Hi. I've searched release notes, bugzilla and news archives for an
answer to this, but haven't found one. I have found one other query on
fedoraforum, but no solution. (
I started installing f14 on a machine (P4, 2GB ram, 30GB free on 75GB
HD, 1st partition is WinXP). I use manual setup of partitions, as I have
always done, planning to use the following approximate scheme:
sda1 - primary - ntfs - 45 GB - winXP
sda2 - primary - ext2 - 200 MB - /boot
sda5 - extended - ext4 - 7 GB - /home
sda6 - extended - swap - 2 GB - [swap]
sda7 - extended - ext4 - 20 GB - /
It seems that anaconda overrides my choice of not ticking the 'create
primary partition' box in the 'add partition' dialog, making all three
first partitions created primary. This means that both /boot and either
/home or / would be primary partitions.
- 'Olde' knowledge says that only one primary partition can be visible
to the system at one time. Is this not longer true?
- If still true, the system wouldn't be able to see the home or root
partition, would it?
- If the behaviour is by design, what is the reasoning behind it? Is
it better than letting the admin decide?
I haven't yet tried partitioning with fdisk first, but will try to do
that tomorrow. Hopefully it will be a usable workaround.
Have a nice weekend,

Re: backup copy of F14 boots, but can't login.
endless recycle of login screen: fixed by 'touch /.autorelabel, reboot'.
Still was unable to make id:3:initdefault: take effect.
Ctrl-Alt-F2 does get me to text login screen.
Also can get to runlevel 3 by appending '3' to kernel line]
Since then, I noticed I was getting a newly updated /.autofsck
every time I rebooted.
Thinking this was indicating I needed to run fsck,
I did touch /forcefcsk, rebooted, and the system did the fsck,
no errors, needed no response from me.
Still getting a newly updated /.autofsck on every reboot.
Still no effect id:3:initdefault in inittab.
Any advice re /.autofsck?
Does its continual reappearance indicate a problem?
I'm used to work with eclipse-phpeclipse (from the repository)
After installing eclipse-egit and eclipse-jgit, PHP project are no more
After removing git stuff, workspace, .eclipse, reinstalling eclipse,
still not working...
PHP Eclipse is listed in the Installed software, but not available in
the "New project".
Any idea ?
I just installed Kicad and I have a couple question for some one
familiar with "PCB design" I generated a new part and saved in my
user directory, but the program does not give me the option to
access any other directory other the default. The second question,
can PCB design show a picture of the part highlighted?
Thank you in advance. Vinny
I just wanted to ask if someone has any advice to themes for Gnome2 (I
am running F14) that are reputed to be gentle on the eyes? I work very
much on the computer, and it does wear my eyes down after a while with
the standard color settings. Friend of mine is using green background
and stuff and says it helps, but I would rather find a full-blown theme
Thanks in advance!
I am writing this message with the hope that someone on this
list has this uverse router.'
When I use Firefox to browse to this router (192.168.1.254),
it displays the "Home" machines connected to the network.
For each machine it displays:
a tv icon, it's name, and a link named "Access FIles"
and another link named "Device Details".
If I click on any machine's "Acess FIles" link, it
displays my Fedora's / directory completely.
I have no ftp daemon running.
I have no apache running.
In fact I do not have ANY internet server running.
So how in blazes is the router able to display my
entire system's files?
If I aim my browser at my own IP address,
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 192.168.1.201.
So how is the router doing it?
This is a very disconcerting security hole and I have not been
able to nail it down to any daemon running on my Fedora.
Thanks for your insights.
I am running Fedora 14.
I want to use the planner for small personal projects and I want to be
able to view my plan from different hosts around the house.
In the docs for Gnome Planner it says you can save to a PostgreSQL
So, I set u pa PostgresSQL database per the instructions in the planner
help User Guide. I have the PostgresSQL running. I can use pgAdmin III
to connect to it and can see the plannerdb that the instrucitons have
So, I sit down at the host that I had previous saved the plan to a file
and the instructions say to save to a database use:
File->Export->Save to Database
But, no such option appears in the Export drop down menu. Only
Planner 0.11 Format
I am assuming the database option isn't configured somehow or wasn't
compiled in or something.
Anyone know how to get the database option available in gnome planner?
In a fresh install of f14 x86_64, I am getting a failure when
/etc/cron.d/0hourly is run. As it is a fresh install, I am pretty
certain it is a potential bug. I searched the bug base under "cron",
"cron.d", "crontab", and "run-parts" (the call that is in 0hourly), but
didn't see anything.
I submitted Bug 718448 about it and, per Bugzilla home page suggestion,
am querying the community to see if anyone knows about this and/or has a
solution (if there is a solution, be it pilot error or Fedora, I will
update or, hopefully, close the bug).
The summation of the issue is "the default install provided a 0hourly
Thanks in advance,
I seem to forget my shell programming
but is the following statement valid?
I thought it was called the tristate conditional
operator but in any case I could not find it in
I Installed f15 -gnome, but I didn't like, I couldn't find any thing and
after a couple of days of struggling I decided that I had need to do
some work and relearn a completely a new way to find my way
around I decided to install f15-KDE here all thaw I never used before
I was able to do more in less time learning.
I found, however, a problem with Acrobat reader. I accessed
the Atmel side and try to load a spec sheet for a AT24C16 before
installing acrobat, didn't do any thing but a message saying it was
required Acrobat reader. I downloaded and installed Acrobat and try
again I got the same result, however, I try by double click on pdf file
and Acrobat ran and loaded the file OK (the screen was scrambled
at the very beginning and cleared out as soon the file was loaded).
By the way, I try to download the spec sheet using another
computer and worked OK.
I will appreciate if some one can help me out
