Re: networkmanager



Hi!
 
Good news first, I was successfully able to install Fedora 8 ppc version on my PS3. There are 3 issues right now that i am facing and hope to get all of them resolved.....
 
1.    Whenever I try to shutdown or restart it comes up with the message "System halting" when shutting down and nothing happens, it displays "stand by while the system is restartin...." still nothing happens. I just get a blinking cursor. Eventually in the end I have to restart or shutdown by pressing the power on m PS3 manually.
 
2.    When I try to mount any USB external hard drive, I get a message for "Unable to mount", when i check the details it shows that there was an improper shutdown/restart. This issue could be in turn related to the above issue. Is there any way I could forcefully mount the External USB Hard drive.
 
3.    Thirdly, I do not have an internet connection enabled on my PS3, hence I cannot download and install the YUM Updates. Is there any way that I can manually download the updates and then install them on fedora 8 ppc. This is very important for me as whenever I am trying to install any application such as VLC or any other application it gives me the following:
 

Error while installing VLC rpm (OR any Software for that matter)

 

Unable to retrieve software information

 

Unable to retrieve software information. This could be caused by not having a network connection available.

 

Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again
 
Please remember that I do not have an internet connection enabled on my fedora 8 ppc or on PS3.
 
 
4.     Last but not the least: I get a following error:
 

Error while opening avi/divx/xvid files through Movie Player on fedora 8 ppc

 

The application "Movie Player" requires the following Plugins:

MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder

XVID MPEG-4 decoder

 

The are no plugins for the requested functionality.

Please select the full plugins list in the View menu.

 

An error occurred

The playback of this movie requires the following decoders which are not installed:

MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder

XVID MPEG-4 decoder
 

I would be highly thankful if you get the above issues resolved as they are driving me insane......
 
 
If possible please mention a technical support number on which I could call to get answers to any issue. The number needs to be an international number that I could call as I will be calling from India.
