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.

Still not working for me with the 2.6.22 kernel. I believe it's
188.8.131.52-33.fc7 and the similar latest in fc6.
It works with the 2.6.2 kernels... just looking for feedback, the
sendors command works after rerunning sensors-find.

I have a Centrino notebook with intel i945 video chipset and power
management has been a little of a problem lately.
If I use the xorg i810 driver, I can control LCD brightness correctly
and I can suspend to RAM, but I can't resume after a suspend. The LCD
will not turn on again. I had this problem in FC6 and corrected it
altering the suspend and resume scripts to save the state of LCD
brightness to a file when suspending and reading it back when
resuming. In FC6, this information was in /proc/acpi/asus/brn and the
functions for suspending and resuming were
In F7, I have the same problem with i810 driver (can't resume after
suspending, LCD does not turn on), but there's no /proc/acpi/asus/brn
and I couldn't find the suspend/resume functions.
So I tried the new intel driver. After booting, it allows me to adjust
LCD brightness as I wish, and it turns on the LCD correctly after
suspending/resuming. However, once I've done a suspend/resume, the
LCD brightness is set to maximum and I can't adjust it anymore,
unless I reboot.
Anyone has this working 100% on a intel i945 video chipset? How did
you do it?

I just purchased a belkin wireless g usb adapter and am not having any
luck getting it to work.
The following is the output from various commands, if more info is

Ok nice to be right back in the EXACT same position I was in several
years ago regarding this motherboard and installing FC. I think it was
FC3 that this first became an issue, but I was able to work around it
and install FC. So now, I tried to install FC6/7 and I yet to find a way
to get it installed.
So now it has been a year or so without being able to run Fedora/CentOS.
Please help as I really don't want to use Ubunto and especially not Suse.
Anyone have an issue installing on the Asus board?
Trying to install causes a seg fault when dealing with the hard drives
either in BIOS setting compatibility mode or SATA mode. Anaconda shows
the hard drives as "/dev/mapper" or something like that, but as you
know, they should appear as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb. All I ever see is a
single "/dev/mapper" which suggests that Anaconda sees a raid array even
after I fdisk the drives. Of coarse this also rendered the system
unusable after the seg fault resulted in a reboot.
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'm running fc7 (updated). I updated via yum from fc6.
Oddly, Cyrus continued to work after the upgrade (it usually breaks).
This time it was sendmail that broke, even though I'm running with a
fairly stock system.
The extent of my sendmail.mc edits are below.
I get messages from sendmail saying that my client (Thunderbird on
Windows Vista and FC7), well:

but if I turn off TLS, it seems to work ok (using username/password authentication in the clear, I guess).
Since it's TLS, I couldn't use tcpdump to read the transactions...
Here are the sendmail.mc edits. Nothing too weird:

Anyone seen anything similar to this?
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.
