I am preparing to backup my root drive in preparation
for installing f7. What is the best way to do this?
I have in /dev/hda as:
/boot = /dev/hda1
/ = /dev/hda2
I have backed up /boot with: tar zcvpf /boot.tgz /boot
But have get to figure out how to get /dev/hda2 backed up without
picking up the other drives mounted on /
Of course, I am saving the backups on a different drive so that I can
use specific files I want to restore or refer to when rebuilding the new

Should I worry? :)
Is there anyone who has configured F7 to read/write Urdu
successfully. Currently the official support for Urdu available in F7 is not
sufficient. It displays broken words while reading/writing. Ubunto is
currently fully equipped with Urdu read/write support but I've not used
Ubunto. So, in this case can someone gave me kind guidance ,so I can drive
out Urdu Suport from Ubunto to work in Fedora?

Is there any way to install CentOS using just one CD?
We have someone in India and I guess he does not
have time to download all the CentOS CDs by tomorrow,
so he would like to install a minumum where you need just
I am not sure what combination of installation packages would
stay on one CD?
Yesterday, when I ran 'yum update' on F7 I got two packages
installed for which I can't find a reason (see yum log
The two new packages are vbetool and radeontool. From
what I can find, both used to be part of pm-utils.
I really don't know about vbetool, maybe it's needed, but
radeontool is described as:
"radeontool is a hack to save some battery on an
ATI Radeon Mobility graphics chip. Radeontool can
turn off and on the backlight and external video
But, my platform is a desktop, not a laptop, with a GeForce
6800 GT video card.
Using yumex, I tried uninstalling radeontool to see what
depended on it; there were nearly 200 of them and pretty
much none of those were optional. They included most of
the OpenOffice pkgs, Control-Center and system-config-*,
Can anyone explain, or even speculate, why radeontool?

I've on deadline crunch and butting my head against the wall. This seems like
it should be simple. Doc is centered on screen talking away and he refers to
product - I want to cut to a shot of him moved over taking up the right two
thirds of the screen - so far so good; on the left third of the screen I want
a blue background gradient going from near black at bottom to deep blue at
top - so far so good (over this I'm going to bring up relevant product info
as he discusses it - so far so good); so, here's my question - how do I do a
soft transition between my right background edge and the live video of Doc? I
found the 'Sony Border' effect, but that does all sides of the gradient - I
just want to soften the edge between the gradient and the video...

Hi Fedora list:
I'm having a problem with a FC6 server running kernels
kernel-126.96.36.199-49.fc6 and kernel-188.8.131.52-42.fc6.
The hardware is:
Tyan Tiger i7501R S2735. newest BIOS.
Intel 32 bit Xeon 2.8Ghz 533 FSB sSpec SL6VN
3G DDR reg ECC RAM.
2 * 80GB IDE DASD.
The interesting bit: The server resets, no kernel panic, no oops,
nothing but a reset. I have *.debug in syslog, and see no errors in
syslog or in dmesg.
The resets seem random. They can occur at any point within a couple
hours of boot.
This ONLY happens when I have two processors on the board. I have
rotated multiple processors in the second socket, and from the second
socket to the primary socket. They only way the server is stable is when
it has only a single processor.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Is there any way (and if so, how do I do it) to limit the devices
the GNOME drivemount-applet displays to specifically exclude devices
listed in /etc/fstab? I really don't need to see the 11 identical hard
drive icons for the other partitions on my hard drive.
