I recently upgraded to Fedora 13, and am finding the evolution mail
client icons a bit awkward. I use KDE for the desktop. I found this
image on the 'net of basically what it use to look like:
Personally I preferred the old icons, is there any way re-install them?
If not, then:
1) I used to have both icons and text on the taskbar (as in the
picture). Now I only have the icons. Anyway I can get both back again?
2) The icons are a bit small. Anyway to increase their size?
3) The icons are quite close together, and over to the left of the
application window. As seen in the picture, the icons used to be spread
along the top. Anyway to spread out the icons a bit?

Friend of Fedora
There are a number of packages in the FC13 repos that have wrong or
missing release IDs. For example:
which is in fact intended for evolution-2.28, and not for
evolution-2.30, which is included in FC13. (And so it doesn't work)
There are a lot of such packages and many packages with no release ID at
too many to be included in an email of reasonable length, but here is a
$ wc -l *
1416 rpm.ALL Number of RPMs on the system
220 rpm.fc12 Those with ".fc12." in their name
17 rpm.none Those with neither ".fc12." nor ".fc13."
Is this harmful? Should it be reported to the Fedora Bugzilla?
Thanks - jon

I had this (or something pretty close to it a while back..... the
assembled wisdom of the list put the problem down to the sender program
not specifying the file type correctly. Sadly, it's something we have
to live with.
When using the latest kernel, 126.96.36.199-112.fc13.i686.PAE, my machine
crashes with the message
Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason a0 on CPU 0.

And then it sits for a while and quietly digs itself a hole in the ground.
I've dropped back to kernel 188.8.131.52-95.fc13.i686.PAE to see if the
problem goes away.
One possible source of this is that (see other message), I'm now using
Network Manager to manage the wireless card and have changed from WEP to
WPA. Googling indicates that this message is often associated with an
Atheros wireless card.
Anyone else having this issue?
I did a yum update because I was struggling with installing from the
installation CD's and everything seemed to go well.
But when I booted I got an error - something like...
kernel panic - VFS Error - can't mount filesystem hd(0,0) which should
The F12 kernel still boots though and the kernel parameters for my F12 &
F13 kernels are essentially the same. I also have re-run grub-install
but to no avail.
May 31 13:39:23 Installed: kernel-184.108.40.206-95.fc13.i686
So I removed the kernel and re-installed and it downloaded a newer
version of the kernel...
May 31 16:16:55 Installed: kernel-220.127.116.11-112.fc13.i686
Still the same problem. The only way I can boot is to choose the one F12
kernel still installed on this system...
This is an Athlon processor, does that matter?
Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Can someone tell me how to tame VLC so that snapshots are always saved to a

That works. Odd, I don't remember having to do that before.
Unfortunately it doesn't fix the boot problem. yes, the kvm is made, but
the VM's still refuse to boot.
Clearly I am the only person seeing this boot failure as otherwise
theere would be load screams. Does anyone else see the VM look up gPXE
before grub gets called? That also is new and may be releated my

I love the speed of the USB installer from the Live CD...!
But I would also like to stop using so many DVDs for, well everything.
USB drives are much more convenient, portable, durable, and reusable.
My ideal scenario would be able to put the DVD installer ISO onto a
bootable USB stick as well - specifically for the portability USB drives
give over DVDs, and also because USB sticks are basically a lot faster
and easily re-used once I'm done with the install. I mean, do you use
the install DVD for anything else once you've done the install?
Again - this would not be a Live image. It would be the DVD installer
itself running from a USB drive for the specific purpose of doing
exactly what the DVD installer does now.
I've tried to figure out how to do this a couple of releases back, was
unsuccessful after about 30 minutes - OK, so I gave up pretty fast.. :)
- and went back to just burning the DVD. But I'm still interested in
having this as an option and I'd bet I'm not alone.
Anyone have a how-to/magic incantation to do this? Could we eventually
make this an option for Fedora installers too?
