After the base sw install, i am getting audio capture & audio playback
errors when i try to make a test call.
however, these are just icon level msgs; i am less clear how to see the
actual failure details.
besides /var/log/messages, is there any error log for Skype use?

If KDE 4 still feels strange to you, UserBase now has a treat in store. Hans
(aka Mogger, on IRC) has created a whole set of short looping screencasts that
show you exactly how to do all the common tasks associated with Plasma -
covering desktop and panel widgets, extenders and activities. Each one lasts
only a few seconds, but because it loops you have plenty of time to see
exactly what is happening. Find them at
In case you didn't already know, there are already

I'm happily using LXDE on my F11 system, and I thought I'd remove Gnome,
using "yum remove gnome\*".
Well, it was not to be. Yum decide to remove parts of LXDE, Firefox,
Thunderbird, Java, abiword, most of the "system" admin utilities, and
about 50 other programs that I would think have nothing to do with Gnome.
Am I stupid or what? Why would Fedora's Firefox have a Gnome dependency
when I'm sure that the Mozilla version doesn't? Are these "real"
dependencies or packaging artifacts?
I don't think I like this disto as much as I once did.
I'm contemplating a laptop purchase and my current "top three"
candidates are a MBP 17, Lenovo W500 (WUXGA/ATI Mobility FireGL V5700
(512MB)), and a Dell XPS 16 (1080p/ATI Mobility RADEON HD 4670 (1G)). I
get the impression -- were I to go with the Lenovo or Dell -- that I'm
pretty much stuck with the 2D radeon drivers, which seems a shame (I
confess I like Compiz).
Can anyone comment on their experiences with these laptops?
o How well does video work?
o Fan noise?
My only two data points are the T61p I tried (shortly after Hardy Heron
released; back then, they were using an NVIDIA card) and my wife's MBP.
Hardy Heron wanted to run the T61p's (loud) fan constantly and
sleep/resume, when it worked, took "forever" (over a minute to
re-establish wireless connectivity). I found it unusable next to my
wife's MBP which is generally quiet, resumes instantly, and rarely gets
rebooted (despite both of us being constantly logged onto it).
I'm hoping to hear that Linux has come a long way since my last attempt
and would work well with either the Lenovo or the Dell. But, if ATI is
still to be avoided, does anyone have have any experience with "The
Beast" (Lenovo W700), which ships with an NVIDIA card? Seems too big,
but I'll bet the screen is much nicer than the almost-too-dim W500's.
Hey i found that two files in /etc/yum.repos.d which are adobe-linux-i386.repo and yum-iisc-f11.repo.
Also try looking in the directory
Do you have the following two files there?
What are their contents?
As the other responders said, you haven't shown us the real error yet.

Over the last 3 months, I noticed that I have posted and not gotten any
responses. Fair enough, maybe the posts aren't worth it.
But I just did a check of the archives and I don't see any of my posts.
Don't know if I am incorrectly posting or, in worse case, blacklisted.
So, I am sending out a test with the hopes that someone at least tells
me that it was seen.
I posted this on 27jul09 and didn't hear anything, so I dug in a bit
deeper with my email provider and think I have it sorted out. So, I am
cut-and-pasting (with the addition of this paragraph) and trying again.
If no answer, then at least I have something to go back to the
fedora-lists and/or my email provider to go "huh?"
Thanks in advance,

I asked nearly the same question recently on this list. I was suggested
to use mogrify. It's a part of image-magick project
(www.imagemagick.org). Works excellent! It is in fedora' repos.

I had a similar problem with my HP S3707c desktop (GeForce 9100M graphics).
Ended up booting into text mode with kernel parameter nouveau.modeset=0,
logged in as root (no password), ran Xorg -configure, edited the resulting file
to use the vesa driver and copied it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, then ran startx.
