    Jacob,

    Did I read that RHES4 will update to gcc-3.4.3-22? That would solve my delima if they were to add that to their update system.

    Thanks,
    Dalene Root

    My solution with an ATI 9600 was to get an nVidia card. Problem solved. I spent two weeks fighting with ATI drivers and gave up the fight. Less than 30 minutes to get the nVidia card to work.

    Over mixing of repositories may also cause problems with getting things to work.

    Thanks.  Missed that post in the flood.
    I can't find it in bugzilla (which doesn't mean it's not there :) ), but
    has anyone suggested as an RFE that the yum mirror list should be
    configured correctly when yum is installed in the first place?  Could an
    install script be devised that would, say, look at the user's time zone
    and automattically set the .repo files to point to the correct mirrors?
    This would save people from bugs like 152395, at least.

    Hi Matt,
     
    Reference Message #10
     
    Forgive me if I sound naive. I am not a programmer. The reason that we
    wanted to use gcc 3.4.3-9 on Fedora is because some of our developers
    are using Fedora Core 3 and some have purchased Redhat ES4. RHES4 has
    gcc-3.4.3-9 while Fedora 3 has 3.4.3-22. There seems to be an
    incompatibility between the two versions. Here is an excerpt of the
    original complaint. 
    We have a serious problem with incompatible versions gcc.
    It turns out that the versions of gcc that get installed with Fedora 
    Core 2, Fedora Core 3 and RedHat ES4 are different.
    There are instances where compile errors that do not get produced with
    one version will be produced on another.
    In particular this becomes evident in forward namespace, forward class
    and friend class declarations.
    We decided we would rather have 3.4.3-9 because RHES4 is supported and
    my lead feels that would be more stable solution.
    Thanks,
    Dalene Root

    Finally got the Pundit-R working with TV-out !
    Anyway, I can't really recommend this setup because it took a very long time 
    to make things happen.
    The drivers really are not up to date for FC3 and need lots of patching. 
    Getting the correct Modeline also was a hassle, but finally it worked.

    i imagine that it should be easy enough to get the source rpms for the rhel
    gcc that you're using, and have/allow your engineers to rebuild it on FC3,
    using the same compilation/build options.. this should give you a
    compile/build environment close to what rhel has.
    it may not be exact, given the FC3 will still have potential difference that
    may result in you seeing different errs/msgs... welcome to the world os
    distributed software development!!!
    but this can be a good thing. it gives you/forces you to build consistent
    code across varying systems.

    GCC 3.4.x is not meant to be incompatible, of course there can be bugs
    in one or both of the compilers, but GCC 3.4.x is now in bugfixing mode,
    so generally higher releases should have more bugs fixed.
    If you see a regression from gcc-3.4.3-n to gcc-3.4.3-m where n < m,
    please report it to us.
    RHEL4 U1 is going to include gcc-3.4.3-22, while FC3 updates currently
    include gcc-3.4.3-22.fc3.  Almost no difference.

    If the Fedora Core 3 GCC upgrade fixed some errors in the previous 
    version, then moving back to an older version is a regression.

    Are you sure that the problems aren't just with FC2's gcc-3.3.x vs FC3 and
    RHEL4's 3.4.x? Note that Fedora Core 3 started with gcc-3.4.2-6.fc3, but
    was updated to the current bugfix level. I suggest reading the changelog for
    the latest gcc package for FC3 -- the differences between the RHEL4 release
    and the latest FC3 version appears to be a large number of bugfixes.

    Any particular reason for 18k? (Just curious -- clearly having something
    bigger than the default is good.)

    This is my second attempt (with revisions) at getting help with this 
    problem.
    When I run 'yum update', after several minutes of attempting to resolve
    dependencies, yum gives me the following error message:
        Package kdebase needs samba-common = 3.0.11, this is not available.
    No updates take place.  'rpm -qi samba-common' reported that I have
    version 3.0.11.  I then ran 'yum update samba-common' and now I have
    version 3.0.14 and I still get the error message.  Reverting to version 
    3.0.11 does not seem to be an option because of the unavailability of 
    the old package, dependencies and so on.
    I commented out the kde-redhat.org repository and re-ran 'yum update'
    and it ran fine, updating a handful of programs.  Then I uncommented the
    kde-redhat.org repository lines and ran yum again and got the same
    message.  Searching list archives and google turned up nothing.  I had
    the same problem on my notebook.
    Other information:
    kernel: 2.6.10-1.771_FC2 (yes, FC2)
    KDE: 3.4.0
    It seems to me that this might be something that the packager of the KDE 
    RPMs should address -- maybe "equals 3.0.11" should be "greater than or 
    equals 3.0.11".  I could find no way to contact anyone at 
    kde-redhat.org, however.  Maybe if I wait until the next KDE package, 
    this will go away.  For now, I changed yum.conf to ignore kde* packages.
    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    It's one track on a 1.44M floppy.

    Thanks again! But system-config-network does not have an entry for Dial-up.
    Does that mean the hardware is not being detected?
    Best wishes!

    Makes sense. What about bs=1440k?

    Try kppp, and in the modem configuration, put /dev/ttySL0. I don't know what 
    GNOME uses, but it should be similar.
