I can't find a daemon script for clamav. I can start clamd directly,
that seems to work.
Is there a chkconfig or systemd script? Or do you need to stick
something in rc.local?

Does anyone know if using a Fedora 16 beta netinstall disc will get me
to Fedora 16 release version directly? I've got one from previously
upgrading a system to F16 beta and want to know if I can save burning
a new disc to upgrade another machine.
Gnome3 starts a lot of daemon processes that I'd like to get rid of.
Currently, I just chmod 644 the executables in /usr/libexec. Could
someone please tell me the "correct" way to configure Gnome so it
doesn't run daemons that I don't want/need.
My luck was that Gnome3.2 could not fully work on my system so I was
going to be put in fallback mode (I think that is what it is called) By
the way can anyone point me to what lack of resources causes that to
At first I was discouraged until I realized what I had was what many
people asked for, a Gnome3 with the familiar features of Gnome2. I have
only an Applications menu and a Places menu at the top. Clicking on
Applications gives you the familiar hierarchical list of applications.
"Magic Workspaces" are not present. The Workspaces sit where they used
to be in right corner of the bottom panel. I can fill the upper panel
with my favorite application icons that will cause them to run (like
Firefox, evolution, etc).
gnome-tweak and fedorautils can allow me to configure the Gnome destom
in various ways. fedorautils has an option to speed up boot but you are
warned services you want may disappear.
I find the whole thing familiar and friendly and it answers the wishes
of those who miss the Gnome2 feel.

Since fc5, I have always downloaded an iso of the full image of Fedora
w/ Gnome. Given the emails on f15 and now f16, I am interested in
looking at alternatives to Gnome. After much clicking through the Fedora
site, it appears to me that only f16 w/ Gnome has a direct download DVD,
all the others are spins which only offer Live or BitTorrent versions
(this may be incorrect as I have no idea whether BitTorrent provides a
full image DVD or just a Live).
The reason I ask is that I have never had any luck with Live images and
prefer to install a new release of Fedora as a fresh install and not an
update ... and really like having media that has the release on it and
not a media that I still need to download more stuff to get the release.
Hopefully someone will politely tell me this is a dumb question and I
just missed something obvious; otherwise, I will assume that I have to
do kde, xfce, lxde, etc via Live.
Thanks in advance,
Unable to figure out how to do what I wanted in gimp,
I went looking for pnmcrop.
I had gimp out because I hadn't been able to find pnmtops.
Cropping stumped me, so I went looking again.
Eventually I figured out that I didn't have the right package installed.
yum provides told me netpbm.
yum install netpbm ran to completion without complaint,
but I still don't have any netpbm tools.
I even did a find from / as root.
What is going on and how do I fix it?
I'm running FC14.

what little i know of PPC virtualization suggests that
qemu-system-ppc is still a work in progress, at least on ubuntu which
is what's running on one of my systems. so i'd like to switch back to
fedora for what will be an extended adventure in virtualization.
as a specific example, i have a lite5200 (MPC5200) board and i can
easily configure a kernel:
$ make ARCH=powerpc lite5200b_defconfig
build that kernel, download that using the board's u-boot and boot
that kernel, at least to the point where it falls over from lack of a
root filesystem. (for now, i just want to verify that the kernel
boots -- i'll worry about the root filesystem later.)
for fun, i'd like to run that kernel under qemu as well, but i
already know there will be problems. on the one hand, people suggest
that MCP5200 qemu support is pretty good:
on the other hand, i also had to download a debian package for
openbios-ppc just to attempt to run that kernel using qemu-system-ppc
under ubuntu, and that still didn't work (missing firmware).
so, if i install fedora 16 and i have my u-boot ready kernel image,
what are the chances of using qemu-system-ppc to simply start that
kernel? and where's the current state of kvm docs for fedora 16?
