You can't. RHN does not nor has it ever supported FC anything. Besides why
would you want to? (its a rhetorical question, do not answer it I do not really
care) :-) You have a perfectly good updating system with yum. All you need to do
is READ one of the many documents on it and away you go. It is not really that
hard as long as you are willing to take a few minutes to learn about it.

To: For users of Fedora Core releases <fedora-list redhat com>

I have a real interesting problem.  Note this worked great before I had to reformat/reinstall.  I have a Netgear Wireless G PC Card for my laptop. I have the madwifi driver compiled and installed.  I put this in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:

iwconfig ath0 essid Qf734EdTu8W
iwpriv ath0 mode 3
iwconfig ath0 key 684D083EECE11F6DC18D187749
iwconfig ath0 192.168.1.13  255.255.255.0
route add default gw 192.168.1.1

However, when I boot into Fedora, it doesn't connect unless I take out the PC Card, put it back in, and then give it the essid and iwpriv commands again.  It then connects.  Anyone have any ideas?  I thought perhaps I'm missing something in my custom kernel (2.6.13) I made. But I have all modules for PC Card support and such.

yum does NOT delete the downloaded rpms. There is a weekly cron job that calls
yum to delete them. Simply disable it. Look at /etc/cron.weekly/yum*

Yum will not copy it to the other box. You need to set up something to
do that for you.

Thanks Tom, you're right.
And I'm glad yum doesn't delete them.

I tried running system-config-display from the prompt. I get a blank

RedHat Enterprise Linux is the "production" version. It is open source
except for their artwork and trademarked name and only available with
paid support. The Centos project http://www.centos.org rebuilds
the open source components into a distribution available without
support.

Hi,

I have just installed FC4 (minimum install) on a computer I intend to
setup as a server.

When I went to enable the NFS, I can't get it to work properly.
The important error message is :=

# /etc/init.d/nfs start

And on the client use

# cat /etc/hosts.deny

# cat /etc/hosts.allow

If I use exportfs to bypass the /etc/exports file with
# exportfs -o rw 192.168.0.0/16:/mnt/storage

and on the client use
#! mount mini-cl:/mnt/storage storage

Every thing works fine.

Any help appreciated.

Subject: Can't type in Gnome in FC4 after yum update
Date: Thu, 01 Sep 2005 22:34:54 -0500
To: For users of Fedora Core releases <fedora-list redhat com>

I just did an update in FC4 and picked up all the new X11 stuff. When I
boot into Gnome and open a terminal session, gedit, or other application
like that, I can't type. The cursor doesn't move and no letters appear
on screen.

I can type in the login box to get logged in, and I can type when I need
to use a root level application. However, that's about all.

If I switch to KDE, everything operates normally.

Is anyone experiencing anything like this?

To: fedora-list redhat com

evince, and other postscript/pdf display programs are extremely slow
over remote X displays. This is on a 10M/bit switched network.

ghostview in FC1 also was also slow compared to what it was around RH 7
but the new evince (0.4.0-1.2 and older) are so slow that they are not
usable for remote displays. kghostview and kpdf are slightly better
but still slow.

Other programs like ooffice and even "gs -sDEVICE=x11" work very well
with remote X.

Anyone else seeing this?

Ok, since you asked...

The proprietary ATI driver, as obtained from Livna, works for my laptop
(Fujitsu N3510, X300 64MB video RAM, 1280x800). 3D performance is much
better than expected (i.e. better than my desktop: Athlon 2600+ w/
Nvidia GeForce 5200) and TV out works as well. I haven't tried an
external VGA monitor yet.

The only thing I haven't gotten to work is ACPI resume, but the complete
lack of ACPI action scripts in FC4 has me a bit lost there anyway. Ifished a few scripts off the web but they all fail somewhere else. To be
fair, I haven't put much effort into it yet, since it's not high
priority for me. Anyway, this is the one thing I found not to work with
the ATI driver.

Hope this helps,
Steffen.

Subject: FC4 USB opti-mouse goes wild
Date: Fri, 2 Sep 2005 00:53:54 -0400
To: For users of Fedora Core releases <fedora-list redhat com>

I have a Logitech M-BT85 optical USB mouse (with wheel). It works
fine with FC4 [Linux version 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4] most of the time. See
lsusb output below FWIW.

Occasionally, when I'm mousing around doing nothing special, the
cursor takes off like crazy across the screen and lands somewhere at
the edge. Really annoying! My mouse preferences are all set to
middle values.

Have I got a bad mouse, or do we have USB / driver problems? Is it a
known problem? Should I declare! a bug?

Thanks for any clues.

1   With 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4(smp) usbkey 128MB is detected and mounted even if inserted before boot.
2   However there is a different problem (that is continuing with all previous kernels) -
21    If a second usbkey is inserted it does not show up as a new desktop icon. I can mount the second key manually.
22   Strangely if the two usbkeys have different format like one fat (default OEM) and other fat32 (forced formatted) they both show up on desktop at least when login is root.
 3  Suggestions sought to make usbkeys work in default mode.
Thanks
