I am facing a problem booting Fedora 17: the pc freezes unless I use
"acpi=off" in kernel parameters, in grub.
If I use acpi=off, fedora boots and works ok, but cannot power off the
pc after a shutdown.
How can I solve this issue?
At home I have a slow internet connection, Thus, I would like to
prepare an update but only download the packages to another
machine and then copy the file on a stick to make the update from
How can I do it?

How can I reduce the number of installed kernels to only one on my
Fedora 17 systems? I'm asking about automated approach without the need
of manual package removal.
I haven't compiled new kernels myself for a very long time so I don't
think I'll need more then one kernel installed.
Now, I'm using package-cleanup --oldkernel but it's still cleaning up
the mess that I want to avoid.
today I noticed this:
| # yum check-update
| Geladene Plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
| adobe-linux-x86_64 | 951 B
| google-chrome | 951 B
What is the meaning of the exclamation marks on the line starting with
How can I fix the KDE Desktop on a FC16 system.
I set up this for an in-law and today that I went to update it, I noticed
that the desktop says on the upper right hand corner "Copy of Desktop" and
none of the usual desktop icons is around.
How can I fix this? I 've been googling around but have not found anything
useful yet, maybe I am not using the right keywords.

I want to bind mouse wheel scroll and cursor keys with modifier keys in
screen but I am not sure what key code or termcap capability to
use. This is what I have tried so far with no luck.
For mouse wheel scroll:
bindkey -k SF copy
bindkey -k SR copy
bindkey -k sf copy
bindkey -k sr copy
bindkey -k cs copy
bindkey -k kF copy
bindkey -k kR copy
The following works for now: bindkey -k k8 copy (for Fn 8)
+ Here I expect to switch window with C-o <left/right>
bind \033[C next
bind \033[D prev
+ Here I expect to switch window with C-<left/right>
bindkey -d ^[[1;5D prev
bindkey -d ^[[1;5C next
+ This one was just to see if binding arrow keys work. I expected just
<left/right> to switch windows.
bindkey -d ^[[D prev
bindkey -d ^[[C next
This works however:
bindkey -k kr next
bindkey -k kl prev
What am I missing here? Thanks for any pointers,
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
My short term goal is to set up resolv.conf the way I want without
disabling network manager.
I set up a config file for dhclient, but it turns out that NetworkManager
runs dhclient with the configfile set to one it generates insteqad of
the normal one used by dhclient. For the first wireless interface the
file is named /var/run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf .
Is there a way to control what is in that file using NetworkManager
Just thought about asking you guys what the actual name is, Linux or
GNU/Linux (In our Bangladeshi community, we're really divided on this
I personally prefer Linux , what do you think?

The problem was that the firewall on my FC14 fileserver had port 111
The mount on my FC17 client does not use sunrpc, but the automount does.
After allowing port 111 everything worked fine, with everything default in
the autofs control files, so no extra nfs parameters.
