New to Linux, Help me please
 
Hello

I am new to Linux. I installed Fedora 8 yesterday, and some how installed NetworkManager to use wireless network.

Now there is problem, may be I did something wrong when I install it, every time
when Linux is turned on, there is message that I need to put keyring

Like below

Enter password for default keyring to unlock
The application 'nm-applet'(/usr/bin/nm-applet) wants access to the default keyring, but it is locked.

Once I typed the password, my wireless network connection is established.

For more convenience, can I set up this automatically? Because, every time when I log in and asking me for a password for default keyring to unlock frustrates me sometimes. I believe that there is a way to set this thing up automatically.


Also, after I installed fedora 8, I updated it. After I updated, in the Grub, there are two fedora to be selected.

Fedora (2.6.23.9-85.fc8)
Fedora (2.6.23.8-63.fc8)
Windows XP

I believe that these are two different kernel versions ? aren't they?
If they are, is it okay if I remove oldest one ?? below one this case.
If it is okay, can you please tell me how to remove it?

I just want to keep this tidy.

Thanks!!!

Look for a file /etc/network/interfaces and find the entry for the wireless interface similar to this:
Code:

iface eth2 inet dhcp
In this example the wireless interface is eth2, if you've been connecting to the same AP all the time you should have lines representing the key and password or whatever. Add auto eth2 as the first line in the wireless interface section with an editor as root like so:
Code:

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

Code:

Fedora (2.6.23.9-85.fc8)
Fedora (2.6.23.8-63.fc8)
Windows XP

Yes, you can remove it either with yum or the GUI software removal if the newer one has been treating you good, you can always re-install it if you prefer it latter.

Try this command as root:
Code:

yum remove kernel-2.6.23.8-63.fc8
There may be some dependencies (other packages) that it may want to remove also, usually it's not an issue to say yes to all unless the new kernel is one of them. If it gives you nasty warnings, don't do it.

Use better thread titles. It's not hard.
