I can't run cpuspeed on my wife's notebook:it's a Acer Aspire 3630 and
it use a Intel Celeron CPU.
FC8 and kernel 220.127.116.11-49.fc8.
I even can't load the acpi_cpufreq module, this is the error message:
FATAL: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq
No such device
And BTW, what is the correct value I have to in the file
/etc/sysconfig/cpuspeed in the line DRIVER ?
I put down here some info, please let me know if you need others.

I'm running F8 on a T30 thinkpad. Whenever I try to do yum
update, I get :

I've tried everything I can think of to update or get rid of that
avahi-0.6.17-1.fc7.i386 with the "fc7" in it, and nothing I know works.
Pirut did claim to have removed it; but yum update still failed the same.
What do I do, while I still can? Yum wants to change 124
packages, including replacing a kernel.

Remember I know precious little of what I am talking about.
What's the real differences between Fedora and say RHEL Desktop ?
Specifically I'm considering buying one of the following for my new
dual core laptop w 12G of memory:
Workstation with Standard Subscription
Workstation and Multi-OS with Basic Subscription
Thanks in advance...
is there anything i should know about linux compatibility with
* dell studio 15 laptop
* intel core 2 duo T8100 CPU (2.1GHz/800MHz FSB)
* WUXGA display
* 4GB shared dual channel DDR2 RAM @ 667MHz
* 320GB SATA HD
* 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon 3450 video
* Integrated Sound Blaster Audigy
is there anything on that list that should give me pause
regarding running fedora (or linux in general)? thanks.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a modern PCMCIA/PC Card wifi card
which just works out of the box with recent Fedora? I can download a
firmware blob if I have to, but extra points for not having to. These days
all new laptops have wireless built in so all the current info I can find
seems focused on that.

I guess I should rephrase my question about my 4GB memory stick/pen,
where the filesystem
now is set to readonly when I enter it into one of the slots.
Could anyone tell me what might have happened by taking a look at the
snip of the logfile?
I am not allowed to do anyting but reading files. I am not allowed to
delete files ,remove directires
or write to files, even if I change to root privileges.
I cannot say when this started - it just happened one time when I tried
to backup some files to the Jet Flash.
Then I got the message (one example):
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/disk/trade/statQ': Read-only
Does anyone have a clue? I'd be grateful for pointers in the right

I would like to but I could not find the side to download it, I appreciate if you
happen to have a link for me.
I am interested in installing fedora on a laptop x61t (it is, to the best of
my understanding, a 64bit machine.)
a few questions I have:
* should 60-80 GB be reasonable for full installation of fedora?
* i would like to upgrade to fedora 10 when it is available. should i
install the beta release which would make it easier to upgrade, or should i
stick to fedora 9 since it is more stable and still easy to upgrade?
* should i be worried about performance with fedora 10/9 on a laptop with
1.6Ghz processor and 4GB ram?
* last, i tried running the Live CD for x86_64 of fedora 9. i had a weird
experience - fedora loaded, but no text appeared. instead it was all black
empty spots ("null" font). should i be worried about that when coming to
install fedora in fully?
* i read somewhere that someone installed fedora 64bit on a laptop x61t like
mine, and complained that everything was incredibly slow. once he
re-installed the 32bit version, it became much better. i would like to use a
64bit version still... should i be worried about having the same behavior?
hope it is not too many quetsions.
I have a web server with a DVD drive, and a server with only a CD ROM
drive. How can I install fedora on the server over the network using
HTTP? I've searched around but haven't found a method that matches my
particular situation. Any ideas?
It's vlc 0.8.6i on Fedora 8 fully updated as of today and the problem is not
viewing, it's in the audio. After approx. one minute of sound it suddenly goes
mute and after maybe half a minute it will produce sound again and so it
continues ad infinitum. The console list from such vlc looks like:
[erik@epohost ~]$ vlc
VLC media player 0.8.6i Janus
 access_mms access: selecting stream[0x1] audio (85 kb/s)
 access_mms access: ignoring stream[0x2] audio (69 kb/s)
 access_mms access: ignoring stream[0x3] audio (38 kb/s)
 access_mms access: selecting stream[0x4] video (859 kb/s)
 access_mms access: ignoring stream[0x5] video (419 kb/s)
 access_mms access: ignoring stream[0x6] video (224 kb/s)
 access_mms access: connection successful
 pulse audio output error: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused
 pulse audio output error: Pulse initialization failed
 alsa audio output error: write failed (Broken pipe)
 main playlist: stopping playback
It is very consistent it happens every time I view a network stream.
Is this something I can correct or should I raise an issue with bugzilla?
