On a system I have installed clean F10 the powersave kicks in on the monitor
just fine if set in the screensaver area in gnome for a logged in user.
However if the user logs out, then the screen blanks out after some period
as expected, but the monitor does not go into powersave any any point.
Can someone tell me where the settings are for the timings for these two
features of GDM? I presume that this is something that can be set somewhere?

I have an external, USB connected, SATA drive divided into two
partitions with labels SATA1, SATA2. I'd like to set up autofs to
automount the drive when I plug it into the USB port and power it up.
In auto.master I have:
/mnt /etc/auto.misc --timeout 60
and in /etc/auto.misc I have:
sata1 -fstype=ext3 :SATA1
sata2 -fstype=ext3 :SATA2
I restarted autofs, no luck. Is there a way to automount my drive using
just the labels?
Thanks - Tod
My .02 worth on several subjects.
Network Manager since FC8 has been causing more grief to me than it is
worth. It looks like it needs to look at
the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ files for eth0 and if it is there
don't screw things up (or at least prompt before destruction).
The startup screen with the travelling bars near the bottom of the
screen is a waste of time. There is a reason I want to see what the box
is doing, and prefer the FC9 behavior. With FC9 I could hit a key and
watch for problems. I didn't find any documentation on how to change
that to the FC9 behavior.
Firefox refuses to handle a bad certificate. That is all well and good,
until your dealing with a firewall that doesn't have one that is valid.
I didn't find a way to get beyond the complaint about the certificate.
I had to grab my laptop with FC9 to deal with that problem. FC10 made
doing anything with the https interface impossible.
My Desktop system at work is an HP Integrity (IA64) with Fedora 9 and a
GNOME desktop. Because I do a lot of compiling under xemacs, I ssh -X
to a RHEL 5.2 system to run xemacs. Under RHEL 4, everything worked
fine, but under RHEL 5.2 I am unable to click on any buttons on a dialog
box. Everything else works fine.
If I log into a RHEL 5.2 console through a KVM, things work fine. So,
the issue seems to be some combination of a Fedora 9 IA64 host running
xemacs through ssh and X forwarding through the tunnel.
One solution is that I could install RHEL 5.1 on the workstation, but I
would prefer Fedora. AFAIK, Fedora 10 is not yet available for IA64.

I have a new Dell toy on which I installed F10. I had
been running F8 on a Vaio with a vanilla kernel that
had the athos drivers compiled in.
Setup installed the PAE kernel. Using rpmfusion, I
installed broadcom-wl along with the dependencies.
I am not at all sure why it installed two kmod-wl. Both are
Is the kernel dependency correct? Does this mean that - to
use wireless - I should boot from the non-PAE kernel?
I hate to ask - I feel stupid - but what is the difference
between rpmfusion free and nonfree? Is this a licensing

I upgraded from F8>F9 and when I tried to use my old xorg.conf configured to use
dual head and it failed something has changed from f8 to f9 so I need
help with a
working dual head xorg.conf file.

The subject says it all really. I'm running Fedora 9 and want to use
EXT4. I realize there is support in the 2.6.27 but I've read that all the
goddies are not in until 2.6.28. So, will Fedora 9 get it or do I have to
upgrade to Fedora 10?
Is anyone using EXT4 and software RAIDs (5)?
