This may be a dumb question, but why can't Redhat distribute NVIDIA binary
In NVIDIA's licence (http://www.nvidia.com/object/nv_swlicense.html) it
"2.1.2 Linux Exception. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of Section
2.1.1, SOFTWARE designed exclusively for use on the Linux operating system
copied and redistributed, provided that the binary files thereof are not
modified in any
way (except for unzipping of compressed files)."
So, what's keeping RedHat from putting the drivers in the distribution? If
it's a GPL
thing, would it be easy to just download it during installation or at
least give the option to the user?
Ok, I have had Yarrow working well for a while now, but yesterday I
started experiencing some odd issues with my mouse. All of a sudden it
stops working correctly. The only thing that seems to fix is to kill X
and run mouse-test, then restart.
Also, I have FC 1 running on a desktop which is hooked up to a KVM
switch. Whenever I go to another PC, and return, the same thing
happens, the mouse goes crazy.

I have the same symptoms...
rpcinfo says that nfs et.al. are running.
Something has changed in test 2, since the same PC running RH9
accesses that host just fine.
Over the past couple of weeks I've been getting lots of messages like
this in my logs:
unexpected RCODE (SERVFAIL) resolving 'example.com/A/IN': 188.8.131.52#53

This happens on MANY domains, not just a few, and on domains that I
would think would NOT be likely to have stupid problems (like Google and
Has something changed in BIND that could cause this?
where is gdmsetup or what is the replacement?

I've prepared a KDE4 live image for i686 for testing purposes. Last
weeks rawhide images didn't include the kde one because of a problem
with intel video drivers. Kwin would automatically enable compositing
support on such cards which seems to be broken atm. But we haven't a
bug report for that, yet. So if someone would like to provide one,
please test these images. radeon/nv users should not have these
These images are based on rawhide from 2007-12-20 and also include
Jeremy's modifications to the kickstarts (like on the normal rawhide
I'm not sure if installation would work. With my limited test
capabilities over christmas I cannot test these properly. In my tests
on one machine I've got problems with the partitioning. If this also
happens to you, please bug it.

is probably the majority of my problem
