I dont know what I did but suddenly my sound is broken.
I'm running Fedora 14 (x86-64) on a Dell Latitude E6410. The problem is
as soon as I plug in my headphones I loose the sound. If I unplug the
headphones I get sound out of the built in speakers of the laptop.
After I lost sound I started experimenting with the settings in sound
preferences and I'm pretty sure I have tested all possible combinations
Has anyone seen something like this before?
PS: Happy new year! :)

On all machines running F14 with a usable GUI, PackageKit's gpk-
update-viewer (which I run daily, sometimes more) often tells me it sees
no updates, or only very few. I've been making it a practice, every time
it claims that, to run yum update.
Very often yum gets a great long list (anywhere from a dozen to
two or three hundred, the latter in cases of a laptop which hasn't been
booted for weeks).
Comments, please! Am I the only one seeing this??

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
I just a had a big surprise when I got a shiny new Nvidia 460 GTX for
I tried to get the Cuda device working under Fedora 14 x86_64 and there is
no support out yet for Cuda 3.2
All the Video works ok under the Nvidia 260 driver package but getting Cuda
to work is another thing all together.
Has anyone out there had similar problems with this card.
This is one hot damn card and the only real support is with Windows 7 x64
I am running Windows now and everything works flawlessly but I miss the
security under Fedora.
I am seeing now that I have to wait for linux drivers and cuda support to
become available under fedora 14
Seti at home is where I am having the real problems under Fedora.
No matter what I do with Cuda 3.2 under Fedora it just errors out all the
With this card under Windows I get 860 gflops / second computation speed
with double precision computing.
Under Fedora the speed is cut in half and errors out all the Cuda workunits
I really miss Fedora
I have a new system with three identical hard drives. One with windows Xp pro,
one with my data and one initialized but not formatted for Fedora 14.
When I try to install Fedora from a bootable CD Fedora lists all drives with the
same part number and I can't tell the difference. How can I be sure that the
dirve I pick to
format for Fedora is the right one?

I thought I would follow up and point out that it was because of the
GNOME "monitor" application that was forcing the resolution to be
1280x1024 for that user. I didn't realize that was even a
configuration applet that was even available. I thought the nvidia
configuration application would adjust it accordingly, so never even
looked for another program.
Some of you might remember Kororaa from back in the day. Well after
switching to Fedora a year and a half or so ago (and loving it), I've
re-created Kororaa as a KDE Fedora Remix (inspired by Omega, so thanks
Rahul). I've just released an installable beta version of the x86_64
Live DVD (1.5GB) via bittorrent (http://kororaa.org/download/).
If you're looking for something Linux to do over the holidays, I would
love to hear some feedback (good and bad!) about it. I'm keen to see
how I can improve it, and to know whether this is the sort of KDE
system people are interested in (see the website for more details
http://kororaa.org/about). If it's something you're interested in
contributing to, this is a great opportunity ;-)
I have some thoughts regarding the future and aim fedora developers should
take. I - as a very average normal user - have installed several releases,
and am very happy with Fedora 13, and have no doubt Fedora 14 will satisfy
my needs as well. Having said that, there are some concerns that I'm
missing in the direction Fedora seems to be taking.
I can not code to save my life, so all that follows are things I think
developers should think about, but please do not consider what I say here
serious accusations. I'm just stating, what I - as a very average user -
1) Looks: Forgive the curse-words, but Linux has been surpassed in looks
by as far as I can see all other OSs. I don't know all, but Windoze and
Mac all look better on lesser graphic-cards. Things like true
class-borders should be developed. True see-through should also be made
possible for apps like conky et al.
Btw, I Love the F14 background.
2) Wifi: It may be a sore point, but there is no ease of installing
(newer) machines with built in wifi cards. While I understand that all
those things are built for functionality with Windoze, and that many
manufacturers don't make their own Linux drivers, but even with the
correct drivers it doesn't often work. I feel it should be on the
forefront of the developers attention to make wifi work more easily - on
all machines. Wireless computing is getting more and more popular, and is
the future for the internet. So if Linux wishes to survive (sorry to put
it so strongly), it is important that wifi works as easily as when
installing Windoze. It doesn't; check the forums, check google. Few issues
are so frequent.
3) Hardware management: su -, lshw, isn't good enough a hardware manager
for the average user. A new app should be developed that looks better and
is interactive. Enable and disable certain hardware should be an option.
Finding manufacturer's details of driver-less hardware is a must. Aida32
springs to mind, XP's Device Manager springs to mind. GUI, interactive.
This is necessary to appeal to the average user - ie. me.
And while we're at it, try and make the wifi-card enableable through this
app; rfkill unblock all doesn't always do it.
As I said, just some thoughts. Do with it what you see fit. I'll keep
using Fedora till it stops working. This is what I'm missing. Note that
if all this is already available, it isn't well enough advertised.
The internet isn't a highway, it's a swamp: the more you surf, the more it
draws you in.
