I updated from Fedora 12 to Fedora 14 over the weekend, and now I can't
change my pointer theme. I'm stuck using dmz-aa.
The pointer preferences still show my custom pointer choice, it's just
not being used. Well, mostly. Within Firefox and Thunderbird windows, my
custom pointer is showing up. But window borders, the desktop and most apps
only show the dmz-aa pointer.
I can't find a ref. to dmx under ~/.gconf (but I can find my custom
pointer selection: /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_theme I think).
Any ideas where to look? I've seen mention of this elsewhere, but only
WRT compiz (I use openbox), and it involved changing the system default,
which I don't want to have to do.

My desktop machine started having random crashes last summer when
I installed Fedora 13 (x86_64) on it. Now I upgraded to Fedora
14, and this has only got worse: before, uptimes could be
anything between 3 minutes and a month, now it's a few hours
I never found anything interesting in the logs.
When running without X, during a crash I saw a message on the
console mentioning mcelog, so I installed and used it as a
daemon, and also via
described here: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/cpu/mce/README
But it didn't report anything.
I checked temperatures with sensors: nothing. Ran memtest86+ for
hours: the same.
Is there something else that I should check?
Hello everyone. After I installed the updates last night, I can not open

With the default k3b that now uses growisofs to burn a dvd, it fails at
49% every time.
Downloaded the k3b-2.0.2-2.fc14.src.rpm, disabled the patch51 which
changes wodim to growisofs, recompiled and now I can burn a DVD iso
