I'm attempting an upgrade to F7 from FC6.
I have updated the yum repo files to refer to the new repositories, but
issuing the following command produces the output shown:
# yum update yum
Loading "allowdowngrade" plugin
Loading "kmdl" plugin
Loading "downloadonly" plugin
Setting up repositories

Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 is needed by package
Error: Unable to satisfy dependencies
Error: Package gnome-menus needs python-abi = 2.4, this is not available.
Error: Package subversion needs python(abi) = 2.4, this is not available.
Error: Package gnome-menus needs python(abi) = 2.4, this is not available.
Error: Package authconfig needs python(abi) = 2.4, this is not available.
Error: Package rpm-libs needs rpm = 220.127.116.11-2.fc6, this is not available.
As I understand it, F7 has python 2.5. Is there any particular reason
why these listed packages aren't being upgraded along with python?
Other things I've done: I've disabled the updates repository and that
makes things worse (more unavailable packages).
What are my options for solving this?
At first, I thought I had no sound at all but If I turn the volume all the way up, I can hear muffled noises.
I found these lines in the messages file:
Nov 29 21:16:50 localhost pulseaudio: alsa-util.c: Device hw:1 doesn't support 44100 Hz, changed to 48000 Hz.
Nov 29 21:16:50 localhost pulseaudio: alsa-util.c: Cannot find mixer control "Master".
Nov 29 21:16:50 localhost pulseaudio: alsa-util.c: Cannot find mixer control "Capture".
lspci shows this:
# lspci | grep udio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)
01:0a.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 03)
PulseAudio Volume Control shows 2 output devices at 100% volume.
Anybody have any suggestions on how to fix this?
PS I tried a suggestion I have seen on this list of deleting the alsa-pulsaudio-plugin package but nothing changed.
Still not working for me with the 2.6.22 kernel. I believe it's
18.104.22.168-33.fc7 and the similar latest in fc6.
It works with the 2.6.2 kernels... just looking for feedback, the
sendors command works after rerunning sensors-find.

I have a PXE boot setup trying to install FC7. After the PXE boot and
the vmlinuz and initrd.img are loaded, I am attempting to load FC7 via
NFS from kickstart. My kickstart file is loaded but when the server
attempts to acquire an IP address via DHCP before NFS mounted the drive,
it times out after multiple DHCP requests. Using ethereal, it appears
the DHCP server is responding correctly with the same IP address the PXE
server gave previously. For some currently unknown reason, the DHCP
response is ignored. Any ideas on why this would happen?

It gets to the bit about skipping the media test (it already passed that
several times previously on this dvd)
then I get a blue screen with the prompts across the bottom, and a
"Welcome to Fedora for 386"
across the top, and it sits there. And it does this regardless of the mode I
choose to do the install/upgrade.

I would like to know if there is any way to schedule a timed wakeup from
sleep/suspend mode, like the "Wake the computer to run this job" option
in the Windows XP Scheduled Tasks. I'm using my desktop as a Personal
Video Recorder, and this works very well in Windows XP. Since I'm
running dual-boot with Fedora 7, I was thinking that I might try to
figure out how to do the same thing under Fedora. Is it even possible?
I'm running Fedora 7 on a Sony Vaio laptop (VGN-SZ430N/B)
I have it set to start after 1minute. I also have Kpowersave to start the
screensaver if I close the lid.
I can right click on the desktop, choose 'lock session' and the screensaver
will start. Also if I close the laptop lid the screensaver will start however
if I leave the machine Idle for several minutes the screensaver never starts.
Thanks in advance for any help...
I want to configure sudo access for some users on my system. I am currently
using FC7 on my system. What they require (I mean users) is to do all the
things except they cannot su/su- to become anyother user or root user, they
should not be able to change anybody's password or atleast root's password,
cannot modify /etc/sudoers and etc/pam.d/su files . I have a script which
can extract all commands issued with "sudo" but if these users become root
then I won't be able to know who has done what.
I have already restricted su/su - access by editing /etc/pam.d/su and
uncommenting the below line:
# Uncomment the following line to require a user to be in the "wheel" group.
auth required pam_wheel.so use_uid
Authentication on my system is done through LDAP but also Use MD5, Use
Shadow and Local Authorization is sufficient options are enabled so that
local user for ex myself can login without authenticating to LDAP. Users for
which i want to configure sudo access will all be authenticated through
Currently I have added these 2 lines in /etc/sudoers (I used visudo command
to edit this file)
test ALL=(ALL) ALL, !/usr/bin/su
test2 ALL=(ALL) ALL, !/usr/bin/su
Both test and test2 are able to become root when they use "sudo su - " but
they are not able to become root user when they issue "su -". How do I
restrict these users not to become root or any other user through sudo su -
and also these users should not able to change their or other users
passwords on this system.
Thanks & Regards
