SOLVED: Adobe AIR installation problem on Fedora 10 x86_64

Adobe AIR installation fails on Fedora 10 x86_64 without any explanations. It just says:

An error occurred while installing Adobe AIR. Installation may not be allowed by your administrator. Please contact your administrator.

The reason is some missing i386 packages. You just have to run following command:

yum install gtk2-devel.i386 nss.i386 libxml2-devel.i386 libxslt.i386 gnome-keyring.i386 rpm-devel.i386

You may already have some these packages. Don’t worry about that, yum will skip them. After yum finishes, retry installation of AIR, it should work now.

Fedora 10 mouse pointer problem

I’ve just discovered that when intalling Fedora 10 on some computer causes this problem. Problem start from instalation: there is no pointer for mouse in Anaconda and further in the system. It is a little bit dificult but install system with keaboard only, then when system installed and running do the following steps to fix this issue:

# yum install system-config-display

Open system-config-display and just press “OK” button. It will generate xorg.conf file in /etc/X11.
Then open /etc/X11/xorg.conf and in section “Device” add following two lines

Option     "HWCursor"     "off"
Option     "SWcursor"     "True"

Save file and restart your X server. It have to work now.

Red5 installation on Fedora 8

I was trying to install Red5 on Fedora 8 for about 3 days :) . I was using this tutorial, which is called Setting up Red5 on Fedora Core 4, to do that. I was using it because I have previously used this howto and had success. But this time it was awful :)
Just after installing java and ant and exporting path variables I was trying to build Red5, but I was getting a lot of unresolved dependencies and of course build failed. After some googling I understood that just Red5 moved to googlecode and Ivy (dependency manager for java) was trying to find dependencies from old repositories. Just if you download 0.6.3 version of Red5 as mentioned in howto you will find it impossible to compile Red5 :)
I have found the new howto, which is located here, which does not describe howto install java, but does describe howto install latest SVN version of Red5. This time Ivy was searching dependencies on googlecode, and everything worked this time :)
Just I will ask to Red5 to remove old howto (or modify it), because I think there will be many people like me that will spend 3 days on Red5 installation

Good luck
