I just finished installing Win XP Pro (32 bit) on an F11 box using the
create wizard. Everything seemed to go OK. Windows updated itself after
several reboots to sp3 with all of the latest security patches. Seems to run
fine for right now.
My question is about the documentation for virt manager. Looking at the
on-line manual installed for it I noticed I never saw several of the screens
shown there during the setup phase. Is the documentation really up to date?

I have had an unprecented pair of events last night and this morning - two
machines (both Dell Inspiron 530s desktops) have died completely (
unbootable) - having been running on f11 very successfully for some time. I
had no reason to suspect the hardware at all and both were running fine from
new a couple of years ago - but I am now wondering if this has anything to
do with updates that came in on 28th October. The new kernel and a number of
other updates were installed yesterday morning on both machines. Both were
also using ext4 files systems.
I would like to know if this is a chance event or related to kernel changes,
particularly related to ext4?
If nobody else has anything remotely similar happen then I will conclude
that I am just very very unlucky - but I would like to know if anybody
else has had a mysterious total failure of their system in the past 24

Attempting to install fedora 12, I get a message that there is not
enough memory to install in graphic mode and it reverts to a text mode
and installs some prepackaged set of applications. It is a system with
384 megabytes of memory and the graphic installer worked with fedora 11.
How much memory does the graphic installer need and/or is there another
way I can get to select a complete set of packages with the text based

I have tried Fedora 12 and installed httpd with php found a strange thing.
My httpd always returns "Connection: close" header with response, even if i
am using Connection: keep-alive header (both http1.0 and 1.1). I tried to
check response with LWP, trough socket, and using FF3 with live headers
plugin. Is this a misconfiguration of apache or something? Wha'ts the
I have a client that uses skype for group IM sessions when we do production
release calls. I've installed Skype on my Fedora 11 box but when I click on
the 'join public chat' link the group sends out (running firefox) I get this:
"Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (skype)
isn't associated with any program."
I tried following the directions found here:
but it still didn't work.
Thanks in advance

On my #2 PC, I had finally given up on preupgrading. I
copied /home/btth onto an external hard drive; did a fresh install; copied
/home/btth back (and did "chown -R btth:btth" on it just in case); did a
lot of customizing; did a PackageKit update, which called for rebooting;
did the reboot. That failed.
Somewhere among all the above, I got disgusted with the
display, which turned out to be 800x600 -- despite being connected
directly (no KVM switch!) to the 1680x1050 monitor. The app I tried to
correct with turned out (later, on another machine) *not* to be
system-config-display, but something called "gnome-display-properties"; so
I edited 1680x1050 into xorg.conf.
When I reboot, the boot messages look normal to me,
except for the left edge being truncated by one character -- until it hits
this line :
"[r]egistering binary handler for Windows applications [OK]"
At that point the whole display flashes, several times
per second for several seconds -- and then everything stops.
I can get into the machine with ssh.
I did; became root; took "Windows applications" with
upper case W as a clue; commanded "yum update wine"; and found wine up to
date. I tried "yum update samba" -- and found samba available but not
Still as root by way of ssh, I tried editing xorg.conf,
but saw nothing to change.
I tried googling the whole message above. That got
surprisingly few hits, all or nearly all in the Far East -- with a couple
in what looks like some Indonesian language, and several with a line I
believe to be Japanese, but otherwise all format of some enigmatic sort,
and no text.
So I took one more shot :
[root@Hbsk X11]# system-config-display Couldn't start X server on card 0
Couldn't start X server with old config, trying with a fresh configuration
Couldn't start X server on card 0
Error, failed to start X server.

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
