I seem to have (finally :) ) acquired a complete(ish) / working x86_64
system .. but I'm still having trouble with a few bits, not least "yum".

(This is a modified system [2.6.0-test11] however it seems to run well)
Pointing it at mozilla's channel for SeaMonkey seems to work if I
disable the default channels, however...
Anyone any ideas ?
(I was sort of expecting to see it say "no x86_64 updates supported yet"
as opposed to a complete crash)
Also, can yum pull SRPMS and rebuild them ?
I apologize if this is in the archives, and I missed it.
I updated rpm a while back with:
# yum -y update rpm
I believe it installed a python2.4 package as well. Ever since then, I
have had problems with python and rpm. I get this error when trying to

Appreciate the help,
Is it possible to save the firefox bookmarks so that when I do a clean install
of FC4 I can reload them?
I tried to cp the bookmarks.html file back into the /home/rmiles/.mozilla/firefox/0qem39dn.default directory but it did not
restore them from an earlier saving of this file.
It would be nice to be able to reset the bookmarks that I had in FC 3 to the FC 4

I'm running VNC (pre-installed) with FC3. My client/view is on Windows 2000.
To configure VNC I modified /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
And set a password. Then started the service "service vncserver start"
Starts up fine, and I can connect with my viewer to port 5901.
I'm new to Linux, so I'm confused about what desktop I am seeing. I
know with VNC server on a windows server, you get the display that the
local mouse/keyboard/monitor sees. There's only one desktop.
With FC3, I seem to be getting a new virtual desktop. I guess that
would be useful to run X applications. But is there a way to use VNC
to display the exact same thing that my locally attached
keyboard/mouse/monitor see? So if I change something remotely using
VNC, the local monitor also displays my changes. Just as if I was at
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 can't understand the behavior of kudzu in respect to my serial
modem. After initial installation it detects the modem but after that
it is ignored. What I mean is I can remove the modem and kudzu ignores
the change, or I can remove the modem from the kudzu database and
kudzu ignores the change. I can run: kudzu --class MODEM and kudzu
will remove all my hardware from its database except the MOUSE but it
still ignores the modem.
How can I get kudzu to notice that I have changed, removed or added
