Some trouble with Fedora installations. I've never had any trouble on my
system and therefore am not well versed with what may be going wrong.

Yes, I have seen that.
But I think Sayamindu's suggestion to automatically route the traffic
to community pages is a nice one and I was talking with respect to

Subject: I need Fedora 13 CD
I am S.Madan, a college student from Chennai(Tamil Nadu). I am really
inspired by seeing how fedora works on my college PCs and i want to
use it in my home. As I dont have internet connection in my home, I
cant download the latest fedora 13. I learn t that fedora is offering
CD free of cost through FreeMedia Program. I would be happy if I get
My residential address is as follows:

We had shortly discussed an app that notifies the user of a new comic
strip at the recent FAD. I got down to it last week and have come up
with a release. I call it "loki". It's really raw right now. It uses
libcurl and libconfig to read from a conf file and check for the
availability of a new comic strip. It does this by comparing the stored
previous issue time stamp with the "Last-modified" tag of the HTTP
header returned by the site's rss feed.
I haven't incorporated the notification area pop up and auto checking
yet. Its on my TODO list for the next release.
The app is "Autotoolized". Thanks Siddhesh for the workshop and links
later to get me started.
You can get the tars here
Please give it a try. Feedback is more than welcome.
The current reporter cannot complete the review because of lack of time.
Would someone here want to take over this package? The review is almost
finished. Just a few tweaks are needed to get the package approved.
I would like to step down from my role as a Fedora mentor for
Ambassadors and let someone else take over since I haven't had much time
to do a good job of it lately. If you are interested, let me know here
or offlist and I will forward conversations/names to Fedora Ambassadors
Steering Committee. They will have final say. Thanks.
I'd like to confirm if I can approve recoll which uses some build
deps that it ships in the tar itself. Namely, "unac" and "binc imap".

AFAIK, these need to be packaged separately and then used as BRs.
However, the modifications made for use in the package make it a little
Any help would be appreciated.
Fedora 13, KVM runs Windows as guest. Need to access a USB device
