Hello all. I have just looked at the rawhide x86_64-fedora tree and saw that
the x86_64_kernel is pretty dated. I am running a VIA K8T800 chipset with
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ and 1 gig of ram. I was going to net install using that
bootable .iso but I am concerned about that fedora kernel being from April
2003 (most all other packages are from Nov27th 2003). Are there any plans
for Fedora Core 64, is there a wait until the 2.6 kernel makes it out
(hopefully this month).. Any feedback would be appreciated. btw: Fedora's
desktop is the best that I have used. Looking forward working with this
project. My 32 bit machine is happily running Fedora with no problems.
1. how can i change the default browser of evolution (mozilla) to
epiphany, so that links in mails will get openend via epiphany?
2. how can i (or can i at all) change the icons of all files of same
sort (like folders, mp3s etc.) without having to change the whole
3. when i copy files from win-pcs over the network via smb:/// in
nautilus, copying works, but at the end a pop-up screen appears saying
"you don't have the permission to change the file or it's parent
directory" which is kind of funny because i just _copied_ it. after
clicking "abort", the file nevertheless won't get deleted on my pc and
seems to work well. i never had those problems in rh8 or rh9, so this is
a bug, right?!
4. does someone know if there's anything in dev. so that you finally can
stream from smb-shares via nautilus?
5. i tried to install the svg-themes over from
seemed to compile and install fine (i installed both
packages-"librsvg-2.4 and "gnome-themes-extras-0.4" following the resp.
install-instructions, i.e. running "configure" before), now what...?
i mean, do those extra themes are supposed to show up in the regular
theme-manager (which, in my case, they do not!), or do i have to do
somehow manually use them-would be nice if someone could fill me in!
also, afaik, there are currently no rpms of these themes for fc1, so it
would be cool (because some of the themes look really awesome imo) if
one of the rep.-maintainers could make one.
thx for any help!
So, I'm trying to set up a system here at work that uses LDAP for
central user auth, for both posix (nss_ldap) users, and for samba
users. For even more fun, I plan on automounting the user's home dirs
(and possibly other shares). These automounts will be based on the
login name and the password supplied at login time. I've found a tool
named pam_mount, that is supposed to take the password given at login
time and re-apply it later for mounting volumes. The problem is that
the documentation is extremely sparse, and I've no clue whether or not
it works with nss_ldap.
Do any of you fine folks know of a way that I can have a user's home dir
mounted at login time, based upon their login name and the password
they provided at login time? I'm trying to get around the insecurities
of NFS and host-based spoofs, by requiring that extra login before you
get the file system. Please don't suggest NIS(+) or NFS, unless you
have a way of securing NFS so that it requires a password as well as a
correct host, but can be done at login time, using LDAP user/pass.

I have one question
Why Fedora installer with everything turned off installs the following
When I turn off everything I need a system that is minimal (knows how to
boot and find devices)
This is the freedom of Gentoo.
I would be very happy to apply this word to Fedora in this situation.
Of course I can remove all the unnecessary packages but why should I
finding those packages?
I would be glad to hear your comments about that.
Maybe in Fedora Core 2
we will have the ability to install truely minimal system.
I am looking at setting up a NAS trype server to provide a shared
storage facility to my other servers..
So to connect from the Servers to the NAS box I will be using either NFS
or Samba and seeing that it will be a linux only environment I figured
NFS would probably be the way to go..
From the tests I have done this morning it would seem that Samba is far
faster (3x) than NFS in terms of write speed and about the same in terms
of read speed.. I know that Samba probably comes fairly well optimised
out of the box but I think NFS could probably do with some tuning..
I have tried mounting with rsize=8192,wsize=8192 but this didn't make
Anyone got any ideas or links to good NFS tuning sites.. (the how-to on
nfs.sourceforge.net didn't help me much)
