Fedora Core 2 is very outdated. Can you please try any live Fedora (12, 13, rawhide)?

We are sorry, but the Fedora Project is no longer releasing bug fixes or any other updates for this version of Fedora. This bug will be set to CLOSED:WONTFIX to reflect this, but please reopen it if the problem persists after upgrading to the latest version of Fedora, which is available from:
