Does anyone care to help me change the negative connotation that the
outside world has of this term, one step at a time? The CBC just used the
term with a negative frame on the Tuesday, 23 April 2013 30-minute radio
news at about the half-way point. Everyone ought to go to this link and
suggest that they should quit abusing the term.
to listen to her abuse of the term, go to the link with "contact" removed /
deleted - before Wednesday, 25 April at UTC 01:00 (PDT 18:00, in case I did
the math wrong).
Of course, the media are infamous for abusing scientific terms, such as
calling the Higgs boson the god particle - a term scientists loathe - so I
out not lose too much sleep over it.

AGAIN: learn to use your mail-client and quote before use mailing-lists
if you want to play political games go somewhere else and leave
distribution specific lists in peace!
AND ESPECIALLY DO NOT TAKE THEM TO THE DEVEL-LIST
IT IS UNBELIEVABLE HOW YOU ACT WITH E-MAIL
I'm not sure I think anyone will figure out what this
is or how to fix it, but it seems strange enough to
send to the list for the amusement value alone :-).
At first, it looks like my system rebooted, but
it is actually still running fine and a couple
of console VT switch keyboard sequences gets
This is the modeline which works:

Now i can watch movies and tv in living room.
Wireless mouse + fvwm is enough.
Bye xbmc and DLNA, it's more comfortable to have complete desktop on TV.
HW (H264) acceleration is working too.

Since i don't (and don't want) to have a web server, i can provide this
only by email. Binaries too, if you wish.
Not that I'm a fan of gaming, but I discovered the web site y8.com by
chance and I liked the games, and they even offer a download option.
The games are in swf format, and even having gnash installed, not all of
the games I downloaded are working. Reading the info for gnash I can see
that "Gnash is capable of reading up to SWF v9...". Taking a look at the
files I downloaded:
$ file *.swf
AmericanRacing.swf: Macromedia Flash data (compressed),
coasterracer2.swf: Macromedia Flash data (compressed),
Formula Racer 2012_May_4th_2012.swf: Macromedia Flash data (compressed),
virtual_drums.swf: Macromedia Flash data (compressed),
In fact, the only one that plays nicely is virtual_drums.swf. Question
is: how can I play the other files whose versions are > 9 in Fedora? All
that I found in Google refers to Adobe Player, but the download links
are for the flash plugin for the web browser.
Any help is appreciated.

After upgrade from 17 to 18 with fedup and installing all the updates I was
unable to login as any user other than root. When I tried I was greeted with
the message: "System is booting up".
After beating my head against the wall I finally tried booting to runlevel
5 instead of 3. That fixed the issue. But booting to runlevel 3 and switching
to 5 doesn't work.
Possibly a problem with systemd?
