Hi, I just noticed that my drives are no longer showing up in hwbrowser
when I select hard drives.
Anyone else seeing this? I didn't see a bz and will enter one if others
seeing the same thing. This is on current rawhide x86 system, SATA and
IDE drives, no selinux.
The installer is no longer able to start its X server with either
the Intel DG33BU onboard graphics or PCI-E Nvidia 9800gt.

Has anyone else seen this? Most of my installs skip firstboot, but
the few that I've done that don't over the last few days have had a
non-functioning mouse. After completing firstboot and going into X,
though, the mouse works. This is on VMWare Server. I haven't yet
filed a bug since I'm not sure what to file one against.
Fedora Bug Wrangler
I'm running latest Rawhide on Thinkpad X60 (Intel 945) with compiz.
To get compiz working, I had been setting LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 in
my .bash_profile (yeah, I know this is a sledgehammer). Without it, I
just get a very boring "white screen".
But I noticed that compiz has a '--indirect-rendering' option, and
that other programs (like glxgears, openuniverse, ...) seem to work
just fine with direct rendering enabled.
So I removed 'LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1' from my .bash_profile and added
'--indirect-rendering' to compiz lines in .gnome2/session.
All seems to work this way, and glxgears works significantly faster
and openuniverse finally works.
So the question: is this the right way to have this setup? I looked in
gconf settings and compiz-config for this setting, but didn't find it.
Is there a 'compiz quirks file' somewhere?]
Thanks in advance,
The "other guys" (i.e. Mandriva, openSUSE & Ubuntu) also have KDE 4 in
their beta, but they also have the more stable (and useable) KDE 3 as
KDE 4 looks great, but it beyond buggy (I've tried it in all of the above
distros). Fedora is no exception. I was using it yesterday and it's a
disaster. You could spend all day filing bug reports. :)
So why not have KDE 3 also? KDE 4 is not really useable as of yet.
I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.

glxgears works -- yea!
Anything I can do to help this issue? Rather frustrating since the intel
driver is the open source driver everyone recommends.

So here we are. I created a 13Gb iso from the tree (updated today) with the
mkisofs -v -U -J -R -T -f -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -V "Fedora rawhide i386
DVD" -o rawhide_290308.iso /dir_of_rsync_tree
NOTE: the date in the command is two days ago because I tried at that time,
but also today after updating tree (and without changing iso file name) but
with the same install errors (see below).
I'm able to mount the iso created as a loop device in my f8.
I'm able to use this iso image as dvd in qemu-kvm to start an install (I
stopped it after the screen with language selection...).
Then I burned the boot.iso file of the tree on a cdrw.
Then I booted it and chose an hard disk install type.
I point to the partition and dir with the iso file and I see the message
"local install media detected".
Suddenly then I get a traceback.
I attach console screen (installer exited abnormally[1/1]). The screenshot
is only for the latest lines in the screen....
Using Alt+Fkeys I can see respectively these on them (I got all screenshots
with digikam if it can be useful) on various consoles:
3) path to valid iso found (name is rawhide 290308.iso but it was rsynced
today with anaconda-184.108.40.206-1); try to mount; mounted; detected stage2
image on cd
4) iso9660 joliet level 3; unable to load NLS charset utf8; iso9660
extensions: rrip_1991A; isofs: unable to identify cd-rom format; vfs: can't
find an ext2 filesystem on /dev/loop0 (several times);
5) mount, wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0
... (typical other 3 lines when you try to mount a bad file on a loop
So it seems that local hard disk iso image method doesn't work either with
13Gb iso image.... Correct?
Or other suggestions...?
Great job with the Beta. My only problem encountered when installing was
that after checking the disc media with passed, pressing continue gave
the blank error message and ejected the disc.
Booting up again and bypassing the disc check allowed things to proceed
Items that I did not like were the absence of the setting up boot
preference. Of course the default packages are always lacking
applications that I use, so retrieval after the initial install of these
packages was needed.
Things are much faster on this 64 bit Compaq. Nvidia driver of course is
