Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
I've been using a floppy boot disk as reserve if my HD boot fails, But
it appears floppy support as now been removed. Why? Then how can I
create an emergency media that is flexible enough to be updated as required?

Howdy All -
I have Gigabyte EP43-UD3L motherboard with a single PCI Express 2.0 x16
slot. It currently has a decent NVidia card - a GeForce 7300 GT. I've
got two monitors attached, one via the VGA port and one via the digital
video port. It works well, I get accelerated X and wobbly windows and
all that silliness. Guilty pleasure: I like eye candy.
I'd *really* love to do triple head - the monitor in front of me for my
main work, and the two side screens for supporting stuff.
I am wondering, since my motherboard has a four PCI Express x1 ports and
I see PCI Express x1 video cards for decent prices, if I can either
replace my single card with two identical two-port X1 cards, or just add
a single X1 video card to what I already have and get triple head.
Has anyone done this?

I was asked to assist connecting a Fedora linux system for video
conferencing with oovoo.com. It is apparent that they support Mac and
Does anyone have any experience in using the Mac installation for oovoo
for Fedora? Can anyone make recommendations for connections that allow
video conferencing with Fedora.
We needed pdfedit for Fedora 16 and is not avaiable anymore.
It is present in Fedora <= 15
It was easy to rebuild pdfedit-0.4.5-4.fc16.x86_64.rpm and it works
So the question: why was it discontinued for Fedora users?
For those that need it here are the steps:
1 - get pdfedit-0.4.5-4.fc15.src.rpm
2 - extract from it
pdfedit-4.5.4.tar.bz2 pdfedit.spec and pdfedit.desktop
3 - follow the steps shown in
and install the packages needed for building process
Running "su -c 'pm-powersave true'" (or false) on Fedora 16 seems not
to run /etc/pm/power.d/00script , which according to the man page
seems it is expected to.
00script is marked executable.
Any ideas why it is not running? /var/log/pm-powersave.log is a empty file.
Running /etc/pm/power.d/00script manually works .
I want to use runlevel 4 (same as runlevel 5 but with a small difference in networking).
But how to start X in runlevel 4? Currently it starts only in runlevel 5.
Any pointer(s) welcome.
