Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
I have a terebyte sata drive that I need to securely wipe clean. It
originally had 2 partitions. I deleted them using `fdisk', rebooted,
and then as root ran
shred -vz /dev/sdd
The drive is capable of about 60MB/sec, but shred is only "shredding"
about 25MB every 5 seconds according to its output. Since the default
number of passes is 25, this works out to about 5 days.
The `shred' process is running at 100% CPU, presumably computing
the special random patterns for erasure. Since I have 4 CPUs
would creating 4 unformatted partions on the drive and then running
shred -vz /dev/sdd1
shred -vz /dev/sdd2
shred -vz /dev/sdd3
shred -vz /dev/sdd4
in parallel cut my time? Would be just as secure?
I am running alpine-2.00-1.fc10.x86_64 on an F10 box. If I get a message with
an html or file attachment and I try to open it, I get an error that
"Firefox can't find the file at /tmp/img--46112.htm" The correct program opens
up but I always get the can't find file errors. If the message contains a URL
then it comes up and displays properly.
Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this problem?

I've tried all the tricks on this list a/o the troubleshooting
site, over and over. I finally gave up : downloaded and burned a DVD --
and *still* hit the catch-22 error, with too little space in mnt/sysimage/
Can I simply delete all of /boot, or everything in it? All of
grub.conf? Or what? It's going to be a royal pain if I have to burn all
my data to media, and then sneakermail that back onto each machine,
instead of just upgrading f11 ....

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
I there a way to test new GIMP 2.7/2.8 in Fedora? I looked in Rawhide
repos and I still see only 2.6x versions there. Any plans to put 2.7 in
Rawhide repost for testing purposes?

Thanks to Chris Smart, Peter Danenberg and others, I have been able to
install Fedora 12 as the sole O/S on my Macbook Air (first
However the wirless networking is not enabled.
I am following the instructions in
There was no wireless device shown in the network Configuration, so I
clicked New and added a device for hardware Apple Airport.
I also tried adding wireless device on the Hardware tab (eth0), but although
it allows me to do this, after I save and then reopen the Network
Configuration, the hardware only shows a device pan0 of Type Ethernet
(which was there from the start). It does appear on the Devices tab
(it didn't originally until I added it), but has staus of inactive,
and no means to activate it.
However, even after restarting the computer, the wireless icon on the
panel says there are no network devices available.
So I tried removing the device from control by NetworkManager, and
activated it manually. But then I get:
Device eth0 does seem to be present, delaying initalization.
What do I need to do?
If I power down my laptop via the usual KStart->Shutdown means, it can
take up to 4 restart attempts before it fully boots.
It has no problem launching grub and the kernel selection screen. That
it does reliably every time. After that, there are issues.
Twice I will get a back screen with a flashing cursor. Then I will get
an ehci -19 error. Then it will boot properly.
My fscks are fine. I had a block error once, about two weeks ago, but
that was with an older F12 kernel after completely crashing during a
resume from suspend to RAM.
Is anyone else experiencing a problem booting ? Does this sound like a
kernel problem or is my hard drive failing ?
