I have been running my laptop on various versions of FC without a
problem and am currently on FC16 running Gnome 3 in full mode.
Recently the FC16 Kernel was updated from 3.4.11 to 3.6.2 and my laptop
(Dell Latitude D610 ) would no longer boot - although I could go back to
any 3.4 kernel and it booted ok and worked under Gnome 3. There were no
messages on the failed 3.6.x boot - the screen just went blank. After a
bit of delving it seemed that a similar problem had been reported in
relation to Plymouth and modesetting. Following that track lead me to
'Bug 845745 - kernel version 3.5.0-2 hangs at boot with modesetting:
"conflicting fb hw usage radeondrmfb vs VESA VGA - removing generic
driver" ' on Fedora Bugzilla.
I did try the 'nomodeset', and that does allow a boot under 3.6.2, but
then Gnome 3 goes into fallback mode.
Does anyone know if this will be fixed under FC16, or is this a generic
Kernel fix that will appear across all releases that use that kernel?
How can be used EBTABLES in addition to IPTABLES to forward traffic
from an internal LAN to an external?
Suppose that I have an internal LAN with private IPs, and a Gateway
that control the traffic to the outside, and I only need forward traffic
for certain MAC address regardless IP address.
INTERNET --> Gateway <--- LAN
I'm not sure if I have to enable the following modules in `sysctl.conf`:
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables = 0
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-arptables = 0
I have tried with the following configuration, but nothing happens:
# ebtables -F
# ebtables -t nat -F
# ebtables -P INPUT ACCEPT
# ebtables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
# ebtables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
# ebtables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o eth1 -j ACCEPT
# ebtables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s INTERNAL_LAN_CLIENT_MAC -o eth1 \
-j snat --to-source MAC_OF_EXTERNAL_GATEWAY_INTERFACE
Any thought will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

why is html/css display on fedora on firefox and google chrome alike is
different than on other os ? some times the size of a font can break the
display of a site which looks right on windows and not on fedora.
is there a way to work around this issue by tweaking some settings on
firefox and google chrome ?
I see usb_modeswitch frequently crashing with a segfault, and a message
Oct 31 19:38:28 localhost kernel: [ 33.953670] usb_modeswitch_:

Is there any way to trace back 7fffd64bfbe4 to the function name / line
Thank you in advance, Clemens
I have 1Gb of memory upgrade, so I have enough memory. My SSD is only
4Gb, but I have a 16GB SD card.
So the SSD is setup for /boot with 300Mb, swap with 1.6Gb and the rest
is /var. The SD is /
The challenge with the install is the small screen size. I complained
about this and submitted a bug on it with f14 (which was the only
install I have made on this ee701). Apparently the developers did not
feel it necessary to do anything about adjusting the dialog sizes to the
actual screen size. For the most part I was able to guess what keys to
hit for the buttons cut off below the bottom of the screen. I could not
see how to setup a LVM on the SD, so it is just and ext4 partition.
Also I could not go into customizing the packages for the install and
although I did provide my local repos so I grabbed all the updates right
off, I had to just go with the standard graphic desktop package install....
Next I will have to do the gnome 3 customizations. Though I MIGHT just
leave it for the defaults for a while, rather than all the customzations
I did for this f16 notebook a year ago. I actually would like to wait
for f18 for upgrading my main notebook; I kind of like skipping releases...
Anyway. so far so good.

I need help. I have just installed Fedora 17 from the DVD. I used text
mode installation and later converted to GUI mode using
yum groupinstall "X Window System" Desktop
and configuring systemd.
Please refer to the image below. The GUI cannot display English
characters. All I get are square boxes.
Thank you very much.

My system already had one serial port, ttyS0 which is working.
I've installed a Dynamode 2-port serial card and the kernel sees the two
ports. This provides two ports is:
PCI Spec Revision 2 compliant
Compatible with 16C550 UART
and says that it supports Linux.
However, I can't use them. I've tried using both minicom and faxxaddmodem (I'm
setting up a Hylafax modem bank).
Can anyone suggest what I need to do please.

I was installing fresh copy of fedora 17. I used /dev/sda, where the windows 7 exists, as bootloader drive. At the end of the installation of packages, error is coming "There was an error installing the bootloader. The system may not be bootable"
i discovered that i can use fedora 17 on my old laptop IBM T42.
i works great but my wireless adapter doesn't work.
i found several websites (e.g.:
http://www.ces.clemson.edu/linux/fc2-ipw2200.shtml) where some steps are
written how to make it works...however in my case, i have some errors
with make ieee80211-1.2.18.
here is the error:
/root/ieee80211-1.2.18/ieee80211_module.c:148.5: error: 'struct
net_device" has no member named 'hard_start_xmit'
is there someone who already had such issue or did this step ?
