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.
Gutenprint has driver for it,
This worked after I originally installed Fedora 11: If I plugged in a USB
stick or inserted a CD/DVD ROM, the new device notifier would inform me, and
allow me to open in Dolphin (as well as other choices). If I selected the
"Open in Dolphin", it would do just that.
As of recently, when I try to open, a dialog pops up asking for root password.
Same when I select "Safely remove". If I enter the password, things proceed
This behavior appears to shown up about the time I had sound permission
problems. Resolved the sound problem by modifying
security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms to add:
<console> 0600 <sound> 0600 root
These same two behaviors (sound and mount) showed up for me mid-life in
Fedora-8 too. The same fix resolved the sound problems then, and I lived with
entering the root password for USB devices until I finally upgraded to F11. It
was joy when device mounting worked again, however short lived.
Any thoughts on this?
