I'm seeing weird Synaptics touchpad behavior on the HP Compaq nx6125
with FC4 X86_64 (updated to latest). A tap on the touchpad generates
sometimes Button1, sometimes Button 2 events, I think more often
Button2, which makes it quite difficult to use. Is there something to
tune for this, or is this a known one? Under Windows it seemed to work ok.
Thanks for any input!
I'd like to walk through my mp3 directory and subdirectories and convert
all my files to ogg and put them in a the same structure under a
different directory. Is there something that does this? maybe someone
could offer a script, I'm not as bash literate as some of you. Thanks !
I need to install Java on my FC4. I dont want to install it outside of
any yum or at least RPM packaging.
I know the sun website provides some rpm.
What about it? it's just for college/studies use, nothing really
What about Jikes, Blackdown,... what do you use?
Most of the people arroud me use the sun java. I would like to have a
pretty similar way of byte compiling (just javac), so that I can follow
the teaching. Dont want something exotic... :-)

I have two linux boxes at home: FC3 and FC4. I am logging into the
FC4 box from FC3 and the time from issuing the 'ssh ....' command until
I see the password prompt is 36 seconds. As I am new to this I have no
idea where to begin looking for the cause of the delay.
I can login into the FC4 box from my wife's OS X Mac with virtually
Pointers please on where to begin looking for the hangup.
I'm unable to unmount any cd in the last couple of days. CD's auto or
manually mount with no problems. But when I try to unmount get message
device is busy. I've gone through processes running in KDE SystemGuard
and killed all process showing accessing /dev/hdc, even killed
konquerer. I've even changed FSTAB to noauto,ro,users, but to no avail.
My systems were working with no issues, 1 is a laptop that has been
running fc3 for over 6 months. I'm running KDE 3.3. I don't seem to
have this problem in GNOME.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OK, I'm a usenet junkie. Leafnode (a tiny local news server) sits
between the LAN and the ISP's news server. It does lots of nifty things
in the background and provides an exquisitely simple, yet highly
effective, RegEx filter/killfile.
Maybe it's just me but Linux news clients don't seem to handle posts to
moderated groups very gracefully. When posting to NANAB, for example,
knode sort of hangs until it times out, showing the post as failed and
leaving it in the outbox. With leafnode, that problem is gone (or at
least not visible).
Leafnode is suitable as a stand-alone, to take advantage of the

There are links to the RPM I compiled (the Fedora Extras RPM is
outdated) and a simplified configuration file (the distributed config
seems spectacularly disorganized).
