GDM and autofs seems to have a problem:


Was actually an autofs bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=242230 fixed in updates

GIMP plugin symlinks before F7 were broken. After upgrading to F7, execute the following;

su -c "/usr/sbin/gimp-plugin-mgr --install '*'"

Gnumeric has a missing dependency. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=242163

yum install libgsf-gnome solves it.

Evolution hangs https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=245289 fixed in updates-testing.


liferea.x86_64 is broken https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=231073 use the .i386 version instead.

[2007-06-04] Using the 64bit version, OK so far. Light usage.

killall gnome-panel to restart it.

[2007-06-20] Locked up again.
[2007-06-29] Locked up again. Recreated the panel from scratch.

vs old behaviour

To get back the old behaviour, 2 possible fix's.

In your ~/.bash_profile


alias ls='LC_TIME=C ls --color=auto'

or 2)

              with -l, show times using style STYLE: full-iso, long-iso,  iso,
              locale,  +FORMAT.   FORMAT is interpreted like ‘date’; if FORMAT
              is FORMAT1<newline>FORMAT2, FORMAT1 applies to non-recent  files
              and FORMAT2 to recent files; if STYLE is prefixed with ‘posix-’,
              STYLE takes effect only outside the POSIX locale

In your ~/.bash_profile

alias ls='ls --time-style="+%b %e  %Y$newline%b %e %H:%M" --color=auto'

cdrecord has been replaced by wodim from the cdrkit project. wodim should be interface compatible with cdrecord.


You can run the 32bit version of firefox via firefox-32 (this is available under FC6 also). Once everyone is onto F8 the firefox's from thor will be removed.
