But, but, but... I was trying to find a local plumber to unblock the
drains... ;-)

But being seriously, I counselled some school computer admin a few years
ago not to make half-baked bans that blocked the word "rape" in all
queries, regardless. He might just prevent the one and only attempt
someone made to help themselves after being raped. Some thought does
need to go into how you go about blocking things.

I installed FC7 on mine, and it just worked...

Exact procedures depend on your circumstances. You'll need to tell the
list more details. Probably what wireless hardware you have in your
laptop (sending the output from lspci and dmidecode can help), and
details about your wireless network (does it use encryption, which type,
etc.).

Ok, this problem is
now solved. It involved the use of ISPConfig and
ISPConfig encountered a fedora[7/8] GDM bug that caused "fast-switcher-?"
to run at 100% CPU speed and it blocked Gnome's Login screen, according
to this thread for those who are interested. The temporary fix is to
use KDE's login screen.

Hi Tim,

My Laptop has Dell
Wireless LAN Card. My home network is using
WPA-Personal (PSK) type of encrytion. Hope this helps.

Thank You.
zeeshan.

nice of you to chime in 6 hours after problem is solved

USB 1.1 ports
may or may not supply enough power to an iPod...this can
be googled.

This of course was not his problem.

I don't have
an NTFS drive that I'm willing to connect up just for
experimentation but OP clearly believes that all files on ntfs-3g mount
were listed as root:root and I have no reason to dispute, that has
always been my experience with vfat mounts.

Thus the concept of 'users' and 'mapping', though intriguing, would be
rather pointless for an NTFS filesystem mounted by ntfs-3g

----
Hence my suggestion that using an NTFS filesystem mounted by ntfs-3g was
simply a temporary solution and not a method for continued operation.

depending of course, how it is mounted. Yes if mounted by hal, no if
mounted by
fstab and of course, a filesystem that supports posix
attributes.

Frank,
I've been playing around and found something interesting.

After I logon to Gnome, I try
aplay -l

I get
aplay: device_list:205: no soundcards found...

Now if I switch to a virtual console (Alt-Ctl-F2) and login. If I try,
aplay -l

I get
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

If I try,
aplay -Dplughw:0,0 /usr/share/sounds/shutdown.wav

I hear it play.

Anybody have any idea why it doesn't work under Gnome?

You need to find out what specific chipset is used on this "Dell
Wireless LAN Card". It is probably an intel chipset
-
ipw2200/ipw3945/ipw4965 etc. Until you know that, it's difficult to
help.

Um, sorry, i meant to say that the command /sbin/lspci -vv will
probably tell you this information.

Interesting, I have never heard of VirtualBox. What made you chose that
over vmware? How do you like the performance?

Thanks for the tips.

Sounds more like a request than a declaration ;-)

I wish they had provided some rationale, seeing as how the practice has
a long history on Unix, and I (at least) have not run into any situation
where it caused a problem.

Requiring the closing bracket or not seems like a trivial difference in
behavior, no?

Yep, I'll go with 'weak' as well.

Over a few hundred systems, this must be wasting almost a penny's worth
of space.

Hi David!

Just adding a bit to Warren's comment - what I see (hal working) on my
system in /var/cache/hald:
-----------------------------------------------------
[root@localhost hald]# pwd
/var/cache/hald
[root@localhost hald]# ls -a -l
total 456
drwx------ 2 haldaemon haldaemon 4096 2007-11-18 09:08 .
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 2007-11-03 20:42 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 439012 2007-11-18 09:08 fdi-cache
[root@localhost hald]# ls -a -Z
drwx------ haldaemon haldaemon system_ubject_r:hald_cache_t .
drwxr-xr-x root root system_ubject_r:var_t
..
-rw-r--r-- root root system_ubject_r:hald_cache_t fdi-cache
[root@localhost hald]#
----------------------------------------
The second "ls" run is to show SELinux context.

Have Fun!

Tod
