Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all thats here in the US!
I am new to Fedora... I tried F15 didnt like it and have always been a
Ubuntu User... Booo I know
I have to say its SOOO EASY to run Fedora 19... I thought Fedora was a
hard OS and DE to use...
I do have to say though the front end manager is crap unfortunately..
The gpk-application program... When trying to install apps... I click on
apply it acted like it was downloading firefox but went straight to the
end and stretched way off my monitor.... and didnt install anything I
had to use the YUM INSTALL command... Is there a better front end
manager until I get use to commands? I am using XFCE spinoff.
also on updating..... Is it like Ubuntu's in place upgrade it will tell
me there's a new version out and upgrade me to 20 or will I have to
And ideas how to fix this?

I'm trying to compile thunar-volman on Fedora 18, and after some difficulties,
I'm still stuck on
checking for gudev-1.0 >= 145... not found
*** The required package gudev-1.0 was not found on your system.
*** Please install gudev-1.0 (atleast version 145) or adjust
*** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
*** installed the package in a nonstandard prefix so that
*** pkg-config is able to find it.
I have /usr/lib/libgudev-1.0.so.0.1.3 on the system, so the development
package should be available somewhere, but I can't figure out how to get the
correct .h file installed on my system.
Any help would be appreciated.

I did not switch off my notebook in the last night to let it complete
unattended through a bigger yum update process.
When I woke up in this morning, my notebook was in standby mode with
flashing Power LED. After I had pressed some key to wake it up, I had
to enter my password twice, there returned the password dialog of the
screen saver and asked twice. Finally, I see the dialog saying that the
battery runs out of power.
Is this a bug in xfce4-power-manager or systemd or a combination issue
again? I am not sure if that case is mentioned already somewhere in an
existing bug report with systemd inhibition, please help :)
