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.

Fedora Quality Assurance
I am doing another FC12 install on my ASUS 701ee. This is a test
system, and I end up installing every month or so.
Of course with the small screen size, I end up pressing <cntl-N> a lot,
as I cannot see the Next button. And on some screens I just miss some
options, like getting to customize the install packages. I am always
forgetting the key combo to turn that check box on.
Is there some way to either get the ability to pan the screen around or
scroll the screen so that on Netbooks that SHOULD be a popular install
platform for Fedora, can have workable installation?
we teach about opensource at our university, and I would love to
demonstrate to my students how to do BugZapping. I have a couple of
1) There are about 50 of them. If I request each one to make a Fedora
account, it's going to be a lot of accounts and lots of potential
complications. What should I do? Can all of them work simultaneously
on one account?
2) I plan to focus on finding duplicates and triaging radeon-related
stuff, because it's quite easy to explain stuff there (KMS/UMS,
xf86-video-radeon/radeonhd, card generations etc.), but I don't want
to limit myself to that. Any other suggestions what to work on?
