Not a lot of visual differences although I like the new wallpaper, but
I liked the 16 wallpaper too.
One BIG nit for me was with CD/DVD burning. It would calculate the
checksum, burn, check the disc, but then it would give an error saying
it couldn't eject the disc, but the button worked and good 'ole eject
/dev/sr0 worked as well. This has been a problem since F15 but it
seems to have finally been fixed.
Thanks for a great release!
This is my first attempt at installing Hylafax. I have managed to install
6.0.6 from the tarball onto a brand new F17 system.
I am wanting to use this as an automated fax receive and forward system so I
haven't looked at the sending side of the system yet.
I'm also new to systemd having being used to old init based systems. So far I
have two problems.
1) Through googling I have managed to get faxgetty running and can receive
faxes if I first start the system by issuing the command
systemctl start faxgetty-ttyS0.service
However, if I reboot the services doesn't start automatically. The systemd
config file I've copied from the net and changed appropriately is:
[root@stan2 ~]# cat /etc/systemd/system/faxgetty-ttyS0.service
Description=FaxGetty Start Modem ttyS0
[root@stan2 ~]# ll /etc/systemd/system/default.target
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 37 Oct 29
16:07 /etc/systemd/system/default.target -> /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target
Can anyone suggest what I need to do to get it to run on startup please.
2) received TIF image is squashed vertically
The resulting TIF file looks correct except that it is squashed vertically, to
about half the height it should be. I have googled this and have found a
number of results where it says the problem is down to flow control and give
the resulting log entries. However I do not have any errors in the log file.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?
IN an effort to get some soap experience, i pulled Soap::lite and have been
playing around with it
calling into NOAA.
Sadly, its not working well and I dont see updates since 2001.
Not working is defined as variable loading errors.
I set $product, but the outbound request isnt including it! :(
This appears to be an abandoned project.
Any of you using this perl/soap code?
Code listing below for the curious, tia, ...
# Set up the input required by the NDFD web service
$latitude = 36.981;
$longitude = -121.874;
*$product = "time-series";*
$startTime = "";
$endTime = "";
$Unit = "e";
# Use SOAP::Lite to retrieve the NDFD XML data
# We use the web service's WSDL as input into creating the SOAP message
# We call the exposed function NDFDgen using SOAP::Data to ensure
# gets the types correct
# The XML returned by the web service is saved as a string in $NDFD_XML
$NDFD_XML = SOAP::Lite
->NDFDgen(SOAP::Data->name("latitude" => $latitude),
SOAP::Data->name("longitude" => $longitude),
* SOAP::Data->name("product" => $product),*
SOAP::Data->name("startTime" => $startTime),
SOAP::Data->name("endTime" => $endTime),
SOAP::Data->name("Unit" => $Unit),

I'm running Fedora-17/KDE on my laptop,
and am trying to run wireshark.
I've yum-installed wireshark, wireshark-gnome and wireshark-devel.
When I run wireshark (as root) it gets as far as
"Registering Python dissectors"
and then crashes:
[root@rose tim]# wireshark
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Any advice or suggestions gratefully received.

Just got a Kindle Fire HD (brand new in my country): when I connect to
my Fedora 17 nothing happens:
I get from lsusb:
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 1949:0007 Lab126
but I don't see any USB drive connected.
Linux Fedora F17 (Beefy Miracle) on Acer 5720
I quite stupidly unplugged my computer today when my foot got tangled in
the power strip. On reboot, I was notified
Device: /dev/sda [SAT], 8 Offline uncorrectable sectors
Smartctl tells me the problem is at LBA 2014551336 (this is a 2TB disk).
Following the info here
I'm not able to determine what file might be sitting on this block.
tune2fs -l /dev/sda5 |grep Block
Block count: 472552448
Block size: 4096
Blocks per group: 32768
[root@sds-desk-2 ~]# debugfs
debugfs 1.42.3 (14-May-2012)
debugfs: open /dev/sda5
debugfs: icheck 235992741
Block Inode number
debugfs: ncheck 8
This suggests that the problem is not in a currently extant file.
I'm now trying the suggestion of writing from /dev/zero to a file in
/home while in single users mode. Given that I have 1.5TB to fill,
this could take a while.
Here's the question: If I just reformat and restore /home from a
recent backup, will the disk automatically deal with the sectors
$ rpm -q bc
I was searching the web for bc funs to calculate cube roots
and other arbitrary roots. Almost all of the func I found
assume that bc has the built-in funcs l and e which take
a numeric arg.
Yet my bc has no such funcs.
Is the version above broken?
I have a Gateway T-6321 that I recently had to re-install Fedora Linux
v17 on. I've put just about everything that was on there from before
(Totem, Clementine...Thunderbird etc.) but when I try to play movies in
Totem or music in Clementine I get errors such as:
Clementine: - "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plugin."
Totem: - "A program requires additional plugins to decode this file:
The following plugins are required:
MPEG-4 AAC decoder
Do you want to search for these now?
My problem is when it searches for these it tells me they're already
installed? What is the solution for this kind of error? is there a file
I need? or a missing piece of this puzzle?
Running updates-testing I noticed once my usb modem didn't work -
caused by usb_mdoeswitch segfaulting 3 times in a row:
Oct 29 18:37:27 localhost kernel: [ 23.740625]

ABRT didn't detect those crashes. Is this due to a technical issue?
Is there any way to get the name of the function where usb_modeswitch
crashed in the above cases, so I can at least file a bug-report?
I'm looking to create a fax gateway, either fax to email or fax to program.
I've googled this but everything I've looked at it at least 5 years old. I was
wondering what people are using these days and what's good now.
