Since upgrading from F10 to F11 several weeks ago, I have been having
recurring problems with audio, and I am having difficulty figuring out what
is going on.
To start with, when Gnome starts up, sounds works fine in all apps.
Then it dies. Not while I am using the system; during inactivity, so I don't
get any leads. The volume sliderbar, ie, Sound Preferences applet still
"sees" the audio device (in earlier times, when sound died, the Sound
Preferences no long recognized the audio device).
I try to restarting nasd, no luck.
I logout, login again, Gnome restarts, sounds works now.
Wild guess: something to do with Flash. From dmesg:
$ dmesg | grep npviewer
npviewer.bin: segfault at b6fa7030 ip 007c6ccd sp bf9cb688 error 4 in
npviewer.bin general protection ip:130a31c sp:bff88450 error:0 in
npviewer.bin general protection ip:116b31c sp:bfc9bdf0 error:0 in
Is npviewer "taking down" the audio when it segfaults?
I also see this line in dmesg, but it scarcely seems important:
hda-intel: IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #0. Suggest a bigger
Can someone give me some ideas on how to figure out what is happening here?

On the Lenovo X61S laptop, the volume buttons are not doing anything
useful in text mode. Could it be possible to get acpi events to adjust the
volume? How should I set up such a feature, if possible at all?
I am trying to help someone get a system to reboot after a system issue.
He is not the builder of the system and the person that knows the
system is away for a few weeks. Great timing. :)
It is Fedora 10.
Two drives, two partitions each drive which one is a mirror.
/dev/sda is partitioned as /boot and / which is mirror 1.
/dev/sdb is partitioned as swap and /
The system wouldn't restart on the reboot and came up with an error
after creating the raid arrays and then saying that it cannot find
/dev/md0. I don't have the exact error message right now.
Using an Ubuntu disk (persons personal preference) the system was booted
into a live system and using gparted the partitions were shown to be as
above with as I see it, one error.
/dev/sda1 ext3 boot
/dev/sda2 ext3 / raid
/dev/sdb2 Unknown / raid
Running mdadm /dev/sdb2 --examine shows that the partition superblock is
showing RAID 1 and that it is clean.
As this is a critical system, it is a priority and is being used as a
With only the second drive installed, we tried to run fsck.ext3 on the
/dev/sda2 (normally b2) with no success. We also tried /dev/md0 as
Ubuntu has created the /dev/md0 from the single drive.
The user has not tried to boot with only the one drive in yet. He is
making a copy of the drive on a different system.
Now, the question. On booting from a mirror 1 array, if there is a
problem with the raid system, how does the boot process read the
mdadm.conf file when it is on the RAID array that needs to be created?
Is there some data that is stored in the /boot or someplace else that
has the necessary info to tell the system how to build the array?
Is it part of the /boot/grub/device.map or /boot/System.map* ?
Any suggestions to where to start?
Does anybody have knowledge of an mail client has the most ideal
functionality for Fedora?
I am currently using Thunderbird as its user interface is comfortable for
me, and it has plugins to handle gpg encryption, can sync to caldav
calendars (like Yahoo) - but one big downside is that its local storage is
in mbox format which is really awful for large collections of mail.
I have used Kmail in the past which did have support for maildir format as a
big plus, and did support gpg encryption, but it never supported html mail
properly which was a big downside - and I don't know if it will sync to
Is there a single mail client that has a nice UI, can support both html mail
and maildir format, as well as syncing caldav calendars and support gog
encryption? Of course supporting multiple email accounts including imap is
Email clients have been a slight irritation for me since I never found one
that supports everything that I need in a single application.

I have a HD connected as USB device and cause for electrical problems in my home, my disk go off unexpectedly more than one time some weeks ago, a few days ago I can't mount neither of my linux partitions on that disk.
Always I get this error: org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Disks.Error.Failed: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 32: mount: Stale NFS file handle
I run an e2fsck -y /dev/sdb6 (one of the partition) and after the command finished I mount the partition and... the partition is like a new linux partition, all my data is lost. Under Nautilus/Properties filesystem type is shown as ext3/ext4 and under Gparted filesystem is shown as ext2.
Any idea why is this? Or how can I restore all the data pre existing in that partition?
When upgrading from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 failed, I did a clean install
of Fedora 11 and restored my personal home directory including the
subdirectory .gconf from Fedora 10. I use Gnome for my desktop environment.
Everytime I reboot/login, all my desktop icons are missing. To get them
back for that session, I run gtweakui-nautilus. Deselecting the "Use
nautilus to draw desktop" and then selecting it restores my desktop icons.
Deleting (by renaming) my ~/.gconf subdirectory and rebooting results in
no changes, the desktop icons are still missing.
Is there some setting that changed between Fedora 10 and 11 that I am
not setting correctly to get my desktop to display my icons?
How do I get my desktop to display the icons without manual intervention?

I guess that the second means I don't have hardware aceleration.
What does the first one mean?

No mention of my geforce graphics card (GX5200LE 128 MB AGP).
Would this sort of thing cause mplayer and ffplay to freeze?
Each of them last a couple before seconds before freezing.
ffplay keeps a little over 1% of the cpu.
Don't remember about mplayer.
The card is not the same kind as the original.
A year or so ago, I destroyed the original installing a disk drive.
I've not deliberately done anything to edit
my graphics infrastructure since then.
I have installed Fedora 9 since then.

I'd like to share a positive experience with sound on f10.
I'd had issues with the mute button not working (turns out it was, it
was just muting a different channel than the one I was listening to).
Once I learned about the different mixers and volume controls it has
"just worked" for me.
I'm listening to a CD right now and get a popup when each song begins
that shows the album cover, name and song title. Very nice surprise.
I enjoy international music so I've been using VLC to explore the
shoutcast feeds and once I find a keeper I add it to Rhythmbox. I tried
to play one of the stations and got another popup advising me that I was
missing a particular codec and would I like it to try to find it for me.
Feeling brave I agreed. That's when I had my WOW moment.
It went exploring and installed some files from a "bad" repository, some
others for dependencies. When all was said and done it had not only
installed the missing codec but also quicktime and midi software with
the midi "font" library.
A quick restart of Rhythmbox and everything just works. I can actually
listen to VLC, Rhythmbox, and the CD player, all at the same time. I
was actually listening to the same shoutcast on the two different
players, with a slight delay between them for a music in-the-round
experience. Fun stuff.
Having lived with marginal audio experiences on Linux for the last
decade or so this is nothing short of amazing.
Kudos to all involved. Great work.
For those of you still having problems I feel for you but be confident.
I have heard the future and it sounds great!
