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?

First, apologies if this has been asked before. I did look at the
fedora-list archives, but they're arranged by date and I don't know
which month(s) to look at. (Is there a search facility somewhere?)
I'm using Fedora 7 with all updates applied (except for a very recent
Perl update that the update program couldn't find).
I have been using xcdroast to save photos onto CDs. I always write
multi-session CDs so that I can keep adding photos until the disk is
nearly full. Some time over the past 5 months xcdroast seems to have
stopped working. After some Googling I found that a kernel update was
(probably) responsible and that it works when run as root. That would be
an acceptable temporary solution, but for me it doesn't work. xcdroast
starts up but never sees a CD in the CD-writer. Asking xcdroast to scan
for devices causes it to hang. This is true for both ordinary users and
After further investigation I found an alternative CD burning program
called graveman and tried it. It hangs on startup for both ordinary
users and root.
Finally I tried to use the CD burning facility built in to Nautilus. The
trouble now is that I can't find out whether Nautilus will write a new
session to a multi-session CD. There's no option to control that AFAICS.
So I haven't clicked the write-to-disc button to see if it works.
If necessary I could learn how to use cdrecord (or is it wodim now?),
but that's far more complicated than I need and I'm fast losing the will
to live. ;-) Any suggestions?

I'm running Fedora8 x86-64 with cups-1.3.6-2fc8 and print to an Epson
C88 printer attached to an EpsonNet print server. Other machines on my
home network (Vista, slackware, FreeBSD) can print just fine with this
setup, but for some reason on the Fedora8 machine print jobs are never
removed from the queue after the print job completes. The job just sits
there as "active" (even though the entire document has printed), and
blocks subsequent print jobs until I manually "lprm" the job. Then the
next job prints, and again sits there until I lprm that job, and so on.
Cups is configured identically on my slackware machine but on that
machine the jobs are removed properly.
What should I be looking for to fix this?
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 :)

I originally started this under the Archive Search thread but i wanted to
put in an appropriate subject line.
I was having trouble getting the Verizon EVDO 5750 Broadband Card to work.
There are several how to's out there but some are, of course, different from
others. The one that set me sailing was :
This article uses the 5740 but taking that into account in the initial
steps, all the scripts that follow worked as is.
Thanks again for the suggestions and links.
I have an F8 system that lists "hsqldb" as one of the users on the login
screen. The system is not connected to the internet and I am the only one
with access. The hsqldb rpm is installed. I see it as an entry in
system-config-users but can't figure out why.

After running "yum update" last night and getting, among other things, an
update to the above version of cups, one of my printers no longer works.
I have a Samsung ML-1210 connected via the parallel port to a machine running
F8/x86_64. After the update, I can no longer get anything to print.
Going through system-config-printer and hitting "print test page" brings up a
window that say s"Submitted Test page submitted as job 79" (the number
increments every time) but nothing prints and the busy light on the printer
never starts flashing so it apparently receives no data. The button changes
from "print test page" to "Cancel tests" when I close the "submitted" window, so
I click that, and that's all there is to that. The "Printer state" line on the
screen never changes from "idle".
Going through http://localhost:631 and printing a test page from there says
that the test page was sent, but when I check the list of jobs there are "no
jobs" and the printer never does anything at all there either.
I have removed and reinstalled the ML-1210 printer several times through
system-config-printer but nothing changes. I have switched the printer off and
back on, and even rebooted the whole computer a couple of times.
Here is what I get in /var/log/cups/error.log when I click the "print test
page" button in system-config-printer:
I [28/Feb/2008:19:46:22 -0600] [Job 79] Adding start banner page "none".

I've got 4 internal and two external hard drives.
Every time I boot and log in I find at least one of my internal drives
mounts in a different directory than it had previously (the others may
as well, but I've not yet noticed - read on).
It's never the same directory (it's either "/media/disk"
"/media/disk-1", or "/media/disk-2" or "/media/disk-3").
I've got a symlink from a directory in ~/ to a subdirectory on one of my
internal drives and it breaks with every boot.
Is this a bug or a feature? ;)
How might I get my drives to mount in the same place every time?
I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
