Well, I finally got myself in a position where I could finally update
from F8 to F11 - much to the complaining of another family member.
Since I wanted to reorganize my file system structure, I decided to just
back it up and do a fresh install of F11 (and from the looks of things,
I'm glad I did). For the most part, after using it a couple of days, it
seems to run okay with a few nuisances that I wanted to verify if anyone
else is having the same issues or if there is a setting somewhere I'm
not aware of.
- On varying software packages, occasionally (actually rarely) when I
click on an icon or menu option I get a different menu or option than
what I selected even though the display indicated that I successfully
selected what I wanted.
- Upon installation, the system was unable to determine what type of
monitor was available and doesn't give me the option to manually select
the monitor's type or capabilities. Since the xorg.conf file is not
used in F11, I can't simply edit it with the display mode to use and
when I create a new one it refuses to use the display settings I put in
therby not taking advantage of the full capabilities of my monitor.
- When attempting to select multiple files & folder in Nautilus, instead
of selecting the folders, it will not select them but expands them (and
their contents) until after I have selected a few other files / folders
first. - Sounds like a bug to me.
- I can no longer play MP3 files with Rythymbox and in Nautilus (audio
preview) by default in F11 where it could in F8! (This is a major issue
with my family)
I am sure more issues will be posted later as I recognize them but if
someone could offer suggestions, it would be helpful.
What I hate about going to a new version of Fedora is configuring all
the media handling software.
Well on my machine in F11 it was a breeze. I am running youtube videos,
playing npr programs (which used to give me headaches) and have gotten
CNN videos to work which used to be very difficult. I was amazed.
Good job to the developers.
I have a Dell Power Edge 1435SC that is running F10. I followed the
preupgrade procedure on
When the machine rebooted it asked me to select the Ethernet connection
to update over using the NetworkManager. I couldn't get this to work.
On a positive note, when I rebooted the machine, F10 still worked. I
was not using the NetworkManager with F10...
$ chkconfig | grep etw
NetworkManager 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
network 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
Is there a way around this?
I posted this on fedoraforum.org when I was testing the preview F11
and just did again to see if anyone using F11 release has any ideas,
but I thought I'd try the mailing list as well:

Does anyone have any thoughts about this, the clearcase gui tools and
ICAClient are the only two motif applications I have readily available
to test (wish those would just move off motif, but I'm doubting that
IBM will do anythign with clearcase anytime remotely soon).
Just looking for general ideas on how to troubleshoot this. I don't
understand font loading anymore, especially with the UTF-8 encoding
stuff, so I don't know why LANG=C would actually allow this to work.
Can anyone provide a short primer on how that works, or let me know
what's a good tool to try to debug font loading and find out what
fonts it either can't load, or can't find?

I may have spoken too soon. Interesting issue though. By installing the
correct i386 library I was able to run the Citrix client via my web browser
- I am unable though to run the client by itself. If I run
/usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr - I get this error:
*/usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr: error while loading shared libraries:
libXm.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory*
So after some poking around, I found that OpenMotif is supposed to have
libXm.so.3 library. I install both i386 and x86_64 packages from
ftp://ftp.ics.com/openmotif/2.3/2.3.1/, which I got that link directly from
I tried to run it after that and got the same error. So; I uninstalled then
reinstalled the Citrix client, but I'm still getting the same issue. I've
tried 4 different version of openmotif and I'm still getting the same error.
Please help me understand this library issue. Thanks.

I need to copy a document this morning with the HP Scanjet 5370C form
this up to date F-10 computer. The scan function worked without a
problem in F-9, "out of the box" I believe? Now I am getting the
following error message:
(xsane:16823): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment
with non-zero page size is deprecated
Is there something else I need to do? I don't use the scanner often but
need it now.
It doesn't seem to work for me, despite what http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/

When downloading Gutenprint drivers for Fedora,
do you get the Gutenprint or gutenprint-cups or both.
My printer is a new Epson-RX595 and Fedora 10 doesn't have driver for it.
