Well got my new Linux Format the other day and on the bottom here is a
little blurb about an interview with Max talking about freedom and
fedora. I have briefly scanned the article and looks to be a good read.
Fedora has been getting alot of coverage in Llinux Format this year much
more than previous years anyway. So things must be getting better right.
Well if your not a subscriber like me I'm sure you can pick up a copy up
at your local book stand or news store. Enjoy.
I have some current kernel code that I would like to compare to an
implementation of several years ago.
When I try to compile the old kernel, I get an error message telling
me that my C compiler is too new (!).
So, I have some old CDs, and can install an old Redhat (v9) or Fedora
(v1 or v2) but I realize that there were many updates to all of these.
Needless to say, I dont find any updates left on the WEB for these
I havent followed what people selling CDs have. Does anyone sell
OLD distributions including the updates?
Im sure I can get along without the updates (unless they turn out to
be to something significant) as this will all be done behind a good
firewall, but Im interested in knowing whats available. Perhaps in
the future I should copy all the updates to a DVD before they go
away,-- just in case.
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 have just installed VLC 0.9.5 from rpmfusion to my Fedora 10 Rawhide. I am
a gnome desktop user, but also have qt4 installed - because of Skype.
What surprised me, that this version of VLC opened for me under QT4
Interface. Is there a way to have it under GTK as previous versions?
I'm updating my KDE svn build, and kdepimlibs doesn't build because it needs
libical 0.33. It's not available in repos so I can't just install the
-devel package. How can I compile it? It doesn't respond to cmake nor
make. All I get, is a build.sh which just makes two useless archives
(.tar.gz & .zip) which don't have anything except a few .php files and a
README which doesn't have any useful information regarding compiling it.
Does anyone here know how to compile libical? (I got the source from
any help is greatly appreciated,
Past is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
But today is a gift.
That's why it's called, present.
Hi all. Of my three machines running F 10 beta, my T60 was the best behaving so far, until last week's updates. Now, the latest kernel does not boot, but I can manage by simply using the previous one. My main concern is with X, which stopped working at the same time.
As you may know, this T60 has an ati-radeon card, with which I was able to use Compiz since my first try of F10 beta. I just found out that rawhide reported today a new kernel that apparently addressed some ati problems, as well as a new ati xorg driver.
I would like to know if any body else has seen this problems and if the incoming updates might address them. Otherwise the T60 is perfectly functional so I would gladly wait for an update instead of a full installation. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I'm running F10Beta on an EeePC 701 (a small slow very early one,
compared to later). Every kernel entry in grub.conf ends with "rhgb
quiet" -- but I still get that tiresome display instead of proper boot-up
messages. Wherein have I goofed??
