I like to compile and test the latest kernels from Linus' git tree;
however, on Fedora, I have a problem : using the git kernels with
nouveau doesn't work, but if I switch to nv then the rawhide kernel
gives me headaches (X doesn't start because "there is already a module
claiming the device" , according to Xorg.0.log. Suggestions, please?
I'm running Samba on a Fedora machine,
and was hoping to access files on a Windows XP Pro client,
by "sudo mount -t cifs harriet:C /mnt/win".
This works OK, but I am not able to browse on the Windows machine.
Am I misunderstanding something about how Samba works?
Do I need to specify this Windows folder on the Linux box?
Or is there some step I am meant to take on the Windows machine,
beyond allowing File and Folder Sharing?

Our Windows 2003 domain controllers and Samba member servers
support both ipv4 and ipv6. Our DNS server resolves hostnames
both to ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.
Recently, this turned out to be a problem when within a regular
Fedora 11 update, samba 3.2 was replaced with samba 3.4.
samba-3.4.2-0.42.fc11.i586 to be exact.
Everything Active Directory related stopped working and I had
to stop winbind because it started to eat all open file resources.
A quick look with wireshark shows that the Samba 3.4 member server
tries to make an ipv6 LDAP connection to the Windows 2003 DC.
Now Windows 2003 does support ipv6, but its AD LDAP service
does not. Samba, like any other app should fall back to ipv4,
but apparantly does not.
There more evidence to my theory because
net ads testjoin -S dc
2009/11/04 14:29:47, 0] utils/net_ads.c:279(ads_startup_int)
ads_connect: No logon servers
Join to domain is not valid: No logon servers
net ads testjoin -S dc.ipv4
Here, "dc" resolves to both ipv4 and ipv6 addresses,
and "dc.ipv4" resolves to an ipv4 address only.
Has anyone else seen this problem?
I have seen no mention of this problem on either Samba or Fedora
mailinglists, nor in bugzilla.redhat.com
I'm having problems with ktorrent crashing all the time and I wanted
to try a patch I found in bugs.kde.org which may fix this problem.
The thing is that compilation of src.rpm isn't what it used to be.
Before I would install the src.rpm, go the /usr/src/redhat/SOURCE/ and
modify the source, or add a patch (adding it in the spec file) and
then just run rpmbuild -ba my.spec and I would have the new rpm. This
doesn't work anymore.
How can I compile a src.rpm now a days?

When I open a document from Evince (File-Open) I always get a window that says
"The folder contents could not be displayed Error stating file
'/home/frankcox/Documents': No such file or directory
I don't have a directory called Documents.
Is the default directory name hard-coded into Evince? I can't find any way to
change it to a directory that I actually do have so I won't see this error
message every time.
I could put a symbolic link named Documents in my home directory but I don't
really want to...

I recently discovered Beldi on our repos: https://belug.de/~beldi/
Very interesting. I, also, realized that I need some software like
this that automatically downloads my prefered distros for
The only problem with beldi is that I can't make it de-select the
archs/ISOs I don't need/want.
If anyone knows of a program, script or rsync line that could help me
out with the following tasks:
- download the ISO files of my preferred distros
- update the iso files once the new ones are available and delete the
old one (if desired)
- get only my preferred archs
- provides a list of other distros as suggestions/proposals
This sounds like great software to me... is there anything available?
Does anyone have an idea of what to use?
I'm thinking there could be a central website that tracks download
tendencies and, possible, proposes distros based in your tastes.
Oh well, just dreaming about it. If anybody knows of something
similar, please tell me.
It's hard to be free... but I love to struggle!

I have installed F11 on an Asus Eee PC 1101HA which has the GMA 500 chipset.
After running yum for updates, I now have two kernels installed:
For the GMA 500, I installed the following:

Oct 28 00:29:51 Installed:
Oct 28 00:29:58 Installed: xorg-x11-drv-psb-0.31.0-15.fc11.i586
If I boot the original kernel, X boots OK, only the startup complains about
not finding "psb.ko". Ok, that makes sense; I only have the 2.6.30 version
installed. But if I boot the latest kernel, the boot process hangs at some
point after "Starting UDEV..." (no error message is displayed).
There are a few lines in the system log but they don't tell me much:
Oct 28 01:13:05 pollux kernel: psb 0000:00:02.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 22 (level,

Can anyone give me some pointers on how to determine what is going wrong
here? The Xorg log isn't much help. Also, is there a way of forcing the boot
process to stick with text-only? Booting at run level 3 doesn't seem to do

Another system uses FTP to drop files in a directory for me to process.
I have a bash script to process the incoming files. The script is started by
There's a problem if the FTP transfer is still in progress because the
process begins reading the file even though it isn't complete yet.
>From a bash script, is there a way to tell if the file is still being
I was looking at the lsof command, which will tell me if the file is opened
or not, so that's a possibility... but it sure seems awkward for the task.
I could also configure the ftp server to lock files being written, but that
seems to be discouraged. (based on man vsftpd.conf)
Basically, what I want is something like
Can I get an exclusive read on file x?
No - skip that file, go onto the next one
Yes - start processing that file
(I'm not concerned about the possible race condition there... I have other
protections for that)
Thanks for any suggestions...
I am trying to run F11 from an USB disk to see if my new PC will run F11
happily before removing the proprietary OS that came with it. With the
original kernel (2.6.29-4-167) that came with F11 it boots nicely to the
GUI. Any newer kernel (2.6.30 series) stops booting after initializing
the attached USB devices like keyboard and mouse. It seems it will not
find the USB HDD. It just sits there waiting. No kernel panic.
When I unplug the USB HDD it will print a usb disconnect message.
Any thoughts on how to fix this? Are there boot delay parameters or init
scripts to tweak?
