Try the following:
$ alsamixer -c0
after adjusting those to your preference save your settings with
$ su -c '/sbin/alsactl store'
put in your password and settings should be saved for next reboot, ***unless*** an update(s) breaks your configuration and let us hope that those things don't happen :)
Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
I have a terebyte sata drive that I need to securely wipe clean. It
originally had 2 partitions. I deleted them using `fdisk', rebooted,
and then as root ran
shred -vz /dev/sdd
The drive is capable of about 60MB/sec, but shred is only "shredding"
about 25MB every 5 seconds according to its output. Since the default
number of passes is 25, this works out to about 5 days.
The `shred' process is running at 100% CPU, presumably computing
the special random patterns for erasure. Since I have 4 CPUs
would creating 4 unformatted partions on the drive and then running
shred -vz /dev/sdd1
shred -vz /dev/sdd2
shred -vz /dev/sdd3
shred -vz /dev/sdd4
in parallel cut my time? Would be just as secure?
I am running alpine-2.00-1.fc10.x86_64 on an F10 box. If I get a message with
an html or file attachment and I try to open it, I get an error that
"Firefox can't find the file at /tmp/img--46112.htm" The correct program opens
up but I always get the can't find file errors. If the message contains a URL
then it comes up and displays properly.
Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this problem?

I did not use gdm for some time and now I'm not happy how it looks in Fedora
First of all - the list of local users is unacceptable from security
reasons. Even if it supports such "an " option - how it can be the default
Second problem I have is shutdown button (and possibly restart as well) -
when you click on shutdown button by mistake, system will shut - there is no
I also tried to find some ways how to customize gdm in Fedora 11 but I did
not find any usable guide.
Can anybody please advise me how can I have prompt asking for username only
(showing last logged user at maximum) and not displaying the list of all
Also can I somehow add confirmation or remove shutdown restart buttons from
Or can you please advise any alternative to gdm?
Thank you very much,
I am looking for a SMS server software for RHEL.
The phones we use can receive email but it does not always get to the phone
in a timely manner and sometimes I get "connected refused" when trying to
send messages via email. I've looked at smstools and Googled around but
would like the forums opinion on what they have used and experiences.
Thank you for your time,
I had to re-install Fedora 10 on a home desktop PC. In regard to this:
Is it possible to have a local cache/ "repository" of all
1) Updates (Critical, Security, Bug-fixes), and
2) Additional installed rpm's (that were installed through PackageKit), e.g.
Opera, Adobe Reader, etc.
so that I do not have to download all those again (800 MB + D/L)
This would be similar to the 'aptonCD' package in Ubuntu (

Fedora 10, Ubuntu 9.04 (i686)
the network at my university requires me to first connect to the WLAN
and then use PPPoE to actually use the intertubes. Connecting to the
WLAN itself works flawlessly (*hem*), the PPPoE though is a bit
I first tried setting this up via the DSL tab in Gnome's NetworkManager,
but that didn't work. The connection is listed (not very surprisingly)
under the wired networks, not under the wireless ones. I tried to be
sneaky and entered my wlan-adapter's MAC address in the "wired" tab,
but that only made the entry disappear from the network listing
entirely (in the menu that you see when you left-click the
I did manage to set up the connection by running pppoe-setup as root.
And although I did configure it to start at system boot, this doesn't
happen. So now I have to run ifup as root every time I want to connect
to the internet. To make things more annoying the WLAN connection
disconnects somewhat frequently (lousy administration), prompting me do
do ifdown and ifup each time that happens.
Any way to have this PPPoE connection up automatically, preferably via
NetworkManager? Any help is much appreciated.
