So I guess that is why I'm getting the below error, would that be correct ??

lame "Hark_NatCole.wav" "Hark_NatCole.mp3"  Unsupported data format: 0x0055

I forgot to say that I'm running a X86_64 box and there is no lame.i386 
on my repos.

Hmm!?  "Mpeg Layer 3 Audio" *is* and mp3 file type. The file command
shows this for me:
$ file "my song.mp3"
my song.mp3: MPEG ADTS, layer III, v1, 128 kBits, 44.1 kHz, JntStereo

$ file "my song.wav"
my song.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16
bit, stereo 44100 Hz

my wav file is about 70MB, while the mp3 is about 6.5MB.

The 0x0055 refers to an mp3 file characteristic.

That's a bummer.

APC UPS

Hi All.

I have an APC ES 550 UPS, and am relatively new to Fedora. I have noticed that on moving the mouse pointer across the Toolbar, the bubble: "Computer is running on AC Power, UPS is fully charged (100%)." comes up.

Does this mean that there is an existing UPS Monitoring Programme embedded in Fedora9? If so, can it be accessed to change settings? Will it, in fact, shut down the computer after after a given time, or is it just a visual warning that the computer will just stop when the battery of the UPS has lost all charge?

I look forward to your reply, and thank you in advance.

Regards

NICK

For APC UPSes, I use apcupsd which is available in the Fedora 
repositories.  There is also nut, which is a generic UPS monitor.

I'm pretty sure the gnome power manager is just barely smart enough
to detect the UPS, but can't actually do anything with it.

I did a "yum install apcupsd" and "chkconfig --level 2345 apcupsd on"
to get the apc UPS monitoring software installed, and I have observed
in the logs that the default config will cleanly shutdown my system
after the power is off for a while, but it survives short outages,
so I've never changed the default config.

Fedora-linux and openldap browser -phpldapadmin problem

Dear All phpldapadmin users,

I am a newbie in Fedora Linux System.

Mistakenly the permissions were changed in my system by me.

Though, th permissions have been reset immediately, still I have some problems.

One such problem is related to my phpldapadmin browser files:


Now, before this activity, whenver I used to type http://localhost

I used to get my login page of phpldapadmin and then I used to log in successfully, as usually.

After this all the icons (tools) such as export, import used to appear on the right hand side of the phpldapadmin browser.

Now, it does nt shows up on the right hand side after logging onto the opendla phpldapadmin browser, so I am having this problem.

I wish  you to help me to resolve this problem as soon as possible.

Please let me know which phpldapadmin browser files I must check to resolve this problem.

As per my system the permission of the files are as given below:


[root <at> authdns /]# whereis phpldapadmin
phpldapadmin: /etc/phpldapadmin /usr/share/phpldapadmin

[root <at> authdns /]# cd /etc/phpldapadmin
[root <at> authdns phpldapadmin]# ls -l
total 72
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root apache 23962 2008-01-24 14:04 config.php


[root <at> authdns phpldapadmin]# ls -l
total 52
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root apache   28 2007-12-26 12:17 config -> ../../../../etc/phpldapadmin
drwxr-xr-x  5 root apache 4096 2008-01-24 14:08 htdocs
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root apache  112 2007-12-26 16:25 index.php
drwxr-xr-x  2 root apache 4096 2007-12-26 12:17 lib
drwxr-xr-x 17 root apache 4096 2007-12-26 12:17 locale
drwxr-xr-x  3 root apache 4096 2007-12-26 12:17 templates
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root apache   23 2005-11-12 09:19 VERSION


Please let me are they all correct.

Thanks, jmaan

It will probably do you or anyone who upgrades a system to run
`package-cleanup --orphans' to find old packages no longer resident in
enabled repositories.
