we teach about opensource at our university, and I would love to
demonstrate to my students how to do BugZapping. I have a couple of
1) There are about 50 of them. If I request each one to make a Fedora
account, it's going to be a lot of accounts and lots of potential
complications. What should I do? Can all of them work simultaneously
on one account?
2) I plan to focus on finding duplicates and triaging radeon-related
stuff, because it's quite easy to explain stuff there (KMS/UMS,
xf86-video-radeon/radeonhd, card generations etc.), but I don't want
to limit myself to that. Any other suggestions what to work on?
I need help debugging a system hang on my Dell Intel (Core2 Quad CPU Q6600)
system with an Intel 82G33/G31. I recently upgraded from F11 to F13b
((126.96.36.199-57.fc13.i686.PAE) and now my system locks up when I play
with OpenGL rendering enabled. See bug 586623 for details:
I got netconsole working on the system and then added "drm.debug=0x6"
to the linux boot line. Here is what came out on the remote console before
What should I do next?
I didn't have time to fool with the test day for video, but I have
finally gotten around to checking out my personal collection
of ATI cards with latest fedora 13 updates, with these results:
RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)]
My main system uses an RV410 PCIE card. Lots of stuff works
fine on fedora 13 (in fact everything I actually use works
fine). If I stress the card using the mesa-demos gltestperf
test, the whole system locks up and has to be power cycled.
This doesn't appear to have changed in f13, same thing happens
Radeon R100 QD [Radeon 7200]
This is an insanely ancient card (an original ATI
All-In_Wonder). Fedora 12 was the peak of performance for this
card. It actually worked a little. With Fedora 13, all I get is
a "No Signal" message from my monitor. (Which is all I got for
several releases prior to f12 as well :-).
RV280 [Radeon 9200] (rev 01)
I think I remember trying this with the live CD in f12 with
very little success. It works better in fedora 13. It can
handle KMS, it can handle turning on compiz, but it starts
going funny in the head when I push things a bit:
I've a strange issue with an NFS mount on a F13-Beta.
The nfs server is a RHELv4 system. The exports contains....
This is mounted just fine on a F11 system whose fstab contains...
misty:/ /home/egreshko/misty nfs4 rw
On the F13 system the fstab contains....
192.168.0.55:/ /media/test nfs4 rw
Now the weirdness, on the F13 system....
[egreshko@f13 media]$ ls -l
drwx------. 170 nobody nobody 8192 Apr 25 10:22 test
[egreshko@f13 media]$ ls -n
drwx------. 170 99 99 8192 Apr 25 10:22 test
[egreshko@f13 media]$ touch test/x
[egreshko@f13 media]$ ll test/x
-rw-rw-r--. 1 nobody nobody 0 Apr 25 10:23 test/x
[egreshko@f13 media]$ ls -n test/x
-rw-rw-r--. 1 99 99 0 Apr 25 10:23 test/x
If I go to the RHELv4 system or the F11 system I see....
[egreshko@meimei misty]$ ll x
-rw-rw-r--. 1 egreshko egreshko 0 2010-04-25 10:23 x
[egreshko@meimei misty]$ ls -n x
-rw-rw-r--. 1 500 500 0 2010-04-25 10:23 x
I'm thinking it must be related to the idmapd process....
I find it strange that the log file shows....
rpc.idmapd: nss_getpwnam: name 'egreshko@localdomain' does not map
into domain 'greshko.com'
[root@f13 etc]# hostname
[root@f13 etc]# host f13.greshko.comf13.greshko.com has address 192.168.0.196
and the idmapd.conf contains....
Domain = greshko.com
Since this works fine on F11, and I'm pretty sure it worked just fine
when testing on F12, it would seem to be something with F13....unless
I'm missing something.
I can't seem to preupgrade to f13-beta. Is this just a mirror problem
and waiting a while longer will fix it or is preupgrade not supposed to
work before the final release? I've tried "yum clean all" and it still
comes up with this error.
