This guide details the config files and the required adjustments:

      http://www.brennan.id.au/15-System_Printing.html

It also details how to update and install the PPD (PostScript Printer 
Description) file for your printer.

Annoying is it not! All I've done is to comment out its entry in

This sounds suspiciously like you did not install a desktop (KDE, GNOME 
or another desktop.

Which desktop did you install?

USB 2.0 - External hard disk

Hi

My system is a P4/2.8HT, ASUS P4P800VM mobo, 512MB running XP and FC3 dual boot. 

I connected an external 40gb seagate hardisk (2 partitions ext3 and NTFS) via USB 2.0 enclosure under xp and was copying large files (around 700 MB each) to NTFS when I got a delayed write error.  On google found thousands of people having same trouble and no known workable solution yet.  It looked like a windoze issue.

I then booted FC3 and tried copying files to the ext3 partition.  Surprisingly simliar error occured and the copy stopped.  Harddisk was also unmounted.  Surprisingly common behaviour on both os.

QUestion : Is this a common problem also under FC3 (linux itself ?) and how to resolve.  The only way I found a consistently workable soln (stupid soln in fact) was to connect the casing via USB 1.1 hub to the pc.  Slows it down but consistently works.

Please help

Regards
Srini

PS:  Apologies for the long post

Re: How can I complete a nearly finished but interrupted FC3 install?

The problem you're running into is not with the packages that are
installed, but with the lack of your boot loader.  Without a boot
loader, you're not going to get to a point where you can do anything. 
In addition, you may be missing other critical packages.

You're going to have a hard time doing this without a new install.  If
CD 1 is okay, you probably could go ahead and install a very minimal
installation and then download the remaining packages using yum.

This sounds suspiciously like you did not install a desktop (KDE, GNOME
or another desktop.

Which desktop did you install?

Jim

One added thought. This failure to load the dsktop also happened to me 
on a development system. I logged into a terminal as root and ran 
setenforce 0

After running this command, switch back to the GUI and ctl-alt-backspace 
to restart the login manager and X.

This puts SELinux in permissive mode, like someone posted the correct 
function of this command. It will still log avc errors in your 
/var/log/messages file. These can be used to find out why your desktop 
is failing to start and you only get the grey screen and pointer.

Jim

K3B DVD burn and md5sum

Hi

I downloaded the FC4T2 dvd and md5 checked the iso .. identical md5sum, fine so far.  Then I used K3B to burn the image .. I use a BENQ DVD writer under FC3. 

After booting on a new machine when I did a media check it failed.  Anyway I went ahead and installed it and it installed fine, no issues at all.  Out of curiosity I popped in the disc into the writer and issued a md5sum /dev/hda and got a value that was different from the iso md5 .. I popped in the disc on the other machine and did a md5sum /dev/hda again and got an identical value.  But this value is different from the published iso md5.

ANy reasons why this is different (thought the values should be identical) .. maybe same reason the Fedora install media check fails but installs correctly without issues.

Regards
Srini

Date String in rotated Logs

Hi,

I want to have a date string in my rotated logs, so I added
extension .`date +%Y$m%d`
in my /etc/logrotate.conf but it doesn't work. I have still
$LOGFILE.1.gz 

Can I do this via logrotate or have must I run a script via cron after
logrotate runs which renames the .1.gz file?

Regards
