Yes, I know it's really crazy, but I wanted to test the fedora PPC
After installing PPC packages from Fedora in an iMac DV (I just avoided
initscripts, devlabel, gpm and mkinitrd), I was wondering why everything
worked fine except for mozilla/epiphany. I even rebuilt from SRPMs
several 1.4.1 SRPMs releases with 100% of negative results, until I
examined the mozilla spec file and found out why Fedora's mozilla RPMs
for PPC are broken:
# build mozilla - XCFLAGS is for NSS which can't use CFLAGS for
# various reasons
Guess the PPC mozilla packages were built just doing rpmbuild --rebuild.
has mozilla _PPC_ binary pacakges built with OPTFLAGS=-O2 and
After removing these lines from the spec file, that really should
consider other architectures, and doing rpmbuild -bb, I could
successfully build mozilla packages that actually _work_ on PPC.

There are still some probs due to the system wide usage of uft8. One of
them is addressed in bug 107834 regarding characters above ascii 128 in
Filenames (e.g. samba shares with windows clients).
Similar problems arise, if you use evolution to exchange mail with a
windows user and even with a linux guy not using Red Hat. Characters
above ascii 128 look "silly" and are unreadable.
Of course, you can change the system default in /etc/sysconfig/i18n to
use another locale. This solves some problems but rises others.
Localised output of some local programs get unreadable and/or look quit
@Redhat: are there concrete planings to address these issues which
existent since introduction of utf8 as a system default?
Does anyone know if the cups* and coreutils RHSAs that are appearing
today affect the current Fedora RPMs?
up2date/yum don't show any updates for them, but with the freeze that
seems to be on I don't know how to take that sign.
If they are vulnerable, is there a way to shore up my box until the
I am a theoretical chemist. Fear me! Please.

releasing things on fridays suck. You get little publicity and media coverage.

Hi everyone ,
I've been trying to run the TUX and that what I got :

Does anyone has ideas ?
I am trying to get postfix and pine working together using the postfix
rpm that comes with severn and Mike Harris's pine rpm. I can send a message
from the command line just fine but if I try to use pine it will not send.
I get the following in the logs:
Nov 3 00:33:53 tigger postfix/smtpd: connect from localhost[127.0.0.1]
Nov 3 00:33:53 tigger postfix/smtpd: 761723CC2: client=localhost[127.0.0.1]

Nov 3 00:35:15 tigger postfix/smtpd: disconnect from localhost[127.0.0.1]
Google says that sendmail and postdrop binaries are from different postfix versions
but I rm'd the postfix rpm and reinstalled it. My pine config file is the same one
I have been using for a couple of years. It works fine on 8.0.
Anyone else tried this??

False alarm. I need to change Iptables a little all

I remember having read in previous messages, that the Fedora 2.4 kernel
is compiled using a different gcc version as the default. So, if I would
like to recompile the kernel or to compile additional modules for the
kernel I have to take provisions to use that older version.
Unfortunately I can't remember the details and could find detailed
descriptions in the archiv.
Is this still true and could someone give me the necessary information?

Add the following line to /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv4.tcp_ecn = 1
RHL/Fedora reads this file on every startup and adjusts settings
accordingly. If you make changes to /etc/sysctl.conf, you can run
`sysctl -p` to force the system to re-read the file without a reboot.
As root you can run `sysctl -a | less` to read all about the other
settings available through this cool facility (such as for firewalls,
etc.). I prefer this as opposed to echoing to proc, but it may not be
portable to other flavors of Linux. sysctl.conf settings take effect
earlier than they would if placed in rc.local.
I update the XFree86 to 4.3.0-42 today.
I notice that the fonts change a lot now. However, I think they are worse
If you are somebody like me, who choose Chinese as default, you will find
the characters become so obscure now. I believe that if this is still
existed, fedora should not be released.
I use a notebook with 14.1 @ 1024*768. So I try to reset fonts using LCD
mode in font setting. But it seems no changes happened.
So please chech-out want is wrong in that.
