So the ammount of RAM my system has doesnt matter? :D I thought it would
take at least 128 megs to run right...
Yes, of course. You should make a partion for XP (may be /dev/hda1), another
for Fedora (/dev/hda2) and so.
If you have XP installed, and you don't want to delete it try to use
Magic to reduze the size of NTFS filesystem.
If you make a clean install, install XP first... it would make your life
easiest if you do it by this way
(sorry for my English!!!!)

I know this is dumb but, could I possible have this OS and XP on my system
by repartitioning my hard drive? I dont want VMware because my computer is a
piece of crap by standards of technology now but I love it...

You need to run kmix. There doesn't seem to be menu entry for it. You
can add one manually or click the application menu and "Run Command",
then type kmix. Kmix is part of the kdemultimedia package.
I have a nice, well-running, well behaved Fedora installation. I'm
thinking of buying Windows because I need to learn ASP.NET and Mono, for
all that it does well, has some shortcomings. Plus there's no good
editor for ASP.NET. Anyway, that's the "why would you want to do this"
part. As far as how I would do it, I have a second hard drive. I think I
can just install the second hard drive with Windows and then point Grub
at that drive as a possible boot point. Is that true? Or will Windows
want to erase the MBR of HDA and thus this won't be possible at all
unless I swap the places of the hard drives and reinstall GRUB onto the
Either way, I'd like to do this (assuming I even choose to do it) in a
fashion that doesn't ruin my Linux install.
I just installed enlightenment on a development version of Fedora and it
It loaded nautilus alright. The gnome-panel and gnome-terminal ran well.
I couldn't figure out how to kill nautilus gracefully so to logout.
KDE menus, Gnome menus were all available. The sliding panels were hard
to get used to though.
I noticed over the past couple days I've been getting logs pertaining
to failed module loading. Specifically sound-slot-1 and sound-service-1-0.
Now I have only 1 sound card and the modules for it are being correctly
loaded, but now something is trying to load these for some strange reason.
I've suppressed the messages using the alias "off" option, but I'm
wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to why these second card modules
are trying to be loaded?
I was wondering if this temp reading was inline with what it was suppose
to be or how to find out? My system is a P3 750 from Gateway.

I'm trying to rebuild the rpm for Amanda (Advanced Maryland Automatic
Network Disk Archiver) , but I'm having some issues.. During build , it
tries to find $BUILDDIR/tape-src/.libs , but this .libs directory doesnt
exist.. I created it myself and the build proceded .. However now I get
the following error:
+ pushd tape-src/.libs
+ install -m 755 amtapetype /var/tmp/amanda-2.4.4p1-root//usr/sbin
install: cannot stat `amtapetype': No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.50394 (%install)
Probably this is related to the .libs dir.. Any ideas on how can I fix
this? I need to rebuild these rpms , so I can use amanda on my backup
server (the standard rpm has one problem.. it runs as "amanda" user ...
we already have a real user whose login is amanda , so we have to
recompile amanda to run as the user "backup"...)
