FC6 seems to be following a familiar pattern. FC6 after install worked
nearly perfectly. After a Shutdown->Hibernate (suspend to disk) the
networking would recover on restore. However a few "updates" later
this does not appear to work as smoothly anymore.
For some reason I must issue a "ifconfig wifi0 up" command before
Network Manager has any chance of re-establishing a connection.
Is this a bug or mis-configuration or ... ?
It's a Thinkpad T41p with a Atheros wireless chipset ("MadWifi" driver
which are installed separately)
Is there driver for IBMT23 (S3 Savage)? I was trying to play DVD using Movie
Player but can't display properly. I tried Xine too but it displayed missing
plugins.. I tried re-installing totem-xine and plugins but to no avail it
failed on the same error.
Solution for me:
I installed VLC media player and twicked my xorg.conf and added '1024x768".
After I modified this file, I was able to watch DVD and the quality was
Does anyone know the best way of getting support for Fn keys? (both on
my Vaio S1XP and more generally)
In my case, I've loaded the sonypi module but I can't assign the Fn
volume shortcuts to the volume actions in Gnome, for instance, as they
There has been support for this when I've been running other
distributions, so I know it can be done. I'm happy to try and do some
of the work myself but am not quite sure where to start.
How to access a wireless network configuration menu? Ie somewhere
where I can scan for available networks, select a network, enter WEP
key and other misc settings.
I've scanned release notes, help, and all the system menus, but it's
nowhere to be found. I would have though something like this would

I have come across a problem with AIGLX/compiz on my Dell C610.
The desktop-effect "Workspace on a cube" does not work properly when the
screen is 1024x768 resolution. The desktop seems to be reduced to the
upper left quadrant and the menubar is not displayed completely. When in
this mode, you can't get to any of the menus to turn off the effect,
logout or reboot. After experimenting I found it does function correctly
in 800x600 resolution.
Luckily I tried this with a test user account. Once it got in this mode,
the quickest/easiest way to recover was to reboot, login as another
user, delete the testuser account and then add it back.

A quick search found few notebook write ups about FC6 so I though I'd
post my review.
Overall I am more that satisfied with Fedora Core 6 on my notebook.
FC6 is rock solid and AIGLX/Compiz integration is awesome.
