The firmware in this wifi card prevents my Dell 9400 Inspiron from
installing the nvidia drivers. There have been some bug reports but I
have not seen any fixes produced. Can anyone tell me where they are as
it relates to this problem. I am still not able to install the nvidia
drivers on my laptop. I am using Fedora 16/64-bit.

Googling around I found with a little work I can run Fedora on that Tablet.
Only wish it didn't came with Windows Pro, I could save a few bucks if it
was Windows Home Basic.
Anyone on the list tried this? Do you think this machine with F15 or F16
would be a useable tablet? Andoid is not yet open enough for my taste ;-)

I am enthusiastic about upgrading from my little Gateway Netbook to one
of the new Ultrabooks - the ZenBook looks the most promising but I would
like to hear of experiences with Fedora and any of the Ultrabooks.

I have two F-15 computers with a program that should be toggling
RTS and DTR on the serial port. One works as expected this one I
am on now does not.
I haven't had much to do with the serial port and don't know how
to troubleshoot it.
Can someone offer a suggestion where to begin?

That much I know, as I googled I already also know that device drivers can be found. But my question was if it was useable or if it'll feel cumbersome. I wish to hear (read) from someone who actually tried this.

I heard that iced tea binaries have to use the openjdk name on binaries
(such as the Fedora packages) because of some agreement with Sun. Sun was
to provide help running the TCK and integrading iced tea patches into
openjdk, in return icedtea downstream would use the openjdk name. Is this
correct? I could not find a reference on the subject.
Or maybe it was a clause on the "special tck license grant" for open source
projects based on openjdk.
I guess there are people on the list who can tell what happened. :-)

trying to format a partition as ext4
getting following error
[root@f14 ~]# mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdc7
mke2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
mkfs.ext4: No such device or address while trying to determine filesystem size
I did this same command earlier today and it worked.
Since then, I made some kind of error copying to that partition,
after it was mounted to /mnt/sdc7.
So I was trying to reformat.
Also, now if I try to mount it I can't even see what is in it:
[root@f14 ~]# mount /dev/sdc7 /mnt/sdc7
mount: /dev/sdc7 is not a valid block device
This must be newbie stuff, but I am lost.
mount shows sdc9 for example
/dev/sdc9 on /grubp type ext3 (rw)
but fdisk -l shows only sda, sdb,
nothing for sdc
df -kh does show sdc9, nothing for sdc7
root@f14 ~]# df -kh
