Gnome 3.2.1 Freezing

I'm having a problem with Gnome 3.2.1 freezing, on average once a day. I have
been unable to figure out why or how to reproduce the problem in a
predictable manner. It just happens when I'm interacting with the computer;
Sometimes when I launch an application, sometimes when I'm in 'Activities'
view... no apparent common denominator.

When this happens, the Gnome desktop just freezes, with the exception of the
mouse pointer - I can move it around. I can Ctrl-Alt-F1, login to a terminal,
and see that my processes are still running. When I Ctrl-Alt-F7 back to my
graphical desktop, it is completely black with the mouse pointer still
moveable. If I'm running my VM [W7 as a VMware Player 4.0.4 guest], I can RDP
to it from another computer and see that it is running fine. I can SSH to the
host machine, and my SMB shares are working fine.
 have to remote in to properly shut down the VM, and then either 'init 3 /
init 5', Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, or just issue a reboot command. I don't see
anything obvious in /var/log/messages.

Is there an *extension* from sensors?  That is what you want.

Perhaps
<https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/336/hardware-sensors-indicator/>
- or - 
<https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/82/cpu-temperature-indicator/>

applets are gone, dead, salted, burned, and buried in GNOME3.

Installing GNOME LiveCD (fedora) to hard drive?

Dear GNOME community,

Is it at all possible to install the gnome LiveCD (fedora flavor) to a
hard drive? I've tried downloading Fedora's anaconda, although it
fails after the hard drive has been partitioned, saying "Unable to
read group information: No Groups Available in any repository", even
after I tried switching the repos to default Fedora 17 repos.

If anyone could help, that would be great.

Thanks,

mount an sdhc card as read/write

OK,

I am running fedora 17, and it has gnome3.  When I plug in a sdhc card, and I want to be mounted as read write, so
that I can
make boot image for my raspberry-pi.  Any idea's of how to do this

Thanks

Re: mount an sdhc card as read/write

Look at the side of the card, there should be a switch to block writing. Make sure this hardware block is set to the right place.

If I insert an SD in my reader it is automatically mounted as
read-write.

Is the read-only slide-lock on the card set?

What is the filesystem on the card?  Perhaps it is actually permissions.

Does dmesg or /var/log/messages show any errors or warnings concerning
the card / card-reader?

mount a sdhc card as read/write

OK,

This should not be hard but in gnome3 it seem to be hidden.

I have an sdhc card which I want to use for my rasberry-pi and I want to mount it read write.
I am running fedora 17 and when I plug them in they always mount read write.  How do I get the SDHC cards to mount
read write.

Thanks
