GDM sometimes won't load desktop on fedora18

0 votes

For some reason, there are times when I log into the system and it simply won't load the desktop. The GDM shows me the login prompt, I select my username, enter my password, and it says 'Logged In' with the
little green checkmark next to it. But it just sits there. It doesn't load the desktop and the only way to get to the desktop is to restart the system and log in again.

This happens with no rhyme or reason. Just 'sometimes' and always at system boot.

I'm running F18, fully patched, with XFCE as the DE.

I have two F18 systems.

1) when I open Connect to server I see the list of recent connected server and I have also the Explore button
2) in a fresh installed system I don't have the server list and also explore button is missing

Both system connect each other fine with smb or sftp. What am I missing??

Is there a simple way of changing the font used by lpr to print out a text file,
after say "lpr foo.txt" on a Fedora-18 CUPS printer?

The font in my case is much too small for my eyesight.

We are developing internal software using MySql dB and are planning to use Fedora for the server.

The question is how do we know that this hardware (motherboard, CPU) really support Fedora version 18 or 19? We are looking at mobo from Asus or Intel or Gigabyte, but did not find firm answer. We did not find the info from mobo websites either.

The mobo that got our interest are the ones with H77 or Z77 or H87 chipsets.

Is there any URL for me to get the information we need?
