Is it just me??
I've noticed, on several machines (PC, laptop, netbook) that if
the machine has no connection, or thinks it has none, the gpk function
claims there are no updates; but if I doubt that and run yum update, it
may immediately get over a hundred -- or at least report a failure to
Couldn't gpk do the same??

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
The full messages is:
dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: VBoxVMM.so: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
The VBoxVMM.so file is in the same directory as the VirtualBox.so file.
linux-gate.so.1 => (0x00bec000)
libXinerama.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXinerama.so.1 (0x00110000)
libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 (0x00961000)
VBoxVMM.so => /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxVMM.so (0xb7625000)...
shows its in the correct dir.
This thread suggests it has something to do with glibc:
This thread suggests it has been fixed:
If all of this information is correct will it soon become part of the
FC13 yum update stream?

Hi LTSP/Fedora Community.
(1st let me say "Sorry for the X-Posting to multiple Lists")
I would like to take this opportunity to say that Myself and a friend
have stepped up and I will now take over trying to keep LTSP in Fedora
Current with the upstream.
@ the end of last week I was given access to the LTSP Package on Fedora.
I have the src of ltsp-5.2.4 and am in the process of getting this into
and .rpm for Fedora 13 & Fedora 14 (x86 & x86_64).
This is going to take a little bit of time to get this release into an
.rpm, but we hope to have this done within the next week or so...
I first need to get my head around how the current version is packaged
and then we should be able to get the new version packaged the same way
to try and make this all as seamless as possible.

I'd like to install openshot. As it is not available in any repo I
picked the rpm package from here.
Unfortunately it needs python2.6, giving me the following error:
mlt-python-0.5.4-1.fc14.x86_64 requires python(abi) = 2.6
openshot-1.2.2-1.fc13.noarch requires python(abi) = 2.6
I'm using f14 so there's only python2.7 in the repos. Where could I
Before (fedora 10) the default file /etc/crontab was not empty.
On my new fedora13 it is just almost empty.
So I guess that the cron files are never run and there is probably a
tool to manage it.
Could you guide me ?

To the Fedora community:
I have upgraded one of my machines to F13 in expectation of F12 hitting
end of life. For the most part, no problems, but I do see a question.
Before I send email to GNU gcc, I wanted to make sure I understood
Fedora's plan of action.
The install DVD and yum updates have g++ 4.4.4. GNU's home page is
listing the latest on that minor as 4.4.5. I don't see pdf docs for
4.4.4, only 4.4.5. I wanted to find out if the F13 line was going to
upgrade to 4.4.5 before I started asking GNU gcc folks about where the
archives of old pdf man pages were.
My feeling is that if I use 4.4.5 docs, I should be okay for running
4.4.4, but I couldn't see in the gcc update docs whether I was missing
something or not.
Thanks in advance,
ps: what g++ is F14 going to have?
i tried to create sub-directories in a cgroups mount.
I tried the following:
# mkdir test
# cd test
# echo 0 > cpuset.mems
# echo 0 > cpuset.cpus
# cat memory.use_hierarchy
# mkdir subtest
mkdir: cannot create directory `subtest': Invalid argument
So it did not work. Several tutorials mention a hierarchy or subgroups would be possible, but in none it was descibed how to manage this.
Could this feature be disabled in the kernel or somewhere else?

I need to vent... I'm getting frustrated with Linux. Well, not Linux
per se, and not Fedora, but the whole experience part of things.
I desperately need to do something about the audio system in my car.
Its got a head unit that doesn't have an aux in, nor does it support
mp3s, etc. It needs to be replaced ASAP.
I also need navigation, desperately.
Its been that way for a while. I considered doing a car PC. I didn't
like all the engineering required to do that, so I nixed it. I
considered embedding a HP Tablet in the dash. I took a close look at
them and nixed it due to display issues, heat, etc.
So I've been waiting and waiting. I considered buying a dedicated head
unit with nav but the screens are too small and they seem to go out of
date faster than bread on the counter.
Along comes the iPad. And it seems to do everything I want. Plays
MP3s. Does nav. Bright screen. Affordable. And if you check youtube,
lots of people have embedded them in cars.
But being an OS guy, I want a machine running Linux, not iOS or whatever
its called. Where is it ? I keep reading stories about dozens of
tablet devices running Linux/Android/Meego on Slashdot, but where are
While I have your attention, I also own a Nokia N900 phone. Right now
its running Maemo, which works, but is hardly what one would call
elegant. Actually, there are some things that don't work, but that is
another story. Nokia is saying they will be shipping Meego in October.
I have my fingers crossed.
Another thing I am waiting on is KDE 4.6. I am pretty disappointed by
KDE 4.5 I know it was a bug fix release, but I expected more.
At this point I REALLY have to applaud Apple. They really seem to have
their act together.
The various vendors in the Linux camp really need to get their butts in
gear and start delivering. Hardware companies need to get their
tablets OUT into the market. Nokia et al need to get Meego OUT and get
some nice apps written for it. (Have you looked at the iPad and iPhone
app store lately ?) And the KDE camp needs to finish delivering on
their vision for what KDE 4 is supposed to be.
I wait, growing more impatient day by day.
F12 updated FF to version 3.5.15, however, when you start up FF on F12
it tells you that FF 3.5 is out of date and you should instead download
If FF 3.5 is out of date why continue to update it? Why not replace it
with version 3.6?
I would like to grant access to audio to certain users other
than the one currently login physically / on console. I tried to
add all those users to the group pulse-access, pulse, and audio,
but it does not work. I still get this error:
$ paplay /usr/share/sounds/gnome/default/alerts/sonar.ogg
Connection failure: Connection refused
pa_context_connect() failed: Connection refused
Anybody know how to setup this?
