I need help. I have just installed Fedora 17 from the DVD. I used text
mode installation and later converted to GUI mode using
yum groupinstall "X Window System" Desktop
and configuring systemd.
Please refer to the image below. The GUI cannot display English
characters. All I get are square boxes.
Thank you very much.

My system already had one serial port, ttyS0 which is working.
I've installed a Dynamode 2-port serial card and the kernel sees the two
ports. This provides two ports is:
PCI Spec Revision 2 compliant
Compatible with 16C550 UART
and says that it supports Linux.
However, I can't use them. I've tried using both minicom and faxxaddmodem (I'm
setting up a Hylafax modem bank).
Can anyone suggest what I need to do please.

I was installing fresh copy of fedora 17. I used /dev/sda, where the windows 7 exists, as bootloader drive. At the end of the installation of packages, error is coming "There was an error installing the bootloader. The system may not be bootable"
i discovered that i can use fedora 17 on my old laptop IBM T42.
i works great but my wireless adapter doesn't work.
i found several websites (e.g.:
http://www.ces.clemson.edu/linux/fc2-ipw2200.shtml) where some steps are
written how to make it works...however in my case, i have some errors
with make ieee80211-1.2.18.
here is the error:
/root/ieee80211-1.2.18/ieee80211_module.c:148.5: error: 'struct
net_device" has no member named 'hard_start_xmit'
is there someone who already had such issue or did this step ?
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),

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.
