I observe gnome panel has become a littel unresponsive since the last
update(2.8 to 2.10 - I do not remember when)
After initial login and after a delay in use, gnome panel menus take a few
clicks before responding. I hoped it would go in upgrade.I observed the
same behaviour in gnome 2.12 on suse10.But when I tried Ubuntu live cd
using gnome 2.12, panel was felt as responsive as ever.It appears,it is
something in the FC ( Suse ) core that causes this.
Anybody else has observed this?
I am running FC4 with all the latest Updates applied on a piii
machine.Otherwise my system is stable and fine.
Using Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com/mail/
I'm trying to setup a secure mail environment with Postfix, Dovecot and
Evolution using TLS & SMTP AUTH for sending and receiving email. Made
all the certificates and configs and seem to have it working mostly. The
problem is that Evolution requires me to accept the certificates each
time I start it up. I assume that I need to import one or more of the
certificates I made into Evolution. Anyone have an idea which ones?
Thanks and happy holidays!

I did the ($ yum groupremove "GNOME...etc) command, but it also
removed some weird stuff along... it removed for example,
openoffice.org writer, kdeadmin, openoffice.org langpacks and
why the hell did that happen?

I've tried to update my Fedora Core 2 partition to Fedora Core 4, but the
update failed with the message: "Update ended abnormally".
After this message all deveices have been unmounted, to enable a stop of the
computer. I am happy about the fact that I can still work with my PC, but I
assume that was nothing else then great luck!!!
Because I really don't know why this update has failed, I want to know, where
I can find more informations about the failed update. Does anyone know, where
such a logfile is?
Perhaps a dumb question but here goes:
The FC4 updates lists the following, as an example:
While it is clear that 5.8.6-22 supersedes 5.8.6-18, do both
supersede 5.8.6-16.fc4. In other words, do I simply ignore the .fc4
addition to the file naming?
Thanks and a Merry Christmas to all.
$ k3b -v
growisofs does not execute cleanly for whatever video DVD project I
make to be recorded on a DVD+R disk. (Six new disks wasted by k3b.)
Is there a good alternative to k3b?

Thanks Craig. I didn't know that Google trick.
My $.02 on the main topic of this thread. Requests for assistance should:
1) Have a clear concise statement of the problem as the subject.
2) Should start off with a re-statement of what the problem is that
expands on the subject.
3) If necessary, include the steps the poster has already taken or other
This tends to allow verbose posts to get answered since people who have
some idea of the solution can understand the problem without having to
wade through a lot of material. My time is limited (and I'm guessing so
is everybody else) so I like to be able to *quickly* determine whether I
can help with a particular problem or not.
It would be nice if the Fedora web site were to have an easy to find
"getting help" section that, besides pointing to this list, also
included some hints such as the above for searching and maybe even some
basic stuff like using "man -k" and other tools such as grep to RTFM
