I am not able to stop xfce-session to allow reboot or shutdown at logout!
It works with F11 - probably using the PolicyKit like with Gnome and kde.
(I do not understand that each and every program has to be configured
seperately to disable it ...)
I have had to do a clean install of FC12.
Whilst most things are working fine I have no sound at all. I had sound on
F11 but with F12 nothing.
I am running KDE but installed from the DVD image.
The sound card is on the motherboard which is a Gigabyte P31.
Any thoughts or pointers would be appreciated.

I have ported the development code of the open source ChromiumOS
project to 64-bit. Google Chrome OS will be officially released in
late 2010, and it will be based on the Chromium OS project.
My 64-bit build of ChromiumOS is called ChromiumOS64. Download your copy now!

Yes, exactly the point of my earlier reply.
If you 'cp' or 'mv' the vmlinuz and initrd.img to
your internal disks, then grub can find them.

All I can say is what I have successfully done, more than once.
--I can _install_ to my USB external disk.
---I installed f11 via first downloading iso to my internal disks.
and then followed hard-disk install procedure.
---I also installed f10 to my USB external disk, here via DVD.
In both cases the anaconda installer sees the USB as sda
and reorders my internal disks to sdb, sdc
--In neither case, could I _boot_ the USB installs, unless I
put the vmlinuz,initrd onto my internal disk
and referenced properly that internal disk location
with the proper "root (hd1,0)" in my grub.conf.
This root (hd1,0) line in grub.conf does not use the reordered positions for
disks as seen by anaconda. Instead it uses the internal disks
as if the USB is not there at all; because that is what my BIOS sees.
This is not pointless at all: my goal was to use external USB
for the installs because I had no easily used room on my internal disks.
Possibly I have misinterpreted what you are trying to do;
if so, sorry for the noise
I tried to upgrade F11 with soft raid F12. So far I used yum to upgrade
Fedora 1 up to F11. My yum update went wrong and my server wes forcefully
rebooted in the middle so none kernel from F11 works anymore.
After I booted F12 DVD - if I select "Install or Upgrade" and "Replace
existing Linux System" the probem is that my original raid raids are not
mounted. I can see:
<6>md6: radi1: raid set md0 active with 2 out of 2 mirrors
<6>md0: detected capacity change from 0 to xxxx
<3>"Buffer I/O error on device md0, logical block 0"
<3>"Buffer I/O error on device md0, logical block 9"
<6>md0: detected capacity change from xxxx to 0
<6>md: md0 is stopped
This whole raid process repeats iteslf several times and it takes about
However with "Replace existing Linux System" option, raid arrays are not
mounted successfuly and I cannot install F12 over F11.
But when I select rescue option from F12 DVD, the same errors are displayed
but my all old arrays are eventually mounted, so I can see all the files.
Also once arrays are mounted they appear working and healthy.
Do you please have any hint how can I refresh or repair my md arrayrs so it
does not take ages before these are mounted and at the first place they are
mounted every time?
Is there any safe raid command I can do in rescue mode so this is achieved
and I won't loss my data?
Do you think that my raid arrays created in times of Fefdora 1 can cause
This situation is very painful as I killed my day today trying to fix it
without luck :(
Thank you very much gyus,
PS: During my initial tries I reinstalled swap (as it was encrypted on the
old system and Anaconda always asked for pw which I do not have) and I did
it with the command:
mkswap -f -L swap /dev/VolGrolup00/LogVol00
Do you think I could have damaged my raid arrays by using "-f" option?
My name is Patrick and I'm a crossword puzzle addict.
The NYT publishes its puzzles in Across Lite format, and there's a
proprietary app (acrossl) which runs on Linux. Unfortunately it's
getting really old and is binary-only. It worked under F11 but now the
app gets a segfault on my netbook (though oddly it works fine on my
64-bit desktop, also on F12).
Since I'm on the road for 2 months I'm starting to get withdrawal
symptoms :-) F12 32-bit code is now compiled for the i686 and both the
app and the old compat libraries are i386 (not all of them have been
updated for F12). Could this be the problem?
I'm also willing to try other Across Lite apps, but I've never come
across a free one that was half-way decent.
anyone succeeded in running Lotus Notes 8.5 (or 8.5.1) on Fedora 12? The
RPM installs fine, however the preview pane or some preference dialogs
cannot be drawn. Copying some libgtk and libgdk libs to
/opt/ibm/lotus/notes fixes some problems, the GTK decorations are
