I'm not sure if my problem is due to updates, but this problem does
coincide with the 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 kernel update. On reboot, I noticed
that my PostgreSQL database service fails. However, after I login to
the Gnome desktop, I can execute /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql start in a
conosle, and it works fine. What could cause this anomaly?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
I am the proud owner of a new dual core AMD 64-bit system and am
fighting to get it into shape to replace my old system. I am currently
fighting the browser plug-in situation. Is there any tutorial,
white-paper or the like that someone can point me to to do this?
Alternatively how do I create a 32-bit browser?

I have a 128 MB USB Lexar Jump Drive. It worked reliably for me for
close to a year. About a month ago it became painfully slow when
writing large files to it (both Fedora and Windows) - It takes about 24
minutes to write a 4.5 MB file to it. Read speed from the device
appears to be as fast as always.
I contacted Lexar and they suggested that I reformat the device with
FAT32 format. After reformatting to FAT32 read/write speed when using
Windows appears to be back to normal. However when automounted on my
FC3 desktop the write speed is still 24 minutes to write the same 4.5 MB
file. Fast on Windows slow on Fedora - any one have any suggestions?
Of course Lexar is no help when it comes to Linux.
Sometimes when getting my mail from a server, the last one breaks the
connection so that after some time when I try to get it again, the
Sylpheed-Claws-1.9.15-1.fc4 gets the downloaded messages again. I want
to reduce the traffic, so don't want that that be the case. Tell me
please how I can do that? Thank You.
I've been reading up, and talking up, various security strategies. One thing
that is striking to me in looking at logs for my servers are the endless ssh
probes that go on. It appears to be one of the most common. Up till recently,
I had dealt with this by using firewall rules to allow ssh access only to
selected ip addresses - to all others, the port appears closed (I checked
this with port scans). Now, I must change strategies. I need to give access
to an associate who gets his dsl ip address via dhcp, so it's always
changing. I'm not quite ready to try port knocking, so, the other suggestion
I read over and over is to provide ssh on a non-standard port. So, I throw
this out to the collective experience - what's your take on that strategy?
Won't simple scans reveal the existence of ssh access on a non-standard port?
Is this really much protection? Is it merely a question of reducing odds?

Can anyone recommend a tape drive that meets these requirements?
1) easy to get working in Fedora Core 3 & 4
3) works fine with Amanda
4) stores 200+ Gb on a tape or single set of tapes
If it's easy and obvious how to eject and insert tapes, that's a plus,
since this is going to be in a location without any real techies.
sorry for the repost, I didn't relealize the subject line was still blank when I
Can one of you recommend the best graphical FTP client for FC4 that is available
as open source and is available as an rpm?
I just replaced Win98 with Fedora Core 4 on a friends' computer: AMD
550, 128MB RAM. Now, he can work for a limited amount of time (between
20-150 minutes), then the computer gets stuck. Not even the mouse
works. He can, however, switch to a console with CTR-ALT-F1.
When restarted, there is no graphical mode, only console. If he lets
the computer sit for a few hours, he can boot up a graphical screen,
but after some time the problem reoccurs. Nothing in the computer
(open case) seems unusually hot, which was my first thought.
Any ideas on where to look? Thank you.

You should be able to get the latest kernel by just doing "yum update"
as long as you have another way to get on-line with the system (wire,
built-in wireless and ndiswrapper). If not, you may want to look into
pulling down the iso images for one of the unofficial FC4 updates that
