I installed Fedora Core 12 on a Dell Latitude 610 laptop. Networking isn't working. I tried to start networking with '/etc/rc.d/init.d network start': there were no errors or warning messages, but before and afterwards, I could not ping anything.
I tried to configure and start networking with system-config-network. The ethernet network card shows up, but the activate button is greyed out.
I can ping the loopback address 127.0.0.1 after I start networking with '/etc/rc.d/init.d network start' but I don't really know what that means.
lspci tells me that my network "card" is a "NexXtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express".
I know the eternt cable is good because I used it on another machine.
i am trying to get OpenCL to work on fc12. i have an nvidia gtx285 and from the nvidia page, the only driver that support OpenCL are 190.29 (nvdrivers_2.3_linux_64_190.29.run) However on using this driver xserver does not work, but using 195.36.15 it works, but OpenCL doesn't as currently only 190.29 driver will. i am infact very surprised that an open source api like OpenCL is having so much problem to work on nvidia hardware. i had none of these issues on fedora 10. i seem to be on a lone boat in this, is no one using OpenCL on fedora12?
p.s=> OpenCL is NOT OpenGL! OpenCL is for using GPU computing.
I have a tricky problem which I could soIve with a c program. I wrote one and found I didnt have gcc so I tried to install it. I was told I needed to install packages. I acknowledged and an error was generated gcc-4.4.2-7.fc12.i686 requires libgomp = 4.4.2-7.fc12 I try to install libgomp and go round again.
I have just upgraded to FC 12 from FC 11 everything on FC 11 was fine, I has samba, openvpn, subversion, tinyproxy and apache all working fine. Friends could vpn in and do all the stuff they where allowed to do,
Now unfortunately I have this issue after upgrading to FC12, All the samba mounts have disappeared from all my friends computers, when I look at the log files I now see this;
smbd/server.c:457(smbd_open_one_socket) smbd_open_once_socket: open_socket_in: Address already in use
/sbin/lspci reports this: 01:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI iwconfig reports nothing Network manager doesn't see it. The card works when I run it from Win 7. I tried rt2800 and rt2860. no results I am fairly new to Linux and I don't know all of the command line functions, How to get my wireless PCI card detected. After I installed the rt2860 driver, I didn't reboot. After rebooting, the card lit up and now I am functional. Woo Hoo.
"Dell 1525 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & external antenna" wireless card. It got recognized fine by FC12, but it was rather slow. I had read that life would be better in FC13 with the new kernel. After a long wait, I upgraded to FC13 yesterday.
It seems that the wireless is indeed faster. However, it it clearly a lot slower than under Windows 7 (it is a dual boot PC). My test is simply to play say Hulu in full screen: under Windows it looks fine, under FC13 it plays in slow motion.
kernel-126.96.36.199-90.fc12 seems to break 802.11n with my intel 4965 chip on my thinkpad t61p. Anyone else seeing the same thing? iwconfig shows extremely low bit rate. dmesg doesn't show anything at all unusual.
I'm having problems getting two wlan cards to work under Networkmanager with F12. I have an old server that I wanted to move, so thought I'd get a USB wlan device for it. before setting up the server, I thought I'd try the USB (an Edimax EW-7711USn - Ralink 2870) on my laptop first. My laptop has an inbuilt ipw2200 card that works fine under NM.
So I've down loaded the DPO_RT3370_LinuxSTA_V188.8.131.52_20100831.tgz file from Ralink, and built the driver (after changing the os/linux/config.mk file for the WPA supplicant settings). I also install the rt2870 firmware (from Ralink) in the /lib/firmware directory. I also blacklisted the rt2800usb driver to ensure that that didn't get loaded.
The problem I have is that I can now get both the ipw2200 device and the rt2870 devices 'working', but they both try to assume the same IP (I want fixed IP's and not DHCP for them) - what is the way to configure the 'devices' so that the rt2870 device is always given IP x and the ipw2200 given IP y?
I think my problem is really my lack of understanding where/how NM handles the files under the GUI config. I used to semi understand how the old network config tool set up it's files and where they were etc. But with NM I'm a bit lost as to how it equates the device with the network settings. Once I have the device working with the correct driver on my laptop, I'll look to apply the same settings on the server (which is then FC13 - but should be simpler as it doesn't have an existing wlan interface).
The system will also crash when booting if it is not plugged in. However, this behaviour is not consistent. The crash is not really a crash so much as a complete system freeze, where not even the numlock light on the keyboard will turn on or off. I have to do a hard reset to get it going again.The last entry before the reboot in /var/log/messeges just shows eth0 link going down.

I am installing fc12 in a datacenter that does not yet support fc12. I have fc12 successfully running on several other machines in a different unmanaged datacenter. Here is my problem. After booting the machine I run a data transfer intensive operation. I use scp to transfer a 1GB file. After some percentage, 10 to 30, the network appears to go away. No ping, ssh, traceroute, etc are successful (in or out). At the KVM console I can check the status of the network service, it indicates its up. Restarting network, turning off iptables, ifdown/ifup do not have any effect. Only a system reboot will temporarily allow network connectionifconfig show LOTS of RX errors and dropped packets.
I have a strange problem for internet. My clients (winxp - S2) can't get internet.Let me explain my scenerios. Fedora 10 with lan (eth0) having direct internet from dsl model, client (XP service pack 2) can use samba shares using dhcp (wlan0) installed in Fedora 10 box. client can ping my linux box.Now problem is: client (dosbox) can ping the google ip address (i.e ping 184.108.40.206) but can't use 'ping www.google.com'. That means ping with ip works for internet from my client. My linux box can. I can use internet from FC10 but can't use iexplorer from my client to have internet. I have enable ipmasquarding in Firewall and dhcpd is running on wlan0 for dynamic ip address of my clients.Can someone suggest me what kind of problem having I? What should i do to success iexplorer for internet? what possibly am i missing?
when ever i try to install updates i get shown an error & the updates stop the error i get says "librpmio.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates) librpm.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates)"
Not wanting to speculate why, in the repositories, Fedora doesn't *also* provide a on-KVM enabled kernel counterpart to the default KVM enabled kernel that *is* supplied, I must say I'm frustrated that they haven't done this simple thing.
Considering that everyone who upgrades to KVM enabled FC12 from a previous non-KVM release of Fedora (like FC10) ... considering that these people will be guaranteed to no longer be able to run VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation after upgrading, is a disappointing oversight by / or intent of Fedora (one that manifests in *lost productivity*).
And try though you may to install the kernel source RPM and compile it after running "make xconfig" to disable KVM support, you usually can't! Fedora kernel compile attempts often die very early in the "make" process, indicating something like ...
"Kernel compile error: No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'
or some other silliness. And when you successfully compile a "kernel.org" kernel, and try to boot it, you get all kinds of missing library errors (etc).
Given that it would be simple to provide both a KVM enabled kernel (as they do), and also a non-KVM enabled kernel (which they don't) so the rest of us can seamlessly continue to run VirtualBox and/or VMWare Workstation after an upgrade - and avoid getting entangled with deciding whether use KVM or XEN for guest O/S's... it's a frustrating misstep to not have done this basic thing (i.e. include a non-KVM kernel). It was a rude awakening when we tried to launch VirtualBox only to have it fail after the upgrade.
Anyway, has anyone successfully compiled their own kernel for FC12 and not get errors after boot? If so, which sources did you use; and what kernel version? In the meantime I'll try out other kernels and compile options.
I recently upgraded my CPU (just before the release of FC12), to a 64-bit compatible Intel Core 2 E7600. Upon the release of FC12 I moved to the 64 bit version (via a clean install).
I noticed that NVIDIA does not work (as many topics on this forum confirm). So I reinstalled and used the FC12 default drivers (I think they are called Nouveau-drivers). This seemed to work, so I ran "yum update", and now all X-windows fail.
KDE complaints: "kstartup4 does not exist or fails" and GNOME also complains (sorry forgot the exact error message)
I'd be happy to send logs, but if these are required, which log you want and where I can find it.
how to get or KDE or GNOME running ? (preferably KDE)
Trying to start Tomcat6, I get the following in catalina.out

It was a long time since my last post on this forum. The reason for this was that since FC7 I've moved to Debian Etch and then to Ubuntu, but now I'm back trying FC12 amd64 on my machine and seen how it changed.Almost everything is going well until now. After almost two years I see that a great development was made to build and gui to yum, but synaptic is still superior, imho.
Well, as I said, everything is going well with one exception: the *.tar.gz files. Doesn't matter if I use the gui or the cli. If I try to compress or decompress any file to tar.gz it fails with the error message bellow. All other file types work perfectly.
/bin/gtar: Child returned status 1 /bin/gtar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
As I said, I'm running FC12 amd64. Gnome environment.
I have just installed fc12, and everything seemed to go well. After reboot I get a line asking for First login:From what I've found, this should be the firstboot thing, but I don't know the login, and can't find any answer with a search.
is it me, or is the rapidsvn in FC12 have no menu?I cant find anyway to do "file > edit > preferences", theres no menu bar at all.I've used rapidsvn since FC8 and this is the first time I cant find the menubar lol.
I install CentOS 5.4 on a customer's workstation. They out-of-date nature of Enterprise is not at all working out for him. Since Enterprise is essentially FC6, is it possible to just upgrade him to FC12, or am I looking at a wipe and reinstall?
