I was formerly able to edit the file
to discard all the individual dovecot deliver messages
about storing each message in each mailbox.
Now, even though my pattern clearly matches the
message, my changes no longer take effect.
Is logwatch doing some sort of "compilation" process
or something on these scripts which I need to do
to make my changes take effect?
If I set a ramfs file system like this on a Fedora 12 system (but I think it
is the same in general):
mount -t ramfs -o size=10m ramfs /ramfs
I can see it via mount but not via df command.
[root@tekkaman ~]# mount
ramfs on /ramfs type ramfs (rw,size=10m)
As ramfs is dynamic and can go beyond initial set, how can I see how much
memory is using?
For example in my case where I set 10MB, I can do
[root@tekkaman ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/ramfs/testfile bs=1024k count=30
30+0 records in
30+0 records out
31457280 bytes (31 MB) copied, 0.0393341 s, 800 MB/s
But mount gives the same result
ramfs on /ramfs type ramfs (rw,size=10m)
Is there any other virtual file to show up its usage?

I just bought a new 1T SATA drive to add to the mix, and here's what I'd like
to do (but I don't understand how to do it).
I want to add the new drive as a third disk so that the system will continue
to boot off of sda. I'm current;y running F10 in 32 bit mode.
After I add the new drive, it will be seen as sdc, and I will want to install
F12 in 64 bit mode on sdc.
Q0: Can I tell the install DVD to install on sdc and to leave sda alone?
Q1: Is it possible to have multiple bootable devices? And how do I do this?
Next, after I'm thrilled to death that sdc is how I want it to be, I want to
make a cutover so that sdc will then become the primary boot device. My
understanding is that the four SATA plugs I have on my motherboard are defined
so that one (currently sda) is considered to be the primary device.
Q2: When I do a cutover, do I have to switch the cables on the new sdc and
what is now sda? Will the new drive end up being referred as sda and the now
current sda become sdc?
Q3: Is there a grub command I need to run to make the new drive become the
bootable device? Or do I have to then reload from scratch to make it all work?

On doing Shutdown as Normal User, there is a quick scroll of messages
(similar to those at login) and it then hangs with a blinking cursor
at the top left of the screen. I noticed this after a recent update
that included a new kernel.
Trying to shutdown through a virtual terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F2) after
logging in as root also did not help. There was a blinking cursor on

I am using a *fc12.x86_64 machine. I just now upgraded several packages
with yum (yumex) and noticed several i686 packages being upgraded as
well. Is this normal? Are some packages I have using i686 when I
should have only *.86_64 on my machine? Should I remove ALL i686
packages or just leave them alone? I am not overly concerned; just

Is there an official/unofficial F12 repository which has
Networkmanager 0.8 installed? My uni wireless is Windows based and
doesn't work with 0.7. Apparently this is working in 0.8.
I'd rather not have to build it myself, if there's a repo I can add.
