This may be a dumb question, but why can't Redhat distribute NVIDIA binary
In NVIDIA's licence (http://www.nvidia.com/object/nv_swlicense.html) it
"2.1.2 Linux Exception. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of Section
2.1.1, SOFTWARE designed exclusively for use on the Linux operating system
copied and redistributed, provided that the binary files thereof are not
modified in any
way (except for unzipping of compressed files)."
So, what's keeping RedHat from putting the drivers in the distribution? If
it's a GPL
thing, would it be easy to just download it during installation or at
least give the option to the user?
Ok, I have had Yarrow working well for a while now, but yesterday I
started experiencing some odd issues with my mouse. All of a sudden it
stops working correctly. The only thing that seems to fix is to kill X
and run mouse-test, then restart.
Also, I have FC 1 running on a desktop which is hooked up to a KVM
switch. Whenever I go to another PC, and return, the same thing
happens, the mouse goes crazy.

I have the same symptoms...
rpcinfo says that nfs et.al. are running.
Something has changed in test 2, since the same PC running RH9
accesses that host just fine.
Installing the OO.org 2.4 packages on F9 beta, I get this message when
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gnomebreakpad":
/opt/OOH680_m12/program/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not
found (required by /usr/lib/bug-buddy/libbreakpad.so.0)
OOo then starts and seems to run ok, but it will not run from a desktop
launcher using that same command, I presume because bug-buddy can't be
I don't know what the Fedora policy is here: does it matter at this
point whether a third-party package isn't starting cleanly? Nor do I
understand the message well enough to decide who to report it to.
It seems that OOo uses it's own libstdc++ which is not compatible with
gnomebreakpad, but I've not found a way to have gnomebreakpad look
elsewhere for that library.
Any suggestions if/where to file a report, and/or how to workaround the

Anyone else seeing this?
I am just curious to know that is there any planning already done or
in the pipe line for writing new test cases for packages in F10. I
feel we could start writing more test cases for more packages and
hence helping testers with their jobs. I am ready to work on it.
Your suggestions are welcome and if needed we could also have a
discussion on how to make this process better too if we dont have one
