I'm using the nouveau driver in a fresh F12 installation on a Thinkpad
T61. When I click the battery icon on the taskbar, it doesn't show any
action choices, such as suspend or shutdown.
In F11 (though I was using the nvidia drivers on this machine and I have
an ATI on the machine I just checked), left-click showed those actions
and right-click showed Preferences and Power history.
Am I missing some package?

Since I upgraded to F12, I have noticed that it is very slow to respond
to clicks in the task bar - i.e., a long delay if I click the 'fedora'
start button or any of the applications in the 'Task Switcher' widget.
Discernibly slower than F11
FWIW, I am booting with nomodesetting option and using 'nv' driver with
an xorg.conf setting (the same as I was using in F11) because I simply
cannot get 1280x1024 with the nouveau driver, even with 'nomodesetting'
Anyone else notice this? Is there something I am doing wrong?

After some recent updates (which included a new ati driver)
firefox exhibits this weird behavior on my system. When I
start firefox, the first time it gets the focus, it flickers
once like it just decided it needed to redraw the whole
screen. (I have focus set to follow the mouse).
After it does it that once, it is OK, I can move focus back
and forth and no flickering happens till I exit firefox
and restart it, then I get the initial flicker again.
I don't see any other applications behave this way, just
firefox, and firefox wasn't doing it till the last round
It seems relatively harmless, but I was just curious if
it was only me :-).
I just built a system with these components:
EVGA GT220 1GB PCI-Express Video Card
Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P AMD 790X + SB750
AMD Phenom II 965
Since I didn't receive my hard drives or optical drives yet,
I tried Fedora 12 Live USB booting this system to test it.
It dies during boot (or at least the video is screwed up,
I can't tell for sure if it's completely dead). The last thing
it prints is this:
pci 0000:00:00.0: BAR 3: address space collision on of device
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Pointer to BIT loadval table invalid
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0xD6B5: Init table command not found: 0x8C
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0xDEA4: Init table command not found: 0x00
I tried 32 and 64 bit Live USBs and I tried nomodeset.
I'm assuming the problem is related to the video card based
on the last messages I see, but I'm not sure.
I thought I had screwed up something when I built this system,
so I tried Mythbuntu 9.10 Live USB... that worked
perfectly. This is going to be a Mythbuntu system anyway, so
it's not a big deal that it doesn't work in Fedora. But I will file
a bug report if somebody tells me what to file it against and what
additional information to provide (and how to get that information
from a hung live USB boot environment). I had to take a picture
of the screen to get the above information because it only
shows up for about 0.5 seconds before the screen blanks.
I am currently using a Plantronics C60 headset on my Fedora box. However I
do have a realtek intergrated soundcard that I would like to use from time
to time on the same computer. After having checked out the sounds output
page in the preferences menu of FC12 there is only mention of the C60 device
and no mention of the realtek device there. How can I go about setting up my
realtek card in FC12?. This machine is a duel boot PC with windows XP and
the realtek card is working fine in there so am sure that it would appear to
be working okay.
If someone can give me some easy to follow advice on how to add in my
realtek card that would be great.

I am running Fedora 12 x86_64 with all the updates as of this morning
installed and I also enabled the Skype repository.
If I install skype 18.104.22.168 via yum, it sees and detects correctly the
webcam (/dev/video). When I press "test" I see myself in the skype
window. but there is no way to make it use audio. It lists several
possible audio in/out devices but none works (this is an ASUS card
with an nVidia on-board chipset for video and audio).
If I download and start the static binary of skype 2.1.something from
the Skype website the opposite happens. Audio is recognized
immediately (I've just done a voice call without problems) but skype
can't use the webcam. It sees the /dev/video just like the rpm version
but when I push the test button nothing happens. There is no error
message on the command line.
A first search online only returned this page:
Right now I have that .so file, but in another location:
rpm -qa | grep v4l
[root@polaris ~]# rpm -ql libv4l | more
and if I try to use it with LD_PRELOAD I get:
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib64/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
which, I imagine, is due to the fact that the skype static binary I'm
using is 32 bit, not 64.
Since the webcam is working just fine with Cheese, I would appreciate
some feedback before installing something else that could screw things
up. Would installing libv4l-0.6.3-1.fc12.i686 solve the problem above without creating other problems?
If not, were else should I look to gather more info as to what's
causing the webcam problem?
Ninux Day: here's why you too may need your "neighborhood Internet":
When running an update today I ran into this dependency problem:
kernel-uname-r = 22.214.171.124-145.fc12.i686.PAE is needed by package kmod-nvidia-126.96.36.199-145.fc12.i686.PAE-190.42-1.fc12.6.i686 (rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing)
However, I'm running 188.8.131.52-127.fc12.i686.PAE and I don't see the 184.108.40.206 kernel in any of the repos (updates or updates-testing)
Is there a new kernel? Or is there a problem with the kmod-nvidia package in updates-testing?

I know this is technically not a fedora question, but I'm hoping to leverage
on the collective smarts here.
I recently received a Sandisk Cruzer 16GB. I successfully removed all the U3
However, after converting the fs type to ext3, GParted displays a used space
of around 900MB. df displays a different amount and qtparted displays yet
another amount. Converting back to fat32 in GParted displays 15MB of usage
whereas converting in Windows displays 8kB usage.
With ext4, GParted displays a used amount of ~450MB.
The total size is mostly correct with regards to Sandisk's 16GB actually
being 16billion byes. What is a new filesystem displaying false used space
readings? What is happening?
