View Full Version : misc questions and problems

24th June 2006, 06:56 PM
Hello all, been working with FC5. I few misc question i've developed and been looking for answers to:

su -c 'yum install yum-utils'
works fine.

su -c 'yumdownloader --source kernel'

Added 331 new packages, deleted 884 old in 4.60 seconds
No Match for argument kernel

I've been using RPM's but would like to know what up with yum. Yum works OK otherwise

Is there is a nvidia_source PKG? So x-config will show it as a module to build? I know the whole closed drivers issue but though there used to be somthing like that.

Any good link to building 2.6 kernels? As to what to do and why. Seems to be somechanges since 2.4 days on building.

Other questions;
graphic objects having objects behind them show thru.
monitor miss detected and i can't lower/change refresh rate.
nvagp/agpuart status(needed/not needed).

Sorry for the state of this post, but i've been trying find these answers. I figure its old news i can't seem to dig up.

amd 64 geforce 3 chipset
GF5700 graphics


PS; where was this yum thing at in RH5? yum install isa_nightmare modem_mess soundcard_unlikely ;)

The source repos aren't enabled by default. Use 'yumdownloader --enablerepo=updates-source --source kernel".
