So, I've decided to jump back onto IM after a few years. My last
Linux-based IM client was AYTTM, but I'm not even sure it's still
packaged with Fedora, although I suppose I could "roll my own" so to
speak. :D I'd prefer to use a pre-packaged IM client.
I've tried Pidgin, but I'm having a problem where if I change my
status to "away" it freezes out the keyboard and won't let me type
anything until I close Pidgin and start it back up.
I currently use LXDE and KDE. Anyone got a suggestion for a good
multi-protocol IM client? I used to use Trillian on the Windows side
of things, but I try to stay away from Windows as much as possible. :D
Just posting this as a data point, since I've found it hard in the
past to find out what wireless hardware is going to work or not
(difficulty in finding out card chipsets, checking support for the
chipset etc.), particularly for PCI cards.
I've replaced my PCI EDI Max EW-7122 (ralink rt2500 chipset) with a
new PCIe wireless card: TP-Link TL-WN881ND (Atheros AR9287 chipset).
Back when I got it the rt2500 was one of the best supported wireless
chipsets, but the card was beginning to show its age. The new card
is a 802.11n-compatible with two aerials, though my AP is still 11g,
so I'm still limited to 54Mbs max. I haven't seen much difference in
raw signal or reported link quality, but the link stability and
through-put under Fedora 16 seem to be much better than previously.
 I think there are a number of factors: where I am now I get poorer
signal, obviously bandwidth demands have gone up over the years, maybe
there's some hardware degradation and finally, though the team
supporting the kernel driver have made a great effort the driver
pre-dated the newer wireless stack and never seems to have been quite
i have claws-mail with smime and gpg
I followed this link to configure
my question is:
is still the best practice to use what suggested here:
KDE has a way to run scripts and thus export environment variables at startup
time. Every application running in this session will get access to these
variables. All you have to do is create a file under the directory ~/.kde/env/
(if it doesn't exist, then create it). I named it gpgagent.sh, the content of
this shell script is quite trivial (don't forget to chmod +x):
or, with f17, something different should be configured?
I'm on Fedora 17, using a German locale. Since today's yum update the German
umlaut 'ü' is not displayed for some sans-serif fonts on some web pages
anymore. Interestingly enough that's purely a display issue and both Firefox
and Chrome are affected.
The yum updated updated two fonts (lohit-kannada-fonts, wqy-zenhei-fonts)
which I manually uninstalled but to no avail.
Interestingly the problem seems related to HTML headlines (<h3>, <h2>, ...)
but not regular text.
I saw the issue on multiple sites
How can I debug that issue? Anyone else with a similar problem?
I'm currently using a Gateway T-6321 Laptop with a web-cam built into
it's lid / screen area. I have Cheese installed.....along with Pidgin. I
am wondering what I need to do or install or enable in order to get my
web-cam to actually work with my Pidgin? Or are they just separate
entities?...I can see myself on the web-cam when I start it up, but
there are no features or "Options" in it's menu that say anything like
"Enable Web-Video Chat"...or anything along those lines.....anyone have
any clues?...I'm stumped!
Why `postfix´ isn't not included in the Fedora 17 Official DVD? And why `sendmail´ comes now as the default mta agent?

I am using Fedora 17 and recently I got two Oopses:
I suspect there *may* be some on-disk corruption but
I can't seem to be able to run e2fsck on my /home
which is 3.6TB in size. I booted into single mode and
ran "umount /home" but e2fsck on my home partition
still reports "resource is busy". lsof doesn't tell me
what's using the partition.
How can I run fsck on /home or maybe on / for that matter?
I guess booting the Fedora 17 DVD in rescue mode can be
used. But how to do it without it? I have used yum to upgrade
from F16 (and F14 before) and don't have the DVD at hand.
Thanks in advance,
Every morning I have yumex update my system while I'm cooking breakfast.
Today, it failed with this error:
11:28:59 : YUM: error: rpmdbNextIterator: skipping h# 16675 Header V3
RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID a82ba4b7: BAD
11:32:02 : YUM: Transaction couldn't start:
11:32:02 : YUM: /usr/sbin/useradd is needed by nscd-2.14.90-24.fc16.9.i686
Checking, /usr/sbin/useradd exists and has the proper permissions:
[joe@khorlia Desktop]$ ls -l /usr/sbin/useradd
-rwxr-x---. 1 root root 101168 Feb 13 2012 /usr/sbin/useradd
I tried running the transaction again, with nscd unchecked, but it was
re-added as a dependency. I let it go to see what would happen and so
far, at least, it seems to be running OK. Has anybody else seen this,
or know why it happened?
using driveropts=forcespeed speed=2 .....etc does not work
using ... speed=2 ..... does not work
wodim always writes at the medium's encoded speed, which
ranges from 10X to 24x.
However, using speed=2 on DVD media DOES work.
Here is the content of /etc/wodim.conf which I gleaned from the web.
I got a dozen or so people using smb/cifs on both fedora desktop and
virtualbox/win7. Recently I upgraded a desktop to fc17 and her linux
desktop dolphin file browser stalls/hang and she can still run other
apps, but libre and dolphin and hung. I have double checked the
setting and they looked the same. I tried a reinstall of all her samba
software, no help.
Did a complete new install of fc17, same problem. Other desktop with
work, both linux and vb/win7. The virtualbox/win7 access works fine
on the same machine, leads me to think its a kde or smb/cifs issue or
config. Any advice or comments welcomed...thanks
need to get the client side.
