Sorry, I was trying to get the unsubscribe command and did not realize my message went to the list. :-)
I am no longer using Fedora, so was trying to unsubscribe myself from the list.

Thanks,

You need to add it to an LVM2 volume group, and then fsck the logical volume.
Your best chance is to use a backup superblock (see man e2fsck) but if the fsck
completed, it's probably wiped out.

Hi Dan,

I've run Compiz on 64MB cards. I suspect you could go lower as long as
the memory was at least several times the size of the framebuffer.

Chipset support is really the issue -- almost any contemporary video
card with at least tens of megabytes of RAM should be able to support
Compiz (or kwin's effects) *if* the driver for the card's chipset
supports the COMPOSITE extension.

The proper way to do it is to read a *key* from a USB drive at boot time. In F8
it didn't take too much hacking in /etc/rc.sysinit to load the USB storage
modules, wait a few seconds to detect the drive, mount it, and then do the luks
magic to unlock the LVM partition. I haven't tried in F9. It would be really
nice to have this supported by the installer.

The specific commands you need are vgscan and vgchange; access to the
logical volume will be through /dev/mapper/yourVGname-yourLVname
(or /dev/yourVGname/yourLVname) and not /dev/sdb* (which is the raw
partition containing a PV).

(Although the context is different, there are some examples of
vgscan/vgchange usage here:
http://dailypackage.fedorabook.com/index.php?/archives/159-.html )

Some follow-up: running "gnome-mount -v -d /dev/sr0" as root works fine.
However, Nautilus still can't mount the drive as a normal user.

I think you will have to give more details about what you are trying
to do. Normally, you will get the name server information as part of
the DHCP lease. The information will be put in /etc/resolv.conf

Both vim and emacs will create a basic spec for you by simply editing a
non existant spec file.

$ vim new.spec

will create a basic spec file if new.spec does not exist in the current
directory.

However, creating good spec files is a bit of a black art, I am afraid
to say.

You will need to install:

rpmdevtools

and run:

/usr/bin/rpmdev-setuptree

That creates your rpmbuild directory tree.

From there, you will find the field is broad, and the sky is the limit.

There are tools to watch 'make install' to discover what happens and
duplicate it for a %files section for a spec file, but using those tools
is a separate art form in itself.

I have found that most apps using 'configure' (automake) tools will have
fairly easy to read install: sections in the generated Makefile.

The rpm spec file: %files section allows for directories, making it easier.

So basically, make a generic .spec file, copy the source tarball to
~/rpmbuild/SOURCES, try: rpmbuild -ba my.spec, and watch for errors,
like the naming of the tar ball has to match the versioning specified in
the spec file. Also the directory that the tar ball is extracted into
should match the version.

That is the simplest form.

You will want some references:

http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/index.html

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/drafts/rpm-guide-en/
Look for the section called: Creating the spec file

One last piece of advice:
Always run rpmbuild as your user, and NOT root. If your .spec file
needs root to do something, you are doing it wrong.

Good Luck!

I have used checkinstall, and it will make a 'get you going' spec file, but
the produced spec file is not very nice.

I took the one it made for me (for the software I wanted to package) and
compared it to the one that comes with the kernel from fedora, and made
changes that seemed sane. {I understand reasonably how to do the kernel
compile by hand, so seeing how they did it in the spec file gave me clues to
how to do what I wanted.}

such changes as:
-BuildRoot: /var/tmp/XALTPlcbbmBlCXeZdMMaE/package
+BuildRoot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

just before the %files entry.
+%clean
+rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT




Also the fedora guidelines may point you towards filling in some things you
might not have thought about, and if you follow them might get what ever
package you are making the spec for accepted in fedora faster.

Hi. OP here. Files are all in the same dir. Duplicates obviously not an
issue. Everything is working. Thanks to everyone.

While I'm not sure I can help, there are some questions which might narrow
down your problem:

- Are you sure you have a 64-Bit CPU? Core-Duo is only 32-Bit while
Core-2-Duo is 64-Bit. [1], [2]

- Can you tell us what type of graphics card is built-in to your machine
(Intel, ATI, Nvidia, VIA, ...)?

- Can you clarify what you mean with "why is it the after i install the
grafics of the kubuntu breaks?"? To me that sentence doesn't really make
sense - probably because I'm not a native English speaker. Especially I'm
not sure when Kubuntu breaks. Is it some time during the installation
process or is it after the system was fully installed and working?

I am a native speaker and it still does not make sense.
My guess of what is should would be, "Why is it that after I install
xxxx the graphics of Kubuntu breaks?" I have no idea what xxxx is,
perhaps a video driver?
