Open a terminal
edit the file /etc/pam.d/gdm
Comment out the fourth line so it reads:
#auth required pam_suceed_if.so user != root quiet
Switch user to root, or login as root as desired, not as circumscribed
by others who wish to tell you how to use your own computer.
Of course, use are your own risk: it is *your* computer.
Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
I may wish to offend you again in the future.

I've been trying to upgrade a Thinkpad T23 (ie very ancient) laptop
from Fedora-9 to Fedora-10 by running preupgrade.
The first stage - downloading the RPMs, etc - works fine,
and when I re-boot the install.img gets downloaded OK.
But then I get an error message suggesting that I "Try re-load".
I've repeated the process 3 or 4 times without success.
Fortunately, the old Fedora-9 system still seems to work fine.
I vaguely recall reading about some magic formula
that I can add to the Fedora-10 install entry in grub.conf ,
but have not been able to find this with google.
an external usb disk is mounted as
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk-1 type reiserfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,sync)
which mount occurs on double clicking of the usb icon on the desktop
but the konqueror window which also pops up
shows in its location bar
here there is
no leading / on media
no /disk-1 following media
and no /dev leading the /sdc1
is there documentation explaining these differences?
is this media:/sdc1 ever used by users as an alternative location
thanks for any help

on 29th January the fedora-package-announce list has announced several
package-updates for fedora 10.
But since today (31th January) yum didn't find any of these updates in
the updates repository. Normally all announced updates are at least on
the next day available.

I'm running the above command as user rsync (on both the local and

ssh-kegen stuff setup correctly. tested aka: ssh host1 who (no passwd

subdirs. If I add

I get prompted for a ssh passwd. Has anyone solved or done this?
Any help would be great!
Btw - yes, this is a retry. I think that the subject of the first try
was off a bit.
I'm trying to install F10 on a mb that uses the intel 845GV chipset. I
- in section 2.6.2 Python - that kernel modesetting drivers for intel
are in the works. I tried 'nomodeset' - didn't help. (Perhaps I need
another option, along with nomodeset?)
Is there some website that gives the status of this work? Or, is there
someone here that knows?
Or, where would I look for drivers? On the repository sites, I see lots
of 'python' files (in the updates directory) - I have no clue what to use.
Btw - yes, I tried the google linux search. No hits that help me.
I sat down to read my mail. Suddenly when I open firefox I get a radio
broadcast in Spanish. It lasted for 10 minutes no matter what web
location I was at, then suddenly it stopped.
Any explanations out there.

I just got a new HP Photosmart C5580 which can (among other things)
print on inkjet printable DVDs and CDs. My current goal (probably
hopeless :-) is to tweak the .ppd file for the copy of the printer
I made which defaults to the DVD tray and DVD paper size so that
any application I care to print from will print in the middle
of the DVD (a quest that will probably take years and cost
thousands of lives :-).
My first big mystery came with sample printouts I made of a
hashmark pattern I could use to measure how far off from the
center I am: Both inkscape and gimp print the pattern with
the exact same offsets from the center of the CD, but open
office prints with a completely different offset.
As near as I can tell, I've told every app the page size is
the same and there are no margins. They all print the marks
scaled the same with the same distance between marks, so
does anyone have any clue why open office thinks the center
of the media is in a different place? Is there some obscure
printer setup option I missed somewhere in OO?
Even if I can figure how to tweak the .ppd file, it won't
do much good if different applications use it a different way :-).
hi Great list,
I just find that the libgnome-2.24.1-7.fc10 has been disabled "esd" when it
This has caused the "gnome_sound_play()" doesn't work and some package such
"stardict" cannot play sound.
Why should we disable esd in libgnome? Could we enable it?
