I was spec'ing a new laptop tonight, and noticed it had 1 GB of 'Turbo
Memory' -- this is a new Intel specification that uses flash memory to cache
frequently used items and is only available in Windows-land with Vista. It is
not CPU cache nor RAM.
Does anyone know of any work being done to access this new technology in
Brunswick, MD, USA
I just did:-
yum install gallery2
It installed with no errors.
The trouble is I now have no clue as to what to do next. What do I
have to do next, I can't see any *obvious* pages to browse to get it
Yes, I do have apache installed and running, and PHP, and mySql.
so far the installation of FC6 has gone relatively smoothly albeit some
additional learning and bumps due to the 64 bit architecture of this
The mother board is an Intel DG965RYCK which uses Intel's 965 express
chipset. Based upon what I've been able to find on the web, Intel has
released the drivers for this chipset to OSS, although there have been
issues as to what Intel actually released and how complete they might be.
Regardless I unable to run mplayer (or Realplayer) for that matter
without the display first freezing then going black followed by garbage
along the bottom of the screen. A Control-Alt-Backspace does not stop X
from running. The only way to recover the machine from this point is to
reboot the system. I am still able to connect from a remote system, its
just the display that has become unstable.
lspci -v shows the following for the graphics adapter

suggestions would be appreciated.
this is somehow off-topic, but hopefully someone here has been through
I just bought a shiny new Core 2 Duo machine (Intel DG33BU mobo), with
a nice 250G SATA disk. Fedora 7 installation went surprisingly well
(and fast), only problem was that onboard NIC was not recognized, but
upgrading the kernel offline fixed this. Everything is amazingly fast
BUT... I need this machine to dual-boot to Windows XP (still addicted
to some Windows-only games =( ). XP setup CD hangs just after showing
"examining hardware configuration" or something like that. It doesn't
really hangs, it just switches to a blank screen and sits there
forever (I already left it there for more than 15min to no avail).
Keyboard is responsive and HD led stays on. CTRL+ALT+DEL reboots as
I talked to IT guys at work and they told me they've been through this
already lots of times, it seems XP is unable to properly recognize the
disk when only Linux is installed on it (?!?), and only solution would
be to reformat the whole thing and install XP first.
Is that true?
My system is configured as:

GRUB is installed on MBR. All remaining space is sitting there,
waiting for XP to take over... =/
Anyone knows of a workaround? Should I try to create an additional
partition on the empty space and format it as VFAT hoping this would
make Windoze less stupid? Or am I doomed to remove all partitions and
start from scratch, starting with XP?
When a PDF page is displayed via the Acroread plugin in Firefox, the
(sub) window containing the displayed PDF info never gets focus. This
makes it impossible, among other things, to search the PDF using the
Acroread search function. If I save the PDF to a file and then display
it using acroread, the window gets focus in the normal way and search
What is going on? How can this be fixed?
Thanks - jon
Yes I know Fedora is a testing ground. Yes I know most of you tigers
think I am stupid and for some good grounds. But I am a muli-million
dollar person who worries not about gasoline prices or where the next
meal comes from.
But I DO worry why I can't get F8 to work. It works a few days and
then goes to hell. So I am back here on F7 which seems to work well. At
least the audio is good and I can do things I must.

Im having a devil of a time getting vsftpd configured for auth. with
an ldap backend on Fedora Core 5. I keep getting a 530 530 Login
Unable to make a connection. Please try again.
The server has a username incorrect message.
Anonymous works fine. I have standard vsftpd.conf here is the snippet:
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
# Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
# if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
# Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only
# has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will
# obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.
# Uncomment this if you want the anonymous FTP user to be able to create
# new directories.
# Activate directory messages - messages given to remote users when they
# go into a certain directory.
# Activate logging of uploads/downloads.
# You may fully customise the login banner string:
#ftpd_banner=Welcome to blah FTP service.
# You may specify a file of disallowed anonymous e-mail addresses. Apparently
# useful for combatting certain DoS attacks.
# (default follows)
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
# (default follows)
# You may activate the "-R" option to the builtin ls. This is disabled by
# default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large
# sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume
# the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.
#enable for standalone mode
User authentication is against an ldap server. That seems to be
working fine. AFP users can connect ok. I read about an issue with
the pam module, but that doesnt seem to be the case. I keep beating
this thing around and around with no joy so far.

What does it mean to see an rpm with a kernel of 2.6.10-1.741_FC3, when
we go to a site like http://www.kernel.org and see the latest kernel is
at 2.6.10? If one wanted to compile their own kernel from this site,
would they be losing fixes/etc. from the "-1.741_FC3" portion?
Thanks, still learning here...
