I bought motherboard Gigabyte GA-K8N51PVMT-9 on chipset GeForce 6150 and
installed FC5. I can't see cursor in X. When computer loading, and rhgb
show the progress of loading, I see cursor and everything OK. When
computer is loaded and X started, there is no viewable cursor on the
screen. I move mouse, all necessary menus etc are highlighted, but no
cursor. I update kernel and xorg - result the same. I installed nvidia
drivers for video from livna - but result the same - no cursor.
What shall I do?
With best regard, Peter (Zebar) Astakhov
Is there some simple way of setting yum to save previous versions
of the kernel so that I can go back easily when new kernels cause
problems? more than the two default, say maybe 5?

Every time I restart my machine, the Win key (Super_R/L or mod4) stops
functioning, means - no key combinations involving this key work.
the out put of xmodmap looks fine to me.
xmodmap: up to 3 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):
shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e)
lock Caps_Lock (0x42)
control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x6d)
mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_L (0x7d), Meta_L (0x9c)
mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4 Super_L (0x7f), Hyper_L (0x80)
mod5 Mode_switch (0x5d), ISO_Level3_Shift (0x7c)
However, I found the way to bring it back. I run
gnome-keyboard-properties and change my the "Keyboard model" value from
"Generic 105-key (Intl) PC", which I have by default, to "Generic
102-key (Intl) PC" for instance, and close that window to apply the
changes. Amazingly, the Win key starts working. Now I can change this
value back original one. The story repeats on next start-up.
This is FC6 and I am using fluxbox as my window manager. What can be the

Hello there guys and gals,
I would like to know if you could either make a cron job that creates a job to clean my father's evolution trash folder or if there is a setting in Evolution which would allow you to clean the trash. He has a tendency to forget to clean his trash and I would like to run that a couple times a week for him? Thanks much.
We at Pilotalk hope you have a very nice week.

I haven't seen any updates from either one of the following mirrors
since the 2nd of March:
I know there was supposed to be a coordinated effort to move to
rpmforge, but AFAICT this is still incomplete.
Anyone know what's happening over there?
The Dries repo still has some packages that can't be found elsewhere.

Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux) on sky, running kernel 2.6.20-1.2300.fc5
12:32:28 up 11:46, 2 users, load average: 0.40, 0.45, 0.30
Upgrading to FC6, off a hard disk partition. Text install
goes without error, until the Package Installation screen
appears. There's a popup:
"starting install process. This may take several minutes..."
That was 36 hours ago!
No disk access lights flashing.
This is a slow old machine 400mz, 128meg ram, but it runs fc5.
I tried contacting CodecBuddy developers but with no luck. I wan't to
help with testing it and bug hunting but need some pointers how. Can
anybody tell me how I can get in and help out?
Thank you in advance.

With Fedora7 being released within a month, I would like to ask where
the discussion of Fedora 'N' becoming just Fedora that was going on a
month or two ago went.
I find it irritating (if not impossible) to have to reinstall with each new
release of Fedora, and having an OS that could be continuously updated
would be a real plus. I realize that during 'initial' development this is
difficult, but since we are at '7' it seems that Fedora should be as smart
as other distributions that CAN do continuous updates.
So, what happened to that discussion?
I'm not one of the developers and this is a totally unprompted
recommendation, but, if you haven't tried it, I can't say enough good
things about the Claws Mail client. It's an extended version of
Sylpheed, I think, and is the only graphical (Gtk) mail program I've
found that comes anywhere near to Mutt.
Unlike Evolution, it does only one thing, but it does that one
thing--mail handling--very, very well indeed. Plugins are available
to handle PGP in all its various permutations; to read PDFs inline;
there's even a Perl plugin that allows you to script actions that
can't be configured natively, though what those may be I can't
If you're looking for a mail client that can chew through a large
number of mailing lists, do check it out: threaded indexing (à la
Mutt), handles quote levels in contrasting colors (like Mutt), and is
set up for easy pre- and post-processing of mails. It's also
fast--much faster than Evolution. (I have to admit that even as a Nat
and Miguel fanboi.)
I still use Mutt to read mail on the server, but when I'm on my Fedora
box, Claws Mail is just so good I just had to share.
(Be sure to get the claws-mail-plugins RPM if you try it out.)
