2015-03-27 13:10:37 -0600 marked best answer Which software package has the drivers for the Broadcom 4320 chipset?

I have another wireless device which I need firmware for; this one has a Broadcom 4320 USB chipset. A YUM search has turned up nothing and I was wondering if anybody know where I can get it. Cheers.

2015-03-27 13:07:35 -0600 marked best answer How do you get an icon to remain in the top panel after its window has been minimized?

I've just installed Fedora 18, and the desktop has the annoying habit of completely disappearing an icon from the top bar when I minimize its window. I'd like to be able just to click the icon when I want the window to come back into view. Cheers.

2015-03-27 11:39:19 -0600 marked best answer What command-line syntax creates live USB media from a Fedora 19 PPC image?

I'm trying to create a live Fedora 19 USB drive for use on PPC architecture. The liveusb-creator app fails to do it, and gives the error messages below. If I'm not mistaken, live USB media as well as live disks can be created using the command-line, but I don't know the syntax.


Here is the content of the file /tmp/liveusb-creator.log:

2015-03-27 11:38:41 -0600 marked best answer How to disable PackageKit in Fedora 19 KDE?

PackageKit gets to be a real pest during installations and upgrades, by taking an inordinate amount of time to release the yum lock after each package finishes installing. So I was wondering how I could disable it before starting installations or upgrades? Thanx in advance.

2015-03-27 11:38:38 -0600 marked best answer Where do I get the wireless drivers for the Intersil ISL3886 chipset in Fedora 18?

I'm looking for the YUM\RPM package that contains the drivers for my Linksys wusb54g-v1 wireless network device, which contains the Intersil ISL3886 chipset. The Debian package is called 'linux-firmware-nonfree', but a YUM search turns up nothing by that name. Any help would be much appreciated.

2015-03-27 11:37:32 -0600 marked best answer Drivers [applets?] needed to use USB-connected HP copier with Fedora 19 KDE

I recently got a Hewlett-Packard Photosmart c7200 model copier\scanner\fax\etc., and while it's recognized without difficulty by both Kubuntu 12.04 and Manjaro KDE, Fedora 19 KDE refuses to acknowledge its presence, at least when it's connected by USB. I haven't tried it by Ethernet or wireless yet. At any rate, my theory is that the necessary drivers and\or applets aren't present. If I'm right, could someone point me to where to get the required software [the SANE website has been no help], or if I'm wrong, enlighten me as to what the situation is? Cheers.

The following is the output from lsusb -vv:

Just a note - there is no package called xine-lib-extras-freeworld. At least I wasn't able to find it.

2014-10-08 15:46:33 -0600 commented question Fedora 20 install, not enough free space on disks

If you're installing with Anaconda, first boot from the live media and use Disk Utility to clear\unallocate the disk space you want to use.

2014-10-06 22:26:57 -0600 asked a question Drivers\modules for PCI bridge in Fedora 20 kernels are missing

Two of the most recent Fedora 20 kernels, 3.15.10-201.fc20.i686 and 3.16.3-200.fc20.i686, came with the kernel drivers and modules for the PCI bridge missing. Can these be downloaded and installed from any of the repositories?

The following are excerpts from the output of lspci -nnvv:

2014-09-10 01:32:50 -0600 commented answer F18 browser hijacker malware problem

The internet is full of scam artists; you do have to be careful about what you click. But when you do get your browser problem sorted out, it would be wise to back up ALL your browser configuration files, preferably to another drive. Then if something like this happens again, you can just replace the config files without having to do another browser install.

2014-08-23 23:53:17 -0600 asked a question Latest kernel won't enable PCMCIA slot

Recently during a system update, yum installed a new kernel, 3.15.10-200. I've just discovered that when using that kernel, my laptop's PCMCIA card slot is disabled; none of my network cards nor my PCMCIA-to-USB adapter will function. I don't have that problem with my spare Fedora kernel, 3.11.10-301, or with any other Linux kernel I've used. Is there a workaround for this, or should I report this to Bugzilla and wait for the next kernel update?

Nothing to do

2014-08-20 22:09:24 -0600 commented question Unable to log in except as root

@QuLogic: I'm afraid this issue is moot for the time being; I've reinstalled Fedora 20 KDE. But just for the record I'll say that attempts to log in as user never even got to the point where I could launch the terminal window at all.

2014-08-13 11:14:01 -0600 commented question Unable to log in except as root

@hello: The phrase `red herring' is a slang expression meaning something that seems like it's highly relevant to an issue, but actually only serves as a distraction. Or as @QuLogic put it, `a derailment'. Click here for a more thorough definition.
And I don't know if this is another red herring or not, but I tried Fedora live media [Fedora 19] and it worked normally. Maybe I should check its /var/log/Xorg.*.log file against the one from the Fedora hard drive.

2014-08-12 22:44:15 -0600 commented question Unable to log in except as root

@QuLogic: Sorry it's taken so long to respond.
And I thought that the message generated by the yenta_cardbus driver that I posted above was an error msg. but maybe I was wrong.
At any rate, click here for the content of my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.
Thanx in advance for any help you can provide, and for recognizing that the Ubuntu v. Fedora issue was a red herring.

2014-08-09 10:43:54 -0600 commented question Unable to log in except as root

I repartitioned and reformatted the entire drive space when I reinstalled. I am not doing a dual boot; the drive in question is Fedora-only and Ubuntu is on a separate HDD. I have been using Fedora on this drive for months without difficulty until this behavior started a few days ago.

2014-08-09 10:31:22 -0600 answered a question Sound is not working on my new laptop under Fedora20

Go into System Settings > Multimedia > Audio and Video Settings and click the Audio Hardware Setup tab. There are 2 pulldown menus under both the Hardware and Device Configuration labels; use these to find the correct settings for your audio hardware.

If this doesn't work, there may be audio device drivers missing.

2014-08-09 01:34:08 -0600 commented question Unable to log in except as root

@hello: No. As @jstanley noted above, the kernel in question is 3.15.7-200.fc20.i686. And as I explained above, Ubuntu was on the hard drive before I installed Fedora.

2014-08-08 20:13:08 -0600 commented question Unable to log in except as root

Thanx for the advice about fpaste. I'll remember that in future if I need it. And the reason why ubuntu appears in the boot log is likely because I was running Ubuntu on this disk before installing Fedora [18], and apparently neither anaconda or fedup changed the disk name.

2014-08-08 19:56:20 -0600 edited question Unable to log in except as root

I'm running Fedora 20 KDE on i686 architecture. At present, I'm unable to log in as user, either on auto-login or manually; I can only log in manually as root. When I try to log in as user, I get an endless loop of KDE starting up, an error message displaying, and the login screen reappearing. The error message is as follows:

yenta_cardbus 0000:02:01.0: no bus associated! (try 'pci=assign-busses')

The assignment statement may belong in a configuration file, am I right? Any help given would be much appreciated.

The /var/log/messages can be found here.
