Recently I had (and am still having) a lot of trouble with my Fedora 12 installation.
First, 3D acceleration and sound stopped working. This was solver by adding my account to the "video" and "audio" groups (I wonder howcome it worked before?).
Then, my keyboard stopped working in X. It would work fine in CLI mode, but as soon as I start X not even the Num Lock LED worked! I think I glimpsed that it might be due to a missing keymap or something, but I don't know. I got my computer back by making Xfce's keyboard settings override X, but it still isn't right, and I can't use anything other than Xfce.
Recently I tried to burn a CD/DVD but neither Brasero, K3B, nor cdrecord could detect the DVD burner.
I decided to maybe try something like rkhunter, but it quits with an error message:
$ sudo rkhunter --check
Invalid XINETD_CONF_PATH configuration option - non-existent pathname specified: /etc/xinetd.conf
I just wonder what's wrong, and whether I should just erase this Fedora 12 installation and move on, either reinstalling Fedora 12 or trying out a new distro.
