I'm not sure why, but pear does not respect the php.ini for the whole system when it comes to memory limits. When trying to install some new pecl packages I got an error like 'Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted'. To fix this, first you try changing the system php.ini. But that doesn't work. Then I tried setting the php.ini setting for pear and pecl. Still a no go. Then I found agile approach | HOWTO: Install PECL APC Cache on CentOS (without XAMPP), which detailed the way! Inside '/usr/share/pear/pearcmd.php' add the following to the beginning '@ini_set('memory_limit', '16M');'

Highpoint RocketRAID 1742 in Fedora 12I bought this RAID card and wanted to use it in Fedora 12. HighPoint hasn't published the drivers for Fedora 12. So I decided to build them myself with the open source drivers found on the following website
HighPoint-Support-Bios + Driver - includes docs and rr1742 driver code.
I decided to create a liveusb drive to compile the kernel module for the RocketRAID 1742. I quickly created a liveusb using liveusb-creator but the first attempt failed because using 'yum install kernel-header' pulled kernel's headers that didn't match with the currently running kernel version.

Fedora 8I can't believe how fast Fedora moves. Just a month ago I was working on Fedora 7. I'm interested to see how the install/upgrade goes from 7 to 8. Cool stuff.

Fedora 7I've decided to give Fedora Core another go. Last time I installed a Fedora Core it was at 2. Was pretty good but I found it to be a moving target. Upgrades were not seemless.
Fedora Core 7 was nice and easy to install. However, when up and running I didn't see a mouse cursor. However, I could left click and see context menus. I turned on the option to highlight the cursor using the CTRL key...and searched the web.
I found that it was an issue with the hardware cursor. So I had to add
Option "HWCursor" "off"
to the Device section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
So I'm trying the binary drivers on livna.org.
To install, it is really easy, download and install: http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-7.rpm
Once that is installed, you can do a:
yum install kmod-nvidia
then configure it using:
Its working. Yeah!
