Arora has just crashed. SELinux reports that I may be under
attack and should report. I'm guessing it's a lot more likely SELinux is
being needlessly paranoid. (I'm running F17, fully updated, and arora had
a probably excessive number of tabs open.)
Is this guess plausible? What should I do?

Remember I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
Has anyone succeeded in spinning down disks under Fedora?
I've done the following and the "hdparm -C" does show the disk spun
down, but the next time I look it is spun up, and it stays up. The disk
is unmounted and I've stopped and disabled smartd, so it isn't accessing
the disks. I don't think anything else is either. I'm probably missing
a trick somewhere, but what???
hdparm -S 120 $disk
hdparm -y $disk
hdparm -C $disk
I recently got a pop-up say "Sticky keyboard - disabled" and my keyboard stopped
working. My first reaction was that the message was translated to English, and
"stuck key" became "sticky keyboard." Can't think of a sensor for that.
In any case, keyboard was *WAY* disabled, plugging in a USB keyboard didn't
help, ssh from another machine didn't help (keystrtokes not accepted), and I
finally had to reboot the machine, after migrating all the guests elsewhere or
shutting them down. Major PITA.
So is there (supposed to be) a way to clear that? And how does the driver tell a
stuck key from a user holding a key, like a gamer holding down "F" to fire
weapons, as I've seen them do. How is it detected, and please may I make it not
do that? Recovery by boot is a Windows technology, they might have it patented.

For the past few days I've stopped receiving e-mail from the fedora list.
I' checked my fedora membership mailing list config and found this:
We have received some recent bounces from your address. Your current bounce score is 3.0 out of a maximum of 5.0.
Please double check that your subscribed address is correct and that there are no problems with delivery to this address.
Your bounce score will be automatically reset if the problems are corrected soon.
I can't see anything out of order on my ymail.com account profile. (I've changed nothing.)
There are no filters and no blocking set. I really don't know what to do at this point. Who should I contact and what else should I check?
Any help will be appreciated! (I'll monitor <http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/users/>)
I've got a dual boot PC at home with Win-XP and Fedora 18. (I did also have
the problem when it used to run Fedora 10).
When in WinXP everything works perfectly. However when in Fedora the key
repeat doesn't work properly. Occassionally while typing I will get 2 or 3
of the same character which is rather annoying. What is even more annoying is
that when I use the backspace key to fix the problem it will sometimes delete
10 - 20 characters instead of 1-2.
The keyboard is a Microsoft badged multi-media keyboard but as I didn't have
to install any drivers in WinXP I think it's just the same as any other
Anyone got any ideas how I can fix it?

Ever since I started using Linux (around Y2K, Caldera 2.3) the first
thing I do is install a 'print to pdf' solution.
Ever since I started using Fedora (FC6) the solution is to install 'cups-pdf'.
So if cups-pdf is only 47 KB big, and has no other dependencies (other
than cups, which is installed by default), then why on Earth isn't it
included in the LiveCD?
Booting from LiveCD and being able to print to pdf (for instance,
content one sees on the web and wants to mail it to someone else while
testing how well Fedora works), would be a big plus, if you ask me.
So, what is the official sanctioned, polite way to get things like
these accomplished in future Fedora releases?

I want to know if I am late for the test. Moments ago, I read Mr. A.
Williamson's email about the Intel test today, and started upgrading to
Alpha over the last hour; I feel that it may to late. Am I correct in this
or are the tests allowable to the 25th?
