This may be a dumb question, but why can't Redhat distribute NVIDIA binary
In NVIDIA's licence (http://www.nvidia.com/object/nv_swlicense.html) it
"2.1.2 Linux Exception. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of Section
2.1.1, SOFTWARE designed exclusively for use on the Linux operating system
copied and redistributed, provided that the binary files thereof are not
modified in any
way (except for unzipping of compressed files)."
So, what's keeping RedHat from putting the drivers in the distribution? If
it's a GPL
thing, would it be easy to just download it during installation or at
least give the option to the user?
Ok, I have had Yarrow working well for a while now, but yesterday I
started experiencing some odd issues with my mouse. All of a sudden it
stops working correctly. The only thing that seems to fix is to kill X
and run mouse-test, then restart.
Also, I have FC 1 running on a desktop which is hooked up to a KVM
switch. Whenever I go to another PC, and return, the same thing
happens, the mouse goes crazy.

I have the same symptoms...
rpcinfo says that nfs et.al. are running.
Something has changed in test 2, since the same PC running RH9
accesses that host just fine.
Over the past couple of weeks I've been getting lots of messages like
this in my logs:
unexpected RCODE (SERVFAIL) resolving 'example.com/A/IN': 126.96.36.199#53

This happens on MANY domains, not just a few, and on domains that I
would think would NOT be likely to have stupid problems (like Google and
Has something changed in BIND that could cause this?
I'm trying to use my blackberry as a tethered modem and am having some
difficulties, I'm not quite sure how to set this up in the first place which
is probably the majority of my problem
I've installed "barry" but am unable to get barry-utils installed because of

I've looked into the provides for that file and apparently it's "boost"
which is installed.

I've read about XMBlackBerry but am unable to get that installed (more

Recently, I've noticed that after logging in, a RAID-1 volume is
displayed two times. The same two hdd icons, the same Name, the same
"Properties" are displayed.
When I choose "Unmount Volume" via the context menu, the second icon
stays on the desktop. All its details in the properties dialog change
to "Volume: home", and indeed the details for my /home partition are
displayed. The "Name" is wrong though, as it's still the size of the
RAID-1 volume. When I want to unmount the volume (just as a test) I'm
asked "Do you want to empty the trash before you umount?" and the
dialog explains what that would yield. If I choose not to empty the
trash and proceed, there is an error dialog "Cannot unmount volume -
The volume is not mounted" (sure, it's /home). When I mount the RAID-1
volume again, both desktop icons refer to it again.
Some desktop component gets confused.
