I gave my wife a Canon Elura 100 camcorder for Christmas. I just watched
her download her very first movie to Windows XP. Can I do the same in
Fedora Core 5? If I just plugged in the camcorder to my onboard 1394
port, will an application come up recognizing the camcorder and offering
to download the movie from the DV tape?
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,
To get a pdf file with the contents of a web-page, I produce a ps file
and then I use ps2pdf. However, no text can be copied from the
resulting pdf file. Is there other way of producing a pdf file with

I run a server that has updates of RPMs I build for our lab. The
packages directory is getting too big and fat with 10 or 15 versions
of some RPMS. I wonder if somebody has a script that can clean out
the older versions? Something that cooperates with the createRepo

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

Realising that I hadn't installed lshw since I installed FC6, I tried to get
it today and came up once again against the public key problem. I'll never
get the hang of this :-( I followed the link on freshrpm's web page and
saved the file, then ran 'rpm --import path/to/file' which appeared to put it
into the right place, but still the package wouldn't install because it said
there was no public key. Wondering whether the problem was because something
was broken in my repo setup - out of date, perhaps - I removed the repo and
reinstalled it. Still no joy. Just what is it that I have forgotten?
I am using a Samsung ML-1610 laser printer.
I am experiencing many problems in printing images either with Eog,
Gimp or documents including same images as a openoffice writer
document or a PDF document.
I can't print my photo (that it is not a real problem as I use an
When I installed the printer (that was working a little bit better
with previous versions of Cups) I was compelled to use the GDI driver,
as if I try to use Postscript driver I get an internal cups server
When I try to print an image i see red light flashing but no printing!!!

when I install the printer I get the splix driver as recommended in
the ML-1610 drivers but when I try to install I get the message that
cannot be used with ML-1610.

I've been wrestling with anaconda this evening on my x86_64 machine. It
seems that anaconda (or some other piece of the installer) is
forcing /dev/mapper to be created even when I have no RAID devices
I have cleared the 'fake' raid stuff off of my disks from rescue
mode(dmraid -E), but with 2 disks installed the installer insists on
trying to configure /dev/mapper/mpath0.
I see each disk individually if I only have one SATA drive connected at
a time. Which seems odd as heck to me, but I can install FC6 and at
least send you folks this email this way.
Is there a 'nodmraid' option to the installer that I can pass to allow
me to see /dev/sda & /dev/sdb instead of the dmraid stuff? What's even
stranger is that there appears to be a way to disable dmraid from the
GUI screen when you choose to 'remove all partitions', but the option is
Any guidance would be appreciated.
