After updating the kernel this morning, I ran in this odd situation:
- Clock in gnome does not update (stays the same) and is running 2 hours
- date in console show correct time (as does hwclock --debug), file
stamps are ok but log entries in /var/log/messages also are marked with
incorrect time and each entry has the same time
The 2 hours ahead could be explained because our local time is Amsterdam
and summer time, but the system clock is configured local time and not
Falling back to kernel 126.96.36.199-27.fc7 shows normal operation.

What is the output for "rpm -qa | grep kernel"?
[olivares@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep kernel
It looks like it will work eventually. Here's newer try
[root@localhost ~]# yum install kernel-22.214.171.124-33.fc7 kernel-devel-126.96.36.199-33.fc7 kernel-headers-188.8.131.52-33.fc7

After buying a SAM's book and CD from a Microcenter a few days ago, I
tried to follow the installation
procedure using a CD but my PC failed to recognize an OS (I've erased
the hard drive which had Win XP).
The book describes an install procedure using a CD from a program
called "kickstart" that causes my
machine to recognize the CD, I believe. How do I boot up to install
FC 6 ? Where can I download kickstart ?
I'm new to Unix and Linux . Thanx for your assistance.

After upgrading to the 2.6.22 kernels in F7 I have been having trouble
with suspend/hibernate. After upgrading to 184.108.40.206-41.fc7 I discovered
that it wasn't the kernel itself that was the problem, but the fglrx.ko
module that seems to be the problem. If I closed the lid while in X
without the fglrx.ko module, the suspend/resume worked.
I did get this message though:
Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason a0 on CPU 0.
You have some hardware problem, likely on the PCI bus.
Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
Anything that could cause this?
While installing Fedora 7 on a Dell Inspiron laptop previously running
Ubuntu, I had corrupted and then erased /home (sda4) by accident.
After a failed Fedora install, Ubuntu would not boot. Not knowing what
to do, and with no way to boot and google the situation, I played Y,
Y, Y to all fsck's questions. Now, /home is empty. I do have a backup
from 4 weeks ago, as I backup the first of every month, but I have
done quite a bit of work this past month. I'm very interested in
recovering the data.
More info: This is a Dell Inspiron machine, 2.0GHz dual-core Intel
processor, 2GB RAM, 80GB 7000RPM hard drive, ATI X1400 video. The disk
is partitioned with sda1: 15GB /; sda2: 15 GB blank (Fedora was to go
here) ; sda3: 3GB swap ; sda4: ~47 GB /home. I set these partitions a
few months ago when I last installed Ubuntu. I had begun install of
Fedora 7 when the machine crashed- I didn't get to the real install
part. Upon rebooting (into Ubuntu), it complained something about
inodes. I gave it the root password (yes, I had previously set a root
password) and ran fsck (or something else resembling a rather
unacceptable work, appropriate name by the way). A few Y, Y, Y's later
I could boot the system. However, as soon as I logged into KDE I was
returned to the login screen. I CTRL-ALT-F4ed into a terminal and
logged in as root. I then cd'ed into /home, and ls showed that there
was nothing there. I immediately ran shutdown -h and now that I'm home
I'm writing from the wife's desktop.
Any help in recovering the /home/user directory, or even specific
files therein, would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Anyone else seeing this kind of thing?

Basically no spam is being identified and I've not changed the config
in a few months so I'm suspecting an update might have broken something?

Without having to write my own, is there a quick way I can sort a two

that might be better to post this question to I'd appreciate that as well.

I was trying out Fedora 7 Live CD. I wanted to know if the hibernation
feature worked in my computer. I tried to hibernate it but I got a
flash falling back to console for a while (some ACPI warnings) and
then back again to X11.
OK, it didn't work... but the point is that after a safe power off (no
errors or warnings) I couldn't boot into my FC 6!!! No GRUB menu...
nothing. After some minutes of panic, I reset my BIOS to it's default
values and I could boot. Everything seems to be fine.
Is this the first time this happens? Is this a bug? Should I open a
bug in bugzilla?
PS: No, I'm _not_ going to try to reproduce this :)
I am unable to install FC7 on a brand new Dell Inspiron 530. It came
with Ubuntu pre-installed, and I'm trying to wipe/replace with Fedora.
The Install DVD boots fine, then hangs on a "Loading SCSI Driver" window
with the following message: "Loading ata_piix driver..."
After about 5 minutes of stalling on this, I'm asked to choose a
language and keyboard type. I then choose "Local CDROM" as the
Installation Method and am presented with a "No driver found" message
with an option to select a driver or use a driver disk.
Also if I select FTP or HTTP for Installation Method, that too fails
with a "No Driver found" message and I'm asked to choose a driver for my
Intel Pentium dual-core processor E2140 (1MB L2,1.60GHz,800 FSB)
512MB Single Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz - 1DIMM
128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8300GS
160GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache
48X CD-RW/ DVD Combo Drive
It's an Intel G33 Chipset w/ ICH9 SATA Controller.
I am able to successfully boot into the FC7 Live CD just fine.
How can I get FC7 onto this Inspiron? Much thanks in advance!
