The FC3 hotplug aotumatically mounts a USB disk. After mounted, It
become case insensitive, for example,
I made a dir as 'mkdir SRC_1', if I ls it, it show src_1.
How to mount the USB disk case sensitive?
After performing a yum clean packages and then a yum clean all, my FC3
system started slowing down. I would press a key and wait a few
seconds for a response. Then it was a minute wait. Then it was
I had to shut it down with 'the switch' to get back to where I am now.
But the truth is, although this happened after cleaning yum, this is
not the first time that it has happened to me. I had Opera, konsole,
kmail, and konqerer open at the time.
I can hear the hard disk crunching away whenever that happens. The
computer is an AMD Duron machine with 512 megs of SDram. Note that I
can move the mouse and the pointer keeps up with me. Other than that-
Any ideas what to look for? I will try to keep track of what is
running when this happens, when it happens again.
I see that I have about 2 gigs of my 10 gig partition left. I went
hunting for bloat and fund that /var is almost 2 gigs and /usr is
almost 4! Does this sound reasonable for a desktop installation? I
also found that /selinux 0 bytes big despite the fact that it does
contain files and folders. And there is a /srv directory that is
empty, along with /proc that is about 500 megs. What are /src and
/proc? Should /usr and /var be so big?
When I boot my machine after a power down, I get the following message...
"Your system appears to have shut down uncleanly Press Y within 5 seconds to
force file system integrity check"
How can I make this automatically say "yes" everytime?
I have a handful of machines running Linux (mostly FC3) and Windows (2K
and XP). On my laptop I have FC3. I'm having a lot of problems with
keeping drives "mapped" or mounted. Here's what I'm currently doing.
On all the linux machines samba is installed, and my userid has admin
access to root so I can get to the whole drive and pretty much do what I
want. On windows I just use the admin shares.
On my laptop I'm running autofs and have all the mounts setup in
auto.misc. Right now I'm using fstype=smbfs. The problem is that
sometimes the mount will get hosed up, maybe the other machine crashed
or was not accessible for one reason or another. When this happens I
have to try and figure out how to kill whatever process is hosing it up
so I can try to restart autofs. Sometimes I can do it, other times I
can't. When I can't have to logout or restart completely, very annoying.
On a Windows machine it will not have a problem with the same share.
Windows appears to do a better job of handling this situation. It seems
to more easily reconnect automatically.
Besides that problem, I've also had problems copying large amounts of
data over these mount points. I don't have any exact errors to quote at
the moment, but they fail consistently.
I've looked at NFS as an option as well, but I've had permission issues
with that. I'd like to have full access on the drives. Creating a samba
share and granting admin access fits what I want.
Can anyone suggest any better ways of doing this? I hate to compare it
to windows but on my windows machines I can map the same shares on any
of my other windows machines or Linux machines (using samba), and the
mappings are always accessible or reconnect once the machine in question
Any help is appreciated.

I am posting this just to see if anyone has a clue. I got the following
errors when trying to do a netboot to reinstall on a Cobalt RaQ. Anyway,
I know it's not Fedora specific, but thought maybe someone may
understand the error stuff, as the Cobalt OS is a Linux based one.
hdc : bad access : block = 1067788, Count = 2
end_request : I/O error, dev 16:00, sector 1067788
Thanx if anyone can steer me in the right direction. Cheers.
I am very excited about the soon release of Fedora Core 4. However, I
want to upgrade from Fedora Core 3 in an easier way than doing the
procedure that is required for the first install you do, downloading
all of the ISOs, then burning them to discs, and then use Disk Druid
to erase partition (and all of my lovely data) and recreate it.
I hear of alot of people saying that they upgraded, and am curious
about how it is done.
