Is there another list that is dedicated to fedora users on powerpc?
I had asked a question here about booting F12 on powerbook G4,
and no one answered. I assume there are no fedora/powerpc
users on this list.
I'm having problem with one device, a Nikon D90 camera, that won't
automount. At some point in the past, I had set something that would
cause it to be detected, but the only option offered was to download
pictures with Digikam. (At some time in the past, the device notifier
would offer options including opening the device in Dolphin which is
what I'd prefer.) For some reason, this function didn't work properly
because Digikam would open and stall on the process of detecting my
images, and never would open. I have a very large image archive and this
process could take a couple of minutes in the past, but it would
eventually open. This camera will mount under Windows; however, in
Windows, the icon never appears that allows you to eject it gracefully
once you're ready to dismount it. When I attach the camera to the
Windows box, it automatically opens an explorer window and shows me the
folder structure, but, the eject button never appears.
What I've done:
I've gone into the device notifier widget settings and tried finding
there, a way to disable the mount with Digikam option, but could find
nothing there that affected the behavior
I've removed the device notifier widget and re-installed it - no difference
I found the auto-mount files "device-automounter-kcmrc" and
"kded-device-automounterrc" and renamed them and restarted KDE - no
I removed Digikam (I really don't want to use this app anyway, as I find
it cumbersome) - now, the device notifier doesn't ever show the camera
I re-formatted the memory card in the camera
Lots of google searches on this issue, but haven't found anything else
Tried my other camera, a Fuji 9000, and several pen drives - these all
automount successfully and offer various options for how to mount the
devices with various applications
The strange behavior under Windows (it automatically opens a folder with
the camera memory card's root folder displayed, BUT, never produces the
eject icon) makes me suspect this is some issue with the camera, but,
what could it be?

I use fedora 12 on a dell inspiron 1545 laptop.
i have a external usb hd and i can't make it connect like a usb 2.0 device.
this device is ntfs format
I check if the device is using ehci (dmesg after i plug the device)
[root@localhost ~]# dmesg | grep USB
usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
I check if this device is connected on a usb 2.0
[root@localhost ~]# lsusb
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 015: ID 0471:2021 Philips
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
I mount the device with this options:
/dev/sdc1 on /media/hd_backup type fuseblk
but when i use cp, mv or rsync, the max speed i get is max 6MB/s (a lot
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?

For some reasons I want to know what are "Minimum Required RPM
Packages" for installing fedora on a PC.
At installation time, we can remove all optional packages and after
removing them Fedora will install with nearly 200 packages! But, many
of these packages are not necessary, for example OpenSSH, WireLess,
Then, when I tried to remove those unwanted packages after
installation, many many dependencies appeared.
So, I have two questions:
1- What are Minimum Required RPM Packages for installing Fedora? (just
booting up the system with kernel and then, a simple command line
2- How can I reach this minimal system? (As I described above those
dependencies make it impossible to remove unwanted packages after
installation and also there is no option to remove unwanted packages
I have a duel boot laptop. if i boot it into f12, using kde, and pull
out the power cord, i get a popup message telling me i've done so and
the battery monitor icon changes. If i boot into f13, also kde, i get
no indication at all when i pull out the cable. The home directory is
shared between the two boots, so the configuration is the same.
I think this was working for f13 too until the last time i applied
updates, though it may just be that i didn't test it.
Has anyone else seen this? Can anyone suggest how I can debug it?

how what appears in 'To:' depends on how ones email address book is set up.
the 'To:' in this reply will appear to me as 'example mail list' because
my address book is configured to *display* 'example mail list' for email
address of 'geleem(a)bellsouth.net'.
for it to appear this way in a recipient's email, they would have to have
a similar entry in their address book.
or so it works with thunderbird.

to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it.
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look* at it.
