Fedora Core 2 Release and MPlayer

Hello,

>From what I can tell, FC2 doesn't use XFree86, but, instead, something
called X.ORG.  Does anybody know anything about this?  I want to install
MPlayer, but it uses XFree86.  Is X.org Fedora's implementation of
XFree86?  Do I need to install it in order to compile MPlayer, or will
it be able to us the X.org stuff?

Thanks,
Duane

X.org is a fork of the XFree86 Project after XFree86 changed their 
licensing scheme. mplayer works just fine with X.org's version of X11. 
And no, it's not specific to Fedora/Red Hat.

501C3 restrictions too tight?


Maybe we should abandon our claims to being a 501C3 entity so we can
participate more fully in the legal wars being waged against open source
and free software.

Here is a page by Alan Cox urging LUGs in the UK to get involved in the
upcoming election over software patents.  If I understand the 501C3
restrictions, we could not do the same here.

No longer true. I tried the instructions to install SB live
and load soundfonts. It worked this time! SuSE finally got it right.

BTW, this is only supposed to work with the SB live!  But you used to
be able to get one at discount electronics for $18. Card only. The
consumer kit with big box, instructions and CDROM is not much use for
LINUX users. Installation instructions can be found on the net. As can
the soundfonts.

Can anyone recommend a good set of classical soundfonts in the
form of .SF2 files?

Alan Cox is interested in the EU software patent fight. Unfortunately,
we already have software patents in the US.

My understanding is that a 501c can lobby the state ledgislature
so long as it does not endorse or oppose specific candidates
for office or spend a significant fraction of its budget.

BTW what is email address of the alg board of directors?

I think the 501c3 standing is a great move on the groups part, and I 
fully support staying 501c3. -Matt

Matt,

Maybe you're right, but how, exactly, does it help us?

In this country, individual letters (hand written on notebook paper) to members 
of congress and senators do more than any PAC.

You're kidding, right?

C'mon - this is the United States...  We have the best political system
that money can buy.
