You point is valid in your own mind. You are just being argumentative
for the sake of posting text. You telling him (or others) that they
have no right to ask others to drop a subject is nothing less then you
being a list cop (that you yourself pointed out he was being).
Pot calling the kettle black?!

How do you unmute the microphone and turn up the volume for the
microphone? I am using Xlite Sip phone and I receive no audio from the
microphone. I am using Xlite for the SIP phone and using Fedora 8.

at least I don't get my fun by antagonizing others.

I currently have 3 computers running Fedora 8. I think it would probably
be a good thing to set up a local repository for yum, rather than
downloading each package 3 times.
I have looked at the howto at www.howtoforge.com, and I am not really
happy with the method described there. It involves picking a particular
mirror and using rsync to keep the local repository up to date.
It seems to me that this would have some problems. For one thing it puts
a bigger load on whichever mirror I am rsync'ing to. For another thing,
It seems to that there might be some security issues with just grabbing
the packages without checking the key as yum does.
Is there a better way to keep a local repository up to date? Ideally, I
would like to find a way to just download the packages that my local
users ask for, not the whole thing. And I would prefer to use the mirror
list at fedora rather than just use one particular server.
I would also prefer to automate the whole process rather than doing it
Does anybody have any ideas about this? Or would I be better off just
continuing to use the fedora repository?

Um, why exactly do you even stay on this list? I have yet to see
anything remotely resembling a helpful email from you; instead, it's
constant attacks, whether on people, on the project, on specific
Do you not have anything better to do or something?
I tend to use the command line most of the time but I occasionally use
Nautilus when, for example, I'm housekeeping image files and it's
useful to be able to see the images.
However, for me, nautilus has some very annoying defaults and I'm
wondering if they can be changed, i.e. :-
Nautilus opens a new window for every directory, this rapidly gets
annoying with deep hierarchies. Is there an option to get
Nautilus to open a new directory/folder in the *same* window?
(Windows can do it, when using XP I always have this option set)
When using the File - Open Location option nautilus defaults the
location to the home directory *and* selects it so that it
overwrites what's in the clipboard. This is *intensely* annoying
if you have just carefully selected the directory you want to go
to (in another window) and have put it in the copy buffer already.
Can I turn off the auto-entry of the home directory and/or the
automatic selection of the text?
