Re: Yum failing me...



I installed smart, and done a smart upgrade. It downloaded all of the
files and installed up to gnome-games and locked up on me. After restart
I get:

"error: 'rpm' python module is not available"

Now I cannot use Yum, Smart and Up2date.

Any suggestions?

Another one here: I've got exactly the same problem on a laptop using
the snd_intel8x0 driver. First I thought it was about Rhythmbox not
processing the cpu speed changes (speedstep) correctly, but since then
I've found out it happens without speed changes too.
I think you're right it's when the CPU load spikes.
It's happening in XMMS too, but with different results (sound goes
silent).

My current guess is it's a bug in the sound driver.
Please post your sound card details (and lsmod output, I'm interested
which driver you use).

You don't need the full kernel source to build the nvidia drivers.

# yum install kernel-devel

and then try building your drivers again. That should be sufficient.

Of course. The idea is to provide a place to 'find' these sites. So
that in one's spare time one could visit them and surf around in
firefox. The intent is to make firefox (or opera or konquerer or any
other browser) a larger percent of total browser share for that site.
So when the webmaster looks at stats, he will see the need to support
these browsers.

I also am organizing sections on standards compliance, and suggestions
for writing to these webmasters. Links to firefox and opera will be
provided, as well as news regarding developments in browsers.

Me too (proftpd). I occasionally get files dumped in /incoming but the
poor kiddies can't download it from anywhere :-)

What the OP probably needs to do is:

# chcon -R -t ftpd_anon_rw_t /path/to/upload/directory

(see "man ftpd_selinux").

Not that I know of, but I do recall issues with the ftp servers for
major bits of software being compromised and the source code being
tampered with there. That's why it's a good idea always to check GPG
signatures when provided for tarballs you may download.

Hi list,
Once again my FC4 box (Duron 1200mHz, 512 ram) has crawled to a halt.
I quickly top'ed and found a process prelink that varied between
74%-98% CPU usage.

 PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
 5202 root      39  19 11724 9280  536 R 89.9  1.9   0:23.59 prelink

So I googled for prelink and now know that it helps preload libraries
so that progreams can start faster. Which is senseable because the
machine started slowing down when I clicked 'manage bookmarks' in
firefox, which opens another program. My question is, what can I do to
prevent this from happening again? Do I have to ust cross my fingers
every time I open a new program?

Could this be related to the fact that I have no swap partition? I
know that I should probably add one, I guess that I've just been too
lazy to learn how. Will adding a swap partition make the machine less
sluggish? For this 512 ram machine, I was thinking of adding a 2 gig
swap partition.

I've also notices that on occasion i have a similar (but not prelink)
"problem": the machine is crawling to a halt, the load can go up
like crazy (10 or 20) briefly and return to normal after a while. I am
doing things that take resources, e.g. once i was loading big (1kx2k)
images using xv, and another time compiling a large project. To me
it seemed as if it was not able to figure out how to efficiently manage
the swap. Overal, i'm not impressed with my new FC4system (which
ran RH9 quite allright before).

I think it's probably worth trying a kmail list for this. I don't use
kmail myself so I don't know if this is an underlying issue with your
POP server (which I doubt) or a kmail configuration error.

No, it's a "transaction set" run. These are yum shell commands - yum has
its own shell that you can access using "yum shell".

Yeah, I didn't want to be a jerk about it, but in other OS's,
including FC3, the machine was real snappy. FC4 is by far the most
sluggish OS that I've tried, but as I haven't set up a swap partition,
I did not want to blame FC4 just yet. But I know that a lot of people
complain that is is sluggish.

Side note: what is the general opinion about disabling CUPS, so that
it will not start up when I start the computer? I don't have a
printer, and it also seems like a resource hog.

center 
changes or smething else. Now onwards I will take particular note.

Subject: Shock system lockup!
To: For users of Fedora Core releases <fedora-list redhat com>

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed

Can anyone help? I have had my system lockup twice now in the last week,

I am most shocked! Both occasions the system has blown out my X session,

and then locked completly forcing me to hard reset the system. I cannot 
reproduce the error, the only apps I was using are Thunderbird, Firefox 
and terminal I am using KDE. Linux tux 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp #1 SMP Fri 
Jul 15 01:05:24 EDT 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The system is a Tyan twin AMD opteron 64 system (2.6Ghz) with 2 GB ram.
The system is upto date with patches.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil.
