Description of problem:
1. LIRC-GPIO kernel module cannot compile with distribution kernel. It's used
for remote IR control with bttv cards like AverMedia. As on
http://www.lirc.org/html/install.html is said: "Don't use any kernel sources
that have been modified for your distribution" and unfortunately, that's true.
PLD distribution provides this driver as an rpm:
would RedHat be able to do that this way? I don't want to use vanilla kernels on
my desktop PC!
2. ee - electric eyes are used by mc (Midnight Commander) to open jpeg's. It was
present on rh7.x and then gone forever!
3. rarlnx - rar and unrar for Linux, many winpeople uses winrar to pack their
files. This also can be configured to work with mc!
4. jikes - present on rh7.x, nice java compiler still used by many programmers
5. H.323 (gnomemeeting) and Quake connection tracking modules for 2.4 kernels
(to use with NAT gateways), they can be found in patch-o-matic on
www.iptables.org, would be gread to find them (able to work!) on distribution
6. Locking session button (applet) should be present on default bottom panel of
7. Floppy disk icon (used to access FDD by beginers) is present by default only
for KDE, should be also present on GNOME.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Many tuning works must be done to work with it comfortable way
Expected Results: Would be great to use these features in default distribution
The screen lock button is on the main menu. jikes was removed due to it being
not-so-useful without a JVM. Assigning to mc for the ee problem, it can then be
bounced to the kernel for the kernel drivers. :)
The ee stuff is a duplicate of bug 76704, bouncing to kernel :)
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
