There are all sorts of instructions as to how to install Kmod-Nvidia on
Fedora, but I thought yum would do a better job of guessing my
configuration (x86_64, 9400 GT) to get the most up-to-date correct package
and getting everything right. So, I just typed:
yum install kmod-nvidia
Now, /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like this:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display
Option "AIGLX" "on"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
The file is only a few minutes old... So, I suppose it's a new config for
the Kmod driver. But the process was so transparent, I can't help but
wonder if all those modifications to the kernel that I read about in the
doc have been made.
If so, why not provide the documentation that all that is needed is to
type the yum command?
The Nouveau driver worked very well and, since I'm not too sure I'll
install 3D, maybe I could have kept it. But my screen kept blanking once
in a while for a few seconds. This happened with my previous computer too
-- it had an old ATI card, the same monitor and a very standard open
source driver for ATI -- but not so often and not for so long: it was just
a quick blank. I thought this might fix the problem.
Also, I intend to install a TV card and, it anything doesn't work, I'm sure
the first suggestion from Nvidia will be to install their driver. As the
material I buy is only on a one week money back guarantee, I prefer to
make sure everything works in advance.
Also, as it often happens when I download new packages, there was a socket
error and a long (~ 1-2 min) halt before another server took over. (I
forgot to save the console screen before I rebooted, but the name
"liberty" was part of it.)
After the installation finished, the rx/tx light of the modem began
flashing very fast as if there was a download occuring... or maybe an
upload if some information on the installation has to be sent back to
rpmfusion or nvidia.
No indication of what was going on appeared onscreen. Is this anything to
be concerned about? Any idea What this transfer was about?

Try the following:
$ alsamixer -c0
after adjusting those to your preference save your settings with
$ su -c '/sbin/alsactl store'
put in your password and settings should be saved for next reboot, ***unless*** an update(s) breaks your configuration and let us hope that those things don't happen :)
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?
Sorry for the off-topic post, but I'm not sure what else to do. The Flash plugin
was updated to 188.8.131.52 about a week ago. This is a security update. But
their yum repos (both i386 and x86_64) still have 184.108.40.206. I filed
https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3185733 and they promptly
closed it as NotABug. There is an updated RPM at
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ under ".rpm for other Linux" but I'm not sure
if it's identical to what the repo is supposed to provide. In any case,
providing a yum repo implies a promise that it will be kept updated. Could
people please vote for my bug in the hope of getting someone at Adobe to wake
Booting with every fc16 kernel, I always get this failure.
Failed to start LSB: UUID daemon FAILED
See 'systemctl status uuidd.service' for details.
# systemctl status uuidd.service

So, I tried to start it manually:
Failed to open/create /var/run/uuidd/uuidd.pid: No such file or directory
Even if I create dir /var/run/uuidd and restart the system,
it fails the same way, because the dirs in /var/run get removed.
But I can start it manually, if I create the dir and invoke uuidd.
Of course, it does not survive a reboot.
Also, I searched the system for uuidd.service
# locate uuidd.service
# find /lib/systemd /etc/systemd -name uuidd.\*
So, where is this service file? Or is it created dynamically at boot time?
Googling for uuidd.service shows some early development mods containing
uuidd.service.in , but it is not in latest source code of
I anyone has a solution or a clue, please share.
I hope Slashdot has it wrong, although the presented documents seem to agree
Looking up the article: "Implementing UEFI Secure Boot in Fedora" at
"The last option wasn't hugely attractive, but is probably the least worst.
Microsoft will be offering signing services through their sysdev
It's not entirely free (there's a one-off $99 fee to gain access), but it's
cheaper than any realistic alternative would have been. It ensures
compatibility with as wide a range of hardware as possible and it avoids
Fedora having any special privileges over other Linux distributions. If
there are better options then we haven't found them. So, in all
probability, this is the approach we'll take. Our first stage bootloader
will be signed with a Microsoft key."
If I have to pay $99 to Microsoft in order to install my Free/Open
Operating System, then I am making Microsoft $99 richer off the effort of
multiple volunteers that made Linux and Fedora possible and my "Free"
Operating System now effectively costs $99. And if this catches up, then
breaking the Secure Boot will eventually be a DMCA violation and we'd have
to be asking the Copyright office every three years for the "right" to
jailbreak/root our own computers again.
I'd rather go back to the times of Compatibility lists of motherboards than
enable the above state of affairs. I say NO to Danegeld for Microsoft.
