My father has a dual-boot Vista/Fedora 11 machine, with Grub on the MBR.
He recently enabled recommended updates in Vista, and it wanted him to
install SP2, but he was unable to. At Stage 3, after rebooting, it got
to 100% but then failed and reverted the changes. The associated error
number was 80004005. We found that the source of the problem was that
the active partition was the Fedora /boot partition, not the Windows
one. By using Vista's Disk Management tool to make the Vista partition
active again, the problem was solved. Grub doesn't seem to care which
partition is active (at least if it's on the MBR). Looking at old saved
fdisk output from 2 of my machines, I suspect that F11 changed the
active partition, and that in F10 and earlier, the Windows partition was
active. Is this new behavior in the F11 installer (to change the active
partition, even though Grub doesn't care), and if so, is it deliberate?
given the first release of android 2.0, has anyone out there
successfully installed that on a 64-bit fedora? specifically, fedora
11 or (hopefully equivalently) fedora 12 beta.
i'm just about to give it a shot, but it would be nice to know that
someone else has already done it and identified any glitches hidden in
the install instructions:
based on a quick perusal, it would seem that open jdk is now
compatible (whereas it didn't used to be), and one still has to
install the minimal packages for 32-bit compatibility. in any event,
if someone else has already done this, that would be awesome.

Has anyone had a total failure to run kmod-nvidia with an 8300 GS graphics
card in f11?
used to run with the kmod-nvidia-PAE installed from rpmfusion just fine in
f10 with no issues at all.
When I installed (clean) the new f11 system on this machine (in fact two
machines with this card both have identical issues), the install was fine, I
then yum updated to the latest kernel and, as per my normal upgrade
procedure, then yum installed kmod-nvidia-PAE from rpmfusion. This process
worked without issue on two other machines which have nvidia graphics cards
(but not the 8300 card). On rebooting, the boot began as normal (text
kms/plymouth with the blue/white running line on the bottom of the screen),
but as soon as x should start - it didn't. There was a blank screen with a
flashing cursor at top right only. I removed the kmod-nvidia package, and
xorg.conf and ran without it until yesterday.
After updating the system to the new kernel yesterday I booted to the new
kernel 188.8.131.52-90.fc11.i686.PAE - which was fine and tried yum install
kmod-nvidia-PAE (which is the correct version of kmod-nvidia for this card
and kernel I believe) and rebooted - same as the original problem - after
the plymouth non-graphical boot, blank screen with flashing cursor - except
that some seconds later a couple of lines of text appeared on the screen
related to selinux audit. I removed kmod-mvidia and am running without it
again - this morning in the syslog there are lines:
audit(1256631766.417:29202): auid=4294967295 ses=4294967295
subj=system_u:system_r:readahead_t:s0 op=remove rule key=(null) list=2 res=1
However I am not sure this is directly related to the kmod-nvidia-PAE or
Anyway I wonder if anyone else has had a problem with this card and an
inability to use kmod-nvidia? If so is there a known workaround?
Thanks for any replies.

when trying to copy a certain file, i get the message:
cp: reading 'file' : Input/output error
i took the volume it was on offline, & did a forced

smartctl -H tells me the drive 'passes' .
i can change the name with mv, no problem there.
are there any other (non-destructive) steps i can take?

Is there a HOWTO around on how to use an Epson perfection 2480 USB
scanner on Fedora 11 x86_64 ?
So far sane-find-scanner (run as root) returns two devices:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x146a [Knobloch-GmbH],
product=0x0003 [fischertechnik Robo RF Data Link (Knobloch GmbH)])
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON],
product=0x0121 [EPSON Scanner])
I hope that the first one does not confuse the system. It is *not* a scanner.
Then scanimage -L returns:
device `snapscan:libusb:001:002' is a EPSON EPSON Scanner flatbed scanner
And when I try something like:
scanimage -d 'snapscan:libusb:001:002'
[snapscan] Cannot open firmware file /usr/share/sane/snapscan/your-firmwarefile.bin.
[snapscan] Edit the firmware file entry in snapscan.conf.
scanimage: open of device snapscan:libusb:001:002 failed: Invalid argument
I have no idea what this is about.
Any help welcomed.
It looks like environment variables set in .bash_profile are visible
to applications started in gnome but not via a shell. For example
evolution knows when I modify LC_COLLATE.
But how? Here's the invocation chain from login down to evolution -- no

I installed Fedora 11 on a DiskOnKey. I booted from this DiskONKey
successfully on the machine
on which I made the installation. However, when I tried on two
different machines, it failed, and it reached the
grub command line. On a third machine it reached a line containing the
word GRUB only.
I wonder - is there a way to install Fedora 11 on a DiskOnKey so that
it will boot from any machine (which is capable of booting from USB )?
Note: I had made my trials on motherboards after verifying that these
motherboards **do** support boot from
USB disk on key.
This is the grub.conf on the USB DiskOnKey:
title Fedora (184.108.40.206-167.fc11.x86_64)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-167.fc11.x86_64 ro root=UUID=e73e50db-2420

I was trying to read an online tool catalogue, and noticed a PDF button at the
bottom of the webpage. Clicked on it, and it opened the dialog box to
download. What has been downloaded though is a .php script (27.3MB).
The properties shows that it contains a pdf document, but I've no idea how to
run it, open it, or whatever needs to be done, to get to see the PDF.
Any suggestions folks.

which appears that the scanner, ahh, wait, its got a card reader in it too,
in addition to ethernet and bluetooth. So that explains /dev/sg9 and /dev/sgi.
So there are two problems, which do not prevent it from being used for all
sorts of utility printing.
Problem 1 is that the newest Epson/gutenprint drivers are for the NX400
series, so the maximum useable resolution is 1440x720, whereas it can go
as high as 5760x2880. I would like to be able to get to 2880x2880 for photo work.
Problem 2 is that the scanner doesn't even check in as shown above.
OTOH, I also have an Epson 1250u that works flawlessly, but it would be nice
to get rid of one rather high occupancy item here in the coyote.den.
The current xsane device dialog skips it, going directly to the Epson 1250u,
so xsane isn't seeing it, and while I have kooka according to the menu's, it
doesn't come when called.
Has anyone a clue to pass along?
