The guy is on vacation, A teacher needs to connect to the network to teach a lesson. Nothing illegal or bad. Otherwise I would not ask this question. I do not want to use unauthorized network without permission. I can ask permission from Administration, but the guy that knows the key is not here. If there is no way to do it, then I rest my case! The person can die and then the key is lost to the network. There has to be a way to do it. The computer could access the network before. it was set up by wireless dhcp, but now someone who manages the network put a key and many users(teachers) cannot access the internet. The person that takes care of that is on vacation. Is there a way or not?
That is all that I am asking.
I have a clean install of F9, and I installed yum-updatesd.
I changed the yum-updatesd config file to send me notification via
e-mail, but I never get a notification, and restarted the service
(service yum-updatesd restart)
I've checked that updates are available via yum check-update, and
waited well over an hour (i.e over night) and still, no e-mail
I don't see any errors reported in any log files... /var/log/... what
should I be looking at.
My smtp server is configured properly to send mail, as I have other
processes that send mail fine.
Any suggestions as to why yum-updatesd isn't telling me of applicable updates?
BTW, it worked great on my F8 system, but that whole system was wiped
out when I upg F8 -> F9
When you delete the last email from a folder in evolution, it just shows
it as marked for delete but doesn't get hidden like the messages before
Anyone else seeing this?

What's with the cryptic device labels? What creates them? What was wrong
and what happened with the good ole' /dev/sda? and such? The same crap can
be found in grub.conf too. Is it selinux? Are my drives encrypted or
And what can I do to get back to the sane old-style drive names?
Yes, I know I can do mount to see what drive is mounted where, but I
really don't understand what purpose this sort of improvement serves.
Yes, PulseAudio server was not running. And when I tried to start it it
told me following:
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:996:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
E: alsa-util.c: Error opening PCM device plug:dmix:0: Tiedostoa tai
hakemistoa ei ole
E: module.c: Failed to load module "module-alsa-sink" (argument:
"device=plug:dmix:0"): initialization failed.
E: main.c: Module load failed.
E: main.c: Failed to initialize daemon.
So I guess something went off yesterday when I played with settings to
get sound for games like etqw too... I did what I did in Fedora 8 to get
sound for it and it worked perfectly yesterday althought it was just
What I did was adding:
load-module module-alsa-sink device=plug:dmix:0
load-module module-alsa-sink device=plug:dmix:1
into /etc/pulse/default.pa to get way to tell etqw that alsa device is
This worked fine in Fedora 8 without problems.
I reverted that and I got pulseaudio server running (but only after
putting SELinux to Permissive mode. As a funny side note: With that my
smaller KDM login problem disappeared too.)
[antti@Genesis ~]$ ps aux |grep pul
antti 2651 0.2 0.1 66348 4464 ? Ssl 14:59
0:00 /usr/bin/pulseaudio -D
antti 2659 0.0 0.0 5676 2056 ? S 14:59
antti 3015 0.0 0.0 5044 704 pts/2 S+ 15:05 0:00 grep
But now the etqw doesn't work unless I disable audio. :|
Mono audio comes out from some programs but I want stereo sound from
every single program. For example I cannot get sound from Amarok using
PulseAudio playback device, but with Alsa as playback device I get mono
output. It doesn't matter what channel configuration I am using. I can
put 5.1 and it still outputs only mono 1.0.
There is something wrong with pulseaudio. Phonon shows now "PulseAudio
Sound Server" on devices list (after installing most of the pulseaudio
and alsa plugins) but there is also device called "PulseAudio"...
My smolt profile:
Thanks for help. I hope we can get this solved.
By the way, should I file this up as a bug in Bugizilla? They suggest it
in release notes here:
"Any sound card not working out of the box should be reported as a bug."
I guess this is the order of things right now:
[antti@Genesis ~]$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Camera ]: USB-Audio - USB Camera
OmniVision Technologies, Inc. USB Camera at
usb-0000:00:10.3-1, full speed
1 [Juli ]: ICE1724 - ESI Juli@
ESI Juli@ at 0xb400, irq 17
2 [V8237 ]: VIA8237 - VIA 8237
VIA 8237 with ALC850 at 0x1000, irq 22
Somebody please explain what does my mic+webcam has to do on this since
there ain't even a driver for it? It's never ever worked in linux or
shown up in any pcm lists.
I need help making that ESI Juli@ 'card0' and default it as PCM device.
If that doesn't solve it then I don't know what to do.

How does one get a KEY to a secured network that could be WEP/WPA?
Why we had a unsecured wireless network at school and I could connect with a laptop. Everything got configured automatically, now, the computer does not connect automatically. It is asking for a KEY and I do not know the key. The Network Administrator is hard to find/on vacation. Is there a way easy/hard to find the key so that I can connect to this network?
I noticed that after upgrading the kernel on a Fedora 7 x86_64
box is the latest kernel (the box hadn't been rebooted for some months)
that I am now seeing the following in my messages log...
May 25 04:30:56 fourier kernel: EDAC i5000 MC0: NON-FATAL ERRORS Found!!! 1st NON-FATAL Err Reg= 0x10000
May 25 04:30:56 fourier kernel: EDAC MC0: CE row 1, channel 0, label "": (Branch=0 DRAM-Bank=3 RDWR=Read RAS=14339 CAS=672, CE Err=0x10000)
These messages always occur on DRAM-Bank 3 and are always NON-FATAL. The messages appear roughly once
an hour and are rarely repeated immediately. This machine contains a Tyan Tempest i5000XL motherboard
with ECC memory installed. Does anyone know if the recent kernels had any changes which made these
motherboard chipset report ECC memory errors which were not reported in the past? I haven't been
able to reproduce these errors in memtest86 yet with or without ECC. So I am wondering if I am seeing
noise from the EDAC driver or real ECC errors. Thanks in advance for any insights on this.
I installed F9 and was trying to listen to my favorite radio station but
I couldn't find mplayerplug-in. Some of you said to get
gecko-mediaplayer instead. I downloaded it with no problems and it
shows up in the plugins list but it doesn't work. There is also a
Mozplugger at the top that appears not to be configured properly.
MozPlugger 1.10.1 handles QuickTime and Windows Media Player Plugin
File name: nswrapper_32_32.mozplugger.so
MozPlugger version 1.10.1, written by Fredrik Hübinette, Louis
Bavoil and Peter Leese.
For documentation on how to configure mozplugger, check the man
page. (type man mozplugger)
Configuration file: Not found!
Helper binary: Not found!
Controller binary: Not found!
It lists al the mime types below this and they are all enabled. Any
ideas where to start trying to figure out why it doesn't work?
