.
With mine, the mouse_over and mouse clicks stop working.
I have found that sometimes ALT-TAB will reactivate it.

Also, the problem doesn't affect non-optical mice. I have a Dell
branded USB mouse which works properly.
I'll try to get my hands on another brand of optical mouse later, and
see if it's specific to the Logitech brand.
For the first time since installing FC5T3, I loaded TvTime, which reported
no /dev/video and no signal. lsmod shows the the em28xx kernel module is
not loaded. I did:
[root@Gretchen jpearson]# /sbin/modprobe em28xx
FATAL: Error inserting em28xx
Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
with dmesg showing:

The device in question is Haupauge WinTV USB2. The device and setup are
verified running using either FC4 or Ubuntu.
Is there some other information that I need? My search of bugzilla and the
last couple of months of the archives showed me nothing.
Where and to whom do I need to file a report?
What are the requirements to try and get a module added to the Fedora kernel?
I use a USB device to control relays and detect digital IO on various
equipment and it would be great to see support for these in the kernel -
so I don't have to hack away for hours to get it working.
The driver is based on the lego driver - so I don't see any reasons why it
wouldn't be allowed...
