What Doesn't Work in FC7


1: XCD Roast CD Writer tries to start but then goes away.
2: Random Screen Savers are just a blank screen, but the rest seems to work.
3: Yum Extender when you check Livna-Testing and click refresh it says livna-testing and hangs at 30% complete.

This is what I have so far any suggestions??

1. Use the built-in Nautilus CD/DVD writer. You don't need a separate application, unless you are creating a video DVD (then use growisofs). If you want a separate application, use k3b (just "yum install" it).

2. Do you have a 3D video driver? Some of the screensavers are 3D, but without a suitable driver, you can't use them.

3. Does yum have the same problem? Livna has been recovering from a server failure. There may still be some issues.

They changed the /proc tree in latest kernel (not really Red Hat's fault, but they use it as default, so...) ip_conntrack is now nf_conntrack which breaks Firestarter, my favorite iptables configuration utility.

livna has been having issues... there is quite a bit of breakage on their server right now even though it is "up", so I wouldn't blame yum/yumex issues with livna on yum/yumex just yet.

That being said I haven't had a single issue with the DVD install + KDE.

The repository was backuped on a secondary server and you're actually using it.
From Livna's website at http://rpm.livna.org/

So the only thing affected was the wiki.

Moral of story: never confuse backups with fault tolerance.

Heh.

I know for fact that the binaries within the mplayer, mplayer-gui, and vlc packages for FC6 fail the package md5 check when you try to install them via yum or rpm.

Downloading the SRPM & rebuilding it seems to work though.

Run it from the command line and post the output.

Livna has always been the wrong place to get anything related to mplayer, before or after the "crash".

In fact, if you look at other guides they specifically tell you to edit the livna repo's config file and exclude those packages.

Here's an excerpt from the Fedora Core 6 page even, so it's nothing new. http://www.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc6-tips.php

Quote:
To prevent potential problems of updates in the Livna repository from messing up the mplayer and mencoder packages add the following line highligted in bold to the file /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo :

gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
exclude=mplayer* mencoder* ffmpeg*

[livna-debuginfo]

Then you can go ahead and install mplayer and all it's dependencies:
I personally don't use mplayer so it's never been a problem.

vino-server doesn't work after upgrade from 6 to 7.

I haven't hunted for causes or solutions, just yet, but after the handshake, authentication, and password acceptance, no window pops up. I've tried from different machines and sessions, but no luck.

If I figure it out, I'll report back - otherwise, I'll try to figure out NX, once again...

cheers,

Why are you using Livna Testing with Fedora 7, unless you're using F7T4? If it's Fedora 7 final use Livna, not testing.

Livna-Testing is a chose in Yum extender. This is where the ATI drivers are at this point and I would like to try them out.

How did you install java? Did you get the jre rpm off the java webpage? And if you did, did you make the soft links?

Java works for me under Fedora 7 with Firefox 2.0.0.4. Check out how I got it working: http://www.johnson.homelinux.net/index.php/Java_6
If you look around my Wiki (see my sig) there's more personal how-to's. This stuff works for me and *should* work for you, but no guarantees. Might help some of you though.
