I'm the Fedora Cloud Architect at Red Hat.

I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong.

comment Shells in tabbed windows in a terminal
Looks like Fedora has a git snapshot of 4.1 prerelease; that does include vertical split (and I checked that Fedora isn't just patching it in).

comment 8086 emulator for unix-like OSs?
@EvanTeitelman No. Community wiki basically just invites unmaintained lists of random links. If the question seems too broad or otherwise like there's no real correct answer, it should be closed.

@kikumbob To make this more helpful to someone in the future, I'm going to edit the answer to reflect the above, roll back your question to the previous version, and delete all this chit-chat. :)

If you set up the same repo with multiple sources, it will fall back. If you have multiple repositories configured but one doesn't work, it takes the conservative choice of bailing out.

Try yum --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo=dvd ... to tell it to not use any other repositories. (Or edit the .repo files to disable them.)

comment Similar method to /etc/init.d
Yes, although I think the sorting is actually alphabetical — 99 is the largest practical number. And 95 should be well after network, which is normally at 10. So, I kind of suspect that your actual problem is something else.

comment Similar method to /etc/init.d
See the line # chkconfig: 2345 95 05? The "95" is the order in which it will start. Look at /etc/rc3.d/S* (or rc5.d if you're booting to a GUI) -- everything that's numbered after 95 will load before your service starts. (This is assuming you've enabled this script with the chkconfig command.)
