I have Googled this problem and tried everything I can think of to fix it,
but no luck. I hope someone can help.
I have a Nvidia based motherboard, two SATA drives running with NVRaid 1.
I upgraded to F10 from F8 and used the scsi_mod.scan=sync kernel option to
get around the RAID problem, then did the mkinitrd update, then updates
including kernel 18.104.22.168-159. All was well, and I have been using and
updating since Jan 12 until today.
With today's update, I finished the updates and rebooted and got the GRUB
prompt. OK, no problem, I booted from the F10 DVD, entered rescue mode,
grub> find /grub/grub.conf
(hd1,2) [note that it is NVRaid1, so found both drives]
grub> root (hd0,2)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
grub> setup (hd0)
checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no
checking if "/grub/stage1" exists... yes
checking if "/grub/stage2" exists... yes
checking if "/grub/e2fs_stage1_5"exists... yes
running "embed /grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (hd0)... 23 sectors are embedded
running "install /grub/stage1 (hd0) (hd0)1+23 p (hd0,2)/grub/stage2 /grub/grub.conf"... failed
error 22t: no such partition
OK, I also tried (hd1,2), and got the same exact messages except for the substitution of (hd1)
I exited grub shell and tried grub-install /dev/sda
got: /dev/sda does not have any corresponding BIOS drive
my device.map file is:
The device.map file is the same as it has always been, no change.
This is a Linux only machine, no dual boot. Partitions are:
/dev/mapper/nvidia_adgbjghcp3 ext3 /boot
/dev/mapper/nvidia_adgbjghcp5 ext3 /
I also tried booting the rescue with and without the scsi_mod.scan=sync
with no difference in the outcome. I have done this grub reinsall on
many different systems and never had this problem. Although they were not
RAID systems of any kind. I have never had to do a grub install on this
system until today. I don't know if it is related to NVRaid, RAID in
general, or something else.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, other than telling me to use Linux
software RAID. I want to get this configuration running.
Thank you in advance,
K3b is a piece of work...
I have 2 CD/DVD burner drives
Fedora doesn't like the Plextor...I guess
after downloading F10 for 9.5 hours, I tried to burn a ISO-DVD.
The simplest operation?
I wasted 4 blanks making 3 final copies that haved been checked to be good!.
The Plextor would get an error and then hang K3B
I'd kill it with kill -9 and then the drive would be locked up and even hung the eject command.
I had to reboot to open the drive. Sometimes I have to reboot to do a second operation!
and even once the "bring things back" facility had the #$%& thing running again.
OH YES! an old error reported forever
When making an ISO DVD, the verify write facility still doesn't work
even on the Sony drive. It says "couldn't find a DVD to verify.
Make things easy: if there is an error:
(1) release the drive announcing ithat the DVD is no longer blank!
(2) eject the DVD
(3) terminate all processes and subprocesses that stay running(i.e. die and go away)
(4) work on the program some more.

I use 'docker'. This tool has been the sole reason i switched back to using WindowMaker after having to compromise on using Gnome with all it's bells and whistles, for a long time.
After starting docker (and docking the app), you can start off any of the gnome-panel applets and they will appear in docker.
I prefer starting off:
If you are a regular user of WindowMaker, you might already know about the file ~/GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/autostart, where you can start up network-manager on login.
(note, i am not on my laptop right now, so can't confirm the exact commandline, if you have trouble, please let me know and I'll send you my configs when I can)

During the installation of Fedora 10 I choose UK for the keyboard
layout, but I when I log in gnome is using American layout.
If I add the UK in System->Preferences->Hardware->Keyboard it seems to
not make difference. I make it the default, but again, the layout is
I am experimenting with various niche window managers. I have removed
all KDE software and XFCE still runs ok. Can I also delete all of gnome
software without impacting XFCE? Usually I run only Xterm and Firefox.

I've been tracking an issue that prevents from printing certain paper sizes in GIMP.
It ended up being a bug in GTK+, fixed last December.
I've filed a bug on Fedora
It would be nice to have an updated version of GTK+ for Fedora 9 and 10.
I've got a Sabrent SBTV/FM tuner card in my media box. In fedora 9 the
tuner card worked perfectly with the right tuner type module argument.
However, after upgrading to fedora 10, the tuner is no longer usable.
It is listed under lspci, but dmesg returns no relevant information
other than acknowledging that the module has been loaded, and there are
no /dev/video devices created. Manually creating them has no effect.
I'm stumped and tvtime reports that it can't use /dev/video0 (since it
doesn't exist). Any ideas?
