I've got several machines on a LAN behind a NAT with DHCP assigning
always the same addresses from a dynamic IP.
A couple of days ago the IP changed & since then, one of the machines
running Fedora 17 always fails first time to connect to the network:
launch Thunderbird, no start screen, first attempt to check mail, it
tells me that there's no network connection, second attempt it connects.
The scheduled DejaDup backup always fails with no network but will run
manually no problem. Firefox can't find Google but the Nagios
web interface is fine as is all the cli stuff (ping, ssh, etc).
Most annoyingly, yum update goes through every mirror before partially
downloading part of the updates & if the updates are large, it takes
about three attempts to get them all installed.
I'd like to clear this up naturally especially as in the next couple of
weeks I'll be upgrading this box to Fedora 18 & the last thing I need is
a dodgy network connection.
All the machines below are on the same LAN & they all work fine after
the IP address change, it's only the Fedora box that's causing problems.
Any help appreciated. I'm stuck.

I'm experiencing random freezes of two desktops, both up-to-date FC 18,
totally different hardware (Core2Duo E5300, Core i7), different Graphis
Cards but both Nvidia using nouveau with a dual monitor setup.
Desktop completely freezes, Num Lock on keyboard is dead. Gut feeling
tells me it is induced by scrolling.
When happening, I can ssh into the machine, everything looks perfectly
normal. No 100% CPU on nothing, no zombies, no whatever. Nothing in
dmesg, Xorg.0.log, messages.
Restart of graphical.target does not do anything, when killing
/usr/bin/X (with -9 though) I get kdm back.
Any thoughts where to debug further?
I have an fc17 system in which I've had to change the ethernet
controller from an e1000e card to what I believe is an rtl81391`2. I
recall changing the 70-persistent-net udev config file, but that
appears to no longer exist on my fc17 system.
What is the proper procedure for detecting, initializing, and
reconfiguring the system to use my new card?
I believe I'll also had to use dracut to recreate the initrd. I will
also need to detect for sure which driver the new ethernet controller
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?
I have two F18 systems.
1) when I open Connect to server I see the list of recent connected
server and I have also the Explore button
2) in a fresh installed system I don't have the server list and also
explore button is missing
Both system connect each other fine with smb or sftp.
What am I missing??

Subject: retrofitting LUKS encryption on installed system
I've got a F19 installation that I'd like to turn into a fully encrypted
system with LUKS.
There are many howtos on the web for encrypting a partition, but they
all show doing it to /home.
No, just re-install.
One partition with /boot and another with an encrypted volume-group, holding /, swap and the rest.
But before embarking on that trip, do you really need full disk encryption?
I mean, the content of /usr is on any fedora-cd ;-) And when up-and-running, everything is unlocked.
The only valid reason I can think about, is that other people have physically access to your machine and could get root-access by booting from cd/dvd, and might alter your system.
It surely works, but at a performance price. And the certainty that you have to enter the LUKS-key each time you boot.

I reinstalled Fedora 18 with KDE and I notice a change in
the order in which directories and files are displayed.
In some applications, the sort is now case sensitive, so
that all the initial capitals are listed before the initial
lower case names. Previously, the names were sorted without
I see this behavior in Firefox, Thunderbird, Acroread and
others. There are other application where the file dialog
sorts files using a case insensitive sort, like Dolphin, k3b,
I edited kdeglobals to add "Sort case insensitively=true" to
the [KFileDialog Settings] section. This should be the
default. It did not make any difference.
Any suggestions on how to set the file name sort order?

So, I decided to try installing GoogleEarth (GE) for the first time
ever. I found the following:
and tried it the following:
% wget -c
%sudo yum localinstall google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
But I got the following:
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/bin from install of google-earth-stable-184.108.40.2061-0.x86_64
conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64
Any way around it?

I see in the Fedora-19 release notes that CUPS will be upgraded to 1.6. The page on that:
says this involves using pdf rather than postscript as the baseline document format. While wrestling to get printing working on my system this past spring, the printer's manufacturer (Xerox) told me that my printer was "GDI" based. I don't really know how printers and their drivers work, but I'm guessing that the Linux drivers for this printer are converting psotscript out by LibreOffice, the Linux print command, the browser, etc. to GDI, and sending that GDI to the printer.
My question: Will the coming CUPS upgrade break printing on my system? or has this been properly accounted for in CUPS 1.6?
