Hello, I had FC9 installed for 2-3 months and decided to move to FC11. In the FC9 desktop (GNOME) I had "gkrellm" monitor started by entry in the ~/.gnome2/session files and also a "gnome-terminal" with a particular geometry which calls "/bin/tcsh -c top". I also have ~/bin/chtitle_linux script which sends particular codes to set the title of the gnome-terminal. At some point I decided to move to FC11 (mostly because I couldn't figure out how to get sources for recompiling the kernel - searched the install DVD but found only empty sources directory). I downloaded the 4GB iso image file and burned it on a DVD, did "tar ...; gzip ..." for my home directory and burned it on another DVD, rebooted with the FC11 DVD, selected "upgrade existing system" option (maybe it was a mistake? Maybe I should've selected "install" instead of "upgrade"?) and started the upgrade. After the system had been upgraded (I thought it'll allow me to change drivers compiled so I'll add SCSI U320 card support in addition to SAS I'm currently running on but apparently it just retained drivers configuration from FC9). After finishing the upgrade and rebooting, I was glad to see that my desktop background, two launchers of gnome-terminal (at different sizes and locations) and 3 launchers of "nedit <file>" retained. However, few things were changed/lost: 1) When activating the launcher of the "gnome-terminal", there is an error messae at the beginning: Unknown colorls variable `rs'. I did some searching, copied "/etc/DIR_COLORS" to "~/.dir_colors", commented the line with "CAPABILITY" but still the same error persists. 2) Also about gnome-terminal start: apparently it doesn't sources the ~/.tcshrc, maybe for the same reason it fails with the "colors" error above. 3) An attempt to run "chtitle_linux" tcsh script (which just prints the codes to change the title) results in the same error message: Unknown colorls variable `rs'. It looks like running tcsh encounters this error. 4) The "gkrellm" didn't open despite being in the ~/.gnome2/session file. Attempting to call it manually resulted in the following error: <[email protected] Attempting to recompile the sources of gkrellm resulted in the error message: Package libpng12 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libpng12.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable 5) Attempting to start "gnome-terminal in a command line (from gnome-terminal already opened by the launcher) results in the terminal window opening for a fraction of a second then closes with system alert sound without displayinh anything. At the first reboot after the upgrade it printed something about Gnome config daemon not avaliable (something like that) but after additional reboots nothing is printed. 6) SELinux warns about some processes attempting various violations with the first being: SELinux is preventing gdm-session-wor (xdm_t) "unlink" to .dmrc (user_home_t). Can it be the cause of these multiple problems: changed policies of what's allowed? I don't have enough internal LINUX knowledge to understand the consequences of changing various booleans in the SELinux: can I make my PC volunerable to external attack by allowing something? ================================================== These are the things I see ringht now. I have about 12 years of UNIX/LINUX experience at work as a user but it's the first time I'm my own sys-op by installing LINUX at home so I'm prone to many beginners errors. Any ideas as to how to fix these problems? Are the fixes of the type "edit some configuration file" or a complete system install is required? I remember reading that upgrading from FC9 to FC11 isn't supported, maybe I'm punished for trying it anyway? Thanks in advance for any help, Arie.
