I hope the subject line is self-explanatory, but in case it isn't, does anyone
have Campcaster (radio station automation software) in an rpm? It seems the
default builds are .debs.

After trying for a couple of days to get Evolution NOT to return those infamous sync errors
that it has been doing for years, after reading a LOT on the Net about this and other evolution
problems, after trying to import my old mailboxes (does not work always, or actually, it almost
never works), after trying to get it to understand an Mbox layout, and doing evrything again
and again, it now freezes at random and even crashed at typing email number 2.
Evolution is I am sorry to say probably the most disappointing email client I have ever worked
with. Back to the basics.

Wow, again, the community comes with the MANsers! I'll post my specs when I
get in, but I'm shocked to see that Mozilla doesn't have much love for our
market. I assumed that since it was FOSS that it would give more love to
Linux, but I guess Windows has more pull than I thought. That's what I get
for ASSuming things. Reid, I look forward to "nightly" adventures... so
I'll look into the latest beta build too.
Oh and to confirm, it probably is my nVidia car. Ever since I've been
running this system and learning about Linux (9+ months), there has ALWAYS
been a common denominator... and that's my graphics card (nVidia GeForce
8600 GT). If I didn't need 3D support A LOT of my issues would have gone
away. Amazing how troublesome this awesome little graphics card has become
to FOSS users.

what are some good sites to get statistics on linux installations,

to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look at* it.

I'm not certain I follow how the ISP gets involved with the definition
of localhost in /etc/hosts, but I haven't seen any reason not to call
the lack of an IPv6 definition for localhost (specifically not
"localhost6") a bug and to try to get it fixed.
My inclination is to file a bug against the F11 alpha when it comes out
next week, since it's anaconda that creates the default file content. I
expect some resistance to change, but I can only hope that BZ doesn't
become the venue of a debate on it, though.

Is there some reason why rawhide's ypbind should fail to bind, if I have
passwd: files nis
shadow: files nis
group: files nis
<other stuff snipped>
This worked fine on F10, and it works OK if I downgrade to the F10
ypbind rawhide. But with the rawhide version, the nis server reports
errors like this:
Feb 2 14:15:28 server2 ypserv: refused connect from
192.168.0.89:56329 to procedure ypproc_match (nisavtech,shadow.byname;-1)
Has something changed with nis sharing of shadow password data?

I have a Kingston 8G DataTraveler USB stick. When I plug it into one of
the USB 2.0 ports on my Fedora 10 PC (x86_64), the kernel detects it,
and after some magic, Gnome mounts it on my desktop - everything is
When I use Nautilus to copy files to it (say a 1 GB movie file), the
transfer speed begins in the 20 MBps range, but quickly drops to 1.5
MBps or less. Obviously, this increases transfer time exceptionally,
essentially rendering the USB stick useless.
I've tried reformatting (as vfat) the stick, deleting and recreating the
partition on it, all several times and to no avail.
The same stick works just fine on my HP Compaq nx7400 Fedora 10 laptop.
I now assume something is either amiss with my PC, or there's a bug
somewhere in Fedora 10 killing USB performance. I've tried searching
for both, but I've come up up with nada.
My PC has an Asus P5Q-E motherboard, an Intel E8400, and 4 GB of RAM. Is
there something about this combination of hardware (don't forget the USB
stick) when used in conjunction with the x86_64 version of Fedora 10,
leads to shitty USB performance?

I am used to using portmap with nfs. Where is the documentation on
the new rpcbind programs used on Fedora 10?
When I try to mount a partition across the network on the new system,
I am getting
mount /numbers1 mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required
for remote locking. mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks
local, or start statd.

When I try to mount one of the new system's partition on an older
system, the older system
says that the nfs server is not working.
