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??

Hi LTSP/Fedora Community.
(1st let me say "Sorry for the X-Posting to multiple Lists")
I would like to take this opportunity to say that Myself and a friend
have stepped up and I will now take over trying to keep LTSP in Fedora
Current with the upstream.
@ the end of last week I was given access to the LTSP Package on Fedora.
I have the src of ltsp-5.2.4 and am in the process of getting this into
and .rpm for Fedora 13 & Fedora 14 (x86 & x86_64).
This is going to take a little bit of time to get this release into an
.rpm, but we hope to have this done within the next week or so...
I first need to get my head around how the current version is packaged
and then we should be able to get the new version packaged the same way
to try and make this all as seamless as possible.

I need to vent... I'm getting frustrated with Linux. Well, not Linux
per se, and not Fedora, but the whole experience part of things.
I desperately need to do something about the audio system in my car.
Its got a head unit that doesn't have an aux in, nor does it support
mp3s, etc. It needs to be replaced ASAP.
I also need navigation, desperately.
Its been that way for a while. I considered doing a car PC. I didn't
like all the engineering required to do that, so I nixed it. I
considered embedding a HP Tablet in the dash. I took a close look at
them and nixed it due to display issues, heat, etc.
So I've been waiting and waiting. I considered buying a dedicated head
unit with nav but the screens are too small and they seem to go out of
date faster than bread on the counter.
Along comes the iPad. And it seems to do everything I want. Plays
MP3s. Does nav. Bright screen. Affordable. And if you check youtube,
lots of people have embedded them in cars.
But being an OS guy, I want a machine running Linux, not iOS or whatever
its called. Where is it ? I keep reading stories about dozens of
tablet devices running Linux/Android/Meego on Slashdot, but where are
While I have your attention, I also own a Nokia N900 phone. Right now
its running Maemo, which works, but is hardly what one would call
elegant. Actually, there are some things that don't work, but that is
another story. Nokia is saying they will be shipping Meego in October.
I have my fingers crossed.
Another thing I am waiting on is KDE 4.6. I am pretty disappointed by
KDE 4.5 I know it was a bug fix release, but I expected more.
At this point I REALLY have to applaud Apple. They really seem to have
their act together.
The various vendors in the Linux camp really need to get their butts in
gear and start delivering. Hardware companies need to get their
tablets OUT into the market. Nokia et al need to get Meego OUT and get
some nice apps written for it. (Have you looked at the iPad and iPhone
app store lately ?) And the KDE camp needs to finish delivering on
their vision for what KDE 4 is supposed to be.
I wait, growing more impatient day by day.
I thought to make my Fedora system boot faster. For that I thought to
disable unnecessary kernel modules and services. So I want to know in
detail what each and every kernel module and service do so that I can
disable which are no needed. Can anyone here provide me with a
detailed documentation on the kernel modules and services?
Anyone got any suggestions for this.
I have a linksys sr2024 Gb switch
Several things are plugged into this - all using cat 5e or cat 6 cables.
Some things are connecting with full Gb speed but the main firewall wont.
The machine has 3 intel nic's -
lspci | egrep -i ethernet
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82573L Gigabit Ethernet
Controller (rev 01)
05:04.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet
Controller (rev 05)
05:05.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet
Controller (rev 05)
The 82573 is on board and not used - the other 2 nic's are used - one
for internal subnet and one for external.
The internet side is connected to a cisco 800 router (which I believe
is 10/100 only .. tho I cudnt swear for sure)
The inside is connected to the SR2024 Gb switch.
Both nic's come up in 100 Mb/s - I rebooted the switch, and I plugged
and unplugged the cables, I tried ethtool -r ethx a few times to no avail.
Other machines on same switch are happily running at full gigabit speeds.
Nothing in logs suggests a problem
Is there a problem with multi nics of same brand where they need to run
at diff speeds ? Or is this a quirk with some hardware somewhere ? Or ???
Appreciate any suggesions ... its getting tiring forcing renogiation!
yum localinstall worked like a champ. I was looking in the wrong
place trying to find the answer in rpm.
Yes, I am posting from my XP platform as I am trying to bring the new
laptop up to speed on Fedora and have not configured Thunderbird on it yet.
Thanks for the help!
I'm looking for a way to generate a PDF report based on a set of data in a
database and a set of pre-generated graphs via some sort of procedural
method based on a template.
We tried to do this via open office & it's templating features but this
process requires us to first generate an odt file based on xml and then open
the open office odt file and export to a PDF, unfortunately our first stab
generated a 150GB odt file. This is of course an unacceptable method. So,
I'm looking for a way to generate PDF's straight away as described above.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
Months ago when I started using Fedora 13 from Centos 5.3
one of the reasons was that things just worked. Things
like suspend when the laptop lid is closed. Lately starting
perhaps six weeks ago the probability of a successful suspension
and subsequent wake up seems to be about 50%-60%.
My question is what can I check to gather evidence about what's
going on and how to fix it?

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?

I was browsing for info on 12 core cpu's and found
that AMD released them or announced back in March.
The price is steep of course.
What I would like to know is the degree of granularity
of the SMP implementation in Linux.
Does anyone have an inside track on that?
Or point to some internal documentation?
