I wasn't able to get much more that past the disk setup with the 64 bit
FC5 on my lappy. The setup file was missing from the dvd image.
That said, the 32 bit version is working nicely and my biggest squawk is
that kde has been gnome-ized to the point of not seeing many KDE apps
in the pulldowns.
Stuff like where the hell is the "control center" that lets you
configure all this stuff? Change the background screens, set file
associations and such?
One of the first yum updates I did changed kdenetwork and I've now had
to make a screen icon for kwifimanager, its no longer in the pulldowns,
having been replaced it seems with a Admin->Network, (only if you've
installed the kdeadmin package) which appears to be a nicer gui clone
This has been emasculated and if I ever had to mess with my wifi, a
broadcom with ndiswrapper, its incapable of dealing with it because of
the hatred ndiswrapper has generated. I tried, and had to go thru the
install procedure for all that ndiswrapper related stuff all over
And its not ever going to be fixed. Thats not my fault, it was what was
in the lappy when I bought it. Sue broadcom is you have to for the
info and I'll donate $100 to the effort, but support whats on the shelf
for the buyer, or give us an .iso cd we can use to survey the system
and see if its linux compatible so we can make a more intelligent
AND Why the hell did I make an /etc/sysconfig/desktop file that contains
'KDE' if I didn't want a KDE desktop? I have NDI what it is thats
running, but KDE it isn't. :(
Yeah, I'm grumpy this morning. Way the heck too many hours wasted on
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
