I am running alpine-2.00-1.fc10.x86_64 on an F10 box. If I get a message with
an html or file attachment and I try to open it, I get an error that
"Firefox can't find the file at /tmp/img--46112.htm" The correct program opens
up but I always get the can't find file errors. If the message contains a URL
then it comes up and displays properly.
Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this problem?

I would like to be automatically added to the CC list for a bug on
Bugzilla after I report it.
However in spite of having in my Bugzilla preferences the setting
"Automatically add me to the CC list of bugs I change" = "Always",
automatic adding is not working.
Does anyone know of any issues regarding VLC in Fedora 14 with ATI Video
I'm running into a huge memory leak issue when I play a video in VLC.
The video plays fine for about 30 or 45 seconds then memory utilization
goes through the roof. By through the roof, I mean it jumps to about
18GB of RAM before I can get the process killed.
Other video utilities like Dragon Player and the others don't seem to
have this issue.

I have four legacy suites of map software (Garmin and three
others that I care less about) and four different GPSs (all Garmin), with
a dozen years' accumulation of waypoints, routes, etc.
Wine under Fedora usually (not always, for some reason) lets me
install and run the Garmin suite and one other; but it does not enable
the software to talk to the GPSs (which all use a serial port -- and no
serial/USB adapter I know of helps).
I've looked, every couple of years, at various linux-native map
software, and always found a learning curve that would be beyond whatever
life and strength I may have left -- even if I were sure it could digest
my legacy data.
So, afaict, the alternative is to install a virtual M$ under one
of the virtualization packages, and run my legacy software under that. It
will almost never get a connection to the Net, other than updates from
Has anyone here done this? Is one package more user-friendly than
another? The last time I looked at one, two or three years ago (and I
disremember which), it had a learning curve as daunting as linux-native
map software ....
Is there a pons asinorum for such a project anywhere??

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
I'm running several kvm vm's on a centos5.6 system.
I have an FC13 guest that is working fine.
I had two working FC14 guests, and each one broke when I updated to
One broke a couple weeks ago, so I delayed updating the second FC14
guest, which was running kernel 188.8.131.52-88.fc14.i686 -- until today.
I had installed both FC14s with the default LVM layout.
In both cases, the update seemed to be proceeding but toward the end,
when I wasn't looking, both times the guest just shut down by itself.
And in both cases when I tried to boot, I the failure involved not being
able to mount the root fs, but the systems fail differently. In one
case, I am dropped directly into the grub shell, but grub cannot find
root. In the other case, I can get the regular grub menu, but whether I
choose the new kernel or the earlier kernel, I get a kernel panic.
thanks in advance.

My problem is not a big one or a rush. It is just gotten under my skin
and would like help with a fix or a hack or something.
I can't get Compiz at startup to place Firefox on viewport (workspace)
#2 at startup or login.
Using Firefox 3.6.16 and Compiz 0.8.6
I have four horizontal workspaces on my bottom panel. One of the
workspaces (#2) I want to dedicate to Firefox.
My Start Applications program has a bash script that is supposed to
delay the start of Firefox, i.e. "sleep 15; firefox & exit". It is one
of my attempts at a workaround.
Through the CCSM Place Windows plugin I have set up the following
Viewport positioned windows: (title=Firefox$ | class=Firefox-bin
X Viewport Postions: 2
Y Viewport Postions: 1
At startup, either login or restart, Firefox opens in viewport #2 very
briefly then moves itself to viewport #1. If at startup, because of my
delay script, I can get the focus onto viewport #2 with my mouse, then
Firefox will open on #2 and stay there.
During a session, after start up is completed, I can close Firefox,
focus on any viewport and when I re-launch Firefox it will automatically
open in viewport #2 as it should.
What I think is happening is that at startup, the workspace switcher
applet is stealing the focus from Firefox and placing the focus where
the workspace switcher wants the focus, namely workspace #1.
I am asking if anyone has any suggestions on how to make compiz retain
the proper placement or how to change the focus on the workspace
switcher applet to workspace #2 at startup?
What I have tried:
I have googled. Other people with earlier versions of Ubuntu have filed
bugs on the same issue. No replies.
Asked on the Compiz user manual, site, mailsite and chat. I was told to
wait for Compiz version 0.9 with no guarantee there was a fix coming. I
think it requires the synchronization of too many small programs,
applets and scripts to get a real answer.
In any case, by now this has become more of an intriguing problem for me
to solve than just a hassle or a frustration. Does anyone want to take
time to consider and offer some possible solutions or workarounds?

Sounds like it is similar to a Blackberry. You need a driver that
will increase voltage to the usb port you are plugged into.

I changed /etc/fstab to say:
/dev/mapper/vg_nbecker6f15-lv_root / ext4 norelatime
UUID=768e1633-a96b-4932-832b-f65778b51627 /boot ext4
defaults 1 2
But according to mount, norelatime was ignored. 2 questions:
1) What do I need to do to get norelatime?
2) I see /home mounted, but there is no entry in /etc/fstab. Who mounted /home,
and how can I change options?

I was misconstrued as having insulted Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew. My
words were twisted and misinterpreted and I feel that there is a need to
explain myself and set the record straight.
[b]What really happened[/b]
It was sometime in Aug/Sep in the year 2009. The setting was in the
Tampines Central office of Asiasoft Online Pte Ltd. I was having a
***verbal*** conversation with Melvin Lee, my new I.T. department
manager, when he challenged me to complete an I.T. assignment within a
specified period of time. In response to his challenge, I replied in
Mandarin: "If I cannot complete the I.T. assignment within a specified
period of time, then Lee Kuan Yew is wang ba dan". I used to be fond of
using other people's names to "bet" with people but now no more. The
Minister Mentor's name came into my mind spontaneously and I used it to
"bet" with my I.T. department manager.
1. It was not my intention to insult the Minister Mentor at that time.
Please note the use of the IF... THEN... statement in my verbal
2. I did not know wang ba dan [hanyu pinyin] means bastard at all until
I consulted Goh Meng Seng much later.
I would like to apologize to the Minister Mentor and the Prime Minister
of Singapore if I have offended them in any way. I swear it was not my
intention to insult the Minister Mentor. Please forgive me for using
your name carelessly to "bet" with my former I.T. department manager.
