Fedora 8 - Common Bugs and Known Issues


As usual,


Let me know if there are other common issues (with a reference to the bugzilla report) and if there are any known workarounds to them. Just add them yourself if you have wiki write access and we will review them periodically. Thanks for your assistance.

=== CD/DVD Install Hangs ===

There appears to be an issue between ISOLINUX and certain BIOSes where the USB keyboard does not work at the boot menu. This can be worked around by holding down the "shift" key during bootup to force the bootloader into text mode.

[http://bugzilla.redhat.com/239585 Bug 239585] - On certain systems, the CD/DVD may hang during boot with message "Ready". Most of the bugs that caused this are thought to be fixed.

=== Sun Java Bug ===

[https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=254144 Bug 254144] Fedora 8 includes [http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki//Main_Page IcedTea], a free and open source derivative of OpenJDK. Users trying to install Sun Java might run across a bug with the Sun JVM that makes it incompatible with the newer libX11 included in Fedora 8.

Workaround is [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=254144#c14 documented]. We highly recommend using IcedTea instead.

=== Suspend/Resume Problem With Nvidia cards ===

Suspend option in the menu has been deliberately disabled in this release on systems with Nvidia cards since the default "nv" Xorg driver from Nvidia has a number of problems in handling of suspend and resume correctly. If you wish to override this default, add a file that contains ALLOW_NV_SUSPEND="yes" under /etc/pm/config.d

=== NetworkManager cannot connect to EAP-TLS secured wireless networks ===

[https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=323371 Bug 323371] - The !NetworkManager 0.7 snapshot included in Fedora 8 cannot connect to networks that use encrypted certificate files for authentication. A fix will be available soon.

=== NetworkManager fails to see wireless networks with Intel 3945 chipsets ===

[https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=319071 Bug 319071] If you have the Intel 3945 wireless chipset, you may experience trouble finding and associating with wireless networks in NetworkManager. Try adding

{{{options iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=1

to /etc/modprobe.conf

=== Cannot start ssh: Service will not start after installation of the x86_64 version ===

[https://bugzilla.redhat.com/364971 Bug 364971] - /usr/sbin/sshd: Permission denied

This issue should be fixed by updating to the latest selinux-targeted-policy which is greater than selinux-policy-targeted-3.0.8-44.fc8
