Hello to everybody, and greetings from Croatia (Europe)...
I need help...
Model of laptop: Toshiba Satellite P200-10C
My integrated bluetooth wont work, unless I do the following:
1. I start laptop with Windows Vista
2. I restart from Vista to Fedora
Each time I do this, bluetooth works fine. But, if I turn off computer,
and start it again directly to Fedora, bluetooth wont work, and system
wont recognize any bluetooth device.
I have described this problem on Fedora forum, also, but nobody answered
my question so far, even I have posted that post month ago.
Here is the link to that post:
If anybody knows how to handle this problem, I'll be very appreciated...
Also, my combination of pressing Fn + (F1-F9) wont work either...
now that my Fedora 8 is fully set up, I notice periodical short
hangs of the Desktop, making its use quite uncomfortable. `top` tells me
that the X and Nautilus processes are eating up to 30% of CPU every
15-20sec approximately (I can hear some disk activity as well).
Sensors applets are configured to poll on a longer period basis so it's
probably not them. No cron activity has been set. Anyway, I was running
the same applets with my Fedora Core 5 and GNOME and never encountered
such behaviour before.
For the record, nautilus-action is installed and there are few mounts
(USB disks) visible onto the Desktop. I've tried closing all apps (but
GNOME Desktop) and this still happens.
Anybody has this too? Or any hint?
Do you have 'cups' installed?
Why not use 'http://localhost:631/', it works well.
If you printer doesn't have a driver there, try the
'gutenprint-' package. It is not a *rpm yet, but
the instructions are straight forward.
I've made some progress on troubleshooting this "ssh & port 22 problem".
Here was my original post:
When I try to connect from a remote machine to my one at home
using ssh I get the error message "ssh: connect to host 188.8.131.52 port
22: Connection refused" -- but using ssh in the outgoing direction (i.e.
from home to the remote location) works fine.
Here's what's happened since:
I have two machines (PuteA and PuteB) sharing an ActionTec DSL modem. The IP
I was using was that of my "Gateway" ISP (184.108.40.206) -- an error. But
when I used the correct, static IP address of the ActionTec
(220.127.116.11) I got this message:
ssh: connect to host 18.104.22.168 port22: Connection refused
I thought I had port forwarding (for port 22) set correctly on the modem. For
troubleshooting, my ISP advised me to run "tcpdump -n host 192.168.0.2" on
PuteA, where 192.168.0.2 is the "internal" IP of PuteA. Then I logged on
to the remote location from PuteB and tried to ssh from there to PuteA
using the static IP address. The ssh from the remote location timed out
with the same "port 22: connection refused" message. The tcpdump on Pute
A gave this message:
> tcpdump: listening on eth0
> 17:27:33.662753 arp who-has 192.168.0.2 tell 192.168.0.1
where 22.214.171.124 is the "internal" IP of the modem. (Sorry if I have
this terminology wrong.)
My ISP says the problem is the firewall on PuteA and that he doesn't do linux
Here are my replies to the people who responded to my first post:
(1) "Do you have the firewall configured to deny incoming packets to port
How do I check this?
(2) "You need to check that sshd is running on your system."
Yes. I comes up with each boot. Also "service sshd status" gives
"sshd (pid 787) is running".
(3) "sshd uses /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny. Check that they are
configured to allow your remote machine in."
Both files have only commented lines.
(4) "Also, if your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file has VerifyReverseMapping
turned on, you will get kicked out if your remote address does not work
with a reverse dns lookup."
There's a "VerifyReverseMapping no" line in the file but it's been commented
(5) "Just to be sure: when you are at home machine, try 'ssh localhost'.
If this works, you probably need to check your firewall."
It seems to work -- I ssh to the machine itself.
(6) "This is common on every system I have ever loaded with FC2. Your
iptables are blocking the connection. You can do one of the following:
iptables -A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 - j ACCEPT"
I tried this. The ssh to PuteA from the remote location still times out.
(7) "Oh yes I also took out the REDHAT firewall entrie as I dont have a
clue as to how to work with it."
I've fiddled endlessly with this "system tool" at each of the three levels
of security as well as using the "customize" option to set eth0 as a
trusted device and to allow incoming ssh. It doesn't show the settings
that actually exist.
(8) "If your fedora box is connected directly to a DSL modem, you should
be able to find your IP address by running ifconfig from the command
line and looking for 'inet addr:' (probably under 'eth0')."
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:05:81:60:8E
inet addr:192.168.0.4 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:2184 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:2005 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:1122075 (1.0 Mb) TX bytes:190214 (185.7 Kb)
Interrupt:5 Base address:0x3000
Could this be the problem -- the "inet addr" of 192.168.0.4? As far as I
can tell, the modem is 192.168.0.1, PuteA is 192.168.0.2, and PuteB is
192.168.0.3. I haven't set anything as 192.168.0.4.
(9) "nmap 126.96.36.199"
(The 1598 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port State Service
23/tcp open telnet
53/tcp open domain
80/tcp open http
Shouldn't ssh be here? And what's telnet doing open? The books have me
scared to death of this... hackers, crackers, script kiddies, etc.
Thanks for the help!
I upgraded FC-6 to F-7 on an Athlon64 machine,
and the process hung several (3 I think) times during installation.
Each time I re-started the machine,
the number of packages was greatly reduced: 950 ... 400 ... 50.
The system works fine,
but it is pretty clear all the packages were not properly installed.
Eg when I ran "yum update" after the installation
only 30 or so packages were downloaded,
while on other systems the number was 300-400.
Is there any way of checking that everything has been downloaded?
Or is there even a command like "yum --force install"
to force a re-installation of a particular package?

On Fedora 8, the new X11 is breaking programs like nmrDraw from NMRPipe.
The program runs fine under Fedora 7 but fails under Fedora 8 with the error...
nmrdraw: xcb_io.c:285: _XAllocID: Assertion `!(dpy->flags & (1L << 3))' failed.
This problem also has been reported for the latest OpenSuse. I found the following
thread which sounds like the problem...
Unfortunately, it seems that we may need to rebuild X11 to disable some of these
I get the following error when trying to run SkypeMate:
SkypeMate: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Has anyone installed SkypeMate on a Fedora 8 system?

how many of you use presto plugin for yum that does deltarpms
downloads and now whole rpms while updating?
How do you find it? I find it excellent! I have a fast internet
connection and I still find it really helpful - I can't imagine how is
it to update on a slow internet connections without presto.
If you look at the link:
you can see that it will be on by default on Fedora 9 - nice :)

Laptop attached to docking station, and through that to an external
Booting F8, external display behaves normally at first, but when
graphical stuff starts, it does some flickering (like a TV in need of
horizontal hold adjustment) then goes blank and stays blank. Laptop
display continues to work normally.
I'm only trying to display the same desktop simultaneously on both
displays. No split desktops or double desktops, or anything fancy.
It all worked properly with FC5, and subsequent upgrades to FC6 and then
F7. Problem appeared only on upgrade to F8. All F8 updates applied.
Everything still works normally if I boot Windows XP instead of F8.
Config is: Compaq Evo N1020v laptop with Radeon IGP 340M graphics.
