http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I am have home network of two computers, a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is old and does not run compiz fusion on it, the laptop does. Whenever I update the laptop, using the yum in the terminal, in middle of the process the terminal window moves up to the left hand corner of the screen placing its top section underneath the upper task bar – the only way then to exit is to type “exit” for the very top of the terminal window is out of view. Furthermore, it then opens any new terminal windows in the same location. In addition to that, I can not switch to different desktops as that feature becomes frozen at the same time. All of this clears up if I log off and then log back on, until the next time I do an update. It is not some huge deal to me, but thought I would bring attention to it. Oh - it does not happen to the desktop, but only the laptop. Second, the desktop, durring updating, left a message I had not seen before – it said: “warning: /etc/cups/cupsd.conf created as /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew” while in the update process. Is this something I need to be concerned with? I have noticed the computer now takes longer to start up in the morning, acting more like Fedora 10 than Fedora 11, ever sense yesterdays update - but only on the desktop. (HowTos)
