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.
Package search has been bugging me for a long time now, I as an advanced user
know exactly what I want and any package is just "yum install name" away, yes I
still use yum and will continue to do so because I prefer yum over pkcon :)
also pkcon is harder spell the phone line or skype (when dealing with
yum is easier to type even you are regular cli user, and yum is easier
remember but never mind, back to topic at hand.
For new users it is too hard to install package by searching because for any
general search phrase and even for searches that are unique package names users
get too many search results, and too often the top result is not what they are
looking for. Too much information is not a good thing.
This has been bugging me for months but haven't written anything about this
because didn't see a solution until now.
After looking at Suse Studio Screencast  it become obvious really fast whan
needs to be done because they have done it in really elegant way.
When doing a search in SUSE studio package search results are sorted by
installation frequency. So packages which are most often installed are on top.
SUSE guys have great example by searching for apache package. I repeated apache
search on Fedora with yum, pkcon and with PackageKit GNOME GUI. The results are
attached in this RFE, but you can see how search isn't usable if user doesn't
know exactly that needs to be installed.
Regular users won't go installing apache, this is just one example, but I had
lots of similar situations in real life when I told some fedora users to just
type name of package and to install it, but users got too many search results
and got confused. I expect that only few packages will show and that main
package will be first.
We need some king of google logic that would sort package search results.
Am I making any sense? Has something like this already in the works? Am I just
wasting your time?

I'm trying to install FC8 on my old, creaky Thinkpad A22p (ATI Rage
Mobility Rage 3) and the video from the graphical installer is not
correct. I get about 1/3 of the orginal screen, then 1/3 of the third
1/3 of screen followed by that 1/3 again.
If I use the text installer, X will not start when running the first
time after installing.

used the archives to see if this had been answered before posting!)
I keep the "accept cookies from sites" option un-checked in my Firefox
preferences and maintain a (short) list of websites that I allow cookies
Even though I have "allow for session" set for www.youtube.com, it still
comes up with "An error occurred" when I try to play a video. If I
check "accept cookies from sites" and reload the page, it works even
though no cookie that's not already on my whitelist shows up.
Which is a pain because I have to change that setting, reload the page,
watch the video and then remember to change the setting back to not
accept cookies again.
I just found the fix.
www.youtube.com is already on my "accept for session" cookie exception
Adding youtube.com (note no www in that) to that list manually (under
Edit-Prefrences-Privacy-Exceptions) solves the problem..

I've set up a printer entry for my Brother HL-5070N network printer,
and when I print a test page it instead prints one page with "ERROR
NAME; undefined COMMAND; -12345X@PJL OPERAND STACK", followed by pages
and pages of blank paper until I turn off the printer.
There is a choice of a number of print drivers, and I've tried a few
of them, including ljet4, hl1250, and a ghostscript driver, and they
all do the same thing.
It hasn't worked since I installed FC13, but did work when I
previously had Ubuntu and an older FC installed on this computer.
How can I troubleshoot this?
I haven't made any progress on getting my Xerox 6130 printer to work with F13. It's a fully updated F13 system on a Dell Dimension Desktop. The device manager see the Xerox printer on one of the usb ports and Fedora seems to have a driver for the printer, but the Add Printer process does not seem to recognize that the printer is there.
Is there any way to determine the correct URI for the printer on the usb port? If so, I could manually configure the printer.
The device manager does not give the URI for the thing, but it does see it as a Xerox 6130N printer.
Thanks in advance
I am wondering how ESATA devices are supposed to work in F13 these days.
Does F13 support hot plugging of ESATA devices ?
Are they only recognized at boot time ?
Are they supported at all ?
