Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no way to run windows exe flash
movies under linux without wine? I have a foreign language video
tutorial packaged for windows users. On the course dvd there's all data
(video lessons, images and texts in xml format). Testing it under
VirtualBox windoze xp reveals that main executable (start.exe) opening
flash player with different menus and buttons. Without that it's
difficult to organize all that stuff in right order. However performance
of video under VirtualBox is very poor. And I don't want to install wine
on my machine. It would be a big hole in security. So, any suggestions?

Arping was a useful tool that was discontinued during the RHEL5
lifecycle and I have not been able to find an installable
equivalent for Fedora 14 due to glibc dependencies.
Does anyone know of a tool that can broadcast an ARP announcement
saying "this IP should resolve to this MAC” and let you specify

Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
Does the version in koji (bind-9.7.2-1.P3) resolve :
Which *seem* to only impact versions up to P2 - am I correct in
thinking this version indeed resolves the above 3 issues ?
I have setup a local repository containing several .rpm files. I created a
comps.xml file outlining the category and groups for the local repository.
However, when I issue the yum grouplist command, I get the following error:
*Failed to add groups file for repository: localRepo - comps file is
However, if I try to install one of the the packages in the repository, it
works just fine.
Here are the steps I took to create the repodata:
The comps.xml and repository are stored in the directory:
createrepo -g comps.xml .
This created a /var/www/html/myrepo/x86_64/repodata directory which contains
the comps.xml and comps.xml.gz file.
Here is my comps.xml file:

System is Fedora 12 in init 3 (non-gui) boot.
I have a 1.5Tb USB drive. When I reboot, typically I have had to unplug
and replug the drive or even power cycle the drive to get it found.
Well with this morning's new kernel update, i rebooted and though the
drive is showing in /media, none of its content is showing.
Shows nothing. What to do?
So I was HOPING that perhaps adding autofs would get this properly
mounted so I can access all the data I have on the drive.
So, I'm having a problem with my Fedora 14 setup. I've recently
installed the distro on the machine, and set up full disk encryption
using the standard method in Anaconda. However, on the passphrase
screen (the one which appears as the OS starts), any input on my
wireless USB keyboard (this one:
http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=223792) doesn't work -
there appears to be no response to input from the keyboard. If I
connect a wired keyboard (this isn't a long-term solution, however -
the box is to become a media server, hidden behind my TV), then I can
enter the passphrase and continue just fine - once I get to the normal
user login screen, then I can enter my password and log in then. I
don't believe it's a BIOS problem as I can use the keyboard to
navigate around the BIOS setup screens no problem.
I did set up my machine using the wired keyboard, and only changed to
the wireless one at a later date, so I'm wondering if some relevant
kmod is missing when it's required, or something like that.
Any help to get my wireless keyboard up and running so I can enter my
passphrase with it would be much appreciated!
I am new to the list so I will apologize for any problem with my post.
I upgraded my Fedora 13 to 14 using the "yum" method.
After the upgrade, when I ran yum upgrade, I ran into a few problem:

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
And...many many of these..

I'd like to install openshot. As it is not available in any repo I
picked the rpm package from here.
Unfortunately it needs python2.6, giving me the following error:
mlt-python-0.5.4-1.fc14.x86_64 requires python(abi) = 2.6
openshot-1.2.2-1.fc13.noarch requires python(abi) = 2.6
I'm using f14 so there's only python2.7 in the repos. Where could I
