Did this help?
FWIW, I now have an FC3 package of the new BitTorrent 4.0.0 client (no
longer a beta) at:
I want to create a restricted user without password that can only use
a web browser.
I added a user named "visitor" and created in his home dir a file
.xsession that contains:
so that when he logs in, firefox is launched, and when he closes
firefox, he is logged out.
This works fine but he is still able to ctrl+alt+F(1-6) and log in to
browse the file system.
To prevent that, I tried to set /bin/false as the default shell for
that user in /etc/passwd but this also prevented him to log in
Is there a way to be sure that "visitor" will only be able to browse
the web and not the file system ? any security issues ?
Thanks for help
I have just purchased an Audigy 2 soundcard (this one:
I have an Asus A7V333 motherboard which has onboard sound, but there
is no way to disable the onboard sound in the BIOS (all the
information I could find indicated that the onboard sound would be
turned off automatically if there was a soundcard plugged in, but this
doesn't seem to be the case).
Gnome doesn't detect the soundcard at all, it doesn't appear in any of
the system tools and, even after I manually added entries to
modprobe.conf I am still stuck with only my onboard soundcard. The
snd_emu10k1 module is getting loaded, it appears when I lsmod, but no
sound card device is created.
It does seem that the kernel knows the card is there, it just doesn't
seem to know what it is:
#/sbin/lspci | grep Creative
00:0e.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs: Unknown device 0008
#/usr/sbin/kudzu -p --class=AUDIO
desc: "Creative Labs: Unknown device 0008"
desc: "C-Media Electronics Inc CM8738"
So I'm thinking there will be a config file somewhere where I can
explain that the snd_emu10k1 is the driver for deviceid 0008? Does
anyone know where that is - or am I barking up the wrong tree. (BTW -
currently running 2.6.10-1.770_FC3 because I couldn't get fglrx to
work with the 2.6.11 kernel).
I have a strange problem. There's a computer on the network
that are connected to a printer via Samba and another one by
JetDirect (on port 9100). The computer used to be on FC2
and could print on either printer fine. After upgrading to FC3,
however, it stopped sending jobs to the printers.
More precisely, it still sends jobs to the printers, but nothing
comes out on the other end. There are no error messages or
anything. It's just a black hole.
I am totally at a loss at this point...
I am trying to install a piece of software that requires the gtkglarea
libraries, is there an rpm for these for FC3? I couldn't find one. I guess
this has been removed from the core 3 distribution, are there any
incompatibilities I should be aware of?

I'm looking for a list of "extras" mirrors.
I alredy have enough "base" ones in my yum.conf.
I need ocaml and python-imaging, that are both in extras.
I saw this could be one:
but it indicates a main mirror (xxx.redhat.com) and i dont want to
overload the main mirrors.
would you know some others, or do i need to check one by one all the
available mirrors here
to find onethat could suit me?

Is there any good music editor software, maybe that also has some sounds and stuff you can put in, much like Frooty Loops for Windows? Just wondering what the good ones are before I start downloading. I'm hoping to find one for free, as I just want to play around with it. Thanks.
I need to resize my monitor resolution to make the icons appear small.
In the "preference" >> "screen resolution" I can only see 800 X 600 with
60 Hz. The other one is with 640 X 480 which is even worst.
Can anyone help me with this.
