Re: FC8t3 issues

Dear All

here is a grab bag of things I noticed trying out FC8 test 3 + current updates.

Please advise if I should bugzilla any of them:

1) installer: cosmetic redraw bugs on custom partition editor page
   82915/GV/... graphics

Existing bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=289281

2) installer: checking "Additional Fedora Software" when behind a proxy
   hangs anaconda "retrieving mirrorlist" (may timeout?)

Making anaconda proxy aware is raised here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=141988

And RFE here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=125917

My filed bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=324801

3) gdm: cannot log in when using NIS authentication

   pam_unix(gdm:auth): check pass; user unknown

   Old bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=134393

Fix to set USENIS=yes in /etc/sysconfig/authconfig works - why doesn't it
   just use the rules in /etc/nsswitch.conf ?

workaround: setting DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE" in /etc/sysconfig/desktop to run kdm

My filed bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=324811

4) xmms KDE_Window_Open.wav

   ** WARNING **: Failed to open font: "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*"

   requires xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi.noarch to quieten this.

My filed bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=324821

5) hald runs as uid 68 but this has no entry in /etc/passwd ?

Whoops, actually it has "haldaemon".  ps -ef does not list the username
for usernames > 8 chars, so it's defined behaviour, see:


6) lpstat -t lists printers in long format, even if you
   set BrowseShortNames Yes option:

   device for col dunnet: ipp://dunnet:631/printers/col

   when it should be:

   device for col: ipp://dunnet:631/printers/col

compiling a fresh cups from 1.3.3 cups.org source lists short names printers.

This has had a previous incarnation:


which was fixed, apparently. Removing /var/cache/cups/remote.cache as
suggested does indeed fix the problem. However, under some circumstances
the issue still occurs, so:

My filed bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=324851

That's all so far!

Many thanks
