I just installed FC10 on my home server. I access it via xrdp. The
first time I tried to install some packages via the graphical package
manager it told me that I was not using a local console, and exited.
This machine doesn't have a console! How are we supposed to administer
I upgraded to fedora 10 about a month ago. And since then mplayer
doesn't play videos smoothly. The sound is ok, but the video plays to
slow for a couple of seconds, then it plays to fast, to catch up with
the sound, then it slows down again and so on.
I did a fresh install from the live cd, but i reused the old home dir,
so the user settings stayed the same.
I installed Mplayer from the rpmfusion repo. I use the x86-64
distribution, on an AMD Pheom II X3.
My Brother has similar problems on a completely fresh install (including
home dir) on a core 2 duo laptop.
I'm trying to get WIFI working on my new DELL and I've been told to try
yum search ndiswrapper
and varients, but nothing was found. I then found RPMs using rpmsearch and
Now when I try 'yum localinstall' it adds the kernel as a dependancy,
downloads it, and then errors saying it is already installed.
If I try 'rpm -i' it fails on dependancy for /boot/vmlinuz
I've included the session log. Has anyone any suggestions?

For those (like me) who wish to avoid proprietary firmware, they have
been moved since Fedora 10 into a single package called kernel-firmware.
Can I uncheck this kernel-firmware package during the custom
installation process within Anaconda, or is this done otherwise?
Is a custom install to have minimalised installation, only possible to
preform with a 4x.GB DVD release, or is this option also available in
the live CDs/USBs?
Has anyone installed freeNX Server on FC10, how did it go ? I'am aware
that you have to install xorg-x11-fonts-misc in FC10.
Please no guesses from those who have installed it in FC 7, 8 , it has a
different set of problems in FC10 .
I have installed it in every FC since FC6.
I have this Netgear Switch GS108 that has apparently failed. Before I
buy a new one I'd
like to know whether this is known issue with this type of unit or
Netgear hardware in
general. This unit I have is an 8-port switch.
I perused some reading here and there and they point out to faulty
capacitors in the
unit. The fault causes what they call "Blinking lights of death", that
is, all lights blink on
and off repeatedly. Unplugging the unit and plugging it back in unit
Any network hardware experts know about this?
Could some kind soul make an rpm and put it into a repository for
gnome-format? It's at
http://live.gnome.org/gnome-format -- and there are .debs there, but
It *might* (I'm told) be able to handle the trouble some of us
have been having wiping Conficker-prone M$-foulness (automount, I think)
off thumb drives.

Remember I know precious little of what I am talking about.
This is going to sound vague, but here goes...
I have a dual opteron system that has been acting as the worldly node
for a small cluster of computers since September, 2004. The machine is
running the latest x86_64 Fedora 10 kernel that I recently loaded (April
2). The machine reboots without warning. I can't find the cause in log
files (maybe I'm not looking in the correct log).
I'm currently running memtest. If all of the tests pass, could the
community suggest other diagnostic tasks or information I could post to
help diagnose the problem?
I wish I could be more specific,
