For this locking assertion failure:

 java: xcb_xlib.c:82: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed

Fix for sun-java5-bin:

 sed -i 's/XINERAMA/FAKEEXTN/g' /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.14/jre/lib/amd64/xawt/libmawt.so

Fix for sun-java6-bin:

 sed -i 's/XINERAMA/FAKEEXTN/g' /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0.5/jre/lib/amd64/xawt/libmawt.so

New Installation Checklist

  • Add myself to the wheel group and make the wheel group a super user group.
 su -c 'visudo' # Uncomment: %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
 su -c 'usermod -aG wheel mbooth'
  • Set menu key as the compose key: Keyboard Prefs->Layouts->Layout Options->Compose Key Position
  • Setup mail notifications: sudo yum install mail-notification
  • Add a shortcut to a bigger terminal: gnome-terminal --geometry 120x60
 tar -xzvf libflashplayer-10.0.22.87.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
 sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
  • Mount remote shares.
 su -c 'echo "ic:/raid        /mnt/raid       nfs defaults    0 0" >> /etc/fstab'
  • Use vim alias even when root. /etc/profile.d/vim.sh
 if [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" -o -n "$KSH_VERSION" -o -n "$ZSH_VERSION" ]; then
 #  [ -x //usr/bin/id ] || return
 #  [ //usr/bin/id -u -le 100 ] && return
   # for bash and zsh, only if no alias is already set
   alias vi >/dev/null 2>&1 || alias vi=vim
 fi
