Just took the leap in to Fedora 18 from 17.
In Fedora 17, I simply added a custom rule in the old
system-config-firewall to point to a file that had a trust of the
libvirt based virbr0 interface.
The new system-config-firewall has me a bit confused....
I would like to keep the new firewalld and it's initial presumption that
my em1 and wlan0 interfaces are in the "public" zone generally not
allowing unsolicited inbound activity. This appears to be the default
I would like to associate the virbr0 interface, created by libvirtd, to
be considered part of the "internal" zone, since I "trust" my own VMs
talking to the host. But, what is the "supportable" method for
accomplishing this? There is no ifcfg- where I could put the firewall
Thanks in advance,
i'm trying to install my webcam SWEEX WC250 HD under Fedora 18.
i didn't find any driver for that so after reading posts, i discovered that
v4l2 tool could help me, but when i click on "lsusb output"
button...nothing happen... v4l-tool is 1.0.3
any idea ?

after a while living with ubuntu, i'm moving back to fedora as of
F18, and would like some advice. i have an ASUS G74S with twin 750G
drives, but i want to replace the boot drive with an SSD, and install
F18 in such a way as to maximize the benefit of the SSD for booting
and (mostly) R/O storage.
a lot of my time will be spent doing lengthy compiles (kernel,
openembedded), so in addition to system content on the SSD, i'll want
to keep all of my source there as well, while the build directories
will be on the regular drive.
is there a recommendation for installing F18 in terms of separating
what's appropriate for the SSD versus what isn't? most of that is
fairly obvious, just wondering if anyone wrote up something about
their experience doing just that and how well it worked for them.

If you want people to know exactly what it sounds like, and maybe help
with diagnosis, upload a small sound file somewhere.
It could well be that one of your computers has a bad sound card. My
laptop has a next-to-useless one, as far as inputting audio goes.

Greetings. It appears that I don't have an nvidia kernel module for the
latest kernel for f17. Please see the appended for some details about my
The system boots fine into run-level 3 with the latest kernel, but it hangs
"forever" when I try to boot into run-level 5.
Fortunately, the system also boots fine into run-level 5 with the penultimate
kernel, which I'm using at the moment.
I installed the *kmod-nvidia stuff shortly after f17 appeared, and I've been
happily sleep-walking through kernel updates ever since. Now I've been rudely
I've rebooted the system several times, on the theory that one of the *kmod
packages would "notice" the version mismatch and compile a new module. That
hasn't happened so far.
Maybe I'm missing something obvious. Any comments? Thanks.

How can I set a background image now that xsri is now longer being
distributed with Fedora? I couldn't see anything in the release notes
about it being dropped or about a suitable replacement. For the time
being, I'm using "xv -rmode 1", but clearly that's not the approved
solution, since it's not free software and hence can't be distributed
