How can I fix the KDE Desktop on a FC16 system.
I set up this for an in-law and today that I went to update it, I noticed
that the desktop says on the upper right hand corner "Copy of Desktop" and
none of the usual desktop icons is around.
How can I fix this? I 've been googling around but have not found anything
useful yet, maybe I am not using the right keywords.

I want to bind mouse wheel scroll and cursor keys with modifier keys in
screen but I am not sure what key code or termcap capability to
use. This is what I have tried so far with no luck.
For mouse wheel scroll:
bindkey -k SF copy
bindkey -k SR copy
bindkey -k sf copy
bindkey -k sr copy
bindkey -k cs copy
bindkey -k kF copy
bindkey -k kR copy
The following works for now: bindkey -k k8 copy (for Fn 8)
+ Here I expect to switch window with C-o <left/right>
bind \033[C next
bind \033[D prev
+ Here I expect to switch window with C-<left/right>
bindkey -d ^[[1;5D prev
bindkey -d ^[[1;5C next
+ This one was just to see if binding arrow keys work. I expected just
<left/right> to switch windows.
bindkey -d ^[[D prev
bindkey -d ^[[C next
This works however:
bindkey -k kr next
bindkey -k kl prev
What am I missing here? Thanks for any pointers,
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
My short term goal is to set up resolv.conf the way I want without
disabling network manager.
I set up a config file for dhclient, but it turns out that NetworkManager
runs dhclient with the configfile set to one it generates insteqad of
the normal one used by dhclient. For the first wireless interface the
file is named /var/run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf .
Is there a way to control what is in that file using NetworkManager
Just thought about asking you guys what the actual name is, Linux or
GNU/Linux (In our Bangladeshi community, we're really divided on this
I personally prefer Linux , what do you think?

The problem was that the firewall on my FC14 fileserver had port 111
The mount on my FC17 client does not use sunrpc, but the automount does.
After allowing port 111 everything worked fine, with everything default in
the autofs control files, so no extra nfs parameters.

I'm currently finding it difficult to upgrade my Fedora 16 laptop. I
have tried being selective and choosing just one or two of the updates
in the he updates list, hoping that after they went through I'd be able
to do the rest but to no avail. I would like to submit a photo of the
actual updates, but I think I remember reading that it's not allowed on
this mailing list. SO I have just copied the names of the updates, and
the error message I get when it fails. Hopefully someone can help me out
Name Of Updates:
"The Linux Kernel": kernel-3.4.6-1.fc16 (32-bit)
"Development package for building kernel modules to match the kernel":
"Header files for the Linux kernel for use by glibc":
"Assortment of tools for the Linux kernel": kernel-tools-3.4.6-1.fc16
List of Errors upon failure to upgrade:

Thank in advance for any help!
On my system, the boot phase takes only approximately 28 seconds but
both the reboot and shutdown phase take approximately 1 minute and 10
This did not happen with F16.
Could someone help me to solve this issue?

I have both Beefy on a desktop machine & a laptop. On the desktop
variety, `yum update` works fine but on the laptop it's always throwing
errors (timing out, 401s, etc).
The laptop was upgraded from 12 -> 15 -> 16 -> 17 using preupgrade as &
when the new releases became available & the desktop was a clean install
from a Live CD.
What I'd like to do is check that the laptop is using the same sources
for Fedora Releases as the desktop & if, as I suspect, it's not, change
it so as not to encounter these errors.
I've tried Googling on the subject but I'm just seeing results for
`/etc/yum.repos` which are not the source files with the relevant
information I'll need so if anyone can point me to the relevant config
files, I'd appreciate it.
CentOS 6.2, Debian Squeeze, Fedora Beefy, OS X Snow Leopard, Ubuntu Precise
