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?

Mouse goes crazy
by Jonathan Villa
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.

F24 beta virt-install with kickstart fails
by Jos Vos
Did anyone succeed in virt-install'ing F24 beta using kickstart
(on CentOS 6 host, if that matters)?
I see lots of warnings (dracut-initqueue), then the console goes
into a slowly filling bar at the bottom (plymouthd!?), then I see
lots of "No space left on device" errors, then a dracut emergency
shell is started.
The generated rdsosreport.txt contains 34284 lines...
FWIW, when *not* using kickstart I can install F24 beta on the
same system with virt-install fine.

Introduction: Raymond Chung
by Yongsub Chung
First of all,
Thank you for making Fedora Linux great. And, I am sure the QA team's
contribution is essential to keep Fedora in high quality distribution.
My name is Raymond Chung, and I have been in the industry around 15 years,
but I still feel that I don't know enough. I used Linux since I was in
college. I started with RedHat 5.5. I used it through Fedora 3, and
switched to Gentoo, and FreeBSD, and, Ubuntu, and settled back to Fedora
since Fedora 17, (I guess).
My best interest is Kernel testing. Whenever I run into a kernel issue,
such as driver, or performance, I couldn't solve efficiently, or basically
give up. I want to know more about kernel, and recently joining QA team
might be a good way to get more experience with kernel.
Outside of working with computer, I play music. I love rock music, but
jazz and classical are my interests, too.
Feel free to reach me.
I am glad to be part of QA team.

Shifting fedora QA from fedorahosted to pagure
by Kanika Murarka
Sumantro and me were working upon the possibility of shifting QA
tickets to some other platform like pagure. Thanks Justin(jflory7) for
Following are the points:-
1. Shifting to Pagure will be easy and efficient.
2. Wiki -----> overview
2. In the Pagure repo, priorities can be set for tickets based on
ranking, e.g. 10=urgent,20=high,30=normal, etc.(we can have custom
3. Milestones----> Pagure milestones(has been improved)
*All the ticket with the tag roadmap will show up on the roadmap page.
*For each milestones defined in the settings of the project, the
roadmap will group tickets with the corresponding tag.
*Tickets with the tag roadmap that are not associated with any of the
milestones defined in the settings are group in an unplanned section.
5. All of the fields in both ticket type and ticket component are
likely best implemented in tags for tickets. That would allow for the
categorization and grouping of the tickets based on their keywords.
6. The blocked by and blocking feature is available in Pagure as metadata.
7. All other things can be easily implemented using tags.
8. As discussed in the last meeting, https://pagure.io/pagure-importer
can be used to import tickets.
I am putting this as a mail because, I wont be able to attend the meeting today.
Thanks and Regards

Release validation events
by Adam Williamson
If anyone was really paying attention, you might wonder why there
hasn't been a new Rawhide release validation test event recently, when
according to the rules there should have been one - it's been more than
three days since the last event, and anaconda has had a new version
Well, there were a couple of bugs in the event creation bot. I've just
fixed those up and also moved the bot into Fedora infrastructure (up
till now it's been running on my personal web server). I'm hoping we'll
get an event for the next successful Rawhide compose; if not, it means
there's still some kind of bug in the bot, so I'll keep an eye on it.
:) Thanks folks!
