I've download Fedora 5 DVD. I've done sha1sum check, all is fine. When I
first ran the install, I had the installation verify the DVD, everything
is fine. When i do either an upgrade or a fresh install, the system
hangs on the dependency check. Thinking that I had a bad burn, I re
burned a DVD, but I got the same result. Anyone else have the same

Is anyone using USB WiFi devices with Fedora?
I have a Lucent/Orinoco USB Gold Client,
I have been looking at the
"Linux driver for Lucent/Agere ORiNOCO USB devices"
by Øystein Olsen at <http://folk.uio.no/oeysteio/orinoco-usb/>,
and have downloaded the Fedora-3 RPM.
Unfortunately, I find some of the instructions rather confusing.
(1) It says that
"The orinoco-usb driver is for now only available from cvs".
But I can't find an orinoco-usb CVS.
Does this mean the orinoco CVS?
In any case, since there is an orinoco-usb rpm.
I assume there must be a separate CVS for this application.
Is this a misunderstanding?
Or if not, where is the orinoco-usb CVS?
(2) It says in the introudction
"The orinoco-usb driver is for now only available from cvs.
I put together this page to simplify
the building and installation of the driver.
The driver and script to build the driver,
are all available from the RPMS directory."
I don't understand this;
if the driver is only available from cvs
then what is the RPM?
(3) Later on the same page, it says
Thanks to a tip from Martin Visser, the firmware package is no longer
necessary. The firmware is hard-coded into the driver instead. In short if
you use a driver which is newer that April 4th 2005 or if you use
build-source.sh, you can safely ignore all instructions related to the
firmware and hotplug."
But where exactly does one find a driver newer than April 4th 2005?
Any suggestions or advice gratefully received.

Does everyone here agree that a 500watt power supply is sufficient
enough for a dual MP 1800 board with 4 hard disks, DVDrom, cdrw,
dvdrw, and plenty of self powered usb hubs? I'm trying to figure out
whats up with my computer and my next stop is to call an electrician.
here is the problem...after finishing the Installation, i reboot then Windows XP boots up like normal instead of grub. so i went into BIOS changed boot priority to :
then all i get is a bash line:
from here i don't know what to do...i find it odd that
stage2 didn't load.
it should be known that i'm using two hard drives.
tried using OSL2000 bootloader but that didn't work either, so i took it back off. i don't understand why it's doing this. FC4 didn't have this issue. thinking about trying the text based install and seeing what happens...but i'd rather not go that way. I'll wait for responses first before i make a decision.
i'm still a newbie to linux. kinda half migrating from MS untill i get comfortable with linux.

Since upgrading to fc5 firefox won't show pdf docs. I can
save the doc and open it in acroread, evince, etc.
When firefox tries to to show a pdf file I get an error window:
Unable to open document
Unhandled MIME type: 'application/octet-stream'
I've messed with mozpluggerrc to use acroread, then I tried
evince. Same problem.
Any help appreciated
