Every time I boot my machine I get a message like this in logwatch
WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
ACPI Error (nseval-0159): I ...: 12 Time(s)
$ uname -r
I don't see anything in /var/log/messages and in /var/log/dmesg I see:
ACPI Error (nseval-0159): Insufficient arguments - method [_OSC] needs 5, found 4 
ie, the same error. Google returned a few hits but nothing that explained what this meant. I didn't find anything in redhat bugzilla.
So, what does it mean? Is it important?

I've got an F10 install running well, and I'd like to move the system to
a flash disk. This flash will become the boot device for a small system
I'm building. Can I just use "cp" and end up with a workable system? I
know that I need to do a grub install. Anything else?
I'd appreciate any clues about what I need to tweak on the resulting
flash to get it booting/running.

This weekend I have successfully installed kvm and qemu, and Win XP is
running in a virtual machine. A problem remains: Win XP installs with
German locale (the default, as I used a German installation cd), but a
strange keyboard layout results - some kind of qwertyu, it is not the US
one which I know.
In KDE (system settings - regional and language) I have set the "DE"
keyboard layout as well. Whenever I switch to "US" there, I immediatedly
get the correct layout in the Windows guest, and switching to "DE" again
in KDE brings back the strange layout in Win XP.
Any pointers to what may be configured wrong are welcome.
I'm trying to prepare to give some Linux tests and got a question that
I am confused with, even after digging in to the serial howto and
googling. Can somone give it a try?
2 to 4 seem important to me. 1 is the only option that seems not as
important but then the alias is needed for ttyS0, right? So what could
be the odd one out?
Which one of the following is NOT necessary if you want to be able to
use a serial connection to select a boot image from lilo, to view
kernel and init output, and log in as root?
1. /etc/modules.conf: alias /dev/ttyS0 serial
2. /etc/lilo.conf: serial=0,115200n8
3. /etc/lilo.conf: append="console=ttyS0,115200n8"
4. /etc/securetty: ttyS0
5. /etc/inittab: TO:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 115200 vt100

I have started using Redhat about Redhat 4 and started using Fedora
after RedHat 9.
I am a little more than a casual user. I develop embedded software and
use linux for my development platform but I don't develop linux code.
I currently have a fiber internet connection and downloads are normally
I went to http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-all and downloaded the
direct download for Fedora 10 and burned a DVD with K3B but the DVD
would not mount in my system.
I went back and downloaded the Bit Torrent and verified the sha1sum and
then burned another DVD with K3B and asked K3B to verify the write. All
went well until I tried to mount the DVD.
I get a popup with the following: Error

I haven't seen this described any where else. Can anyone give me a hand.
I built a bootable flash F10 using the wiki instructions, but I'm having
boot problems. I'm pretty sure it's a bios problem, since it never gets
1st try was X86-64 and it didn't boot on either of the 2 intel based
systems I tried. One system prints "boot error" and the other silently
2nd try was a 386 version and it booted correctly on my old AMD Athlon
box. But on the Intel boxes, same errors.
I'm sure there must be a bios setting that is incorrect, but I've tried
every bios setting that seems to make sense and it isn't working. If you
have an Intel bios and boot from a USB device, could by post your bios
I'm running KDE 4.2 on Fedora 10 x86_64. Sometime recently it's changed so

I notice that when I browse certain sites they can determing what city I
