K3b is a piece of work...
I have 2 CD/DVD burner drives
Fedora doesn't like the Plextor...I guess
after downloading F10 for 9.5 hours, I tried to burn a ISO-DVD.
The simplest operation?
I wasted 4 blanks making 3 final copies that haved been checked to be good!.
The Plextor would get an error and then hang K3B
I'd kill it with kill -9 and then the drive would be locked up and even hung the eject command.
I had to reboot to open the drive. Sometimes I have to reboot to do a second operation!
and even once the "bring things back" facility had the #$%& thing running again.
OH YES! an old error reported forever
When making an ISO DVD, the verify write facility still doesn't work
even on the Sony drive. It says "couldn't find a DVD to verify.
Make things easy: if there is an error:
(1) release the drive announcing ithat the DVD is no longer blank!
(2) eject the DVD
(3) terminate all processes and subprocesses that stay running(i.e. die and go away)
(4) work on the program some more.
During the installation of Fedora 10 I choose UK for the keyboard
layout, but I when I log in gnome is using American layout.
If I add the UK in System->Preferences->Hardware->Keyboard it seems to
not make difference. I make it the default, but again, the layout is
I've just installed Fedora-9 on a lab of Dell OptiPlex 745 (SFF) machines. (
only in 1 lab TG )
After running firstboot when I went to reboot the machines they just hang and
I had to do a hard reboot. I thought this was a minor glitch and ignored it.
Now however when the machines boot into Fedora-9 the "reboot" and "suspend"
buttons do not work. The windowing system just shuts down and I get a text
prompt and the machines just hang there.
As thes are dual boot machines this will cause a lot of problems starting
monday when the students return ;-(
Is ther some magic incantation to grub to sort this problem or any body got
I have tried various ways to persuade my laptop to install F10 from the DVD
iso file stored on one of the partitions that will not be formatted during
the install. Nothing I have tried gets the install to continue past the
stage where the Partition holding the iso image is selected. It says it
cannot find the install media and seems to have added images/install.img to
the end of the directory path where my iso file is stored.
I have also tried by adding the images directory to the same directory
containing the iso, and within it is the install.img file
Telling the install to point to the directory on the partition containing
the DVD iso and the images directory still gives an error message that
anaconda cannot find the install media.
I have tried from the netinst iso burned to a physical CD disk, the vmlinuz
and initrd.img extracted from this iso and referred from grub to boot it,
from the extracted vmlinuz and initrd.img from the DVD iso booted via grub,
and whichever way I start the HD install it always fails at the same point.
I could use the DVD on this machine as it does have a DVD drive but I have
other machines without a DVD drive that I would like to install from the DVD
iso on the hard drive.
Does anyone have a confirmation that an HD install does work? I am
wondering if this is just my specific hardware that is tripping up anaconda
in this case - so other reports would be valuable.
if I can successfully do an HD install on this machine I have some hope that
it is possible on other machines... and if so what is the trick. I have been
doing installs this way for quite a few years with all previous versions of
Fedora including F9. The only difference is that in this case the images are
stored on a laptop which has f9 with SElinux enabled so I don't know if this
makes any difference - I can't see that it should and the iso files are
readable by all users with permissions set to 755.
I have tried adding linux askmethod to the install, instead of the graphical
boot - but every way I try for an HD install fails at the same point and I
am getting heartily frustrated now.
Can anyone report success please?

I'm getting frequent segfaults which crash Firefox:

etc. etc. etc.
They start on Oct 12, which coincides with the last update I did (a
groupupdate of KDE from updates-testing-newkey). This is F9 on a x86_64.
I can't do far pin the segfault down to a specific page or media type. I
did a "mozilla-plugin-config -i" a couple of hours back and it hasn't
happened since, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone else had
I'll post a followup if it happens again.
