Are there any rpm'd FC4 kernels for nvidia's driver? I know, evil closed
source driver, but AFAIK, I'll need it for using Cedega (transgaming).
Figure closed source driver is better then dealing with multi-booting XP
with FC. ;)

I have noticed that if I have installed say two packages - A.tgz
(source) and B.rpm, and now I want to install C.rpm (depending on both A
and B), the installer doesn't find the (installed) dependency A.
So I think that configure by default uses different paths than rpm and
I should pass some parameters, like

Have a strange problem here...
I have upgraded to FC5 test this morning. I have backed up my virtual
servers via virtualmin / webmin. After the new install of my FC5 test system
I restored my virtual servers, made changes to Postfix to listen to a non
default port (25) for mail. My mail gets delivered to the correct user on my
server and sit there to be fetched. I started up dovecot and made sure that
it listens to all sources for incoming connection. I made sure by telnet
into my port 143 and 110, all good. I configured my email client and ran the
"test settings" option, all good. But it simply doesn't download the email
from the server, while I know for a fact there is about 10 email in my mail
folder on the server.
Any help will be appreciated.

Sorry - I meant to include it and left this one out: (note that when I
restart the network the 1 GB card restarts as a 100 MB, not 1GB,
card...), Almosting nothing really - here's the only entry from the
logs (and this set of 3 occurs only ONCE over several days...):

I got a very strange problem with FF, that I was hoping some of you may have
an answer to...
In short; On my Fedora system, I have FF as my default browser, and it is
working very nicely, except for one thing... When I click a link in any
web-page it usually takes forever to load, unless, I click on it again!
It is not a heart-stopping problem, I admit, but it still annoys me a bit...
I'm having a server which I suspect will have a drive failure real soon,
since its been remounting the partition(ext3) read-only a few times, and
I have to do fsck -c on it and then reboot to be able to write to it,
and its coming more often.
So, so prevent this I ordered 2 new disks(200gb) which I intend to
replace the faulty one with.
My plan is the following, and I would appreciate if someone could give
me some insights or hints on it whether it would work.
1. install one new drive as a mirrored software raid with one missing disk.
2. either mount the old drive as readonly manually and then use dd to
move everything to the new md0 disk.
3. install bootloader on the new disk.
4. remove the faulty disk and boot on the new md0
5. install the second new disk and add it to the md0.
Would this be possible at all, I havent tried it in practice yet, but
will probably to it on a live server which will bring it to a certain
Will it be a problem that the old disk is 80gb and the new ones are 200?
Can I grow the ext3 partitions later on when its finally migrated?
Can anyone foresee any other possible problems? :)
Thanks in advance,

There has been:
But it is quite old now, and may be things have changed.
My goal is to install-remove a RPM with only python, no shell script.

Like many others, I've been struggling to get FC4
installed onto an external USB drive. This seems like
it would be a great method to recommend for people who
want to test the linux waters without touching their
windows installs.... if some major distro would make

Now, it's my understanding so far that this could all
be avoided if the default initrd image used for the
standard install would just include the proper

Does anyone know if this change is being included (or
considered) for the upcoming release of FC5? Would
fixing this be significantly harder than it sounds?
Also, just to be sure... I've seen a few (apparently
untested) suggestions that it might be possible to
avoid the initrd mess if I were to specifying some
kernel parameters during the normal install. Is there
any truth to that?
I really think it's in everyone's best interests to
find some kind of real solution here. (preferably
