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.

The f10 builds seem to work fine for me (finding the plugins), so perhaps
this is rawhide-specific?
To be clear, digikam's Settings -> configure digikam -> Kipi Plugins is

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.

Should I ask on development channel?

I did an i386 upgrade from F11 -> F12 on two different systems using the install
DVD. They both use gnome and kde desktops. After the upgrade, I try to log in
using kde and I get the error: "kstartupconfig4 does not exist or fails. The
error code is 127. Check your installation". After some searching, I found
this same error was present in F10->F11 upgrade. It seems during the upgrade,
libssl.so.8 and libcrypto.so.8 links are removed and kstartupconfig4 can no
longer start. In /usr/lib I did "ln -s libssl.so libssl.so.8" and "ln -s
libcrypto.so libcrypto.so.8". This then allowed kstartupconfig4 to run and kde
worked again. I did not see any mention of this problem on the rawhide list
during beta & RC testing, so I guess nobody did this type of upgrade. Hope this
I had interesting discussions with Andy Lindeberg and jlaska today about
the semantics of our current Bugzilla - and particularly triage -
We were thinking about the NEW / ASSIGNED dichotomy, and Andy and I came
to the conclusion that it doesn't really make a lot of sense.
Right now, Bugzappers uses it one way, Andy uses it another for
anaconda. In the Bugzappers process, ASSIGNED just means, really,
Triaged: you set a bug to ASSIGNED once the triage process is complete.
For Anaconda, Andy sets bugs to ASSIGNED once they're assigned to the
correct anaconda maintainer (whether or not the rest of triage is yet
Neither case is really terribly problematic, but they also don't make a
whole lot of sense, really. Having 'triage completed' as a status is a
bit arguable; it's not quite in the flow of the statuses, as a bug could
be at a point 'beyond' ASSIGNED but not yet have been triaged, for
instance. And it's also just semantically wrong - the word 'assigned'
does not mean 'triaged'.
In the anaconda case, we just thought about it and decided the use of
ASSIGNED isn't really _achieving_ anything: you can tell whether the
bug's been assigned or not just by looking at who it's assigned to.
We sort of came to the conclusion that it'd probably make the most sense
to have a 'Triaged' keyword that's used to affirm that a bug's been
triaged (in fact there already is one, but it's not officially used in
our current process), and abandon the distinction between NEW and
ASSIGNED. Ideally, the ASSIGNED state would just be removed, but we
could keep it and just note in our workflow / policy that it's not
really used to mean anything in particular.
This could, I think, be implemented quite quickly if desired; I think we
could rig something up to set all bugs in ASSIGNED state (except
anaconda ones) to have the 'Triaged' keyword, that shouldn't be

Whether you call it a post-mortem, retrospective or lessons learned ...
the end result is the same. I'd like to collect thoughts on how
good/bad of a job the QA group did in planning and testing the Fedora 12
release. In keeping with the release-wide retrospective from Fedora 11
, feel free to share any wishlist items as well.

highlights during an upcoming QA team meeting. The goal will be to
prioritize the pain points and use as a basis for defining objectives
for Fedora 13.
Thanks for your feedback!
