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
Aug 5 17:54:49 Deathwish named: too many timeouts resolving
'www.example.com/A' (in 'example.com'?): disabling EDNS
(where I have replaced the actual domain with "example.com")
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
Missing Dependency: libboost_serialization.so.2 is needed by package
I've looked into the provides for that file and apparently it's "boost"
which is installed.
(one is i386, one is x86_64 -- that's why it's listed twice)
I've read about XMBlackBerry but am unable to get that installed (more
does anyone have good information on making a blackberry work as a tethered
modem on fedora 8?
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.
This is a request for participation:
The KDE-SIG  is atm lacking active contributors. And we really need some
help in doing our job to provide a good KDE version in Fedora - especially
with the upcoming KDE 4.0 and the inclusion in Fedora 9.
If you don't know how you could help us here is a list (which is also in the
* Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged
for Fedora. Package it to improve the user experience.
* Reviewers: Only a few persons are doing the kde-related reviews. Help us
reviewing so that more packages could be included.
* Testers: If you love KDE use the development version or the updates-testing
repository and report bugs, bugs, bugs, request enhancements or features. We
need your feedback to improve KDE.
* Bugs: Become a BugZapper and help us with kde-related bugs.
* Documentation writers: The documentation (esp. the DesktopUserGuide) is
GNOME-centered. Help us to provide an equivalent for KDE.
* Release Notes: The few people that are working on the new KDE-Spin are quite
busy with development issues. If you want to help us in writing the release
notes for the next version of Fedora we would give you all the info you need.
* Wiki: Maintain http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KDE and keep it updated with
end user information.
* Artists: To provide a matching theme for nodoka-metacity-theme and provide
an unified desktop experience.
But this is not a complete list. If you're interested in making KDE in Fedora
better, you're more than welcome.
The list of participants in the wiki is atm not a list of active contributors.
When setting up the wiki the only demand was an interest in KDE to be listed
on this page. This list would be changed in the future to be culled down to
the list of active (or reactivated) participants. This has become necessarely
because there are only (less or more) 3 active contributors atm (plus Than
Ngo). But the list indicates that there are enough people helping with KDE.
If you are interested in joining the KDE-SIG please add your name to this
list, answer to this mail, join us in #fedora-kde at freenode or attend the
weekly KDE-SIG-Meetings (every tuesday 17:00 UTC). I will also add a topic to
the agenda of the meeting next week to introduce new contributors. 
The attendance at the SIG-Meetings is of course not required. But this way we
would know of each other. And they are also the main place of discussing the
next steps in the development (besides fedora-devel-list).
If you have any further questions please answer to this mail or write me
directly. And be sure: If your are willing to help you're welcome (regardless
of your skills). :)
