comment Fedora repository release cycle?
Generally not. There are a bunch of other repos that provide some benefit, but I can't think of one that had a new version of firefox for f14 and below. That being said, firefox is an odd one because you could download it directly from them as well (which I did at one point for f14).

comment Fedora repository release cycle?
If you run "yum update" on a regular basis you'll get any new versions for the OS version you're running... There is a graphical manager that defaults to running in your task tray that will show you when updates are available as well.

comment Using xrandr freezes computer completely
It's definitely a video driver bug, I agree. I've seen many-a-laptop with similar issues. Many times drivers work the first time, but not later times, etc.

comment How to configure Xorg for a dynamic dual monitor setup
Glad to hear you're checking it! I know people that have fried laptops from running with the lid closed. [if the CPU isn't running full out, it'll help of course].

comment Fedora 15 - Audio Configuration
The first, by the way, is for passing sound the HDMI output cable. IE, when you connect the computer to a TV via an HDMI cable you can have the sound go to the TV.

Is selinux turned on, and did you create those files/directories by hand and not set the context?

comment Maemo: how to get system information/specifications?
There is, but I haven't tried it, a compiler that you can put on the device itself. I tend to compile on my desktop when compiling for the N900 and the transferring the results there (via scp to it).

comment Which cell phones run Linux?
hhh: Ahh... that's not shell multitasking, that's terminal virtualization. I suspect on the N900 you could write something to switch between open xterm windows which would be similar, and then bind it to a key, but you're right that functionality isn't there now.

comment Which cell phones run Linux?
@hhh: I'm not trying to push the N900, FYI... But you keep asking questions! it does support chrooting and certainly has multi-tasking shells (and I'm not sure why you seem to think it doesn't).

@hhh: you can edit the keymap to make the keys be whatever you want. EG, adding a tilde and other things requires messing with the keymap.

comment Maemo: how to get system information/specifications?
Well, you can. I'm not sure why you'd want to since 'apt-cache search ffmpeg' shows me someone else already has!

It'll take a long time for someone to pry my N900 out of my cold hands. I LOVE the phone. It's like carrying a small computer around with me, complete with standard linux hackability.
