In http://www.python.org/2.4/rpms.html there are RPM packages for FC3,
and a Yum repository provided by python.org (hey! so far FC3 is the only
distro with RPMs provided by python.org itself!)
I'd like to know if anybody have installed these packages, and if they
fit pleasently into FC3. As Fedora uses Python *heavely*, I don't want
to break anything.
So, it's safe to install this, or I'd be better waiting for an official
update? (assuming there are plans for such an update...)
I would like to know if there is an input method in scim which could
provide roman transliteration letters: I need vowel with macron,
consonnant with upper and underdot etc.
I have found "latin pre" and "latin post" virtual keyboard but they do
not provide all composed letters I need. Is it possible to add some
There is also an "unicode" and "utf-8" keyboard: is there a
configuration method of scim which could allow to define keyboard short
cuts giving the letter corresponding to a code; for example, I define
"Alt a" short cut with u+0101 and get a lowercase a-macron, "Alt A" will
give uppercase a macron, and so on.
Thank you for attention and (I hope) answer.

I installed scim to write some exotic scrips and it works quite good but
there is a problem that took me a long time to understand (and solve):
the assignation of the variable GTK_IM_MODULE to scim.
This is done when scim is running (for me at start time) and this makes
some applications crash: acroread, gxine (but not xine), realplayer....
I had to modify (or create) a script for these apps which unset first
My question is: why scim cannot run smoothly with other applications?
I have another question, maybe off topics (but scim commes with fedora),
is there a keyboard in scim for transliteration of other scripts in
roman script? I mean a virtual keyboard which allow you to add letter
with diacritical marks (macron, underdots, overdots and so on.

I did some googling earlier looking for info on triple booting Fedora,
XP and Vista. I found some good info where everything is contained all
on one drive, but I have 4 sata drives that I'll be using.
I have an 80G for XP, and 80G for Vista, a 160 for Fedora, and a 250
for data storage.
Has anyone else worked at triple booting in this way?
The one guide suggests using the windows bootloader to let you handle
xp and vista and grub can get you into fedora. Ideally I'l like to use
grub for all three.Should I make my fedora drive sda then in this
Anyone else done this and have ideas?
Thanks to the list, I am now able to play an audio sound and recording
from my Fedora 5 box to warn out our night crew of a problem (play
[filename].wav/ogg). I also would like to connect a warning light or
strobe to the system to provide visual warning. In addition to lan, I
have serial and usb ports available on my system.
Does anyone know of such a product? And how to trigger it to alert from
Fedora? Needless to say, also need way to turn if off from the Fedora.
I didnt get any response to my first query, so
I'm asking again. Apologies if you replied and
I missed it - please re-send.
I have a system with about 50 SCSI drives spread across
5 buses, mostly with 1 ext3 filesystem per drive.
After a crash I decided to accept the boot-time offer
to fsck them. About half a dozen proceeded to be checked
simultaneously, but thereafter the rest went off one by one.
Is this a bug? Should fsck be able to handle this many in
parallel? Or should it do things in smaller parallel chunks?
I have to confess that I'm running RHEL4 and my e2fsck
version is still 1.35, 28-Feb-2004. Maybe someone knows
that this has been fixed in a later version.
My fstab has a '2' in the 6th position for all filesystems
except root, which has a '1' as instructed in 'man fstab'
Some Thinkpads with Radeon video cards have a suspend issue that requires
loading the radeonfb kernel module in the initrd. When this happens, the
radeon xorg driver refuses to display at any resolution other than
640x480. Everything works normally (except for the suspend problem) when
the radeonfb is not loaded.
Anyone else seeing this? Any solution? Is it an xorg bug or a kernel

If anybody knows the magic xorg.conf hack I'd be very happy to hear it.
