Is it possible for me to use two separate internet connections, one via
eth0 and the other via wlan0 at the same time?
I have been allotted a wireless connection from University, however this
one presents some trouble in certain tasks (It's also deactivated from
0000 to 0600). Because I intend to set up a server where some of my
friends would hold accounts (for fedora-tour development etc.), I got
myself an Airtel internet connection (it needs to be on 24x7). It would
be great if I could use them both simultaneously and specify what
program should use what interface.
I am free media member and use to get huge request for free fedora DVD.
Due to this, I was forced to create a separate label in gmail as free-media.
Normally, I use to write fedora in a normal DVD and deliver them.
There are many who show me an eager or want to get CD/DVD packed in a
Now, I am thinking and also want to deliver them fedora DVD something like this:
if possible something like my old fedora 5:
currently I am unemployed (preparing for higher studies, M.Tech).
So, it is not possible for me to support the cost of printing the dvd
banner for all fedora DVDs(4 or 5 printout is not a issue but for
20/30(minimum) print-out per month).

I have been working on wordgroupz for some time.
Now, wordgroupz is almost ready with a new look,
games, statistics, sound, wiktionary browser, etc.
I feel, with wordGroupz, it will be very interactive and
easy to learn new words you come across.
To install wordgroupz, download
http://rtnpro.fedorapeople.org/rtnpro.repo into /etc/yum.repos.d/ and
#yum install wordgroupz
The wordgroupz source is hosted at:
As you might know, the Government of India has recently announced a sign to
indicate the Indian Rupee. Several IT-industry leaders are taking an active
and critical role in this process and are working with the Department of IT
(DIT) to enable the new sign in ICT environments.
As a part of the process, an online survey is created to collect peoples’
preference for the location of the Indian-Rupee sign on QWERTY keyboards. The
results of this survey will be presented to the DIT.
The survey contains just *one question *and is* *available at
http://bit.ly/9i8TCa. Answering the question should need no more than a
minute. Please be one of the first to complete this survey.
If the bit.ly link does not work, please try this alternative link:
Also, *please encourage others in your sphere of influence to complete this
(To make it easier on the recipient, please reproduce the text of this mail,
instead of just forwarding this mail, because after some number of forwards,
the actual message gets buried at the bottom of the thread.)
Thank you in advance for participating in this critical aspect of the
deployment of the Indian-Rupee sign.

You can request a Free Fedora 13 DVD at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FreeMedia , but the free media form is closed
now, AFAIK, it will be opened beginning of each and every month.
If you need a Fedora DVD ASAP, you can buy one from

I cannot guarantee that above two will work, there is fair chance that your
web cam will work.
> >3. LG DVD Writer
It will work.
Instead of winamp Fedora has a music player named rhythmbox, you may need
to install gstreamer pluggins to enable media playback. Installing gstreamer
plug-gins needs internet connection. Fedora will automatically try to
install these plug-ins from the internet , once you try to open media files.
You can install unrar from rpmfusion repositories. http://rpmfusion.org/
We have winace support in Fedora.
>8. HandyCam photo editing software (bought from HomeShop 18)
We have a photo editor/manager named shotwell. You can use a software named
'gimp' to edit photos.

Please install wine for this purpose. http://www.winehq.org/

It must work in Fedora 13. Good luck.

I don't have any experience with Asterix. I suggest you to use Google,
before asking any questions. Thanks for understanding.
