I have a Pengpod 1000 that runs both Andriod and Linux from a 32G SD
card. The Andriod system works great, but the Linux with a virtual keyboard
was very difficult to use, later got an usb keyboard and was an improvement,
but since I mainly use Fedora was not happy with the distro that was
included. I was looking at getting they newer 1040 which was going to have a
quad core system and some other enhancements, but there funding project
didn't meet the goal, so money was returned. They had done testing with a
number of Linux versions, but never heard of a Fedora version? Anyone
know of a tablet that works well with Linux, and with a Fedora release? Have
a number of notebooks that have no real issues with the Fedora 19, but is
linux just not interested in tablets? Or are tablets not interested in Linux?
Liked the ideal of a dual boot system with the Pengpod, but looks like that
isn't going to be an option for further development.

I have a Sony 128MB memory stick. When inserted, Fedora 19 does not recognize it -- lsblk does not show it, dmesg reports nothing. It's writable by Windows 7, which reports the device as "JMCR MS SCSI Disk Device"
Any thoughts on how to access the stick under Fedora?
I got a HP dv4 5306tx laptop with the UEFI+CSM mode enabled, and succeeded in installation of fedora 18 i686.
However, I failed to install nvidia driver. After I installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-319.60.run(no error), the X cannot be started until I restore open source driver.
I have no idea about the exact reason for this. Does UEFI+CSM prohibit loading of Nvidia driver? AFAIK, the CSM mode is compatible with untrusted soft, and my fedora is not installed in UEFI mode.
Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Every time that I have an USB key plugged inside my computer, if it switches

As I open more windows or tabs in Firefox it becomes slower and slower,
finally unusable. It can take as long as 20 seconds to scroll the
screen, which tends to scroll in large jumps, even when smooth scroll is
enabled. The problem is worse when smooth scrolling is enabled, but is
bad enough even when it is not. Other applications seem to have
scrolling slowed somewhat when Firefox has many windows open. The
problem seems to be related to flash, since when I kill xulrunner/flash,
graphics performance gets better, but still does not always become
acceptable. Swapping between Firefox windows and tabs is normal.
It looks to me like a memory swapping issue, but I have no evidence
beyond my gut.
Right now Firefox has 30 tabs open on all its windows. Performance is
bad, though not intolerable.
The system is:
4 processor x86_64 system
Fedora-19 with all updates installed,
Nvidia GeForce 8400GS with the proprietary driver.
Any ideas what's going on, or how to investigate?
The Fedora Newsletter used to contain short articles
dealing with a single topic, say WiFi,
with information and advice on that topic.
I found this very useful.
This ended several years ago,
and the newsletter became a record of meetings held,
decisions taken, etc.
I did not find this interesting or useful.
As far as I can see, the newsletter has now been replaced
by the Fedora Magazine <http://fedoramagazine.org/>.
I hoped when I saw this that this meant a return
to the old newsletter model, with articles dealing with specific topics,
from a user-support point of view.
Unfortunately, I don't see anything like that in the magazine.
Is there any plan to offer something along those lines in the future?
I see there is an AskFedora section, but it appears to be empty,
apart from an introductory article which seems to be by Rahul Sundaram,
although that is not entirely clear.
Amything by Rahul would be very welcome,
since I've always found his comments extremely useful and to the point.
But I haven't seen any for some time.

I'm running into a strange problem during resume on a Dell mini 9 (inspiron 910) when running F19. After coming from Debian and having a flawless suspend, this seems strange.
I have removed the @gnome group and added @xfce
* Suspend to RAM
* Resume from RAM
* Xscreensaver hangs for about a minute, then pops out an authentication prompt.
* System is slow and sluggish -- Networking is disabled and lots of things seem broken.
* attempt to look at dmesg to see if something is wrong
* dmesg spits out nothing related to suspend/resume
* Check journald, which hangs and
- exits 0,
- or responds that D-Bus is gone and it doesnt know what happened.
* Attempt to restart
- calling 'halt' immediately fails
- calling 'shutdown -h 0' never does anything (took 1 hour to respond that D-Bus had gone away.
- magic SysReq doesn't work (USB keyboard)
- Sometimes if X is running, I get punted back to a broken login prompt in Lightdm
* Kill power and hard restart.
Attached is journald recording the failure.

On my Fedora boxes I still use yum-updateonboot.
started with a custom .service file.
Is there any method
I can get it to reboot if a critpath rpm is updated,
I have as yet found an easy method,

I am running Fedora-19 + latest updates and would like to make Xorg
listen to tcp connections for development.
I already set "xserver-allow-tcp=true" in /etc/lightdm/lightdm and
executed "xhost +", however I still get connection refused when
starting x-clients with DSIPLAY=127.0.0.1:0.0 :/
Any idea where this secret switch is hidden these days?
Thank you in advance, Clemens
