I have the yarrow's iso files on my HD in a RH9 system. Let's say I want
to upgrade selected packages using an "apt-get install" pointing to my
iso-mounted files, how do I do it?
i.e I mount the iso into some /mnt/yarrow1, /mnt/yarrow 2 etc..
Then what is the complete procedure to make my apt look into my own HD to
upgrade packages. Can anybody redirect me to the correct
resource or some literature hanging on the web? Thanks.
Assume also that I do not wish to burn CDs! I do not want to use

Nowadays the jack project has two branches - old jack (1) branch with
version 0.116.2 and new one called jack2 version 1.9.3.
I'd like to gather opinions and suggestions about applying new version for F13.
Please, share your thoughts!
With Best Regards,
I'd like to retire kudzu for F-13.
- There are places where it almost certainly does not work with current kernels
- It's so deprecated that one of its replacements (HAL) has since been
frozen and deprecated
- Given that, its upstream is very dead
However, it is still being required by two programs:
If someone wants to keep it limping along for thsese two programs I can
orphan it. But I'd really rather just retire it.
thunderbird seem to remove spaces from lines that only consist of one or
more spaces. Any way of preventing thunderbird from doing so? I already
have "mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed false" and turned of line wrapping.
With these option sending patches works pretty well, only recently I
had a patch that got corrupted because of spaces being removed.

According to bug #517013, %post scripts should not assume that /dev is
available -- so we can't do anything that requires the existence of
/dev/null, /dev/urandom, etc.
Is this a known and expected packaging rule, or is it a bug in the way
that the user is attempting to install the packages?

Linux Format is a popular magazine in the U.K but which ships all over
the world. It regularly reviews interesting bits of software and I
a) It would be interesting to see how much of what they review is
included in Fedora
b) It would be a good idea to get that which is not in and/or up to date
c) If there is enough interest I would like to form a SIG to do the
monthly reviews - a kind of packaging wishlist on steroids perhaps :)
I blogged about this recently and you can read the basic idea there:
The editor has expressed his willingness to send details of software
which they will review to us so we have a head start. I have conducted
the first review of the January 2010 issue which you can read here:
There are some interesting omissions, for example Recoll, the desktop
search tool which came out ahead of Beagle and Google Desktop and
which doesn't even have a review request opened for it yet.
A few points that need mentioning:
1) I do not and have never worked for Linux Format nor has anyone I know :)
2) There may be some glaring errors - this is why this is on the wiki
so please feel free to update/change etc. For example I have not
undertaken rigorous reviews for the software's suitability.
3) This is not intended as anything other than a distillation of what
would be good to have in the repositories.
I welcome your comments as ever.
I made a clean install of Fedora 12, and pulseaudio seems to be behaving
completely different. Any mixer control I have (master, pcm, front ,,,)
the pulse volume slider (looking at pavucontrol). In the past, pulse only
controlled PCM, I guess.
But the worst point is that there is no more application volume memory.
All applications when launched are at full volume, and this is really
Is this a kind of new feature? Is it configurable?

It is a application that lets you minimize any app to the system tray
and is compatible with GNOME, Xfce, KDE etc. It has a dormant upstream
and I haven't had time to look into all the crash reports from Abrt. If
noone picks it up, I will orphan it in a week.

I have this bz open for some time now, with no response.
Can some one with proven packager access bump the EL-5 version to the
latest one in devel.

What's wrong with ABRT?
Originally, with stock F-12, I had received a couple of good backtraces in
bugzilla. Incredibly useful. A wonderful improvement over F-11 and older.
And later? - Recently, in all the backtraces dozens of debuginfo packages
are missing. :-(
