Wondering something here. I had Grip running just fine, from an ICON on
my desktop. Now it won't come up. I went over the properties selection
that was available even ticking 'run in terminal' and still grip will
not come up. I see it trying but it never surfaces.
However, I can bring up a terminal window and type grip in there, and it
instantly appears along side that window. And will work with whatever
audio I want to play.
My question is, how do I get the ICON to work (again) on my desktop?

I'm running FC2 and I've noticed that the system uses the am/pm
convention to display time, e.g. in file properties. I have managed to
set the clock on the task bar to 24 hour display, but where can I set
the overall system time display to 24 hour?

Oh, just as I had posted this message I found the "Fedora Core 2 test2
SELinux FAQ" at http://mindstorm.ath.cx:8080/fedora-docs/selinux-faq-en/
That clears out many questions, but does anyone have any good reasons why
I should have SELinux turned on? The machine is connected to the internet
just few hours a day and I have all the services off on the
I suppose SELinux provides the ACL mechanism, but I'm not sure I need it
.. afterall it may be a bit overkill for two-user computer. ;)

Two days ago, up2date updated the following packages on my system:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1107358 May 19 21:47 cvs-1.11.15-5.i386.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2718003 May 19 21:49 gaim-0.77-2.FC1.i386.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3056731 May 19 21:51 kdepim-3.1.4-2.i386.rpm

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 826074 May 19 21:54 recode-3.6-12.0.i386.rpm
Immediately after completing these updates, up2date became unusable:

the update of none of the above packages should have caused this behavior,
but one of them abviously did. But which one? Any ideas what has
I'm trying to take a system with an Adaptec 2400A from RHL9 to FC2.
I've seen Chris Dew's of 24 May 2004 and the thread begun by
Brian Truter on 18 May 2004.
In my case, I get failure to mount /mnt/sysimage.
I find files /dev/i2o/hda and /dev/i2o/hdap1 through /dev/i2o/hdap14,
where besides the mysterious "p", all 15 of them are major 80, minor 0.
I get the expected result from
fdisk -l /dev/i2o/hda

I've got machines crashing under FC2 with kernel 2.6.5-1.358. Couldn't
catch the exact kernel messages sorry but here are the rough details.
assertion failed kernel messages.
The ethernet driver is :

I have a Radeon 7000 card on an Athlon system with a SiS motherboard.
I installed Fedora Core 2 on it. X worked all through the install.
When I rebooted the system, the screen goes black and the system hangs.

If I comment out the dri line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, it works fine, but
I do not get hardware acceleration.
Any ideas what is going wrong?
I am running stock Fedora Core 2. The ATI commercial driver will not
work with the 7000 card. (Which I found out *after* I bought it.)

We have a doubt here, we would like to know if it´s a good ideia to expend time to use Fedora like a network server? FTP, Internet, backup, etc.. or would be better to use a Enterprise version?
We used old Red Hat versions.. but.. after upgrade to the Fedora.. We left the use, in true we had no time to think about this.. but.. the moment arrived.. we are having problens with our Linux version in a backup server.. a message "Segmentation Fault" happens all time that we try to use a remote tape unit.. we tried many configurations and corrections.. but nothing looks get work!?
Well, thanks since now!
