Is it just me??
I've noticed, on several machines (PC, laptop, netbook) that if
the machine has no connection, or thinks it has none, the gpk function
claims there are no updates; but if I doubt that and run yum update, it
may immediately get over a hundred -- or at least report a failure to
Couldn't gpk do the same??

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
I there a way to test new GIMP 2.7/2.8 in Fedora? I looked in Rawhide
repos and I still see only 2.6x versions there. Any plans to put 2.7 in
Rawhide repost for testing purposes?

Thanks to Chris Smart, Peter Danenberg and others, I have been able to
install Fedora 12 as the sole O/S on my Macbook Air (first
However the wirless networking is not enabled.
I am following the instructions in
There was no wireless device shown in the network Configuration, so I
clicked New and added a device for hardware Apple Airport.
I also tried adding wireless device on the Hardware tab (eth0), but although
it allows me to do this, after I save and then reopen the Network
Configuration, the hardware only shows a device pan0 of Type Ethernet
(which was there from the start). It does appear on the Devices tab
(it didn't originally until I added it), but has staus of inactive,
and no means to activate it.
However, even after restarting the computer, the wireless icon on the
panel says there are no network devices available.
So I tried removing the device from control by NetworkManager, and
activated it manually. But then I get:
Device eth0 does seem to be present, delaying initalization.
What do I need to do?

A quick scan reveals adjusting fstype will not be enuff, btrfs uses
different userspace tools from ext "btrfs-progs", so livecd-tools
will need a patch.

If i use this device on Windows (tested with Vista and Seven), i get much
high transfer rate.
I read about sync and async options, but if i put sync or async on fstab, it
does not alter the transfer rate.
Is this the normal upload transfer rate? I am doing something wrong?

I am trying to set up dnsmasq as a local resolver cache on my F-12
laptop, and can't find any way to pass the nameservers returned by DHCP
to dnsmasq as upstream nameservers and still have 127.0.0.1 appear as
the primary nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf.
NetworkManager creates a resolv.conf file that contains only the servers
returned by DHCP. That does not allow queries from local processes to
be routed through the local caching resolver.
Without NetworkManager, I would just put a line in dhclient.conf to
prepend "127.0.0.1" to the list of nameservers returned by DHCP.
dnsmasq would then read resolv.conf, nicely ignore that entry, and use
the other nameserver entries as upstream servers. NetworkManager always
invokes dhclient with a custom config file that is created anew for each
invocation, and gives no means to add this customization.
If I configure NetworkManager to put "127.0.0.1" as a nameserver in
resolv.conf, then _only_ that nameserver will appear, and dnsmasq has
no way to discover the upstream servers.
I cannot simply hard code the upstream servers in /etc/dnsmasq.conf
because that would ignore what DHCP returns.
I can put a script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ to modify
resolv.conf to my liking, but that script does not get invoked for lease
renewals, at which time dhclient would undo my changes.
Getting rid of NetworkManager really isn't a viable option for a laptop
that needs to connect to various WiFi networks.
I find it hard to believe nobody's run into this before, but my searches
on Google have been fruitless. Looking for suggestions before I go
complain on the NetworkManager developers list.
