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 am almost certain I have done this before but I am getting old and may
be imagining things. I have opened up a new message in Thunderbird
(latest and greatest). I have verified that the format is "Rich Text
(HTML)". I go to KSnapShot and snap a section of the screen and click on
the "Copy to Clipboard" button. I then try to paste it into the note and
it simply does nothing.
Am I missing something? I would like to paste an image into a note to
send as documentation to someone.

I've bought a drive with usb and network connection. I used the usb to
quickly transfer a large quantity of data, but intended putting it onto the
network after that. The blurb on the box said it would just pick an ip by
dhcp. However, it seems to me that I need to know something about it in
order to mount it, and I've got a total blank on where to go next. Nothing
appears in /var/log/messages.
I've told the router to reserve an address for it and made an entry
in /etc/hosts. Since I can't see any sign of it being recognised I haven't a
clue how to mount it. Any ideas?
It has been stated that you can format CD-RW using cdrecord or k3b.
I can't find that option in either program. k3b can format DVD-RW and
DVD+RW but not CDs as far as I can see.
Could someone explain how to do it

My Fedora 7 system is running well, except for the nasty habit of
freezing two or three times per day when I am working. First: all
windows stop responding to the mouse and key board, then soon after, the
mouse freezes as well.
The only option available then is to press the reset button to reboot
There doesn't appear to be any specific application that causes the
freeze. It typically happens when I have a largish number of
applications open at once (say: Firefox, Eclipse, Thunderbird, Pidgin,
Terminal, Putty), but I could be working in any one of the applications.
This problem has been happening since I installed F7 soon after the
official release. So I have seen this behavior with at least three
kernels (including the last release a few days ago).
My system spec:
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo e6600
- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6
- Video card: Asus EN7900GS
- kernel.x86_64 2.6.21-1.3228
All currently available F7 updates installed.
Are there any known issues that may be causing this? If not, should I
be reporting it as a bug?
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?
first I would like to ask where is the proper place to suggest new
features and obvious usability enhancements for fedora.
Is there a mailing list or some group of people or someone specific I
have to target in order for some really much needed features to be
included in fedora releases?
First one I see as a really great usability add on to fedora is
Deskbar gnome plugin. It is in the repositories, but it is not
installed by default and it is not enabled by default. I think that
this is a great shame. All new users (and also old ones) would benefit
a lot from just including this great widget in default desktop setup
for Fedora 7 .
Ok, I won't go too much long here if this isn't proper way of getting
attention to the right people. I don't mean that you aren't proper or
not important but I just don't know if this mailing list is the right
way for discussing usability and features. Please tell me if it is and
then I'll continue if not point me in the right direction.
Thank you all for your time and attention.
