I've used Katapult to launch applications on both my laptop and desktop boxes for a long time, but yesterday it stopped working on my laptop. It will bring up folders, but not apps. I checked the settings and compared the katpultrc file with the one on my desktop (they are the same) and also compared katapult.la and katapult.so from /usr/share/kde3 and they are the same also. I'm not having any other problems, and it doesn't appear to be a problem with katapult itself, and I'm getting no warnings of any kind. Also I have done the same package updates on both machines.
I just installed FC13 on my HP laptop and everything has been working great with one exception. When I plug in my headphones, it doesn't mute the speakers and there is no sound in the headphones. I've checked alsamixer and the gnome-volume-control and all necessary channels are unmuted and turned up. But I have no idea how to proceed. I'm afraid to make any configuration changes because I don't want to lose the sound completely. Here is the output from lspci

I'm running Slack 12 on a Thinkpad T60 and my wireless has stopped connecting to my wireless network at home. I'm using wicd for network management and it was working up until yesterday. I don't know what to do to track down the problem, so I'm looking for advice to do so.Other wireless devices in the house can still connect, so I don't believe my router is the problem.
fsck died with exit statusAn automatic file system check of the root file system failed. A manual fsck must be performed then the system restarted. The fsck should be performed in maintenance mode with the root file system mounted in read only mode..This is the message I now get with the word "warning" in red
I have a keypad with a numeric part to it (as well as the traditional numbers above the alpha keys)It stopped working after I installed Moonlight - and although I have uninstalled Moonlight it is still not working (I may be wrong that Moonlight was the problem, but I can't think of anything else)The number lock indicator still lights up, but there is no response to any numeric input. With the number lock key off, the alternative actions (cursor up, down, etc) work normally.
I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell Studio laptop for a few months now with no audio problems. Last night I was listening to music just fine, then put my laptop to sleep and went to bed. Today, I go to play music, and nothing comes out of the speakers. Both headphone/speaker jacks work, but when I unplug the headphones, nothing happens.
Fedora 14 on my laptop has randomly decided that it hates me. The system stops booting after "starting atd", right when its starting X. It "hangs" after the fedora logo, though it will reboot when I try "ctrl-alt-delete". I can see that haldaemon is failing to start, and when I boot the kernel with "selinux=0" it gives me an error message:
error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. NetworkManager fails with same message. the .so file is in its proper directory, where it has been all along. I've tried booting into runlevels 2 and 3. No luck there either. It'll boot to the login prompt, but as soon as I under my userid the screen flashes. I managed to get the error message it was giving me before the flash: inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 503: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT` failed!
I can boot into single user mode just fine. I've checked dmesg and Xorg logs, but I honestly don't know what I'm looking for (and I imagine that those logs would be useless if I boot into runlevel 1, since the error is at higher runlevels. But I can't get the logs for those because the computer just hangs. SSH and networking are never enabled before the hang.)
I'm at a loss here. I use the machine for both school and work [and I have quite a bit of both to do today] and I've been trying to get it to boot normally for hours now. Anyone have any ideas that I could try?
I met problems when istall FC 10 on LG ED 500. I put the installation CD in the DVD drive, and start the computer, but it stopped very quickly. I didn't even see the progress bar of Fedora 10 coming out of the screen. What happend? I have checked the DVD drive under the windows system, and it's working.
Installed F12 a while back. Everything was working fine. Then I wanted to install perl-cpan, so when I run "yum install perl-cpan", or "yum update", it hangs on "Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit".
I've let it hang there for hours, nothing ever happens.
For the first week or so, Yum worked fine, I could manually update as I've done on other Fedora versions without any issue.
In the Gnome gui I have automatic updating disabled. As far as I can tell, yum-updatesd isn't running and isn't enabled. I wanted to update things manually for a while until I got this new box "settled in".
I know I can install cpan via other methods, but this strange behavior with Yum has me worried.
I ran all the "yum clean" commands, and now yum actually displays errors:
Trying other mirror.
I get these errors over and over.
I read up on how to edit the /etc/yum/fedora.repo and fedora-update.repo files to fix this, BUT, I have no such files...
This is what I have:
The other interesting thing is that my /var/log/yum.log is 0 bytes. Yet the yum.log-20100101 is 209709 bytes and shows all the updates I did just a month ago...
Where can I download the repo files from? How can I fix the repository?
While on holiday skype on my laptop Fedora 11 just stopped working. It would no longer load. I tried removing it and reinstaling more than once now. the icon just sits there when clicked it does nothing. I have tried starting it from the applications folder same thing it does nothing. the program was working perfectly then it just stopped
I am still struggling to get skype running on that platform, but it hardly works. First I tried to install skype-22.214.171.124-fc10.i586.rpm but it did not work, always ending in "Aborted (core dumped)".Then I found an entry in some forum and tried to use skype-126.96.36.199-fc9.i586. rpm, and it worked! I could make calls, the microphone was recognized and everything worked as it should be.
Until today. For reasons beyond my scope skype stopped working, and after I have looged in with my skype-name I got the above Aborted-message again. Even after the reboot of my Dell Laptop skype refused to work.I even installed all the recommended yum packages I found in this skype forum topic.Can anyone please advise me how to properly install a stable version of skype with Fedora 12? I searched the Fedora forums but did not use any useful entry.
I've seen a couple of threads about recent issues with skype, but nothing like this. Since today my mic is not working in skype (it does work otherwise, for exmaple in sound recorder). I'm using F11 x64. Yesterday I upgraded to the last skype version, and today the mic wasn't working. I downgraded now, thinking that was the problem, but still the same issue, so maybe some update did this (I'm not sure if alsa or pulseaudio got any update yesterday or today).
I've been running F12 and then upgraded to F13 this summer. All was working great until I came home from vacation and my F13 box hung. Upon reboot the X server will not start. I have a Nvidia 8400GS card and it's been working fantastic since I install the box last year. I have tried Nouveau and AKMOD Nvidia drivers to no avail. What info do you guys need to help me out???
Here is a snip from messages.log:

I migrated a few VirtualBox vdi's to a new laptop. My Windows XP and 7 virtual hard drives imported nicely when I created and started the guests; however, Fedora bombs as soon as the boot progress bar completes. I get this error message: VirtualBox GUI has stopped working.
i did an update yesterday and after me-tv doesn't work any more, now when i run me-tv i get this error message,Duplicate object id 'hbox1' on line 1220 (previously on line 535)To c if the tunner was working i installed kaffeine and it works fine, so its something related to the me-tv, any ideas how to fix it
All of a sudden the Software Updater on my FC7 box tells me that it can't get updates, because there's no internet connection. That's not the reason since I can browse the web just fine, and the Samba server is working fine. I thought it could be a configuration change on my router, but I don't see it. I am not sure what port the Software Updater wants to use.
Our smart card readers stopped working with Firefox and Thunderbird after upgrading from Fedora 9 to 12. When I first opened it, Thunderbird warned that the "CAC Reader (DoD Configuration Extension)" is incompatible with the current version (3.0b4) and disabled the extention. Firefox (3.5.5) just doesn't work. The module listed in Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird [Security Devices] was "/usr/lib64/pkcs11/libcoolkeypk11.so" which is still there. To get it working in Fedora 9 I was able to run an installer from [URL]. That was before my VeriSign software certificate expired.
Now I can't even connect to forge.mil because they require a PKI cert to connect. I'm wondering how they expect someone to get a driver for their CAC reader if they need a working CAC reader to get the driver - seems like a "Catch 22" situation. I also still have the rpm's that I downloaded before from software.forge.mil. I tried installing those but that didn't help. mozilla-dod-configuration-1.0.2-0.noarch.rpm firefox-mozilla-dod-configuration-1.0.2-0.noarch.rpm thunderbird-mozilla-dod-configuration-1.0.2-0.noarch.rpm
Does anyone know if there is a later version of these RPM's or if there's another way to get our CAC readers working again with Firefox and Thunderbird?
There is no module named "linux-vdso.so". It looks like there was a name change that broke the libccid.so dependencies. I tried creating links within "/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-166.fc12.x86_64/" named linux-vdso.so pointing to vdso.so but it still isn't working. I've unloaded the module within Firefox (and Thunderbird) preferences within the [Security Devices] manager. Then tried adding it back using the [Load] button and specifying the coolkey library again but it's still not working.
I am having problem with wireless networking my fedora 12 since i opened network manager yesterday. But to my notice i haven't done any changes. But still i am not able find any reason for the wireless network not to work. When i try to restart the network servies it gives the following msg.
Bringing up interface eth0:
This version of ISC DHCP is based on the release available on ftp.isc.org. Features have been added and other changes have been made to the base software release in order to make it work better with this distribution.
Please report for this software via the Red Hat Bugzilla site: [url]
Did i do something wrong with the network manager or did something go wrong with fedora.
I'm using fedora 13, and it's been a while that yum auto-update doesn't pop up.Some time ago, when updates were available, a notification popped up asking for update (and I love this feature because I didn't have to check manually).Under System>Preferences>Software Update i've Daily check for updates and weekly check for major updates, with no automatic installs.And doing System>Administration>Software updates, it load and updates correctly, just it's no longer automatically checked.
In firefox, all shortcuts work, for example ctrl+c, ctrl+v, etc. But in Kate for example they do not, in konquerror the same. What could:confused it be? I added russian locale in System Settings->Country/Region&Language and now it works. (I ve got russian language in keyboard layouts).
I have been using the commandline for network manager cnetworkmanager in Fedora 14 without any problem. For the most part I used it to restart my vpn connection like so:
Code: cnetworkmanager --activate-connection=user,'AAABBBCCC',eth0,& this was in a script that I put in the /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ folder so it would start automatically whenever the vpn disconnected.
Last night, I had an epiphany and upgraded to Fedora 15, which seems to be working fine for me after updating a few programs including cnetworkmanager
At one point I realized that my neat little script wasn't working anymore though, so I checked out what happens at the commandline when I type the above command in:
Code: [captainralf@Cap ~]$ cnetworkmanager --activate-connection=user,'AAABBBCCC',eth0,&  30884 [captainralf@Cap ~]$ Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/cnetworkmanager", line 319, in <module>
I was trying to update the drivers for my wireless card and it no longer works. I have a cisco pcmcia card that I got working to use as a backup, but I would prefer to use my internal card. The card is the Intel Pro 2200BG. Please let me know what information is needed to diagnose and correct this issue. I am relatively new to Linux (Currently using F10) and trying to learn.This is the iwconfig from my cisco card. The Intel card was working fine yesterday. but now doesn;t even show up.
[west@garfield ~]$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth1 no wireless extensions.
I have a Dell XPS M1330. I installed Fedora 10 on a separate partition and left Vista on the first. It was working just fine and for some reason all of the sudden it is not recognizing the Wireless controller. Vista is still working fine although I did get a couple of "WLAN controller has stopped working" errors. I suspect I may have a physical problem with the controller but I'm confused as to why Vista is still using it but Linux is not. The actual physicall "WIFI" light on the laptop does not even illuminate when I boot Linux. No wireless networks appear in the network list under Linux. Particularly since it WAS working fine for months...
I have a wireless router at home, but I usually have my laptop connected to it through an ethernet cable. It had always worked with no problems until some time last week when the wired network stopped working (but the wireless still works with no problem). At first I thought that it was some update, but no. My laptop works ok with the wired network at my office, and I also tried a different laptop at home and it didn't work. It's not the cable either, I tried a different one. I haven't changed any settings in my router.So I really don't know what's going on. I just find it weird that the router's wired networking suddenly stops working but the wireless still works fine...
I have a relatively new F12 install (one week old) on which I got my wireless Broadcom card working using kmod-wl-PAE. It was a very easy process - not really a process just yum install kmod-wl-PAE.
After a few updates, I notice that the wireless card stopped working. I assumed maybe there was an update that conflicted, so I did a reinstall of kmod-wl-PAE and it worked again immediately.
Then I started installing compiz-fusion. Immediately after, wireless is broken again. So I yum erase kmod-wl-PAE and then yum install kmod-wl-PAE and it works again.
Now, only slightly later that same day, wireless stops working more or less randomly and I cannot get the reinstall of kmod-wl-PAE to fix it. So I uninstall, disable compiz-fusion, shut down, and restart the computer to try again. My thought is that maybe along the way my autostart compiz or something about compiz is causing the wireless not to configure properly. When I restart, wireless is working. Without kmod-wl-PAE installed:
yum info kmod-wl-PaE Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Available Packages Name : kmod-wl-PAE Arch : i686
One, how is this even possible, and two, what is going on with the wireless working, not working, working, not working?
Finally got around to dual-booting and all was going well. I was surprised to see that the webcam on my Vaio worked straight away. However, some time between one boot and another the webcam mysteriously stopped working..
Here is the last time it worked:
Jun 6 23:12:51 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (05ca:1837) Jun 6 23:12:51 dillinga kernel: input: UVC Camera (05ca:1837) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.7/usb1/1-2/1-2:1.0/input/input12
Then the next boot:
Jun 6 23:41:48 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (05ca:1837) Jun 6 23:41:48 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: UVC non compliance - GET_DEF(PROBE) not supported. Enabling workaround. Jun 6 23:41:48 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: Failed to query (129) UVC probe control : -32 (exp. 26).
So I decided to boot into windows and make sure all was OK - and it was. Then I came back into Fedora and suddenly the camera was working again! I thought I'd reboot just to see if anything changed and alas here I am again with no webcam and the same error.
