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 just did:-
yum install gallery2
It installed with no errors.
The trouble is I now have no clue as to what to do next. What do I
have to do next, I can't see any *obvious* pages to browse to get it
Yes, I do have apache installed and running, and PHP, and mySql.
so far the installation of FC6 has gone relatively smoothly albeit some
additional learning and bumps due to the 64 bit architecture of this
The mother board is an Intel DG965RYCK which uses Intel's 965 express
chipset. Based upon what I've been able to find on the web, Intel has
released the drivers for this chipset to OSS, although there have been
issues as to what Intel actually released and how complete they might be.
Regardless I unable to run mplayer (or Realplayer) for that matter
without the display first freezing then going black followed by garbage
along the bottom of the screen. A Control-Alt-Backspace does not stop X
from running. The only way to recover the machine from this point is to
reboot the system. I am still able to connect from a remote system, its
just the display that has become unstable.
lspci -v shows the following for the graphics adapter

suggestions would be appreciated.
Was gdmsetup removed from Fedora 9? I'm trying to figure out how to

this is somehow off-topic, but hopefully someone here has been through
I just bought a shiny new Core 2 Duo machine (Intel DG33BU mobo), with
a nice 250G SATA disk. Fedora 7 installation went surprisingly well
(and fast), only problem was that onboard NIC was not recognized, but
upgrading the kernel offline fixed this. Everything is amazingly fast
BUT... I need this machine to dual-boot to Windows XP (still addicted
to some Windows-only games =( ). XP setup CD hangs just after showing
"examining hardware configuration" or something like that. It doesn't
really hangs, it just switches to a blank screen and sits there
forever (I already left it there for more than 15min to no avail).
Keyboard is responsive and HD led stays on. CTRL+ALT+DEL reboots as
I talked to IT guys at work and they told me they've been through this
already lots of times, it seems XP is unable to properly recognize the
disk when only Linux is installed on it (?!?), and only solution would
be to reformat the whole thing and install XP first.
Is that true?

GRUB is installed on MBR. All remaining space is sitting there,
waiting for XP to take over... =/
Anyone knows of a workaround? Should I try to create an additional
partition on the empty space and format it as VFAT hoping this would
make Windoze less stupid? Or am I doomed to remove all partitions and
start from scratch, starting with XP?
I've just installed F9 in my Vmware workstation 6 but I couldn't
change my defualt 800x600 resolution to 1024x768. Is VMware causing this
problem? Any Idea.

I noticed my f9 system was slow and checked CPU usage with top.
top showed a process called kerneloops sucking 98% of the CPU.
Is this normal? If not, what is one supposed to do to provide debugging
this guide is the best guide for Fedora 9!
How to setup MP3 and Video codecs, ATI and Nvidia drivers,
CompizFusion, etc... you need it they got it :)
Probably most of your question about Fedora 9 are answered there and
the solutions are simple.
There are some errors still left from Fedora 8 guide, so please create
wiki account and help clean it out and if you have some new tips &
tricks please add them.
For example the date for release of Fedora 9 was still left from Fedora 8 :)
And this is the latest one I'm correcting right now:
To see what Fedora 8 will look like check out the tour!!! (but the

When a PDF page is displayed via the Acroread plugin in Firefox, the
(sub) window containing the displayed PDF info never gets focus. This
makes it impossible, among other things, to search the PDF using the
Acroread search function. If I save the PDF to a file and then display
it using acroread, the window gets focus in the normal way and search
What is going on? How can this be fixed?
