I was setting up a test pc to check if I finally could get my USB2 Iomega HD
working under linux. Unfortunatly I couldn't and I was wondering if it should
work after installing kernel-2.6.0-1.21.i686.rpm.
After a reboot, I got the following message:
VFS: mounted root (ext2 filesystem)
Red Hat nash version 3.5.14 starting
Loading jbd.ko module
Loading ext3.ko module
mounting /proc filesystem
creating block devices
scanning logical volumes
vgscan -- LVM driver(module not loaded?)
I haven't posted it yet on bugzilla, because I'm not sure if I did it the good
way. I configured my hd with LVM, installed the Severn beta (so not core 1!)
and then I downloaded and installed that kernel rpm.
Was this the good way (if so, then I'll submit a bugreport), or did I also had
to install some other components that should let LVM works?

If anyone is interested in trying the latest and greatest EPIA-M/KM-400 driver updates I've
been doing there is a via_drv.o module available at
Which you can drop into /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers, set your chipset to "via"
in /etc/X11/XF86Config and test. This should have everything in it that the nonfree
drivers have except 3D (which is going to need major work to fix up) and the MPEG
engine which is getting some initial investigation now- the biggest problem being that
X has no "mpeg slice engine" interface yet.

Excellent idea. This will do nothing but help improve rpm quality. +1

I would argue against disabling this feature altogether. IMO, building
signed rpms from trusted specfiles/sources should *always* be possible
(without making it a 2 step process).
why not use XFree86 -config
is it unstable?
they say it will autodetect everything (almost :))
Kudzu doesn't seem to detect if you switch your monitor so would
starting XFree86 with -config be a good idea?

First off I would like to say how much I enjoy Fedora, and I think it
is an awesome distro. The question I have is, how exactly do you
configure the kernel to work on other machines in the rpm. Maybe I
didn't phrase that right, basically what I mean, is it seems that
during the install the kernel does some configuration on-the-fly (maybe
I'm wrong) and I was just curious how you configure this
one kernel to work on various system setups. Also, what exactly do you
need to do to create the rpm of this kernel, do you configure it, then
do make rpm, or do you just do make rpm without any configuration to
leave a full kernel.
Here at work we've got a Z800 IBM Mainframe and I'm maintaining
a bunch of RPM packages up to date since our first installation, which
I'd like to know if there is a maintainer of S390 of Fedora
port, which I want to help. If not, I can start working on it.

Another possibility is to use daemontools. It installs a signal inittab
entry and handles logging etc. It seems to me that a mechanism like it
would be a good addition to fedora, as sysvinit scripts are a decidedly
unconvenient way to add a service sometimes. Think of that must-have
counter-strike server, etc :)
