Skype needs a number of i686 RPMS to run on a 64 bit Fedora Linux machine.
yum install glibc.i686 alsa-lib.i686 libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686
VMWare Player 4.0.2 doesn't like the latest kernel that is available for Fedora 16. A bit of patching is required. http://weltall.heliohost.org/wordpress/2012/01/26/vmware-workstation-8-0-2-player-4-0-2-fix-for-linux-kernel-3-2-and-3-3/ A big thanks to those that posted the solution.
Make sure the config file is named something like myvpn.conf in
# ln -s /lib/systemd/system/openvpn@.service /email@example.comThen start and stop the service manually this way:
# systemctl start firstname.lastname@example.org # systemctl stop email@example.comOr enable it to start at boot time:
# systemctl enable firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks to those that took the time to post the solution here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=272612
Every time I receive a new kernel I must install the NVIDIA drivers.
- Boot the new kernel into single user mode. Add "single" and "vga=normal" to the grub boot command
- Switch to run level 3 with telinit 3
- 3. Log in and run the NVIDIA installer
