I have a weird problem; at my office every time I try to connect to my
wall outlet, my laptop gets assigned an internal IP (192.168.0.114) and
I cannot access the internet. However everything works as expected when
I use any other wall outlets. To add to this, when other laptops
connect to my wall outlet, they work properly.
This is a dump of my network connection (with DHCP enabled):
<http://pastebin.com/7bsXDMBP>. And the relevant bits from
/var/log/messages (when I get assigned the wrong IP):
Any thoughts are welcome.
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
So thunderbird 15 breaks the Exchange 2007/2010 Calendar and Tasks
Provider 1.8.5 add on. There isn't a newer version of the add-on available.
I need to revert to tbird 14. I can't seem to find an rpm or delta rpm
of it anywhere. The original f17 repo has tbird 12 and I can now only
find tbird 15 or delta rpms from 12 to 15 or 14 to 15.
Short of restoring from a backup or just using tbird 12, or just
downloading the bits from mozilla, is there a way to pick up the rpm?

I take it the official way to enter a euro symbol in vi/vim is AltGr+4.
I find this works about 20% of the time.
It usually works if it is the first character entered.
But most of the time it does not work - I just get a "4".
Do others have this experience?
Is there some setting which affects this shortcut?
I've been trying without success to find where shortcuts are listed.
IIRC there used to be a KDE Control Center, aka kcontrol,
but this seems to have disappeared.
If I go to
f=>System Settings=>Shortcuts and Gestures
I am given three choices
Standard Keyboard Shortcuts
Global Keyboard Shortcuts
What is the difference between "standard" and "global" shortcuts?
There doesn't seem to be any listing for currency shortcuts.
I don't see any option to add a shortcut.
What is a "gesture"?

I have an HP Pavilion g7-1117cl Notebook PC with F16-x64 as the os. I
have finally had the time to debug the TV interface with an hdmi
connection. I had F15 on this same unit, and was able to have both
sound and video via the hdmi interface. The F16 install was not an
upgrade, but rather a new install.
I had difficulty synchronizing the screen resolution, but solved that
problem with the installation of :
I am still unable to get the sound activated through the hdmi
Any help you can give me would be appreciated. I am loosing a love war
with my wife who plugged the hdmi cable into her MS Windows 7 machine
and it worked immediately.
I am part-way through a bare-metal rebuild of my small home server (it
was F15, I am rebuilding as F17). This machine serves up my IMAP mail
with Dovecot and Squirrelmail and hosts my small (mainly static)
The machine in question sits on my home network at 192.168.2.2. I have
opened port 993 on the firewall. I have a domain name (let's call it
example.org) with dyndns.org which points to my IP address (let's call
that 123.456.789.123) and my router forwards port 993 to 192.168.2.2.
So here's the thing - and I don't remember having this problem with F15
I can access my mail using a client on another machine in my network if
I configure it to use 192.168.2.2, but for my mobile devices I configure
the email client to point to example.org. If I am outside of my network
they can access mail fine, but if I am at home and they are connecting
via my own wi-fi... no joy...
The same by the way is true of SSH. Although I use a non-standard port
for SSH the principle is the same.
I have obviously messed up or missed out some configuration step, but I
can't understand where I have gone wrong.
Can anyone help me to fix this?
I have Fedora 17 x86_64 installed on my Samsung N145Plus netbook.
Sometimes when I close the lid the machine keep on running instead of
suspend. I need to open and close the lid again to suspend. Any idea
why? Any solution?
Is there any good tutorial on how to lower the power consumption of my
netbook? I mean sysctl, proc, etc. settings. I had Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64
and laptop-mode-tools on this machine but I had problems then I
changed my OS to Fedora 17. Most of those problems gone but instead
7-9 hours I only get 2-4 hours on battery.
Have Googled, but nothin easy. (my preferred option)
Any Fedora(ish) method to get TB15 messages,
and whatever else posssible in to Claws-Mail.
Which may encourage me to switch?
"Jack of all, fubars"
since upgrading from F16 to F17, I have a weird problem with the
monitor settings on my desktop machine.
I'm using the nouveau driver. The controller is an Nvidia GeForce 7100
GS. The controller is somewhat older, it has one DVI and one VGA plug.
Attached are two LCD monitors running a single desktop spread over both
Running under F16, everything worked as expected. With F17, every time
I boot the machine, the monitor attached to the VGA plug is wrongly
adjusted, but always in a different way. Sometimes it's just a bit off
and text on the screen is flickering. Sometimes the entire picture is
too wide, sometimes it's off to the right, or to the bottom, etc.
Either way, every morning I now have to press the magic key sequence
on the monitor to readjust the picture.
Did anybody encounter the same problem? Does anybody know how to fix
Hi. If I do:
# telnet 127.0.0.1 5038
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
Asterisk Call Manager/1.0
... And asterisk responds:
== Manager 'youwanna' logged on from 127.0.0.1
But if I use nc and do...
# nc 127.0.0.1 5038 << EOF
> Action: Login
> ActionID: 1
> Username: youwanna
> Secret: uwanna
Asterisk Call Manager/1.0
... Asterisk responds:
== Connect attempt from '127.0.0.1' unable to authenticate
Notice the TEXT is EXACTLY THE SAME (pasted in both cases) tried 762753 times or something less. Tcp port.
Why is that difference? Is nc sending a different string sequence or what?
