wifi broken: D-Link wl54 usb



Greetings:

Whenever I update beta Live CD, Snapshot 1 Live CD, or fc10 to full update, I lose my wifi...

Packages are:
1) kernel-2.6.29.1-70
2) NetworkManager*-0.7.1
3) zd1211-firmware-1.4-2

It was working when kernel-2.6.29.1-56 was installed.  Can anybody help me or tell me what to do to possible fix it?  My real e-mail address is: robhealey1 gmail com

Sincerely,
Rob

The latest rawhide /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz file shows up
looking like a bad swatch of carpet with vomit stains when
grub tries to display it :-).

I thought splash images were restricted to 14 colors (or
some number around there), this image has 255 colors according
to identify (ImageMagick command).

I've been having some minor issues with the proprietary Flash on Rawhide
(32-bit).

It seems that whenever I make a flash file fullscreen, Firefox crashes.
When running it through GDB, I get the following printed out just prior
to the backtrace starting:

*** glibc detected *** /usr/lib/firefox-3.1b3/firefox: free(): invalid
pointer: 0xa4958b00 ***

Is this possibly related to the recent malloc changes in glibc?

I would like to get a sense of how many people are experiencing the same
crash. From conversation with others in #fedora-qa, it seems to be
pretty widespread. It can be easily tested by visiting any video site
(youtube, megavideo etc.), opening a video, and clicking the 'enlarge'
or 'fullscreen' button.

I should note that I used this same version of Flash (10.0.22.87) with
no fulllscreen issues on Ubuntu prior to beginning to test Rawhide.

There is an existing bug in bugzilla about it, to which I've added my
information. However, it doesn't seem to be drawing a lot of attention,
and I think this is a fairly important bug to be quashed, since so many
people use the proprietary flash.

Here is the bugzilla link:

Thank you:

Did "smoltSendProfile -a

Using the information on the bottom, gave
" Error: Critical: New versions of smolt use a public UUID. Yours is:   pub_165cffbb-6c02-46d3-84e5-f81db90bcd53"

Using this new number, gave a page. If this is accessable by others,
I have no idea. Perhaps some admin settings would be needed.

Using the admin password given, gave another "Error: Critical...." but I don't have any other then the one supplied.

The graphical smolt-app is clearly failty.

That's the trouble with closing bugs as soon as they are fixed,

hi,

The last composed email was done with CPU-scaling 800 MHz, cable connected,
and this time "send" did work. It is behaving differently then on Wifi.

Closing a tab in Firefox, froze up the computer. Tried everything to kill
the application. ( sure would like a kill-application as under TWM ! )
Nothing worked, accept power off button.

But this scaling issue looks like nonsense: - it should behave like a similar
cpu with lower crystal frequency. It should not depend on application you
are running.

Either my understanding is wrong, or here are some serious faults.

Some of the sticky response, stealing of mouse, is back when running on
cable.

( I need to recheck it at 2GHz, just to tired of all the problems for one
day )

Nathan,

You don't have to install or remove anything at all except the above
package.

1 - Just download it from above (as that should be the most updated one,
and yes it's beta, not official release yet).

2 - untar the package above from the location it's in.

3 - copy the extracted .so file to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ dir.

4 - Start firefox and your all set.

I cant understand the problem. I have a hdradeon 3450 (256meg) card, and
everything works just fine at higher resolutions above 1024x768. I have
not tested lower resolutions, but expect that there may be some problems
at the 800x600 level. (Just surmising).  My driver is fglrx (vendor
supplied)

Hello everyone,
When I opening the firefox in Workspace1, then turn to Workspace2 and open
the Terminal. While the Terminal is opening, turn back to Workspace1. As a
result, Terminal is opened in Workspace1 only. It's the first time I use
Fedora 10(also Linux), so I am not sure whether it's a bug or not. Do
someone meet the same scene?
PS:The Fedora is running on the Sun VirtualBox.

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

Has anyone been able to get audio working in a fully updated Fedora 11
Beta virtual machine guest?

I have tried on vmware server 2.0 (win vista and rhel 5.3 hosts), vmware
fusion 2.0.4 (10.5 host), virtualbox 2.2.0, and parallels desktop 4.0.

The furthest I get working audio is doing a clean installation of a
Fedora 11 Beta guest. As soon as the kernel and pulseaudio are updated
everything stops working; sound skips and hangs... nothing works. Fully
updating a system doesn't resolve the problem.

I did file a bug in bugzilla regarding my experience with the vmware
products, however it was closed... twice. I have since gone on to try
virtualbox and parallels with similar results. I won't have a chance to
try a kvm guest until tomorrow at the earliest.

Simply updating pulseaudio on a cleanly installed F11 Beta system (i.e.
yum -y update pulseaudio) doesn't seem enough to break the system,
although doing an update of pulseaudio and the kernel does (yum -y
update pulseaudio kernel)

Either booting the original kernel, or removing pulseaudio fixes the
playback however removing pulseaudio isn't really an option anymore
because it breaks the new volume control applet, with the old gnome
volume control applet deprecated, not to mention it is impossible to
configure any audio options with the graphical tools at that point either.

The bug I filed is here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=494747
