Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
I've been using a floppy boot disk as reserve if my HD boot fails, But
it appears floppy support as now been removed. Why? Then how can I
create an emergency media that is flexible enough to be updated as required?
I've installed Fedora 17 and trying to install Microsoft fonts from
But I couldn't install *msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm* file because *
chkfontpath* is missing.
Please help me install them. Thank you
Hi, I haxe a NFS server with NIS on RHEL6.3. When the client mounts a
directory the system doesn't traslate UID e GID but uses nobody.
The /etc/exports :
Domain = domainserver
Nobody-User = nfsnobody
Nobody-Group = nfsnobody
Method = nsswitch
passwd: files nis
group: files nis
The file /etc/fstab on client is
serverNFS:/users /users nfs4 rw,bg,intr,soft,sec=sys 0 0
but ls -la /users
drwx------ 28 nobody nobody 4096 23 lug 17:24 utente
How can I resolve this problem?

My only comment is to *please* don't choose to use really stupid names
like Ubuntu uses.
Currently, my desktop's running F16, fully updated. Just a few minutes
ago, I was reading my morning comics on-line when my box froze. Nothing
responded. Even the second hand on my desktop clock stopped moving.
Just as I was about to try for an alternate text console, it rebooted
itself and seems to be fine. This is the third or fourth time I've had
it lock up in the past few months, but the only time it's rebooted
itself and, until I "upgraded" to F16 it never happened.
I'm reporting this mostly to see if anybody else has had any similar
issues, and if so, what version of Fedora they're using. Suggestions
for diagnostics will be appreciated, but they'll have to be something I
can do over ssh, as I'm about to leave for Chaos Manor, where I'll be
house sitting while Jerry and Roberta visit their beach house.
First post...Just switched to this project after years of using another
distro. It's been a few months now and I'm on my third laptop; it's been a
rough year ;)
Whenever possible, I like to connect to an external monitor. This worked
very well in F16 on my Dell w/nvidia. Then the inverter went south and I
was stuck with a Lenovo T60 w/Intel 945GM(I quickly learned I could no
longer live without wide screen :) ). And that's where the fun started...
A yes. The infamous Intel 945 chipset...I waded through the whole sluggish
feel issues of the >2048 res issue. Then an update appeared to have
addressed all my issues(no idea which one because the one that was supposed
to fix it didn't). No matter what I'd do, connecting any external monitor
just worked; all was well.
Then more updates came and my setup broke again. That became
a vicious circle for a while. Noticed F17 was out so I switched to that.
Just like that everything stabilized(nice work on gnome-shell btw)...Then I
inherited a Toshiba Tecra A8 --no 64bit extensions like my Dell but excited
and couldn't resist switching nevertheless. Oddly enough, despite it being
the exact same video chipset as the Lenovo I can't get any external monitor
to work. Period. All the little tricks and tips I learned over the past few
months aren't helping any.
So here are the symptoms: if I connect an external monitor(VGA) it won't
light up at all. My LCD flickers and comes back to it's original state.
Fine. The display settings reflect that one was connected and typically ids
it properly. Again, fine. I then set an appropriate resolution and
placement for both and hit apply. At this point the screen flickers again
and my laptop comes back but the monitor does nothing(orange light). I can
however, bring my cursor passed the LCD to where the monitor "is" but it's
not lit so no joy there. If I let the time run out on the dialog everything
goes back to normal. No harm no foul. If I play with any of the kbd combo
keys to force the external monitor gnome-shell freaks out and I'm forced to
recover using the console. The only thing I can successfully accomplish is
Fn+F5 resulting in the external monitor only-type setup. Recovering from
that without restarting X is not possible. If I toggle back to my LCD the
screen flickers and spins. Same goes for disconnecting the VGA cable. At
this point I can't go back to the monitor either. I have no choice but to
open a console and restart Gnome-Shell. The odd time I can't even do that
and must power off(ouch! haven't had to do that in Linux for years)
Sorry about rambling on so much, just trying to give as many details as
possible. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in
