I was surprized that F17 uses OpenJDK7 by default but does not includes
OpenJDK6 packages also, like F16 did.
If I have some app which cannot run on Java 7, what should I do? I know
I can download the proprietary JDK6 from Oracle, but I'd rather use OpenJDK.
I tried installing OpenJDK6 packages from F16 but yum complains they are
obsoleted by OpenJDK7. I also tried downloading IcedTea6 sources and
compiling, but they stop with an "internal compiler error".

I fully dont understand the approach that may be taken as workaround to
USFI Secure Boot for Fedora:
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
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.
will I need to pay $99 to use linux,etc. what about other distros?
I know will be speculating at this point but wondering what could be the
reprecussions if this method is taken?
First, preupgrade-cli does not work, stops in some .py stuff. Can't get
info, b'cause another comp. No problem, pure preupgrade went smoothly
trough, new 17 all ok, so far. When closing comp kernel panic, again
can't produce message here, but remember, that can't find shutdown.sh
script was one of messages... So, my lap lenovo t61 works, but shutdown
has problems... Doomed to be alive for ever? Heh... So have to wait
other comps upgrading, probably near to 18 rc2 or something. One
question, where you guys, who know something about code and so, have
hurry... If you do distro for people, make sure u understand, that
persons like me, 60 old want to use it. KISS, KISS, u make more crowns
just waiting, not with rush. World IS IS and IS, people aren't.

To understand what happened see my email regarding the JBoss failure. It all started there.
Basically because of that failure I tried to force the JBoss-as package install under f16 kernel boot 3/4 ways through the f17 install. After successfully installing all the rest of the packages using f17 installer process, the install failed due to the rpmdb changing underneath. That was me forcing the JBoss-as installation I guess. So after the installed exited. Reboot shows no beefy miracle in the grub list.
So now it's no longer the offending JBoss-as package it's more a how do I recover from this failure at this point. Or if I can't should I just install f17 from scratch and hope my /home backup will recover nicely into f17.
Normally, I could go "Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal" and the
app "gnome-terminal" would start and po up a new terminal window with a
The default terminal size is not optimal for me and i would like to
adjust it a bit. With previous version (GNOME2), I could just do a
right-click on the icon and edit "terminal command" to something like this:
"gnome-terminal -geometry 100x35"
But now in GNOME3, I can't find out how to do it any more?
When we browse the program/app menu, we see their icons. When we click
an icon, the corresponding app will run (with default command set by
GNOME). How can we modify the command or its arguments from the default
(as in the example above for gnome-terminal)?
Any help please?
Thanks & regards,
If I have understood things correctly, the file ~/.config/dconf/user
contains all personal settings I have changed from the default. Does
anyone know a way to list the content of this file in a human readable
In the old GConf system, I figured out I could list all local settings
in this way:
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readonly:$HOME/.gconf --recursive-list /
Is there any way to do something similar in the new Gsettings/Dconf
I'm considering the purchase of a Puget Systems Echo I HDPC. It
features an Intel DH77DF (Intel H77 MiniITX) MB.
Not the point. Can anyone say (or point me to a source) if the H77
graphics are supported (have the appropriate driver) under Fedora 16.
