Looking in the man pages (man-db itself not in the minimal install?
Wow! It's only 1.7M and not having it continually catches someone
off-guard. I'm sure I'm not going to remember this next time I do a
minimal install.) for yum, not finding a way to black-list domains.
What I'm trying to do, the chinese servers get read early in the
rotation, and they were dogs last night. 1KB/s and slowing down. Not
sure if it's the censoring they are shooting themselves in the foot
with or the line between here and there or overloading on a Friday
night (Porn on the back channels? highly probable in totalitarian and
near-totalitarian countries.) or what. Don't care. I don't trust any
server in China right now, and I have reason not to right now, other
than simple prejudice. (Such as baidu ignoring my no robots
So I want to block yum from going to any domain in .cn .
Is there an easy way to do it, either in yum.conf or in yum.repos.d/*
, short of disabling the metalinks and grabbing the list of mirrors
from the mirrors page and deleting the Chinese servers?
(Or setting my own mirrors list up and refreshing it periodically from
mirrors.fedoraproject.org, deleting the Chinese servers as I refresh
them. That would be a lot of work, too.)
Is/are there any sort of yum group(s) that would aid in building an OS
install that includes the security lab stuff? (Tried yum groupinfo
"Security Lab" and got no carrot. Somehow I found the menu package,
but that doesn't automatically populate the menu with installed
I am looking forward to rebuild my system.
I want to buy a SSD to place all fixed, operating system files in there and
use the HDD for my Data and variable operating system files.
looks like /home and /var should go on the HDD.
Can I have a small ramdisk to place /var/run or would it cause instability
issues if I try to hibernate/sleep the system?
This would be a desktop system, right now I am tripple booting
Ubuntu/Win2k/Fedora on it.
Another question, is it possible to combine the /boot partition of Fedora
with the one of Ubuntu 12.04? I think both are using grub2 nowadays, or
would it be asking for endless trouble?
What partition scheme would you recommend? How big an SSD would I need?
I look forward to a system that boots faster and works faster when starting
up programs and such, and I want to minimize wear and tear on the SSD (I
understand they have a limit on rewrites)

I have a new Fedora-18 64 bit XFCE Live install and and I find that
ctrl+alt+backspace does not work. Is that expected?
I need that function with my equipment. I have two Saitek
illuminated keyboards the have done strange things when I switch the
color/brightness since F-16. After the color/brightness is toggled
to max I have to log out and in again using ctrl+alt+backspace. This
on two different computers. On this F-17 box I can log out/in that
way, not on the new F-18 install.
How can I change that?
It appears that the option "browser.tabs.onTop" has been removed
from about:config in Firefox 17.01!
Does anyone know how to fix this problem? It appears to be another
instance of our being forced to use what someone else prefers. It
bothers me enough to consider other browsers ...
On this computer, apparently upgraded from an earlier Firefox, the
tabs are still where I want them on bottom, although the item no
longer appears in about:config but on a new install on another
computer they are on top and I have not found a way to correct this.
There must be a fix for this, does anyone know how?

Yes, that does the trick, ran the command and Ctrl+ALT+Backspace log
me out as needed!
Than you, a seemingly minor thing but it really simplifies things here.
A heartfelt plea from a user:
Please, Please, Please if you must keep Gnome 3 then
Keep the "Fall Back Mode" in ALL future versions of Fedora.
Otherwise to me Fedora would be unusable.
Please read the justification below:
I just installed, last night, Fedora 17, on a PC! Things went very
Bravo good work!
Following this I successfully loaded all the updates with the
and again bravo it worked!
But, But, But I have found a number of what I consider disastrous
bugs in Gnome 3,
too many to list here!
But I include a few:
1) The on screen menus, located at the top left of the screen, seem very
the point of being almost unreadable. Keep in mind it is not just the
monitor, an HP
w2408h, in that the computer shares the monitor with three others via a
four way switch.
The other computers produce a bright screen, each working as expected.
So is there
any way to adjust this? Keeping in mind that I spent the evening going
through the menus.
2) Periodically parts of the screen, typically the area contained by the
boundaries of menu
entries will go all wankers, looking like a 1960's TV on an antenna that
has lost horizontal
3) Periodically the letters of the menus become a garbled to the point
of being unreadable!
4) Gnome 3 crashes about once an hour under light loading.
Thank You For Your Time.

Use wicd instead of NM.
The network service apparently will *never* start a wireless device. It
may have once upon a time, but not now. (I can't remember if it ever
did, or not)
Yum install wicd* should install what you need, then
systemctl enable wicd.service
systemctl start wicd.service
On this computer I have a copy of
"Fedora-18-Beta-x86_64-Live-XFCE.iso" I would like to
install on another computer. It has a GiGabyte GA-E350N
motherboard which has a recognized problem booting from a
thumb drive. I've used "livecreator" on three different
thumb drives and tried everything I can find to get it to
boot without success, although in the past I have managed,
not this time!
Is there a way I can install without using the USB flash
drive? There is no optical drive in that box. Is there a
scheme for installing over the LAN connection? About all I
can think of at this point is to swap a drive into another
computer that will boot from the flash drive but that's more
work than I planned on, but could do ...
