I have at last found a distro which works without bugs in my Acer Aspire One
(8GB SSD). Fedora 10 works on it out-of-the-box.
Do you recommend to change from Gnome desktop to XFCE desktop in order to
make it a bit faster?
It looked to me as simple as first uninstall Gnome, then install XFCE, but I
read a discussion to avoid it, because XFCE has so many Gnome depencies.
So what I am doing now is installing XFCE in addition to Gnome, in order to
use it when I use my own profile, as well as i plan to use some more
lightweight browser like Dillo or Kazehakase.
Does this make sense to you?
I have a very weird problem.
Compaq Presario F500. Only about a year old.
Recently (past few weeks), whenever I boot up, the following
keys are non responsive; asdfjkl; and the enter key.
If I wait a few minutes, like 3 or 4 minutes, they start
working. If I restart a couple of times, they start
working too, however, I think this is the same 3-4
It would appear to be a hardware problem (bad keyboard),
however, once the keys start working, I never have another
problem, until the next reboot.
Could there be some software issue here?
I really like the laptop, works well, I really don't
want to take it apart unless I have to.
Hi, i have a big problem with keyboard in my laptop, iam using a
us-international, but the ć ( cedilla ) dont works. In my login screen

works, i have install the vmware 6.5.1, and when i start the guest machine,
the up, down, left, right dont works to. In my ttyX works, only in my gnome

library share. Someone can help me ?

Nice but... if the file is marked as %config in the RPM, the
replacement from the update will be renamed as .rpmnew and you will
need to move it back over your hand edited file.
If not, then it will be overridden anyway with the correct values at
the first update (which I bet is going to happen pretty soon...)
So, IMHO, not worthwhile
I get this error from yum (remove) :

However, this does not stop the operation. Just prints the above message after
successfully completing the operation.
Does anyone know how to fix this ?
