Ran in to a fascinating problem,
I need a custome compiled kernel that is static.. (i.e. all drivers built into the kernel... not modular) for a server system that is being built.
I have generated 2 kernels:
1 with module loading enabled.
1 with module loading disabled.
For the server system the kernel will be deployed on module loading must be disabled.
If I try to boot the kernel with module loading disabled and the boot process halts with failure to open initial console. But, I boot the kernel with module loading enabled, and the boot proceeds fine everything functions.
The problem may be in the way udev is setup in the fedora core 3 initialization.
1) Has anyone tried turning module loading off and booted
successfully? If so I would appreciate knowing how you
solved the boot problem I have run into.
2) Does anyone have a fix or suggestions of a fix for the
sysinit scripts for the system.
Thanks for any suggestions...

Subject: Webmin / Usermin and port blocking
Webmin and Usermin are accessed remotely through ports 10000 and 20000
respectively - as in http://www.myserver.net:20000
I work in a company that blocks port 20000 and all other non-essential
outgoing port requests. Are there any alternative ways of accessing a
port-bound service like this to get around secure large company sites
that block direct port connections?
I guess what I'm asking is about ways to access Usermin as a straight
HTTP:// connection (ie http://www.myserver.net/usermin) rather than port
20000 by making changes on my server.
Thanks in advance,

I've made the switch to linux (FC3) as my OS and I'm using crossover
office for a couple required windows only apps, like Lotus Notes.
So I'm trying to adjust to this new environment. One of the things I was
accustomed to on my old windows system was mapping to my other machines,
getting to files, etc. The "other" machines are a mix of Windows and
Linux, but mostly Linux.
For the windows machines I'll continue to map shares using samba. The
problem is my linux machines. On windows I use to map them using Samba,
but now that I'm running linux, I was thinking NFS is probably the
better way to go. Right? Wrong? Of course I can't run mount unless I'm
root and then I don't have rights as my login to the data anyway. Is
there any way I can seamless mount these drives and still have rights to
them with my login?
Should I just use samba to map these as well?
Also, my old windows drive is also mounted as read only using an NTFS
module. Again, it's mounted as root and works, but when I'm logged in as
me I can view anything. I'd like to view/copy my old windows files
logged in as myself.
How are others handling these scenerios?

I'm desperately trying to avoid a flame war, but I am very curious about
a couple of things:
1. What kind of SLA will Microsoft offer to a small business or an
2. For the case above, where the poster spoke to a kernel developer,
what kind of response was promised in the SLA and how much did it cost?
For the record, I use Windows, because a specific toolchain I need isn't
going to be ported to Linux. But where I can (which is nearly
everywhere else), I use Fedora, in fact, I do most of my email, "Office"
work, and presentations using Linux. I've found Microsoft support to be
expensive and antagonistic to customers. A recent experience bears this
I have an issue working for a friend now where MS support is needed. My
friend entered "DLL Purgatory" because of a defect in a version of
MSVCRT.DLL, used by just about everything on the system. The Knowledge
Base article which discloses the defect announces a hotfix for the
problem. But to get the hotfix, one must place a toll call to Microsoft
and pay the charge for a service call to obtain the fix.
The Microsoft technician has the discretion to decide whether to charge
you Microsoft's fee for the consultation, but in any event, you pay for
the phone call. So no matter what you do, it will cost you money if
you want your system to work. My friend didn't do anything except
install Service Pack 2, and her system went south. Now her system is
degraded and it will cost her to recover it.
For those who are unhappy with the support one gets from the Linux
community for free, I must ask: Is this kind of support worth paying
for? I am grateful for the support of this community. You all do great

I'm not an expert, but I do know this one.
You need to check with the repository.
An example would be that downloads from Fedora.US can not be mixed with FreshRPMs. This information is posted on their websites, along with the repositories that they can be mixed with. These 2 repositories place files required files in different directories.
