Yum messed up again.

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: geronimo-specs = 1.0-0.M2.2jpp_7fc is needed

I get that when i $yum update.  Maybe I'm thinking wrong but if yum
update won't work then I won't be able to update everything and/or
anything that is remotely related to whatever has the missing dep.
Correct?

This isn't "yum messed up", it's "some of the yum repositories you're
looking at are messed up". And "messed up" could simply be "temporarily out
of sync; try again later".

In this case, it looks like geronimo-specs is updated, but
geronimo-specs-compat is not.

First thing I'd try is "yum upgrade geronimo-specs" instead of "yum update
geronimo-specs". This pulls in package-obsoletes information, which is
marginally slower but is usually what you want done.

If that doesn't work, check to make sure you need the compat package. If
not, remove it.

Re: Dynamic DNS and failed journal

    The thing is, when bind chroots, it should have writeable access to
    its own /var/named, which as far as the host is concerned, is
    actually /var/named/chroot/var/named. 

Why should it have write access there? It doesn't by default, and 
doesn't normally need it (remember that bind is running as user named, 
not as root).

    its needs to know where to load its zone information from, ie.
    /var/named, then chroots. 

No, it chroots first. So you should put your DDNS zone file in 
/var/named/chroot/var/named/slaves (I expect you have a symlink 
/var/named/slaves -> /var/named/chroot/var/named/slaves btw).

    I cant see how that should be a problem for bind to write to its own
    /var/named directory. Anyway I tried it, and changed options
    directory /var/named to /var/named/slaves .... naturally, bind
    couldnt find zone information ... 

Don't change the main directory in the options clause, change the file 
location for your DDNS zone in its zone clause.

So you have something like:

zone "example.com" IN {

Need help. Wireless does not work after kernel upgrade

I had ndiswrapper and wireless networking working on my eMachines laptop 
running Fedora Core 4 with kernel 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4. This afternoon I 
upgraded to kernel 2.6.17-1.2142_FC4. I upgraded ndiswrapper to 
ndiswrapper-1.18-1.lvn4 and 
kernel-module-ndiswrapper-2.6.17-1.2142_FC4-1.18-1.lvn4.

lspci shows my wireless network adapter:
00:0c.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g 
Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

I still see the wireless driver with 'ndiswrapper -l':

Installed drivers:
netbc564                driver installed, hardware present

When I try to bring up the wireless interface, I get

[root <at> proteus log]# ifup eth1
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
Failed to bring up eth1.

In the messages I list below, I see references to "bcm43xx". Was there a 
native driver developed between kernels 2.6.15 and 2.6.17? Should I be 
making use of that? How do I do so? If not, how do I rescue my ndiswrapper?

Thanks!

Can it be a problem with dynamic linking of libraries?  I have not tried to recompile new versions of openssl.  The last time I made a mistake and remove libssl.so.5 and libcrypto.a (two important libraries needed by rpm, yum , wget and others).  Thanks to you guys in this forum, I received a copy of the missing libraries and could use utilities again.  Thanks in advance for all help

You have to set up Linux to use the WEP key as well. Without the
proper key, your router is not giving you DHCP information.
Basically, it is not letting you on the network. I am not sure what
the wireless setups tools are on FC4, but if nothing else, you can
use iwconfig to get your interface up and running, at least until
you reboot, or someone tells you the correct tool to use on FC4.

Usually when there are any problems, such as an unclean shutdown because 
of power loss, there are inode corrections. It looks like your 
filesystem checked clean.

You can read the documentation on the system with man or info or do a 
search on e2fsprogs which contain the packages used to maintain the ext2 
and ext3 filesystems.
http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net/ext2.html

Actually, I'm using the first (onboard) one for skype, and an audigy 2
