    btw--this is a very helpful sticky on the forums...lotta info

    It might be in there somewhere, but I still haven't found a definitive fix to the boot-up stall in fedora 7, I think the latest kernel is probably the worst of the three that I have installed, but I don't think there's a perfect one out there yet.

    Do you have the debuginfo packages installed? Maybe if you did you could get some useful information to create a bug in bugzilla or post that information here there are lots of helpful people here as well as this sticky

    I am just starting to sink my teeth into Linux and chose Fedora because my company is using it extensively. Actually, they are using RedHat, but from what I gather - same same...

    This sticky is fantastic in the info department... hell, it is quarter after 2am and I am just now thinking about bed.. had to get my security setup and I followed the HOWTO section to the letter. I feel like a kid in a candy store!

    Exclamation Enviormental Variables

    Hi everyone.

    I am trying to do something that should be simple, but all my internet searching has been far too confusing and incomplete. For my client application to work correctly, I need to have the following variables to be set for all users at boot.

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/psql/lib
    export PVSW_ROOT=/usr/local/psql
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/psql/bin

    For the life of me, I just can't find a concise set of instructions on how to do this. Can some one point me at the right thread that covers this?

    Put the commands in a file with a .sh suffix and place the file in /etc/profile.d.

    Seems like the right spot for newbi Qs like these:

    Till now ive always pirut/RPMs for any software installs. But increasingly finding a need to compile source. So:

    1) Where do people put their software? Whats conventional?
    I found this:
    "Traditionally /usr/local is the place to install third party software on a Unix platform".
    But if I:
    ls -r /usr/local
    theres nothing but a bunch of empty dirs in thier. Which brings me to:

    2)Could someone point me to, or give me quik disambiguation of /usr/local/* ? seems like a pretty useless part of the default file tree.

    Cheers.

    In my case, as in it may or may not work for you, all I need to do is to install gstreamer-plugins-ugly.
    Code:
    yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
    You first need to install the Livna repository. Follow this link to install Livna, then install the plugin.

    Install Livna first. Then as root
    Code:
    yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
    Restart Rhythmbox and you should be able to play mp3's.

    That all worked, thankyou.

    My son want itunes which is beginning to become a nightmare. I have visited this website http://wine-review.blogspot.com/2007...with-wine.html
    and have managed to down load wine and configure it. However the line:
    Now install the richedit30 update, make sure you go to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 and rename richedit20.dll and richedit32.dll to *.bak or the richedit update wont work.
    Has me foxed...what does it mean?

    All suggestions gratefully acepcepted in advance.
