I've been trying to update an f18-xfce using yum.
For whatever reason while loading repos I get to fedora.updates and the
download rate drops down to 3-4 kBs. f18 will be EOL by the time this
Ok, disable it. Try to install something (alsa-utils). Wants 5.8M but
this time at 3.0kBs.
Is there anyway to find out which one of the repo servers is foobar, and
if so, a way to blacklist it?
I have two systems with which I am having problems during a shutdown or
reboot. Both are x86_64 systems running Fedora-18 (Spherical Cow). In
both cases the systems will panic before the shutdown or reboot process
is completed and system restarts or powers off. This is a problem because
the system that controls the UPS must poweroff to shutdown the UPS during
a power failure. If it does not, the UPS powers off after the batteries
run down. This is not good for the UPS.
Anyway, this problem will occurs on either of these systems after some
time has been spent working on them: running X, Firefox, Liferea, LibreOffice,
etc... If you than shutdown apps, close windows and terminate the window
manager (FVWM), and than do a shutdown or reboot from the command line.
the system will panic before the shutdown/reboot is done with the
following sampled lines:
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000100
Pid: 1, comm: shutdown Not tainted 3.7.9-205.fc18.x86_64 #1
I am now running the latest kernel: 3.8.1-201.fc18.x86_64 and application
updates, but that has not changed the conditions of this problem. I am
looking for hints for where the source of the problem may lie. I have
tried the Mate and XFCE desktops, and have not seen the problem with
them, but I have not used either of them very extensively. I have
searched Bugzilla for similar descriptions with no success. The problem
appears to be a user level issue that is causing the kernel panic. Not
something that I would expect to happen.
I am looking for QR code applications for F17. One(s) that generate QR
codes from text strings, and the different versions with different text
And applications that use the computer's camera to read the QR code and
deliver the text string.
Right now this is for demonstrations.

I deduced that I do not have a cross-complier installed.
How can I installed this option ?

I need to convert an mp4 video to wmv. Is there a way to do that in Fedora 13?

Sitting here at work, I notice that my wireless crashes about every two
or three minutes. When I check my /var/log/messages, I see that I am
roaming between two access points associated with the same ESSID that
serves my whole building. Both access points are reasonably strong, but
fluctuate a bit in signal strength.
The repeated and constant switching of access points is a big hit on my
I vaguely remember an option in NetworkManager to disallow roaming, but
I can't find it.
Does anybody know how to stop this? I looked at the man page for nmcli,
but didn't see anything about roaming...

adb is working fine with my galaxy nexus vzw. But fastboot doesn't seem to be
working. Just hangs. I see various usb error messages. But as I said, adb
works, and phone mounts OK when booted. Seems to just be fastboot not working.
I'm sure I had it working before on F17.
