I've just one question: I would like to buy a laptop based on AMD64
processor but I don't know if there are some problems of compatibility
of Fedora Core 1 (x86_64 version) with Acer Aspire 1502.
Does anybody know if there are some kind of issues about it, or some
kind of problems??
I'm creating a bunch of users on the server that only needs to have
samba file share access. Their Shell is /sbin/nologin.
Currently, all of them have home directories, which I do not want.
Can I put in /dev/null as their default home directory??
Our society is planning to buy a storage ide to scsi raid unit, and they
are wondering what kind of partition can be used.
The plans are to connect that unit on a semi-old (an amd duron 850
machine with 512 megs of ram) machine, configured ad-hoc (obviously with
a scsi external port) with FC 1 and to access it by the network (samba)
So the plans are to buy a promise or proware raid eide to scsi storage
unit with 14 / 15 hd slots, and 250 Gb Hard Disks.
We already have a storage unit which holds 1,5 Terabytes, it's
formatted with jfs and attached to a rack xeon server
What kind of partition is it better to hold that large amount of data?
I'm not a great expert of jfs, neither of other partitions than ntfs,
ext2, ext3 and reiserfs but they gave me this task.
I hope i explained myself well, anyway thanks
What would the equivalent of netsend be for linux?
I did google it but obviously all I came up with was the variations of

I've had this dilemma for a while now. Every time I want to install or
upgrade a new FC test/final release I do so via dual-booting it with FC1
(or whatever previous release). FC1 is split into multiple partitions
such as /boot/, /usr/, /home etc. So I always create a new empty
partition and install there. However, when the installation finishes and
I reboot, the grub.conf from the new OS install always overwrites the
old one with FC1 and other entries in it. Which means I have to boot to
a rescue environment, specify the FC1 partition when asked and then
re-install the old grub.conf with grub-install /dev/hda. This also
involves editing the old test release entry to point to the
kernel/initrd for the new test release.
So, is there any way to install a new test/final release in a dual-boot
scenario like above but *not* have the old grub.conf overwritten? If the
installer could simply add an entry for the new OS to the *old* file
that would seem really sensible to me. Any advice/tips appreciated.

I just recompiled my kernel (2.4.22-2115.nptl) and have copied the new
bzImage to the /boot directory. But I haven't the first notion of what to do
with grub.conf. Do I make a new entry (or comment out the existing one? Do I
use the same initrd image as with the last kernel, with this new one? Do I
also use the same root argument value for the kernel command for my new
kernel? I am used to LILO but have never used GRUB before. I have looked in
the 'info grub' pages, and didn't see anything that could help me. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

When a system has 2 network cards that are on the same network,
how does FC1 select which NIC to use? By that I mean, Mozilla starts up,
what causes it to use one card, say eth1 over eth0? Anyone know?
I've received several updates notices for RH9 recently regarding security
vulnerabilities updates. In particular, mod_ssl issues in apache httpd:
Updated httpd packages are now available that fix a denial of service
vulnerability in mod_ssl and include various other bug fixes.
The Apache HTTP server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server.
A memory leak in mod_ssl in the Apache HTTP Server prior to version 2.0.49
allows a remote denial of service attack against an SSL-enabled server. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CAN-2004-0113 to this issue.
Users of the Apache HTTP server should upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches that address these issues.
Since FC1 has httpd 2.0.48, how are security updates handled for Fedora?
I've tried up2date on my FC1 systems but they say they are up to date.
Any insight appreciated,

I don't see anything wrong in fedora's current artwork. What I meant was to give a different look & feel to fedora than Redhat's commercial distributions.
What do you think about shipping Supermount deamon in Fedora? Currently most of us having problem when unmounting CDs etc (Specially using eject button), But its not a problem in Distros like Mandrake which is using Supermount. Do you think it should be done by Kernel org (incorporating it in kernel)?
