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?
My HP DC7800 with encrypted Intel SSD can boot:
but not the 2.6.34 kernels like:
The screen goes blank very early in the boot process, before the disk
passphrase is requested. It happens so fast that I can't read the
limited text that appears on the screen, and the disks are not mounted
Anyway... maybe this rings a bell for someone?
Removing and re-installing the 2.6.34 kernel doesn't fix anything.
Is there a site somewhere having a comprehensive archive of all Fedora
release (RPMs, iso, etc.) that can be rsynced ?
archive.fedoraproject.org seems to have everything but I'm not sure it
can be rsynced ...

I was wondering how one does it: I have been looking at the Preferences
-> Desktop but I can not find a way to have it take nothing as the
background. Previously, in F10,11,12, I recall that there was a button
somewhere which said no background. I can not find it here.
Anyone have any clues about what could "use up" some resource
used to create a forwarded X connection (ssh -X)?
I've got these testbeds that run 24/7 on random collections
of both real and virtual machines, and they are all started
from inside a VNC session using ssh -X to get to the target
test machine. The theory is that any test which needs a X
server will be happy with the VNC server.
After running for a few months, tests sometime start failing
because they can't open the X server. Reboot the host (which
is running fedora 13) and recreate the VNC server and things
Seems like something is getting "used up" that the reboot
cleans up, but I haven't been able to find out what
that something is :-).
I have a fedora 13 box on which I have a remote mounted nfs share over a
fairly slow (10Mb/s) link. I'm then transferring data onto this share
from a different machine using scp.
The problem is that after scp reports that it's 100% complete the
program will hang for ~20 mins before it will move on to another file.
At this point it can't be killed.
It looks like the nfs daemon is caching write data (around 2GB of it)
which lets scp think its finished when actually there's loads of data
sitting in a write buffer. The hanging is presumably the time it takes
to flush the buffer (there is a process called nfsiod which is active
during this time and df shows data is still being written).
Does anyone know how to either make this buffer smaller, or get rid of
it all together so the scp can accruately report on its progress?
Movie Player using GStreamer 0.10.20 and GNOME
Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disc.
I don't want to know about them, I just want to get them and play my DVD.
Thank you, AnneMarie Robinson
If this comes across as a newbie question...I apologize. i simply don't
know the answer. I recently installed Fedora 13. I'm used to using "wget"
and "GET". When trying to run a few of my old scripts I found that "wget"
and "GET" were not installed. I was able to install "wget" by using "yum
install wget". This does not work with "GET". Can someone point me to the
correct package that may include "GET"? Thanks in advance for any
I have an HP computer with an AMD Athlon X2 dual core
processor. It has Fedora 13 on it. It continually reports the
time incorrectly and gets further off(fast) as time goes by.
I doubt this is a Fedora problem, but am not sure how to
fix this and thought I'd ask here. I know how to reset the
time, but want to know what can be done so there wouldn't
be any need to do that. Thanks in advance.
