Note that questions have been asked about how long flash will last if
used for swap. (But the worst thing that can happen is that the machine
crashes and the flash becomes unusable).

Hope this helps,

James.

No, since you don't say what system you're using, or what desktop, or
what burning software, or even the model of your LG unit, any of which
might be relevant. Neither do you say what actually happens when you try
to burn a DVD. An error message? A failed burn? Nothing? Does it matter
if it's DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-R?

I also have an LG (GSA-4163B), use KDE 4.2 under Fedora 10 and burn
using both k3b and growisofs. Everything works.

Has anyone actually compared the speed of pendrives versus hard disks
when used for swap?

By which I meant “if the system is to act as a Domino MTA”, not for the
purposes of delivering Linux system email.

Sorry if that wasn’t clear.

What does that mean exactly? If it claims to burn it, but
then fails to verify, there is a known problem with K3B
never being able to verify correctly even though the burn
worked.

I've been doing verifies by comparing checksums of the files
burned versus the files from the DVD and so far the actual
burns have worked fine.

No doubt, but the address space randomization in the kernel
happens every time any program is run and loads the shared
libs at different random addresses without regard to any
base address the prelinker may have assigned.

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

My gpg key expired last month and I didn't notice it till today. I used
gpg --edit-key to extend the expiration date by a year, then I sent it
to one of the key servers, subkeys.pgp.net. Is this an acceptable
practice? Google searches yielded a few comments suggesting that an
expired key could be revoked and a new key generated. I'm unsure what
accepted practice is.

Thanks

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

I've just got an HP g50 laptop with Vista and a Vista recovery 
partition. The g50 uses INsydeh2o as a sort of open firmware that 
interfaces with the bios.

I'd like to shrink the existing ntfs partition and dual boot fedora. But 
what about the insydeh2o? Is this part of system rom, so I just install 
  grub as usual? Has anybody set up a dual boot with insydeh2o?

On Gnome the keyboard type is chosen in
System>>Preferences>>Hardware>>Keyboard under the tab Layout (along
with the stuff you mention). So maybe you can look for something
similar? In a thread recently someone mentioned KDE had some setting
under Language Settings, whereas intuitively it should be under
Keyboard settings. So maybe you can look for it there?

Just a wild guess ...

You may want to install and run preupgrade.
