I have a laptop which has encrypted root "/" partition containing F9, a /opt
partition also encrypted, and this has a /home sub-directory within it, and
an unencrypted /boot partition.
If I do a clean in stall of F10 from the DVD iso once it is released, are there
any known problems likely to arise and should I be able to do a straightforward
install but yet retain access to the encrypted /opt partition?
In addition is it possible during the install to get the system to use the same
passphrase for the luks encryption for the / as well as the pre-existing /opt
partitions, and at the same time get the boot process to only ask for this
Also the swap partition is encrypted - presumably the same encryption is possible
with the pre-existing swap partition during install?
The system that is currently on the machine was an original clean F9 install.
I just tried to install the Fedora 10 i386 preview using only the first CD.
Even after going to "customize packages now" and deselecting all
non-essential packages, including Office and Productivity on the first
screen, and then all the boxes not under Base System on the second
screen (e.g. GNOME Desktop, Graphical Internet, Editors, Graphics,
etc, etc.), it still told me I needed CD 1 and CD 2, and I could not
This left me with a re-formatted root partition and no bootable OS.
Please take steps to ensure at least the base operating system
packages are all available on CD 1.

I remember a message some days ago (that I don't find anymore, not
sure if it was on this list or other post) saying that if we,
fedora-testing users, wanted to give test for the post -release
updates, we could enable updates-testing in rawhide....
So I went for it... specifically to test eventual improvements of kde
4.1.3 over 4.1.2...
But probably I misleaded the message
If from gnome I try to connect to Places/connect to server/Windows Share
and enter the name of the vista computer, I get and error box saying
Cannot disply location "smb://myvistacomputer/" No application is
registered as handing this file. Yet, if I use the ip address of the
vista computer I get access to the shares on the vista machine.
What am I doing wrong, or what do I need to do right? The vista machine
s ip address is not static and changes as computers on the network are
I had to reinstall F9 and when I tried to run yum -y update, the message returned was about missing repositories for F9.
Should there not be at least a single file that updates the yum repository information to point to the new locations?
With a single Ethernet port, disabling network manager and
enabling network apparently allows a simple static IP to be set.
With two ports, the result is utter confusion. Eth0 talks to
the cloud address 22.214.171.124 mask 255.255.255.252
Gateway is 126.96.36.199
Eth1 talks to the local subnet as 192.168.1.13
Turns out the other parameters ends up as modifications of
the accredd key. I had to turn off all network autocongs
and set the parameters manually.

Sorry if I'm extrapolating from too little info, but it looks like it
isn't possible to boot F10 / rawhide from a SCSI disk.
If there is anything I can to to help with diagnosing the problem,
please let me know.
