I'm trying to get a Keyspan USA-49WG to work under FC7. It appears the keyspan module does have the updates for this device. As a newbie to 2.6, I assume the issue is probably that udev is not configured to load the module and set up the device files properly. Anyone using one of these?

Ok nice to be right back in the EXACT same position I was in several
years ago regarding this motherboard and installing FC. I think it was
FC3 that this first became an issue, but I was able to work around it
and install FC. So now, I tried to install FC6/7 and I yet to find a way
to get it installed.
So now it has been a year or so without being able to run Fedora/CentOS.
Please help as I really don't want to use Ubunto and especially not Suse.
Anyone have an issue installing on the Asus board?
Trying to install causes a seg fault when dealing with the hard drives
either in BIOS setting compatibility mode or SATA mode. Anaconda shows
the hard drives as "/dev/mapper" or something like that, but as you
know, they should appear as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb. All I ever see is a
single "/dev/mapper" which suggests that Anaconda sees a raid array even
after I fdisk the drives. Of coarse this also rendered the system
unusable after the seg fault resulted in a reboot.
Two days ago I asked whether people with Openoffice 2.2 can print
documents with OOwrite in landscape format?
The only reponse I got was from somone using Openoffice 2.3 who said he
could. Does the silence from everyone else mean that you can to with

We have lots of Fedora systems and it is turning out to be too much
work to keep them up to date. I have to rebuild a lot or RPMs when
the kernel is updates, and that is getting to be a hassle. If I could
do a major system update every 18 months or 2 years, it would be fine.
The unexpected bug introduced by frequent updates (much less
re-installs) have lost some of their charm for us.
So I'm going to spend some vacation time at the end of the month to
see about these longer lived Linuxes. Got any advice? I expect some
of you Fedora users have been on the other distributions.
I only want to consider RPM based ones, because I'm very familiar with
RPM and don't like DEB as much (just not as familiar, I guess). I
don't necessarily want one that is "good for newbies." I don't want
one that closes off too many options (recently switched from Gnome to
KDE because latest KDE offers much more customizability of window
manager and desktop than Gnome).
Scientific Linux is appealing because it has a cool sounding name (for
academics) and it provides OpenAFS drivers and has a long life. But I
worry that it will be harder to get RPMS for it to play MP3s or such.
gxine has been pretty good lately for my students who listen to
Brazilian radio stations. Nothing else can, it appears. So If I
switch to SL, maybe I just buy one kind of trouble.
I started to wonder if anybody had tried to update a running F6 or F5
system onto one of the other RPM based distros. It appears to me that
CentOS or SL are RPM based, and I was thinking it might be fun to just
try to run an upgrade by installing their packages. Maybe remove
fedora-release RPM and see what happens.
In the past I've resisted adopting these longer lived distros because,
well, they get outdated and frustrating because they don't
interoperate with the rapidly changing part of the Linux world. Last
time we bought RedHat Enterprise 4 I noticed that thunderbird and gcc
were lagging behind the official releases by a long ways. When we
went to update some research software, we found we had to re-build
newer gcc and update tcl/tk in order to put in the software we wanted.
One time, the upgrade of gcc required me to rebuild the whole
toolchain starting with glibc, bison and whatever else depended on
them, so having a "long lived" distribution amounted to a lot more
So maybe I don't want Scientific Linux or CentOS. Wish the
RedHat/Fedora Legacy group had not disbanded. For security updates on
a one year old distro, it was very handy.

I am configuring SAMBA as PDC on F7. All configuration works fine. the
serveur is called DSERVER, the domain is SOCINFO. I have activated the
wins support on the samba serveur. However, the master of the domain
SOCINFO is ESSTT2007. Can someone help me. The normal behaviour is to
have DSERVER as master. Any input will be helpful

I've been trying to install pine.
The pine rpm wants libldap.so.2 .
I've not been able to find an rpm that provides it.
Google has not been my friend.
yum provides came up empty.
I have source from the openldap folks,
but building from source won't tell yum about it.
Where should I get ldap?

This is a request for participation:
The KDE-SIG  is atm lacking active contributors. And we really need some
help in doing our job to provide a good KDE version in Fedora - especially
with the upcoming KDE 4.0 and the inclusion in Fedora 9.
If you don't know how you could help us here is a list (which is also in the
* Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged
for Fedora. Package it to improve the user experience.
* Reviewers: Only a few persons are doing the kde-related reviews. Help us
reviewing so that more packages could be included.
* Testers: If you love KDE use the development version or the updates-testing
repository and report bugs, bugs, bugs, request enhancements or features. We
need your feedback to improve KDE.
* Bugs: Become a BugZapper and help us with kde-related bugs.
* Documentation writers: The documentation (esp. the DesktopUserGuide) is
GNOME-centered. Help us to provide an equivalent for KDE.
* Release Notes: The few people that are working on the new KDE-Spin are quite
busy with development issues. If you want to help us in writing the release
notes for the next version of Fedora we would give you all the info you need.
* Wiki: Maintain http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KDE and keep it updated with
end user information.
* Artists: To provide a matching theme for nodoka-metacity-theme and provide
an unified desktop experience.
But this is not a complete list. If you're interested in making KDE in Fedora
better, you're more than welcome.
The list of participants in the wiki is atm not a list of active contributors.
When setting up the wiki the only demand was an interest in KDE to be listed
on this page. This list would be changed in the future to be culled down to
the list of active (or reactivated) participants. This has become necessarely
because there are only (less or more) 3 active contributors atm (plus Than
Ngo). But the list indicates that there are enough people helping with KDE.
If you are interested in joining the KDE-SIG please add your name to this
list, answer to this mail, join us in #fedora-kde at freenode or attend the
weekly KDE-SIG-Meetings (every tuesday 17:00 UTC). I will also add a topic to
the agenda of the meeting next week to introduce new contributors. 
The attendance at the SIG-Meetings is of course not required. But this way we
would know of each other. And they are also the main place of discussing the
next steps in the development (besides fedora-devel-list).
If you have any further questions please answer to this mail or write me
directly. And be sure: If your are willing to help you're welcome (regardless
of your skills). :)
The FC7 hangs very frequently. I 1st thought that it could be due to
the SB16 sound card I have. Now it doesn't seem to be so. as soon as
FC7 boots up when I open the menu it hangs. Out of 10 atleast 8 times
a hard shutdown/ reboot has to be done.
