I have a running F9 installation where I want to move some free space
from the NTFS partition to Fedora's.
Usually I don't even have an NTFS partition to get into this problem,
and if so I wipe the Linux partitions away, resize the NTFS partition
and reinstall Fedora/RHEL. Now with F9 doing a resize upon
installation this is even easier.
But wiping the Fedora partition isn't an option either in this
case. So how does one proceed? Which tools are the best for
o shrinking the inactive NTFS partition (fs & partition!) and
o enlarging the online ext3 fs & partition?
Or is this not feasable with ext3 online? Maybe only from a rescue
I googled, but all I found were quite old references not including the
shinny new F9 support for stuff like this. And the docu for anaconda
is only for during installs, but I need to keep the old Linux
partition (or maybe anaconda would even allow that?)
Possibly also a good topic for the Fedora FAQ.

When I run this command:
echo 2008:04:23 | sed 's/://'
The result is
I expect to have this :
What is wrong with my very simple regexp ':' why all occurence of the
char ':' are not deleted ?
its make me crazy, can someone help me ?
Beginning with F9, every time I plug in my Creative Zen Vision:M via USB
into my PC a dialog box opens up after a minute or two. The dialog box
offers several options, including a default connection to Rhythmbox, to
open in a Gnome file folder window, do nothing or unmount.
(Btw, the Creative Zen Vision:M is a PMP, and a very good iPod
competitor). If I choose "unmount" I can then open Gnomad2, the app with
which I prefer interfacing with the PMP. N.B. Gnomad2 now recognizes
directories on the Zen.
Is there some reference to the the way this dialog box can be configured?
Oh it was SELinux ! I disabled it and the problem was solved.

I have installed F9 and configured network as wired but network manager applet says the network connection has been disconnected , when I look at System-Admin-Network the eth0 is active. I think I need some help

I installed the PPTP VPN on a client to connect via pptpvpn to a server
which is running it. I used pptpconfig to config the network. When I
connect, the VPN runs fine. I looked in pptpconfig and saw it does a
/usr/sbin/pppd call myserver logfd 1 updetach persist
(I used "myserver" in this mail instead of the actual name). So I made a file
/etc/init.d/pptpvpn where under start) I do the above (along with some checking,
etc). This also works nicely, when I but (after chkconfig on) the VPN comes
up and I can connect.
Problem is, if somehow the pptp process dies, if it is in /etc/init.d it won't start up
automatically again (which I need), so instead I transfered to /etc/inittab:
vp:35:respawn:/usr/sbin/pppd call myserver logfd 1 updetach persist
A "kill -1 1" or reboot will start this, but a ps just shows two processes with that
but I can't ping. A few minutes later it shows two processes again but with new
PIDs. Then a few minutes later two new processes with the same parameters
(there are only 2 at a time). I can't ping anything on the VPN either (and I do
add the routes in ip-up.local so from the /etc/rc5.d script it starts up the route).
Anyway how can I either modify my script in /etc/init.d (linked to /etc/rc*.d) to respawn
in the (unlikely but possible) case the process dies, or modify /etc/inittab to work
I successfully installed some days ago f9 x86_64 this way on a laptop:
- on F9 x86 server I have f9_x86_64.iso file and mount it as a loop
device; then I export the mounted path via nfs
- on laptop I install f9_x86_64 via nfs.
Note that in my case I used an usb key as boot device for the laptop.
For doing that I had to use the diskboot.img from f8 and then
overwrite kernel and initrd with what provided in boot.iso of f9.
I also had to delete the splash image because the new files didn't fit
on the size of the f8 media.
But the installation went fine.
I don't know if you can boot from usb, though....

It depends on the brand of your drives: NEC/OPTIARC can be flashed natively
thanks to binflash (it can use both exe and bin files).
In other cases, you have to use something like a "Windows live cd" (I don't
remember the link, but you need a copy of the XP install CD anyway) or a
good old DOS floppy boot disk.

I just installed FC8 x86_64 on a Dell Precision T5400. I then
installed nmap. I ran nmap. SELinux signalled that something was
wrong. I looked in the log, then I ran sealert -l 47<blah-blah-blah>
and it advises me to "try to restore the default system file context
for <Unknown>, restorecon -v <Unknown>".
a) What should I do? I am guessing
# touch /.autorelabel
# shutdown -r now
b) is this a bug?
I googled (selinux "restorecon -v unknown" bugzilla fedora). Lots of
hits, no general solution I could find. Many with similar problems
eventually figure out which file actually is causing selinux
unhappiness, but I have no clue how they figured it out. Anyone spare
side note - after that I ran yum -y update, the screen has gone black
and does not respond to anything, including cntl-alt-del or
cntl-alt-backspace. No fair!
I am having problems with the newest update of tcl. It is causing
a problem with aMSN (which by the way, completely blew up because of
this upgrade). I've tried to uninstall this version of tcl and
reinstall the older version but every time I do this, it continues to be
updated to the newest version, which aMSN cannot use. My question is
this: How do I roll back to the previous version (tcl-1:8.5.1-4.fc9)
without it automatically being updated to the newest one
(tcl-1:8.5.2-1.fc9)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
