The Xorg r128 driver for X11 graphics has failed to startx for some weeks.
Today I tried again with the Preview DVD for Fedora 11 i386, and got the
same hang. Upon reboot into previously-working Fedora Core 4, the colors
are wrong: light yellow has become light pink. The RAMDAC has been fried.
The card is old. It could be coincidence; but beware.
I'm trying to learn how to build packages for Fedora. My first question is
about multilib development packages.
I know that compiled libraries can be installed in both 32-bit and 64-bit
versions at the same time, but is this required for -devel packages as well?
That is, is it normal to compile both 32-bit and 64-bit programs on the same
host, so that one needs both libwhatever-devel.i386 and
libwhatever-devel.x86_64, or is it permissible for the two versions of
libwhatever-devel to conflict with each other?
After a minute or two of no activity (even though reading a web page),
my monitor will go black. Like it was going to power off as if it was
set too. But my settings are the same and changed. My monitor is the
same as well as my card. This just started happening after some updates
a day or two ago. And my screensaver isn't even starting yet. The
monitor itself just goes black (like it detects no activity from
Fedora Project - Bugzapper, Tester, User, etc..
I just pushed an update in F12's rawhide (devel branch) to rb_libtorrent
which bumps its soname from "libtorrent-rasterbar.so.2" to
I also made this update in the F-11 branch, but am leaving it in the
dist-f11-updates-candidate tag until all the necessary rebuilds are
complete. (I have filed ticket #1667 asking that the excellent rel-eng
folks to have it tagged into the buildroot override.)
This is merely a bug-fix release, so a simple rebuild should be
sufficient to work with this new version. However, should any problems
arise please don't hesitate to poke me incessantly. ;)
According to repoquery, the list of dependent packages (whose owners are
CC-ed on this message) is as follows:
Miro and Deluge also depend on rb_libtorrent, but only through the
Python interface (rb_libtorrent-python), so they should not need such a
Thanks, and Regards.
