I have existing mdraid arrays. They get mounted as /dev/md0 through /dev/md2.
After some sweat and tears, I reduces the size of one of them, and used the
free disk space to assemble a new array (all arrays we're talking here are
raid 1, with two disks). I formatted the new md device as ext3.
I added "UUID=<uuid> /mountpoint" to /etc/fstab.
At bootup, the new array gets automounted on /dev/md127 for some reason.
Everything's fine, I see no issues except for the unexpected device minor
Anyone care to enlighten me, how mdraid minor numbers get handed out, and
why the one I manually created comes up as a high number, even though the
next free minor device is, obviously, /dev/md3.
This maybe is a little off-topic on this list hence the 'OT' in the
subject line. Sorry for that.
I need to gather hardware information from computers on a local
network and store it on a server. The server runs F16, clients run
different ubuntu versions (11.04 mostly). The information should
include such things as monitor serial numbers and other details for
definite identification. The main purpose is inventarisation of all
the hardware we have in the office. There's about 40 workstations.
Google suggests use combination of OCS Inventory NG with GLPI . The
other idea is to write a set of bash scripts and put them on cron on
workstations (the information should be updated weekly) and main
script on the server would store information in the database. However
if there's ready solution I would be happy to use it.

When I had F12 installed on my system I was able to configure a printer
attached to my dad's windows system without issues.
I'm now running F14 and I'm having problems. When I bring up
system-config-printer and add a printer via samba I provide just the
workgroup name and select browse. After a bit a dialog pops up showing the
share name and then another dialog pops up that says that I need to login
to the windows host. Since no such security requirement has been
configured on the windows side I am unable to configure a printer. The
same thing happens when I use my mother's F13 system to configure a samba
printer. I can run
smbclient -L 192.168.1.110
which prompts for a password but hitting return allows it to go ahead and
display the available services
[root@peglaptopw mplayer]# smbclient -L 192.168.1.110
Enter root's password:
Domain=[TALOFA01] OS=[Windows 7 Ultimate 7601 Service Pack 1]
Server=[Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1]

However, if instead of providing just
in the SMB printer config dialog I enter
where 192.168.1.110 is the IP address of TALOFA01 then it finds the list of
available printers and I can go ahead and configure them.
This workaround does not work on F13. I'm still prompted for username and
password for system 192.168.1.110.
It seems wrong to me that I need to provide the actual IP address to make
it work. If I provide TALOFA01 instead of the IP address I get prompted
again for username and password.
So what do I need to configure on F14 to make printer configuration via
samba work right?
On another note there is one thing I find really annoying regarding adding
a printer, and that's the number of times I'm asked for the root password.
I'm asked the root password first when I select add printer. After
providing it (correctly) I am asked it again to get privileges to access
network printers. I am asked the root password a third time when I go to
apply the printer configuration. After I enter the password I am again
prompted for the root password to get additional privileges. So in total I
was asked for the root password 4 times - this seems excessive.
Recently I upgraded my laptop to F16 using preupgrade. This morning, at
a convention, I did a system update that included (I thought) a new
kernel. The next time I booted, the system hung, with no output. I had
to power-cycle to try again, this time getting error messages: it
couldn't find libcrypt.so.1 and there were a number of failures of
systemd-remount-api-vfs. I power-cycled again, and hit the space bar to
enter the GRUB menu. There was one F16 kernel, the upgrade, and the
latest F14 kernel, which worked.
After several experiments, I found that libcrypt.so.1 is provided by
glibc-devel, so I told yum to install it, which brought along some other
things I'd thought I'd had. Alas, it didn't fix the boot failure.
Although this isn't my main box, I'd like to keep it working as well as
I can, and would prefer to be using an F16 kernel if I'm running F16, as
I appear to be.
Also, as a side note, I'd tried using the fedorautils and made the
mistake of adding the color terminal, finding that I don't like it. How
do I reverse this?
After battling for a couple of years with my cheap Dell 1320c printer
I have decided to throw in the towel as I can't get a 64bit Linux driver
Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced network colour laser printer
that works well with Fedora 16 x64? Let me know what you have if it

Based on this bug report, is there a fix for this problem. I am unable
to install my nvidia drivers because of this bug. I don't understand it
at all. Every time I installed the drivers and reboot this is the
results. I don't know why these two programs are in conflict but it
seems they are. Will somebody take a look at this problem.
I am running Fedora 16/64-bit on Dell 9400 Inspiron with a Quadro

I have a question. Can a kvm virtual machine, a linux or windows guest,
generated of fedora, be transfered to a rhel machine and started? or vice
Please note, I am not talking of live migration. Just transferring files
generated on one OS & running on the another? And what if hardware of the
machines is different?
With best regards.
I am trying to run gdb on a program that is crashing and I am getting
Missing separate debuginfos, use debug-install glibc-2.13.2.x86_64
Googling is not giving me anything that I either understand or trust.
Querying yum with -list isn't giving me any insight.
Is this message asking me to add something to the compile line or
something to gdb? And, in either case, what is it asking for.
I'm hoping someone on this list has run into this debugging C++ and can
clue me into where I need to look.
Thanks in advance,
This happened in F15 and I thought I was just ignorant.
Now that it has happened again in F16 I realize it is a software
When Gnome is configured for a user and then the user tries to use Xfce
they find that the Xfce is corrupted in various ways. Namely:
1. when Firefox is run the top menu choices can not be used. You click
on Edit for example and you see the Edit menu, When you move the cursor
down the menu and the menu disappears.
2. Gnome display image bleeds into Xfce.
3. Evolution after awhile has the same problem as Firefox.
4. Running the Software Update program causes the update window to be so
large that you can't see the options like "Install" at the bottom of the
5. You can't set up multiple workspaces.
etc., etc and so forth.
In F15 the corruptions were slightly different. Foe example the menu you
got when you clicked on the Desktop was the Gnome menu not the Xfce
Other strange things happened like you get a view of the home directory
immediately when you log in to Xfce,
It would be interesting to hear whether others have seen similar
