Fedora :: X-windows Fails Under FC12 64 Bit

Nov 19, 2009

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)

Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 (3.1 GHz)
3 GB Memory (800MHz)
Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT
Mobo: Foxconn P35A01

Red Hat / Fedora :: FC12 Fails To Start After Installing Kmod-nvidia

Jan 23, 2010

After installing nvidia drivers (sudo yum install kmod-nvidia), Fedora12 (kernel fails to start. To be more exact, it show the 'loading screen', and then the screen gets all scrambled. Trying to switch the ttys doesn't work either (though I can boot in runlevel 3).

I know that there might be some conflicts with nouveu, but i followed the steps from 'Fedora Nvidia Driver Install Guide' (not allowed to post URLs), so I guess nouveu isn't exactly my problem(?).

Another puzzling thing about this, is that I can boot and use FC12 from VMware. No problems there. I also tried removing/reinstalling the kmod-nvidia (and everything else nvidia related), but the problem persists.

Specs: Intel core2duo t7300, nvidia 8600m gs, 2gb ram.

PS tried nvidia installer previously, and problem was the same, so I reinstalled FC12 at that time.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Dual Boot W/ Fc12 And Windows 7?

Jul 6, 2010

My current task is to add windows 7 to fc12. From other postings it seems the next step is to use the fc12 install disk to create a windows partition from the unused space. Could someone inform me about whether this will delete my current installation of fc12 and my home directory.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Much Slower In FC12/13 Than In Windows

Jun 11, 2010

"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.

Fedora :: Build A Rpm For FC12?

Jan 2, 2010

I saw that AMZ recently updated the rpm for Fedora to be compatible with FC 11, however the install is still broken on FC12 (obviously since it's built for 11).

My main question is has anyone found a decent workaround, that won't completely hose your system? Should I just wait until they build an rpm for FC12?

Fedora :: Non-KVM Kernel For FC12?

Mar 10, 2010

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.

Fedora :: Unable To Use Tar.gz On FC12 Amd64

Dec 28, 2009

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.

Fedora :: FC12 - Networking Isn't Working ?

Mar 5, 2010

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 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.

Fedora :: Xset Led 3 Does Not Work With FC12

Apr 27, 2010

I have 2 Fedora 12 installs with this problem. Before installing FC 12, xset led 3 worked fine.

The command:

SHOULD turn on the scroll lock LED.

With FC 12, it doesn't.

In Xorg.log, I see: (WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd', 'mouse' or 'vmmouse' will be disabled.

(I believe before FC12, I was using driver "kbd".) The man page for kbd shows the options needed for program control of the LEDs.

The new driver appears to be "evdev". I've read some of the HAL documentation and I think this driver uses the file: /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-leds.fdi

I see nothing about program control in this file.

Anyway, anyone have any idea why xset led stopped working and how to go about fixing it?

Fedora Installation :: Upgrading The Fc12 To F13?

May 13, 2010

I'd like to reproduce the way I got to f12 from f11, but obviously to f13 basically I started out on the f11 rawhide repos, then as f12 got released a yum update updated my fedora-release and then hey presto I was automatically upgraded to f12 final release if I now turn on my rawhide repos, as f13 is nearing completion, will I be updated to the latest f13 release (RC3 I believe) and then as f13 gets released my fedora-release will be updated and i will then be upgraded to f13 final as happened before?I don't want to download a whole dvd iso and then upgrade when f13 is final, I'd like to do a gradual transition ie..

f12 -> f13 RC3 via rawhide
f13 RC3 -> f13 Final via yum update
