I have the yarrow's iso files on my HD in a RH9 system. Let's say I want
to upgrade selected packages using an "apt-get install" pointing to my
iso-mounted files, how do I do it?
i.e I mount the iso into some /mnt/yarrow1, /mnt/yarrow 2 etc..
Then what is the complete procedure to make my apt look into my own HD to
upgrade packages. Can anybody redirect me to the correct
resource or some literature hanging on the web? Thanks.
Assume also that I do not wish to burn CDs! I do not want to use

I have no more time to support the following packages in the Fedora.
jack-audio-connection-kit -- The Jack Audio Connection Kit
klamav -- Clam Anti-Virus on the KDE Desktop
man-pages-uk -- Ukrainian man pages from the Linux Documentation Project
python-alsa -- Python binding for the ALSA library
qstat -- Real-time Game Server Status for FPS game servers
uniconvertor -- Universal vector graphics translator
With Best Regards,
I just orphaned gdk-pixbuf in pkgdb.
It failed the mass rebuild, not much left that depends on it, and
nothing I need. ;)
% repoquery --source --whatrequires gdk-pixbuf
So, if anyone really really really wants to keep it alive, feel free to
take it and fix it so it builds and works. ;)
This is something I got in my mail box today.
As I don't have a valid answer for this, maybe someone else can answer for me?

Over the course of the day I recieved 22^3 mails from your friendly Bug Zapper.
Most of those bugs where bugs I had reported upon crashes using
bug-buddy. Bugs on different desktop tools such as .. synergy,
evolution, gwibber , gnome-settings and probably some others
I do understand that I development goes on and on .. and your fancy
devs don't care anymore about
bugs I reported on Fedora 12 as they are all hacking on Fedora 15.
But what I don't get is that non of these bugs was ever touched,
they've been automatically created , and automatically closed
<a href="http://tieguy.org/blog/2004/09/">Luis</a> already told us
ages ago .. that every project needs a bugmaster apparently Fedora
replaced that bugmaster with a Bug Zapper.
So can someone please explain my why I should continue to try to
improve Fedora by reporting bugs ?
Hey, folks. If you follow the trac ticket notifications on test@ you may
have noticed this already, but I know it's easy to tune those out, and
I'm CCing devel@ so people following that list know about this too.
We're planning a Fedora IPv6 Test Day to coincide with World IPv6 Day on
June 8. This has been kicked off by some folks inside Red Hat whose job
it is to understand IPv6 (those poor, poor kids), so thanks to Linda and
her team for bringing it to the Fedora community. We have a trac ticket
for co-ordinating the event here:
and the Wiki page for it is here:
it would be really good if people can pencil in this event on their
calendars so we can get some testing of Fedora 15's IPv6 preparedness,
and it would also be great if those who understand what the hell they're
doing with IPv6 could check over the Wiki page for accuracy and
completeness. Finally it would also help if people who don't understand
what the hell they're doing with IPv6 - like me! - could try and follow
the instructions, and let us know - via this thread, or the trac ticket
- if they struggle or find something unclear or don't seem to be able to
make it work as intended, so we can improve the instructions. I've
already noted, for example, that it's not particularly clear what you
should do if you're using a router - whether to try and set the tunnel
up on the router, or whether you can just do it on one of the machines
behind the router.

Is there any chance for this to land in Fedora 15?
It is rather an important fix because it changes the label of the search bar in Overview mode which is currently mistranslated. The fix is on its way to upstream, but they say the earlier it shows up is the next version of GNOME 3 that is to come out this Autumn. Getting it in sooner is strongly desired.

In a move that will surprise few, I'm retiring hal-info in devel and
orphaned it in f15. If hal gets blocked for f16, then I'll do the same
The only thing that requires hal-info is hal, and libmtp-hal.
