Most of the Fedora RPMS are provided as i386. These can easily be
rpmbuild --target i686 --rebuild package.src.rpm
a. Is it worth it? In other words, is there really a performance gain in
packages like - say - KDE?
b. Assuming that I installed the RPM sources and built from the spec
file, as long as I am at it, could I also benefit by changing some of
CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
I never used FC1 so I dont know if this is something that started in
FC1 or not. However, I used to use my win-key for many many shortcuts
in RH9. Like win+<arrow> would move my virtual desktops, win-m for
mail, that sort of thing. It was a good way to use shortcuts that
wouldnt interfear with other applications. KDE doesnt allow me to do
this anymore. I click the 'custom shortcut' hit the winkey, it shows
win+ but then when I hit the next key win+m, it goes back like it
acknowledged it however, its only the m key, not win+m.
Does anyone know what could cause this? I used to have a custom
keymap back in 5.2 to get this to work, do you think this could help
THanks in advance,
Help please FC2 boots from the Mashita DVD multi drive but after I specify
language and keyboard type the system reads from the DVD drive then says
the FC2 disk 1 isn't present.
I have burned 3 of them, and it has been suggested that the installation
program lacks a driver for the mashita.
Can anyone tell me an alternative method to install FC2?
Thanks for any help.

I have a Fedora 1 box running Apache 2.0.50.
I have installed it using Fedora RPMs.
A friend of mine has his homepage on my server and he have a PHP guestbook.
The PHP file is called guestbook.php and when users submit something in his
guestbook the php script writes that to a file called guestbook.txt.
This work just fine but he is worried by the permissions on the file.
The guestbook.txt file have the following permissions:
Owner is the username of my friend and the groupowner is also my friend.
He have heard someplace that having such a file world writeable is a
He tells me that the file should not be writeable for everyone but it has to
be or the php script fails I tell him...
But he insists that it's possible to use this php script and write to the
txt file without having all other users write permission.
He says that it's a way of just giving the script permission to write to the
txt file and that's a good idea because now everyone can do whatever thety
want to the txt file...
The only problem is that he doesn't remember how this was done and don't
How is this done by the Pro's?
Are you sure that you did not install firewall on both server and client????

Please can some one assist me here,
There is a spook in my FC1 PC config,
The NFS firstly would not start,
Now I get it started and no-one has permission to access the fileshare.
[root@preload root]# mount preload:/fc1 test/
mount: preload:/fc1 failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
[root@preload root]#ls -la /
drwxr-xr-x 6 rpcuser rpcuser 4096 Aug 31 05:01 fc1
What should the perms be here I had them as root and changed them,
I have also tried these lines in /etc/exports
Aug 31 12:53:52 preload rpc.mountd: refused mount request from
preload.teq.pinteq for /fc1 (/): no export entry
[root@preload root]# exportfs
Well I am very lost ?

yum on a dial up with 2 hour limit
this limits to about 20mb
i know its possible to download the rpm with something like gftp or wget and put them in the right folder, but this is a bit of a hassle.
has anyone tried any yum GUIs, i see one from cobind, any experiences?
Is it possible to remotely log someone off? Cleanly? I have never
tried, but what I'd like to have is the ability to log off of GNOME a
user at my house via SSH.

Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang) Kernel: 2.6.8-1.521 GNU/Linux

I am trying to install FC2 on a Dell Dimension 8300, with a Seagate Model ST3120026AS SATA 120Gb hard drive. The controller is an Intel 82801ED Ultra ATA Storage Controller. I have repartioned the drive with Partition Magic and formatted the last 20Gb as ext2. There are no errors on either partition and the machine boots into XP normally. Upon starting the installation with the known geometry,
boot: linux hda=14589,255,63
I get the following error message:
hda: IRQ probe failed
hda: no response
hda:non-IDE drive, CHS=14589,255,63
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
hda Invalid Geometry: 255 Physical heads?
ide-default: hda: Failed to register the driver with ide.c
Kernel panic: ide: default attach failed.
The machine is of course locked up.
