1) Your oldest bug is about three weeks old. The other three are three
days old. The oldest bug did receive attention but I do not believe that
you supplied the requested information from what I read.

2) In that oldest bug you said that you have a pre-release of Fedora 11,
which would be the development branch known ad Rawhide, running on your
production machine. That does not make good sense.

Might I suggest that you install a release version of Fedora. I would
suggest Fedora 10 as Fedora 9 will EOL in a little over a month? that
way your production machine can still do it's job and you can have more
time to research your problem.

I say 'your problem' because it also appears that no one else has this
problem. At least not that I can see.

Good luck.
