Got the answer to activate the wireless card on Dell laptops (M501R) in Fedora 14 using Broadcom Card.

Use the driver given in the following link and follow the readme file to install.

Oddly enough, however, users who won't pay for a secure OS are more than willing to pay for third-party programs designed to plug the security holes.

What I also find is that the average business user is focused on his

job, not on security. *Most have seen the news, but so far it hasn't

affected them personally, so it must have been some thing that other

person did that got them in that fix. *Lack of personal expense is more

than economic. *Moreover most things people use do not expose their

bodies and persons to the kinds of threats that affect their computers,

resulting in the threat not being internalized.



It doesn't help that the governments of the world and the business

admins want back door access to the users systems. *The legality of that

access is for another thread, but one of the side effects is that really

effective security would make that access nearly impossible. *Remember

the hassels over PGP when it came available? *And now China has copies

of the Microsoft core software source code, so that they can have better

access to the control of the internet within their own country.



Add the DMCA, DRM software, the Sony Blu-Ray software scandal and the

vision that Hollywood uses to glamorize crackers (note the use of the

word cracker, the evil doer on networks, vs hacker, which is the legal

_expression_ of new uses for existing software and hardware).



The question becomes not how to secure a system, but rather how much

should it be secured. *The tines of that fork are governmental, user

need/requirements, reuse as a hacker might do, and access by ones

business supervisors on business systems or access by ones business

supervisors on ones personal systems, and the ultimate decisions of what

should or should not be legal use of ones personal computer (porn, file

sharing, personal email, financial dealings, personal communications,

and facebook type uses etc.)



* * * *Then there are archivists, who look toward archeology of the future,

and the future analysis of our society and how we should protect and

preserve the content not just of our production, but of our culture and

society.



* * * *Then we have to balance those interests against the desire of each

person for their own personal freedom or lack thereof in their

particular culture, such as socialism, sharia law, mosaic law and so on

for all the distinct cultures/theologies/societies that exist on

earth.



* * * *There is not a single point of security, but rather a sphere in a

complex dimensional space. *Where one falls within that sphere will

determine the value they place on security and privacy.



* * * *As we go from where we are today into a future where everything will,

or may anyway, be on line, how does each society deal with these issues?

What will cause the next civil war and where will it occur?



* * * *This all ties into the security question because total security is at

center of care space and none at all is the exclusionary border.

Economics, status, and personal feelings are all spaces that overlap and

overlap the security space. Your particular comfort zone is likely

within the space described by the union of your particular spheres of

interest somewhere within that global space.



* * * *So the questions that this poses are:

1. *Do you need security?

2. *How much security do you need?

3. *How much would you pay to get that security?

4. *How much effort would you expend to maintain that security?



Know the answers to the questions and you begin to answer the question

about security from the individual perspective.



Repose the questions to your particular government and you begin to

outline the space of permissible security.



Ask those questions again to your community, church, or peer group and

you get the societal view.



Ask the one final time to your business colleagues and you get the

business perspective.



Each of these perspectives outlines a potential area of security that

would be acceptable to that group. *Find the AND area of all these

spheres and you get the answer that will fit the current market place.

If you want more system security, you have to take steps to change the

answers at the origin of the answers, whatever they may be.

Les H

I've justed grabed blender-2.56a from [1], it work well on f14 x86_64, maybe you're using Python3 (instead of 2.7)

Hello everyone,

I have just bought Dell Inspiron M501R AMD Phenom

working fine. I then installed Fedora 14 64 bit on a partition and now i
am not able to connect to wifi.


I used the command* lspci -vnn and at the end it shows the following, does this output means the drivers of the wlan card is not installed.

China (and Russia, btw) do it in their own interest. So does everybody else.



Software (closed-source, even open-source) is a potent weapon in the age of

computerization, automation, and militarization of cyber space.

No international treaties will prevent that.



What do you think is inside all that complicated network gear (routers, etc) ?

Even things like Internet protocol specs (an open protocol by itself) can be

a matter of advantage/disadvantage to many interests/competing technologies.
