When plugged in it knows what it is,
but cannot find a driver for it.
Any advice, Google sends me to Windows sites.
I just installed fedora 12 as an update of a fedore 11 system.
This morning I saw 683 updates proposed for my system.
I clicked on "Install Updates" button and had, some seconds after this

Here is a bit of a different question I think. I have an F-11 box I'm
setting up to let people access it for some file shares using samba. In
order to control the access I created a user for each person I want to allow
access. Each user was created without their own group or an account, file in
"/home", since none of them will be allowed to do anything except access
file shares. The above users were then assigned to several groups I created.
The problem is every one of the users I created shows up as an entry in the
main login screen on the locally attached display console. Is there anyway
to only display logins for those uses that have an account they can access
while not showing the others? Those that have an account will be accessing
their account by loging in, by attaching remotely, using Xrdp which by the
way is a slick way of handling multiple users on the machine at the same
time and letting them use their desktop.

The sound on my Thinkpad T43 (model 1871-12G) sometimes works,
and sometimes does not work.
I think this has something to do with Suspend to Disk.
However, I'm not really asking about this,
but rather: Is there a simple way of testing if sound is working?
I'm running Fedora-12/KDE, and looked at System Settings=>
Look and Feel=>Notifications ,
but did not really understand how one is supposed to use this.
Is there a simple command-line test for sound?
Shouldn't there be a test somewhere in KMix
since there seem to be a billion choices there?
The only test I have found is to put in a CD and run Amarok,
but I am sure there is something simpler than that?

Hey all, I'm still new to Fedora in that I've never seen a new major
version of Firefox in this time.
Will Firefox 3.6 be pushed out as a system upgrade, or will Fedora
stick to the stable 3.5 series?
if so, any idea of eta? Would it be similiar to 3.5 series or take
longer cause it's a major upgrade?
Thanks a bunch.
When trying to do an /etc/init.d/proftpd start on my Fedora 11 box, I am
getting a return of Failed.
I can find no service which might be interfering and no log file
anywhere showing me an error.
