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': 188.8.131.52#53

'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 have some ntfs issues. I have two ntfs partition on my laptop, and
Fedora 8 mounts them automatically and I have their shortcuts on gnome
In rawhide I get an error that ntfs partition have some errors on them
and that they can't be mounted because of that...
When I reboot back to Fedora 8 ntfs partitions are mounted and seam to work ok.
I'm not sure if this there ntfs partition actually have errors and
rawhide it detecting them (and fedora 8 is ignoring them) or that
there are no error on ntfs partitions and that rawhide has some bugs
regarding ntfs mounting...
Any idea on how to troubleshoot this is welcome.

where is gdmsetup or what is the replacement?
$ rpm -q gdm
$ locate gdmsetup ; grep gdmsetup `locate gdmsetup`
in f7 it is part of gdm:
$ rpm -qf /usr/sbin/gdmsetup
I tried out today's boot.iso and things got further. It appears that the
install was successful using encrypted raid 1 partitions. (This used
to fail.) But when I tried to boot the system, I wasn't asked for
a password. During the boot process /dev/root couldn't be mounted. Things
continued for a short while and then hung up after some usb devices
For a problem like this, what component should be used?
