I've installed fc3-x86_64 on my new amd64 box. gftp fails when fetch a file:

Tried a bunch of other ftp sites. same thing. lftp works.
All is well did a full up2date and can get to gnome now on FC3 Final

I am trying to debug some new FC3 boxes and I am trying to figure out
some issues that seem to be kernel related, but I could be barking up
the wrong tree.
Our current pcap collectors and NFS servers are Debian woody boxes
with a mixture of unstable patches on them. We had some hard-drive
failures, and I snapped on Fedora Core 3 with updates on those to a)
because I had a hard time with Debian installer b) I wanted to get the
systems for RHEL-4 when it comes out (to meet some security
requirements we are being handed).
The way the systems are set up at the moment are something like this
[pcap collector] -------- [data analyzer]
All the network cards are E1000's and the link between the 2 boxes is
a cross-over optic fiber link. The pcap collector grabs its data and
then FTP's it over to the data analyzer every couple of minutes (the
files are 6 to 15 gigabytes in size and NFS was too slow/borked when
this was originally designed in 1999). If the connection goes down,
the Pcap box spools them until the Analyzer is ready. The problem we
are seeing is that when transferring multiple large and small files
over to the Analyzer the FC3 box seems to get into dazed and confused
mode. The vsftpd server accepts files at 30mb/s for a bit, then either
stops all together or slows down to 200 kb/s and doesnt pick up.
I have played with every option I can in the vsftpd configuration and
cant find anything that makes a difference. The only issue I can find
is that various kernel 'daemons' go into D state when this occurs
(pdflush, kswapd, kjournald).
A second 'related' issue is that I am trying to explain to the users
why ping is so much slower than with Debian. The Debian NetKit ping
will do a flood ping of 10000 1500sized packets in 30 seconds. The FC3
takes 3 minutes with what looks like some sort of backoff algorithm to
play nicely. I am not sure if it is truely related, but the fellows
who I am working with have been doing networking since 84 and it is
not what they are wanting.
Any help would be appreciated.

This is yet another attempt at fixing the problem where the
gam_server goes into an infinite loop (or other nastyness) which
are very likely to be related to GList free pool corruptions. Since
I got new reports with 0.0.18, this version tries to reduce the
risk of silent corruption of those structure and improve debugging
People experiencing problems with gam_server should try to update
and report if they can reproduce the problems and report so in
If no negative report is shown this will be pushed as a final
update at the end of the week,

i've had numerous flavors of fc1, fc2, and fc3 on three different
machines with sound cards ... and so far have been never been able to
get sound working.
i just installed fc3 on new vaio vgn-a200 (wiped clean, no dual-boot)
... got the wireless working (with the 2200 add-in stuff) and the
controller giving ac & battery information (again following various
directions gleaned from using search engine). however, i've abeen
unsuccesful getting linux sound support working on this machine (sound
is active since the bios does a little tune on power-up).
another wierd thing happened on this machine w/new fc3 ... i added
several additional resolutions to xorg.conf. i used kde to change to
1920x1200 ... and then because most things were much too small ... i set
it back to 1280x1024. it appears like the resolution has to be changed
using both kde and gnome utilities. using kde to set it to 1280x1024 and
then switching to gnome ... the display looks correct ... but the
mouse/cursor position is off by about 2inches ... i have to have the
cursor 2 inches to the right of something i'm selecting ... until i used
the gnome utilitty to also change the resolution.
The following error is being reported when trying to start BNR2 with FC3
but not with FC2. Any ideas of what could cause this? Could this be a

I yum updated against my rsynced rawhide tree this morning and rebooted.
The result was an unusable system. Many of the shared library symlinks
in /lib and /usr/lib are gone. I would advise against updating your
rawhide machines until the rpms responsible for this damage are taken
out and shot.
If you're already toast, booting from the rescue cd will allow you to
get into /mnt/sysimage/lib and create the symlink to libtermcap.so.2
that bash needs to run. After that, it's a matter of going in and fixing
the missing symlinks when things break, which is often.
Something has gone wrong which means I can't start my main linux box and it's
When I did an update to the current testing kernel, I had the error that
/proc/partitions couldn't be opened and as such, a conversion couldn't be
done. grubby then gave a fatal error.
When I do a reboot, the bootloader fires up, but when I choose a kernel, all I
get it that the kernel can't be found (file not found)
I have /boot on /dev/hda2
Any ideas on getting this working?

That's what I've been doing for most thigns (actually chcon, the
restorecon looks like it's probably a better choice), but some
installation programs will fail if they cannot ldconfig the appropriate
files (i've run into wine and the nvidia driver so far). It seems like
the libraries are being created with the wrong contexts, I actually did
get my two examples to work by changing the context quickly using
another console but I don't want to have to dink with this every time I
install something new.
