when I try to run k9copy it will crash when I try to open a DVD.
It worked fine on my other box, 32 bit.
This is an Athlon x2 64 bit.
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 220.127.116.11-18.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 13 04:54:47 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa k9copy
I bring up the GUI and it shows: CDW/DVD TS-H492A (/dev/sr1)
Which is correct, with a DVD in it.
Going to settings -> "devices not detected by k9copy"
I added in the drive.
Still when the open file icon is clicked it crashes.
When run from an xterm:
[mick@localhost ~]# k9copy
KCrash: Application 'k9copy' crashing...
Could not find 'drkonqi' executable.
KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly.
Nothing is added to /var/log/messages,
Death before Decaf!!!
When I do a End Session it doesn't drop to the Login Window, it goes to
Runlevel 3 (shell)
I have this problem on three FC8 boxes. And it's very annoying when you
have more that one user on a box.
It appears that Mesa is supposed to replace OpenGL for F8 and I assume
for F9 (haven't upgraded yet), but the croquet application doesn't work,
due to an undefined module. I looked for an implementation of OpenGl
for F8 and couldn't find it. Does anyone have a hint, a known
repository or ??? that might supply the required library?
As of today I cannot get sound at all. PulseAudio Volume Control keeps
ringing saying that "connection failed: connection refused". And Phonon
says that PulseAudio doesn't work. All the rest of the apps say that
they cannot do playback at all and give various error reports.

On all earlier versions of Fedora/kde I was able to add a 'non kde app'
and give it any icon I wanted . I suspect I still can but the mechanism
obviously is different on Fedora 9/KDE 4 .
Any quick pointers ?

I've found numerous guides to installing all of the MS core fonts via a
spec file in F9, but how do I install a single TTF font in Fedora 9?
System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel -> Appearances shows me available
fonts, but I can't find a tool to add a font.

Wondering if anyone has successfully upgraded directly from Fedora6 to
Fedora9 .. if that is even supported at all?
If yes, any pointers will be greatly appreciated and/or links to steps.
If not, I'm fine too and will just reinstall my workstation ... (my
files are in network anyway....)
thanks in advance.
The latest version of gutenprint is supposedly able to support this
printer. Any idea where I find that? If there is one issue with Linux
it's that by the time printer and scanner hardware is supported it's no
longer in production. I can't count how many scanners I have bought
(new) which just didn't work, and by the time they worked the new model
or new firmware was out and I couldn't buy the one that works.
Anyway, I would like to use this setup because it's quite neat but
Alternatively, if I could use the USB printer and scanner directly from
Windows under kvm without causing the working system printers to die, I
would do that. Last time I tried the printer worked but the rest of the
system printers hung after I did it. :-(

I have been using F8 for a while now and simply put it was the only distro that supported my laptop (fairly) well.
Today I accepted what appeared to be 'typical' updates. The size of the update concerned me slightly (500Mb) but turned to horror when it finished and I rebooted.
My useful KDE3 system has been replaced by KDE4! Not only that but X won't start because the previously installed Theme cannot be found. Oh and a minor issue - my net card no longer works.
I'd like to point out that KDE4, by it's own authors is not intended to be for mainstream use:
"KDE 4.0 is only expected to be used by early adopters, not every KDE 3.5 user (and IMHO KDE 4.0 shouldn't be pushed onto other user types like planned for Kubuntu ShipIt [btw said to have only 6 months support for its packages])."
But pushed (more like shoved) I was and I now have a completely unusable, broken system that I have reply upon daily for development. Everyone is jumping on the KDE4 band-wagon but the wagon is missing three wheels. This is a complete disaster of a decision to make KDE4 the default install and sets-back Linux for anyone but the 'bleeders'.
KDE4 should NEVER be installed over KDE without explicit permission of the user. Ever. Period.
