Adam Williamson and Ben Skeggs have lined up an exciting Fedora Test Day
topic. This Thursday, March 26 will focus on testing the new nouveau
graphics driver. If the Intel graphics test day  was any indication,
this will be a busy event.
As outlined in the NouveauAsDefault feature page , the nouveau driver
will be replacing the previous 'nv' driver for nVidia chipsets. There
are several notable improvements including RANDR 1.2 support and
accelerated XRENDER support. To determine if you have the required
hardware, run the following command:
# /sbin/lspci -d 10de: | grep -iq VGA && echo "Join Nouveau Fedora Test Day"
So come join #fedora-qa this Thursday, March 26, 2009 to share your
Nouveau graphics test results. A Fedora live image will be available to
aid testing. Stay tuned for more details are available at

The Fedora I18n Project is planning a bug day this Thursday (2nd April).
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/I18N/Bugs has links to various lists of i18n related bugs.
The main focus will be triaging rawhide bugs related to i18n but also checking on older i18n bugs to see if they are still present in F10 and/or F11 Beta.
Join us on #fedora-i18n during the day to help out, ask questions, and for discussion i18n issues.
Fedora I18n Team
I found that there is presto repo for Fedora Rawhide i386.
(https://fedorahosted.org/presto/) I could not find presto repo for
Fedora Rawhide 86_64.
How can I set the baseurl for presto repo for Fedora Rawhide 86_64?
Dear fellow testers,
It has been a while and I have been having troubles editing my crontab.
Even root cannot access it :(
This is telling me something. I wonder what I need to do to get this fixed.
[root@riohigh ~]# crontab -l
Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info
You (root) are not allowed to access to (crontab) because of pam configuration.
[root@riohigh ~]# exit
[olivares@riohigh ~]$ /etc/pam.d/system-auth
bash: /etc/pam.d/system-auth: Permission denied
[olivares@riohigh ~]$ su -

Thanks for any help/advice/suggestions which are offered to see if this problem goes away.
These are rough times for anaconda, first one failure, then another and
another -- it's driving me bonkers.
The latest failure is anaconda failing silently (no traceback) on an LV
create of the swap filesystem in a "pure vanilla" install.
No traceback means no bug report to make.
For a while (I can't remember since when, but F9 at least), there's been
a message during boot:
nf_conntrack version 0.5.0 (4096 buckets, 16384 max)
CONFIG_NF_CT_ACCT is deprecated and will be removed soon. Please use
nf_conntrack.acct=1 kernel paramater, acct=1 nf_conntrack module option
or sysctl net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_acct=1 to enable it.
I haven't seen any other postings on it, but does this seem like the
kind of thing to resolve before F11 final?
Has anyone worked with visually impaired individuals and adaptive solutions with Fedora? I want to learn this and am near total blindness not sure what all is out there in making this OS acessable or how and if the windows bassed software will work within this enviroment. Any insite, ideas or assistance would be most helpful.
