Default /var/log/messages is making me dizzy ...

I've just been reading /var/log/messages
on the laptop I put Fedora-8 on yesterday.
(Never got PXEboot to work - whatever I did,
it said there was a conflict between the F-8 ISO
and "base data", whatever that is.
In the end I just installed the KDE Live CD,
and ran "yum groupinstall" on the package groups I like -
as listed by "yum grouplist".)

But /var/log/messages is full of such strange things.
I feel there should be a Fedora doctor one could sent it to,
and she will tell you how to cure all your ills.

Here are a few lines:
--------------------------------------
Jan 19 11:51:49 mary acpid: client connected from 2400[68:68]
Jan 19 11:51:53 mary acpid: client connected from 2555[0:0]
Jan 19 11:51:55 mary kernel: [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
Jan 19 11:51:55 mary kernel: [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20060119 on minor
0
Jan 19 11:53:57 mary pulseaudio[2701]: pid.c: Daemon already running.
Jan 19 11:53:57 mary pulseaudio[2701]: main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
Jan 19 11:54:11 mary gconfd (tim-2782): starting (version 2.20.1), pid 2782
user 'tim'
--------------------------------------

acpid - who is this client, and what does she want?

drm - I thought that was something to do with stealing DVDs?

pulseaudio - isn't that the think Karl is worrying about?
What is it, anyway?
Can I live without it?

gconfd - do I really need this?
gconf seems to take up acres of space.
Do I really need it?
I always assumed it was something to do with Gnome?

it is the future of audio daemons - so say the packagers. Seems to work
rather well actually. I think Karl was singularly focused on problems
between pulseaudio and skype which probably has yet to catch up and not
a Fedora package

gnome stuff...probably need to keep it or it gets recreated

Direct Rendering Module - video related and at the kernel-level.

I'd be more worried about Mary.

Seriously, you need to buy a book-with-Fedora, and study it.
