The first thing I did on my Acer that have had preinstalled Linpus: Install a distribution that can be used.
To be honest, what is the sense of Linpus? Fedora is not a meta distribution like Debian. It would be like comparing Linpus (Fedora) to Ubuntu (Debian), or apples with pies.
Please take a look to the efforts to port systemd or Unity to other main stream distributions. First, you have to solve a lot of dependency problems cause of the differences in package versions. Please don't start that chaos also on Fedora, ... okay for unstable/rawhide.
Just my 5 ct. End of ranting.
Sorry for the broadcast, but don't see a group with networking and wireless.
Can someone please recommend a list of wireless client adapters that support fedora or linux in general? I checked a few vendor, but did not see download for them.
Recent gtk updates have changed the way modifiers are handled and
therefor broken a lot of applications.
* ALT keys are broken in all gtk based terminals. There is a patch
for vte available at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=626792 but even
though it works, it seems controversial.
* xfwm4 has lost all keyboard shortcuts using CTRL. See bug
Even if the old to handle modifiers may have been wrong, this change
should not have gone into a stable release, because it breaks a lot of
applications (at least gnome-terminal, Terminal, lilyterm, sakura,
termit, terminator, xfwm4) and violates the "Avoid changing the user
experience if at all possible" rule of our updates policy.
What are we going to do now? Revert the change in gtk or fix all
Route metric is a variable that a router uses to choose the best route to a destination. Depending on the routing protocol, the metric definition is different. What I'm trying to understand is how Linux defines the metric in the route output command.
For example when a Fedora laptop has two active interfaces, Ethernet and wifi, the metric in route output, is set to 1 for Ethernet and 2 for WiFi. Reading the man page on the route command, it says the metric is defined as hop counts to a destination. Based on the above observation, this is incorrect or incomplete. It definitely include the hop count, but how fedora came up with 1 and 2. Could it be just used these number arbitrarily to indicate to IP, that the Ethernet interface is the preferred path to use to send traffic, because it's speed is faster and more reliable?
Basically what I'm looking for is the definition of the metric defintion in Linux or Fedora. And if someone shed light on the windows definition that would be great.
It would be great if somebody could package up libwacom:
It will be needed by the next version of gnome-settings-daemon and
gnome-control-center to provide support for Wacom tablets.
There's not much code in libwacom, and I expect the bugs against it to
be of the "sheperd data files to upstream" kind.
I'd be happy to review it if somebody packages.
