Fedora 10 - Common Bugs and Known Issues

This page documents common bugs in Fedora 10 and, if available, fixes or workarounds for these problems. If you find your problem in this page, do not file a bug for it. Where appropriate, a reference to the current bug(s) in Bugzilla is included.

My Bug Is Not Listed

Not every bug is listed in this page. You can use bugzilla queries in the bottom of this page for that. We have collected this based on commonly discussed issues in our mailing lists and forums. If you believe any particular bug report is missed out here and if you have wiki access, add it this page or contact Rahul Sundaram with the bugzilla report number explaining why you believe that particular report qualifies as a common issue.

Common Issues

GNOME session saving broken

link to this item - Bugzilla: 465321 and GNOME Bugzilla: 552387

The GNOME session management subsystem is being completely rewritten (see this page and this page), so this particular feature is in flux right now. This blog entry discusses a helpful workaround.

Xfce Window Manager and Window Manager Tweaks broken

link to this item - Bugzilla: 471927

Due to a gtk2 bug in F10, the Xfce tools for "Window Manager" and "Window Manager Tweaks" may give the following error:

"These settings cannot work with your current window manager (imsetting-xim)"

To work around this issue, run the following command in a terminal, and then restart:

su -c 'yum remove imsettings'

ATI Radeon problems

link to this item

It is mentioned in the release notes, but you might have overlooked it:

The kernel modesetting drivers for ATI Radeon are still in development and buggy. Some of the issues are tracked on xorg-x11-drv-ati while others are tracked with the kernel.

If you see display-related problems on ATI Radeon then you can try adding nomodeset to the kernel boot prompt in grub or permanently in /etc/grub.conf. Disabling compiz might also help.

Error upgrading systems with kernel-xen installed

link to this item - Bugzilla: 472462

If you try to upgrade a system with Package-x-generic-16.pngkernel-xen installed, anaconda will fail with an error message ending with:

 PackageSackError: No Package Matching kernel

Package-x-generic-16.pngkernel-xen has been removed from Fedora and no upgrade exists in Fedora 10. Xen host services are now provided by Package-x-generic-16.pngxenner. Remove kernel-xen from your system and the upgrade will complete normally.
