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?
Just upgraded from 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7, and now seeing problems with NFS. I originally believed the problem was with the automounter, but it looks like it might be NFS instead. Rebooting with the old kernel solves the problem.
In this example, I'll create a new mountpoint, and try to mount my home directory. The directory is being served from a SUN Cluster 2.1 server.
# rm -rf /h
# mkdir -p /h/jminer
# mount superfly:/superfly/vol02/home/jminer /h/jminer
mount.nfs: /h/jminer is already mounted or busy
# echo $?
Now, if I try to mount the directory from the physical node, the mount suceeds.
# mount fly_a:/superfly/vol02/home/jminer /h/jminer
# echo $?
I saw similar problems with an earlier FC release, but it was related to either the autofs or nfs-utils package.
I just did a yum update on my son's computer. Now the cups daemon
won't start. Running /sbin/service cups start results in:
Unable to read configuration file '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - exiting!
I checked the permissions and they are root, lp 644.
If I run the same code as in the /etc/init.d/cups script, it starts
and works fine:
echo -n $"Starting $prog: "
[ $RETVAL = 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/cups
Using su, I tested and user lp can read the cupsd.conf file.
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

How do I mount an old dos floppy without making additions to fstab?
I assume there is a proper way to do this since an icon comes up on the
desktop when I plug the disk in to the drive but it can't deal with the
file system apparently and refuses to mount. I don't know the magic
incantation for the command line.
I have a few disks I need to extract text [.doc] files from.
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?
One of my servers has a public interface. It is hit by ssh login
attempts on a daily basis and the count for that goes into the thousands
per week. The usernames that have been tried are root, admin,
For the last could of weeks I have been getting a lot of login attempts
for a user called "NOUSER". There were over 12000 during the week ending
5th August. The sources of the attempts are geographically
distributed, Norway, US, Korea, Taiwan, India, etc. But the username is
always the same, "NOUSER". I am guessing this is some kind of worm.

Has anybody else seen such activity or has more information about it?
Anything I should worry about?
If it matters, the box runs an up-to-date FC6.

How does one unsubscribe and subscribe to this list?
I have been to https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-list many
many time over the last 3 weeks to change my email address.
I tried to change it. I tried to unsubscribe and re-subscribe. Everytime
mailman promises to send a confirmation message, but I never receive it.
I have no spam filter, so that is not it.
How else can I get this service to unsubcribe and re-subscribe me?
Here is what worked for years: The Grub was on disk hd0 and Linux
was on hd0,0 thru 6 and hd1,0 thru 7. The BIOS could find all the Linux
/boot/grub/ without fail.
Now I have just one hard drive all set in the BIOS setup and I went
up in the F7 Rescue cd and told grub the following:
Grub> root (hd0,5)
Grub> setup (hd0)
This worked according to the written info from grub. But It would not
work. I would get a bios error.
So I installed FC6 basic in the (hd0,0) partition and it worked
fine. Then I added the directions to this F7 and of course Grub found
it. Here I am again on the old computer.

Looking at Google I found The Biostar Geforce 6100-m9 NVIDIA Socket
939 micro ATX USB 2.0/ Serial ATA/ RAID for $65.00 and a barebones kit
with mb and cpu and case 350 watt ps for $130.00.
It has a floppy drive and serial port on the mb. With all the other
stuff. This would be my cheapest new computer unless you know why it is bad.
