i am using Fedora Beta (Rawhide) .
After powering on my laptop grub shows up, but does not automatically after
timeout (5s) start loading , but does nothing.
I have to press enter to start ...
my grub.conf :
title Fedora (188.8.131.52-39.fc10.i686)
kernel /vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-39.fc10.i686 ro
root=UUID=2a05c0a0-3982-407d-940e-0086e3844820 rhgb quiet
Thanks in advance!
I'm using Fedora 8 on my laptop. The library known as
"libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2" isn't there, which I need to run Maple 7 on
my computer. This should be a part of the compat-libstdc++-296 RPM, as
this library was originally a part of RHL 7.3 and 8.0 in libstdc++, and
available in the compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118 RPM for RHL 9. Does
anybody know why this file was removed from the compat-libstdc++-296
RPM, and what I can do to get it from the SRPM again? (I'm guessing
theoretcially it should still be part of the source code.)
I was spec'ing a new laptop tonight, and noticed it had 1 GB of 'Turbo
Memory' -- this is a new Intel specification that uses flash memory to cache
frequently used items and is only available in Windows-land with Vista. It is
not CPU cache nor RAM.
Does anyone know of any work being done to access this new technology in
Brunswick, MD, USA
I've been advised, more or less btw in an otherwise scarcely
related thread, to quit using my KVM switch (which has spare USB ports
touted by the maker especially for printserving) as a printserver.
So I plugged the printer (an HP psc 1315v) into my #1 machine;
and I've been telling Firefox 127.0.0.1:631 on each of the machines, and
trying to get it to work.
I thought I had it; and when I print at all, it's most often from
Alpine 2.0. So I've been trying to print one Alpine message from each
One at least told me the printer seemed not to be connected. The
others have adamantly done nothing.
Since all I know of printing would go in a gnat's eye, and Alpine
has several printing options (none of which I understand well), my first
thought is to try to find out if I have a pure Alpine problem, a pure
CUPS problem, or something else. Can anybody tell??

Remember I know precious little of what I am talking about.
I have a Dell Inspiron 530S desktop with an Nvidia graphics card.
The hardware is at
The machine runs F8 fully up to date and has kmod-nvidia installed.
The desktop is KDE3.5
Almost everything runs well and without any problems - but for a long
time there has been a really awful colour problem when running Real video
Two examples of the problem are on the screenshots at:
These were obtained by going to the test page at
and running the videos - it does not seem to make any difference installing
a different version of Realplayer.
I have the same setup on a different machine with different hardware and
not running kmod-nvidia and there is no problem with colour with the same
Flash video on web pages is fine and I am not aware of other colour issues but
I have been unable to fathom out how to fix this problem.
Does anyone have any hints as to what I may do, or a workaround, or
suggestion as to where I might look to fix this?
I have a cron job that runs 'find /' as root, keeps blowing up when
encountering ~/.gvfs in my home dir. Permissions are set like so:
ls -la ~/.gvfs
dr-x------ 2 tburns isys 0 2008-10-13 07:43 .
drwxr-xr-x 73 tburns root 4096 2008-10-24 11:49 ..
As owner of dir, no problem:
find /users/tburns ! -name .gvfs |grep gvfs
As root, boom:
sudo find /users/tburns ! -name .gvfs |grep gvfs
[sudo] password for tburns:
find: /users/tburns/.gvfs: Permission denied
When I create another similar directory, same permissions, root has no
problem with it. But note ***the copy has a different file size
(original size=0, copy size=4096)***:
[tburns@cod ~]$ cp -pr .gvfs .gvfscopy
[tburns@cod ~]$ ls -la .gvfscopy
dr-x------ 2 tburns isys 4096 2008-10-13 07:43 .
drwxr-xr-x 76 tburns root 4096 2008-10-29 10:56 ..
[tburns@cod ~]$ sudo find /users/tburns/.gvfscopy
.gvfs is using some secret sauce that I don't understand to prevent
root from accessing it. Is there some ACL stuff going on here?
(getfacl results are boring.) File locking? (lsof says it is not
open.) Corruption? How can it be that root is denied? I wonder what
would happen if I deleted .gvfs and recreated it manually with
I tried googling gvfs and permissions, got many many irrelevant hits.
Some hits described a similar problem, but always veer off to a
workaround for their specific situation, no general solution. Please
at least give me a hint what to do or what to google for.
My brain hurts!
reposting the question on this forum because I think the problem is with
Fedora not madwifi
I am trying to use Adhoc mode with AR5413 card (5006 chipset) with following
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Thu May 1 06:28:41 EDT

There are 2 machines running F9/madwifi and having same cards in adhoc mode.
(livna - madwifi-0.9.4-1.lvn9.i386, kmod-madwifi-0.9.4-31.lvn9.i686,
In adhoc mode, they associate with each other (same cell ID) but are not
able to further communicate. ath0 interface created on top of wifi0 does not
receive any packets but wifi0 do receive. I am not able to ping one from
another. routes are set.

I think that there no problems with ath_pci loading as can be seen -

My configuration file for interface is like -
# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
In last 3 lines, I overdid security because initially I thought the problem
is due to authentication. I don't want any security at this point.
[ Other tests -
- the same card works in managed mode and connects to my building's WLAN AP.
This makes me wonder more what I doing wrong.
- same cards with madwifi 0.9.4 works on Ubuntu in ad-hoc mode which shows
that something in Fodora is going wrong. I really like F9 and really don't
want to switch to ubuntu. ]
Any help is really appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Firefox 3 was hanging on certain websites. I downgraded to Fedora 2.0.17
. Now when I click on a link in a Thunderbird email I get a box with the
Error showing url: There was an error launching the default action
command associated with this location.
Can anyone tell me how/where to fix the 'default action command'?
I can't run cpuspeed on my wife's notebook:it's a Acer Aspire 3630 and
it use a Intel Celeron CPU.
FC8 and kernel 22.214.171.124-49.fc8.
I even can't load the acpi_cpufreq module, this is the error message:

And BTW, what is the correct value I have to in the file
/etc/sysconfig/cpuspeed in the line DRIVER ?
